This was the current state of my dining room a couple of weeks ago.
It has been this way for a couple of months. So in the dining room there are several projects going on in here. As I'm going through different parts of the house working on these "projects", I'm finding more and more stuff that we don't need, want or use. I've been making a pile in the dining room and need to take it to a donation center. This morning I put most of it in large boxes, so it doesn't quite look this bad anymore, but it's still a pile of stuff in my dining room. A project unfinished. FOCUS.
All the stamps and paper on the table was my attempt weeks ago to make some birthday cards for the year. I pulled out all of my cards (I've made or sent to me) and the corresponding stamp sets to see what I could make without buying anything. I actually designed cards and cut all of the paper required, stacked it on the dining table and that's where it has stayed. I need to stamp and assemble the cards to complete this project. Sounds simple, but yet I haven't done anything about it. FOCUS.
The other item on the dining table are my new apothecary jars I bought to decorate the tops of my kitchen cabinets.
Aren't they pretty? After weeks of them sitting on the dining table, I finally asked Brandon to put them on top of the cabinets this past weekend. It's only the start of a collection, but so far I really like it. Over the years, I'll fill it up and it won't look so empty.
Two other bigger projects will be worked on this weekend - the completion of the playroom for the 29 day challenge I've joined and Brandon is re-doing my laundry room for my birthday (I chose a shade of purple). I specifically asked that that be my birthday present. I'm very excited! I'll keep you updated on both, as I know you will be waiting on pins and needles for the results! ;)
