All work...

What a weekend! My feet feel like they could fall off and my hands are all puffy and ache too! We spent all weekend rearranging the house. There are four of us and only 2 bedrooms... At some point a boy and a girl need their own space. That point is now. We painted, moved, dusted, cleaned, recycled, and sorted. There is so much more to be done too. For now we have turned our living room into a bedroom and now each kid has their own space. Not all the furniture has be moved but the main pieces have. The living room (or should I now say the bedroom?) has a fire place that is beautiful but we never use. Since the kids have bigger rooms now ALL THE TOYS ARE OUT OF THE REST OF THE HOUSE!!!! YES!! WHOOO HOOO! I'm a bit excited about this and my big boy is so excited that he insists he will keep his room clean! The house cleaning and sorting was interspersed with trips to the Made In Ojai booth at the four day long Ojai Music Festival. Thirteen artisans chipped in for a booth! I had earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and hair pins and the bracelets seemed to be a hit! So now it is really time to get down to work... and play with some beads.

Last firing I made some of these empty frames! They are perfect for a resin project... I might find some time to play with them... I might also add them to the ol' etsy shop...

Hey Gaea I lived in this sweet old home years ago and we took the dining room and made it into a bedroom and it was great! With determination things can always be worked to a great situation. Kudos to you!
