2008 Resolution...

Well, it's now 2008! Have you've made some resolutions for the new year? I've only made one that I intend to stick with & that's to try to get more organized. However, I should consider several other resolutions, but this one is already HUGE to begin with! LOL We started this mission in 2007 by getting rid of stuff in garage sales. We had 5 sales last summer & made a good dent in the excess, not to mention a good chunk of extra cash! (always a good incentive!) We have this huge room upstairs that we refer to as the "Yellow Room" because of the very ugly yellow shag carpet & the yellowish wallpaper, that's falling off the walls. We use it for storage because our house has no attic or basement & the garage is too small to be useful for any kind of extra storage. The yellow room is also where I have my scrap space & a craft space. I plan on getting rid of quite a bit of my crafting stuff because I don't plan on using many of the items & would like to move my computer to that area in the near future. This will also free up a large corner in Brooke's bedroom, as well. I also need to move my treadmill upstairs too. Nothing like doing a little stairstepping as a warm-up for walking. I'll be pooped before I even get there! LOL-JK (sorta)

We did make a major update on our Master Bedroom this fall, I am so happy to say. It's not totally done though, as we're going to get new furniture soon, so I have no drapes or new bedding yet & some of the old furniture is still being used in the meantime. I will post the before/after shots when we get that final stage & before it gets messy again! Just a little visual for you to imagine, if you will, an OLD, dingy, ORANGE, shag carpet & only 2 little reading lamps mounted to one wall! I'm sure the carpet is original to the house when it was built in 1978! Wait until you see the pictures of the laundry room carpet ~ it's shagadelic baby!! THAT'S the next project & Alan knows it's supposed to be too.

I am currently working on a challenge from to do a Scrapbook layout a day for the month of January on BigPicturescrapbooking.com

Hi Beth....I sure enjoyed reading this section of your blog. I am anxious to see the before and after pictures when you put them on. You just had me laughing so hard when you wrote the words, "shagadelic baby!" Boy, do I remember those days! HA!!!!
