These two words seem to be the theme of my life lately. At work, our district is doing some heavy duty consolidating to save money. My school has been consolidated with another, my room has moved and I've been busy there reorganizing.
My home life is much of the same. We have been getting the hardwoods refinished upstairs and down stairs so we have had to move things out on each floor and then put them back in place once the floors are done. While doing all this we have repainted, I've reorganized and tossed out a bunch of stuff. My closet for one has never looked better and I'm so happy that this has forced us to consolidate. Our second floor is almost complete.....one more room to paint and one more closet (my husbands) to organize.....Ugh, the downstairs will be happening at the end of July and I'm kinda scared about that one! Kitchen appliances, living room furniture, dining room.......all have to be moved out! Once again we will be sleeping on the porch!
My art rooms at home....yes, I have two....one is for painting and such and the other is my glass studio, are being organized and consolidated too. My art room in our basement has been pretty much a nightmare since the beginning. There wasn't proper storage for things so they piled up. I now have a nice storage unit purchased at Michaels that holds everything nice and neat. LOVE IT! Now canvases are not easily hidden but thats okay with me.
So. I'm very happy with organizing and consolidating although its been hard work. I feel like we've done so much but being that we are still in process it still looks like a mess. Things will get better I know. Things are finding their own homes and I'm passing on lots of goodies to either friends or the garbage man. By summers end my house and new art room at school should look awesome!
