This week I am locked away working on my next book. It turns out that I write better when I don’t have to do 8 loads of laundry a day or have to grade a dozen math papers. So I have gone into hiding for a few days to get the first draft finished. I’ll be back next week, but while I am away I thought I’d remind you of a few older projects in case you’re in the mood for something fun to do.
- We just finished moving kids’ bedroom around and the boy’s Lego shelves are being overhauled. I thought I’d show you these giant Legos I made a few years ago that we put on the shelves to add a bit of a break from the bright colors and plastic.
- Also last week I was adding some pumpkins to the front porch and I was enjoying the fun of my painted houndstooth rug and I thought I’d share it with you in case you want to paint one for yourself!
- The last big thing we worked on last weekend was cleaning out the kids’ school lockers. Several years ago I found these old lockers at a flea market and because they were bright yellow the price was low. No one wanted yellow lockers! But a few cans of white spray paint later and they were perfect in my living room. My school kids actually keep their school books in there and the extra lockers hold Wii games and extra school books.
I am always up to a something around the house and I am hoping to do some new arranging over the next few weeks in the living areas. But don’t tell James. I like to surprise him.
