I thought I'd share what I've been doing. No not having a good time scrapping and creating, but cleaning up a big mess. We woke up Thursday morning to a flooded basement! Our sump pump stopped working and we've been cleaning up for the last four days.
You want to know the worst part of it? My scrapping room is down there!!!!! I was very, very lucky. I don't think any of my treasures were ruined! Thank God!!
This was a real wake-up call for us. We've been buying shelves and organizing everything. Our basement was finished but we just had the cement blocks painted. So my husband had this bright idea to build walls inside the cement blocks and drywall the basement. This way it will look more homey and we can insulate. I'm sure it's going to take some time, since we are doing it all ourselves. My husband turns 58 Tues. and I'm 51 and we don't get as much done as we used to. We built the house 11 years ago and had all sorts of ambition. Not any more! Ha!!
So needless to say I won't be crafting for quite some time. I'm so bummed, but in the long run my space will be much nicer. I plan on taking a little more of the basement when everything is put back together. I'll make sure and post pictures of my studio when it's finished.
Have a great day everyone. Shari
