Hope you all had a safe and fun Halloween! We dressed the pups up and handed out candy. Normally we dont’t have any trick or treaters, this year whoa! We ran out of candy there were so many! We enjoyed seeing all the kids, the pups… Not so happy with their wardrobe.
I can’t believe it is November already (since our last ivf attempt failed, we are retrying in January and I was bummed thinking how far off that was, but time is flyin!) Anyway sooo I am thinking I am going to start decorating for Christmas today. I want to enjoy the decorations longer than a few weeks and I think its a nice addition for Thanksgiving dinner. So off to our warehouse (it’s my husband’s business but I steal space for storage haha) we are getting our decorations and I am starting the decorating festivities!
I seem to be dragging a bit today. These blustery fall days are so pretty but they also make me want to stay bundled up. Not so good for getting things done. I am hoping to finish up the fabric organization that I started yesterday. I wrap my fabric on comic book boards, but I have gotten a little behind. A little coffee and hopefully a lot of progress before we dress up the pups to greet our trick or treaters tonight!
Maybe Miss Bentley will be of some help today… (Probably not, she is best at observing )
I finished another painting project but I can’t post photos until I make curtains for the glass doors. So… hopefully I will get those done and be able to post pictures soon. In the meantime I think I went a little overboard on organizing. A bit of nesting OCD. My studio is in the bottom floor of our home. I don’t like to call it a basement because it is not, it is fully finished, with a door to outside, windows etc. So I call it the bottom floor. Anyway…. we have an a/c storage room and a storage room where our boiler is. I completely emptied out both rooms, scrubbed and scoured, organized everything and neatly put everything in it’s place. My poor husband was such a trooper taking trip after trip to donation. What got me started on this is that we closed our physical boutique location and are in the process of moving the whole store online. Well I need to make room for inventory storage and for display furniture that I want to bring home to decorate the house and studio. So it was a major domino effect. I am in love with the result though! We haven’t been this organized since we bought this house almost 8 years ago!
Because I was off playing around with totes and labels, the Boutique didn’t get updated/the online store had no products added for the past few days. So this morning we ( Miss Lily) and I are playing catch up. Then for more organizing of the studio to bring yet more stuff home from the boutique I think Lily decided she wanted the day off….
I am getting things checked off my to do list a few at a time! I finished two projects yesterday… Here is one of them. A beautiful hutch with a ton of character!
I bought this buffet from a dear friend of mine and have had it for a few years. I really wanted to brighten up the room and I think a makeover is just what this buffet needed. *if you spot paint anywhere it ahouldn’t be, don’t tell me. I dripped the can of paint and paint went everywhere… What a nughtmare!*
