Felt Fever

A couple of Christmases ago the "felt bug" struck and I came down with a bad case of felt fever. It began with the creation of a trio of ornaments found online that became my must-do of the season. I think I made 7 sets. This was "P.P." (Pre-Pinterest) and now I don't even know where I got the idea for this particular set. I wasn't exactly organized at the time. What am I saying. I'm not organized now.

Night and Day Difference

Remember how I said I was going to try and spend every evening now that daylight savings time is over (since it gets dark so early) doing at least one small thing to keep the ball rolling in my efforts to get my house in shape by next week? Well, that was laughable. Here is a picture of me at the end of each day as the sun sets:

Even trying to do one small thing each evening has been a flop, except a couple of nights ago when I polished a bunch of silver and then last night when I ran errands.

However, I have been an entirely different creature in the mornings. Here I am before work each day:

Yeah, we'll just see about that.

Before, After and Amazing

On Friday morning, the day after my clean out of the loft room, I was overcome with the realization that if it was going to get painted, it had to happen right then. So this project jumped ahead of all others and I got at it. Hurricane Sandy was still passing by to our East, merely belting us with wind and rain, unlike those poor souls who have been so hard hit. Even with only tropical storm conditions, leaving the house wasn't a consideration. It made staying in doing this daunting project a little easier. I got going despite the close quarters of all the stuff I had just rearranged in the room the day before. There's still much to be done in here but I've already gotten rid of more things since I took the picture on the right.

On Saturday, the great reorganization of the bathroom cabinet began:
