What I Cleaned in October

In October I cleaned our bedroom.  It's (ridiculously) the biggest room in our house.  (I want to carve off a corner of our bedroom and attach it to the kitchen.)  Because of its size, it sort of became a depository for random furniture and belongings that didn't have a home otherwise.

Then I got tired of that.

I took back our bedroom.  I moved furniture out and moved around the existing furniture (by I, I mean Adam and strong children moved things, I pointed directions).

I created a little seating area in the corner.


Then, I tackled the dresser.  Its drawers contain craft and sewing supplies because all of our clothes are housed in our closet.  I wish I had a before picture of the drawers to show you.  (No I don't, you'd be horrified.)

They were scary drawers.  The kind of place where you had to leave a trail of bread crumbs to find your way out.  I took everything out and sorted and sifted and ended up with this.


And this.



I even got exceptionally carried away (because I love organizing and compartmentalizing as much as the next person) and wrapped up all the loose, random lengths of ribbon.


Oh, what a thing of beauty is a little organization!

(I took pictures in case it doesn't last.)

My sewing/craft areas need you Marianne. Since you are the one that can actually sew. You sew and I'll organize.
