Sorry, guys, no cartoon today. I had a cool idea and everything, but instead of drawing, I cleaned my house! Well, one tiny part of it anyway...
For the longest time our nice wide hall upstairs has been a catch-all for stuff we're just not sure where to put. My domestic mantra is, "a place for everything and everything in it's place," which can be difficult in a 1200 square foot house without even a linen closet to its name.
One of the biggest obstacles was my wonderful "craft box," where I stored everything about which I once said, "OoOh, I can makes something with that." Let me just say, that I had already "pared down" my multiple huge boxes to one large bin of "materials" when we moved into our new place.
But, my bin, like everything else needed a "place" and that place wasn't in the hall. Since I needed a place that was both accessible and out-of-the-way, I decided to use one of those under-the-bed storage bins that we had (also in my hall) and keep my craft stuff under the bed.
I got rid of lots of stuff, like all my candle making and gallery glass supplies and even found a canvas-board (for paintings) buried amongst the clutter of the bin!
I got rid of two-thirds of my supplies and now everything is tucked neatly under my bed, where I can reach it if I have a creative moment. I'm very proud of myself!
Timothy got a taste of a real peach today. He's pretty proud of himself, too!
