I'm really just redoing a closet.  It's in my girls' room.  There are 3-soon-to-be-4 of them in the one room with a waaaaaaaaaaaay small closet.  We need space for lots of dresses and some place for shirts and shorts.  More space for socks and undies.  Then the shoes.

I'll post measurements and a pic soon.  Gotta go feed a baby for now.

DH just vacated his half of the big closet in my January room! He's a big comic book nerd and has loads of boxes of them. He took the closet in the spare room, and he left his shelves for me!

ugh!!!  I just can't seem to get going in the evenings.  I had knee surgery on 12-27 and this is my last week of PT.  I don't get home from that until 6 p.m. then once I get supper ready and eat.  I really don't feel like doing anything.  I guess I really need to get over it and get moving.

Working on the craft area first:
1. finding some sort of extra lighting
done, sort of
2. getting all the craft supplies unpacked (no more cardboard boxes!)
mostly done, DH has to carry the boxes up for me though
3. curtain for the window
found material I like, just have to go back and buy it and make them
4. make room for everything (haha)
DH took care of that by vacating the closet and claiming another.
5. find a way to hang my whiteboard and cutting mat/ruler without making holes in the paneling?
I don't know

How about those Contact Brand hooks.  I don't know if the hook part is too big for the hole or not.  The hooks have a sticky stuff on the back.  No residue left when you remove it.  It is kind of like poster-tac.

The board comes with these white hook sort of things that you're supposed to screw into the wall and then hang the whiteboard on them, they slip between the frame and the back, so there aren't any holes in the board. I wonder if I could adapt the included hangers.
As for the cutting mat and ruler, those will be hung in the closet, I think. I don't mind holes in the paneling there.

I haven't done a darned thing...been sick most of the month, so not a lot happening lol

"just keep crafting, just keep crafting"

Sorry I've been gone so long. Am trying to get back on the boards. Body's thrown me for a few loops these past months and am still learning to adjust. Thanks for your patience.

ok I need some advice please.  sorry this is a terrible picture for what I need advice for, but it was one I had and I haven't been motivated to take a new one.  we have a tiny, tiny apartment.  (We live in San Francisco!  you know what rents are like there!)  With an ugly carpet.  So, if you can see in the back of the picture, the "living room" area, what can I do with that wall area in to the right (as you're looking at the pic) of the couch?  I was thinking maybe very shallow shelves with leaning artwork or small artsy things?  our walls are drywall so we can't do anything too heavy.  or a small small table with a plant on it?  because we love plants.  or just some pictures/artwork hung directly on the walls?  I know that lamp is ugly, but it was a handmedown, plus it's handy for reading or knitting in that corner... should we get rid of it and get a cuter one?  we should, right?  why am I even asking? and I know that is a dining room chair in the living room, and as part of this craft-a-long, we ordered a new chair and coffee table, so that will be gone!  you'll see in the "after" photos.   

ok enough babble!  any ideas about what to do with that blank wall space back there?  or any other ideas?  thanks!

I've made some progress...this forum inspired me to finish an endtable that I'd been meaning to decorate for ages now.  I also painted the bedroom with stripes and finally got a real bed (as opposed to box spring and mattress on the floor, which I've done for seven years).

Now I just need to get moving and get some photos...
