Dream Craft House















Dream Craft House

Wow… I know I’ve been away too long. I’m getting back on the blogging train and hope to write about a dream come true.

I feel so blessed and fortunate to get to have a craft house built in our backyard. It’s something I’ve dreamed of for many, many years. I really never thought we’d be building a little house (more like a room) so I’m just on cloud nine right now. I do thank God everyday for the many blessings that are in my life.

So… check out the pix and you’ll see my backyard before the digging started. Yep… we have a pretty small back yard with a steep hill at the back of it. Hey, I’ll take it where I can get it! Just after three days we’ve got the foundation and sub-floor (if that’s what it’s called). We’ve had so much rain for the past month, I don’t want another drought, but I do hope the guys can have more dry days so they can work.

I’ll do my best to keep a record of how things are coming along including the move-in. Phew… that will be a job. I’ve got a room that’s busting at the seams with stuff, so I’ve got to do some major cleaning out and see if I can part with anything.

I jumped the gun and bought two desks, a work table, and a wide file cabinet from the Habitat for Humanity ReStore at wonderful prices, but I bought them three weeks ago. Geeze… they’re under my carport just waiting for their new home. One desk is for my granddaughter and one for me. She and I painted the top of the work table white.

My granddaughter has been busy drawing floor plans where she thinks everything should go. She’s a hoot and having a great time watching the progress. She’s in the photos and loves posing for the camera.

I hope you’ll enjoy going along on the journey of a dream-come-true in my life. If you’ve got any ideas about organization please send them my way. I’m just so confused about what I want… shelves or cabinets or carts… oh my! I really don’t know what I should do.
If you’ve read this far you’re just the best… and I truly appreciate it.

Now stay tuned for some pix of my recent stamping adventures!

Debbie - Can't wait to see where your journey takes you. I'm so excited for you! As far as organization, and shelves, cabinets, or carts ... If I had a chance to pick out anything, I'd pick out shelves and/or cabinets with some sort of clear/glass/acrylic doors/fronts. That way you can see what you have. I have BUNCHES of carts and can't see what's in them. I have them labeled, but it's just not the same as being able to see what's in there without opening and pawing through stuff. I have some shelves in front of my workspace. They're just those tracks with brackets that you can put the shelf on. I have the stuff I most use right in front of me - in plain sight - and it's great. Be shure to keep us updated on the dream craft house. Lisa - Sunday International Design Team member

Hi Debbie:
Shannon told me about your dream house and I must say that I am very happy for you. I cannot wait to see it when I come down later this year. I will check back on the progress and I hope the rain holds off for a while. Good luck
