Hi everyone! It's been a busy few days, and I want to start by saying thanks again for everyone who entered my giveaway and visited me over the weekend. The new traffic coming from Today's Creative Blog is so much fun! I have really been trying to visit each of you in return, but please forgive me if I didn't make it to you.
Maybe when you see what I've been up to over the past few days you will cut me a little slack. I am trying to convert this pretty, organized and neat guest room into the baby's room:
How far do you think I've gotten? Yeah, not so far. Some of you have commented to me in the past that you didn't know where I got my energy. Well, I don't have it anymore! Even thinking about climbing the stairs makes me exhausted. This is why people should really start these projects earlier than 8 1/2 months into pregnancy.
In addition to organizing the baby's room, I needed to come up with a storage solution for all the things that are being re-zoned out of the guest room. So this space in the upstairs loft...
...got a new armoire instead. For those of you who have Craig's List in your town, I will again sing it's praises. This new armoire was only $100!
Thank God it has a ton of space, so it can hold a bunch of stuff that used to live in the guest room.
The wrapping paper has a new home in the loft too. I got sick of pawing through it when it lived underneath the guest room bed. Now at least I can see what I have so I don't keep buying more and more Christmas paper on clearance!
So there you go. The big switch-a roo has begun in my house, and it has a bit of a deadline (say about three weeks, if this baby decides not to arrive until my actual due date)! I really hope that I'll be able to show you a somewhat completed baby's room in the next week or so. Otherwise I'll have to tromp down to the basement and just take photos of some baby clothes that still need to be washed and are sitting in a box somewhere. Yikes!
