Of EVERYTHING. At least this 'road block' is actually a good thing. It is a step in the direction we want to go.
I have been SO busy -- I got a promotion (Yay me!) So I have kept my head down at work getting into my new role.
We are also in the process of staging our home....that's right. We are selling our house. It scares the daylights out of me but I am so excited at the same time. The agent is going to come by next week to take pictures and list the house. SO that means I have to deep clean the house along with all the other things I need to get done this weekend. I have no idea how I am going to fit it all in!! I will need help from J in a big way! We have to remove most of the person items from view and organize all the closets. Have you ever looked at a home where someone was currently living? You know you opened closets and cabinets. So we have a lot of work to do in a short amount of time.
So if my posts over the next week plus lack a little substance or I don't post at all, please bear with me, Life is happening!
Have you seen this blog -- Ana White: Homemaker?! It is amazing!! SHE is unbelievable!! She DIYs all kinds of furniture. THEN she posts step by step instructions on what to do, what you will need and the estimated cost! I LOVE it! One of my co-workers introduced me to it. They made the bed: Instructions & Co-Worker/wife result
I have high hopes of making a few pieces for our next home. I can't wait!! I don't know how excited J will be when he sees the few I have already selected but I can do it myself if he isn't interested haha! Here are the few projects I have selected:
OR THIS nightstand -- it is cheaper lol BUT it won't match...unless I make 2....hmmm all the decisions!
But like I said, before we can really get into any of this, we have to stage and sell our current home. First, we need to clean. I have to figure out how to prioritize everything...invitations HAVE to be out by next week. Jewelry needs to be finished soon so I am not crunched for time. I re-designed it and it is beautiful BUT now each piece will take longer to make. I also wanted to make a dress for my cousin's wedding...that may have to be the very last thing I try to get done . =( that is SAD haha!
I am trying to keep up with all the blogging going on, but with everything else going on, something has to give and unfortunately it is blogland =( I will keep up as best as I can and hopefully get everything finished quickly.
In the meantime, check out Ana White -- she is a ROCKSTAR. She also has a 'brag blog' where individuals who have used her design/instructions have posted pictures of THEIR results. Have fun!
PRAY in the meantime that I get everything done and can be back to 'normal' by next week =)
HAPPY FRIDAY EVE!
