It’s 4:45 a.m. Sunday morning. I’ve been awake for the last 3 hours and not by choice I might add. I woke up coughing and sneezing and could not go back to sleep. I decided to get just get up and have that first cup of coffee before the no-caffeine headache set in. Well that, plus take some cold medicine and hope this oncoming cold goes away quickly. I thought I would just write a quick recap of my last week’s personal challenge to myself. Getting closer to being organized meant I had to give some messy craft storage areas a much need sorting and cleaning. I am the master of hide everything you can in spaces people won’t look! I told myself for one week I would focus on sprucing up my walls, using only what I already had. And that’s exactly what I did for 5 days.
I used a variety of items in my personal challenge; charger plate, mirror, cards, scrapbook paper, color printer and the internet, glitter, buttons, fabric, ribbon, picture frames, wood from a broken shelf, and a bulletin board. It’s amazing what can be created by shopping your house and thinking out of the box. Here’s a recap of last weeks posts. I’ve also added each item to my Project Gallery.
Day 1 – I repurposed an old bulletin board by adding some paisley fabric, perfect for my “woman cave”.
Day 2 – I added to my Wizard of Oz themed entry wall with a picture of Dorothy’s red shoes all glittered up.
Day 3 – I created a wall mirror using a charger plate, small mirror and mosaic tiles.
Day 4 – I framed scrapbook paper, a card, and added a sconce to the wall mirror and a framed picture I bought over a year ago and never hung.
Day 5 – Even though I had previously created a command station in my kitchen we were still just tossing our car keys on the counter. That’s what prompted me to create the key board holder. I know it’s only been up for 2 days, but so far so good! I guess time will tell how disciplined we can be.
There you have it. Not to bad, right? Have you shopped your house and added anything to your walls lately? Have a fabulous Sunday. I think I’m going to lay low and ward off the bug. I’m sure a nap will be needed some time today. I don’t have time to be sick! It’s going to be a busy week, lot’s going on. Have a great Sunday!
