Under the wire


Each January my husband, Razor, and I write a list of hopes, dreams and plans for the year ahead.  It's a giant fist bump to the soul when come the end of December we can look at the list and cross off all the things we've successfully completed.  


One thing that had been on the list for two years running was painting the play room.  So, guess what my girls and I did the day of New Year's Eve?  Yep.  We buckled down and painted that play room.  Boom.  Done. Check.  Scratchy-scratchy off the list.  And not because we had to but because we wanted to.  

See that alcove in the photo above?  Wait until you see what it's now become.

A little place for a quilt ladder perhaps?

How exciting!!! Love the creamy white color you put on the paneled walls. Awesome!

That's a nice way to start the new year!

Did Razor build a desk in there for you?
Nice way to bond with your girls and give them some practical experience in painting a room....every girl needs to know that!

I'll be watching :0),
Happy Sewing

I love a mystery!!! It is so much fun to change up a room. I know the play room doesn't need to be a play room anymore, but I bet it will still be a fun room.

Can't wait to see the whole thing! :)

I've never been a list gal, but my sister has persuaded me to begin. You are both sooo right! I love that feeling of scratching something off the list. I feel so accomplished when I do! Congrats!! Looking forward to seeing that alcove. :)

What a good idea - an actual list. I should do that. We should do that. I think I've become afraid of having dreams these last few years.
