Weekend projects

We had a great Thanksgiving last week! My parents went out of town to visit some of my siblings, so those of us left here decided to have a "Pie Night" on Wednesday. We had pizza "pie" and a bunch of pies for dessert. The kids had a blast playing with their cousins, and the adults had fun catching up and doing a bit of crafting.

I had some visions of grandeur during the week.  I decided I wanted to use the flooring we took out of the kitchen to replace some of the really gross carpet in the girls room.  Lucky for me, I have a husband who can make my strange requests into reality.  It looks great and hopefully it will help with Sweetie's allergies as well.

I also had an inspiration to organize our entry.  Shoes, hats, gloves, snowpants, coats, and boots for 7 people take up a lot of room.  A lot more than I was giving them space for, so it always looked awful.  This solution opens up the front room and gives space for so much more stuff!  I love it!

I've also been playing with a super cute baby and some yarn.  :)  I have some super cute scarves to show for it.  I'm hoping to sell some at my next craft show. 

Oh yea, one more organization project.  My mom in law got me this awesome drawer organizer.  I switched around the placement of some of our stuff to use it to a better extent.  Also... LOVING IT!

So, this Thanksgiving I'm thankful for organization.  LOL!  Oh, and my amazing husband, my sweet children, our home, and sooo much more.  Life is good.
