On my first official day away from school, I made a list:
~ Do laundry
~ Empty dishwasher
~ Reload dishwasher
~ Water plants and flowers
~ Plan dinner
~ Peel wrappers from crayons (more on that here)
... and finally:
~ Organize THE CLOSET
I know. You're thinking "What's the big deal?"
And. Then. We. Open. The. Doors.
Wrapping paper. Ballgowns. Coats. Bubble wrap. Drawers filled with scrapbook paper. A crayon maker. The makings of a Sneetch shirt. Gift bags. Photos.
Unbeknownst to me, three members of Aragog's family were also hiding away in there.
Yes, relatives of A-r-a-g-o-g.
Go ahead and do the heebie-jeebie dance. I certainly did.
Two hours, a mug of coffee, multiple passes with the vacuum, and seventeen Mentos later, here's where we're at:
What an improvement. Since this is the only closet in my crafty nook, it was important to get everything sorted and organized in it so I may retrieve needed items unimpeded as I get my creative groove on for the next few weeks.
I WILL be creative this summer.
