She pleaded...

She gave me that look and pointed at the container of
pureed spinach and potatoes.
Her cry said "I am a big girl, I can do it myself."
She pleaded "I have been feeding myself finger foods for months,
I know I can handle pureed too!"
What was a mother to do?

Crafty space {basement makeover}

I have been dreaming of a place where I can be artsy and craftsy...
a place where I can sit down in my spare minutes
and be creative...
a place where I can leave a mess and pick up where I left off...
a place for my mind to wander and my hands to create!
So I created space in the basement.

Before


 After
I took 3 Queen/King flatsheets and nailed them to the ceiling beams....looks
sort of pillowy.
I measured the area for carpet and got a 12x13 remnant and put
carpet tape around the edges and laid it down.
I added lights, shelving, tables and a couple nails to hang
a canvas and a painting shirt....
Voila!!!
I am happy with this budget makeover! 
Estimated cost $120

I am so excited to have this space to create!!
I will be hosting craft parties too...yay!!
