Tearing Down the Craft Room
Rearrange the house, they said.
There's nothing much to do during quarantine so let's have home projects, they said.
Well, that's exactly what I am doing and it didn't go as planned as much as I hoped!
The main goal was to get everything done this weekend. Rearrange and make a nice, decent, organized room that's inspiring and calm. Well, right now the whole place is a mess! While organizing, I hit several roadblocks - including a rug that's had been eaten by the my beloved fuzzy guinea piigs. Yes, I call them piigs. LOL. Well, when I first started, the piigs came in a small cage. I was broke and I ended up buying a large play pen. I made a custom flooring and unfortunately, they were able to get to the rug... and welp, they ate it.
The Struggle to Get Started
So it begins - set things in place and gets started!
Step 1: Get things organized. Well - the struggle is real. See, the Craft Corner aka Craft Dump is an utter mess right now. I was trying to figure out how to film craft videos. There are lots of ways to do it, for the most part I have the tools from tripods to cameras, lighting, and whatever else... except the tripod arm, but the problem is that the whole place is a mess.
This is a glimpse of that lovely mess. I don't have a very big area and the little spot that I have is just... full. So very, very full. It's a mess!!
I'm happily doing what I do, but nope I am definitely not happy with how messy that is! >.<
Now, time to get the motivation to actually clean up and maybe get rid of some hoard that I no longer need. This is gonna be a tough process. I might need to consider the time I'm going to spend debating with myself. Okay, so I know it doesn't really look that bad but I don't have much space to store some items anymore, or to spread the crafts around. I really am hoping I could buy the house some day, but not really holding on to that thought for now.
Anyways, I started brainstorming figuring out what to do next. It's just a fancy way of saying that I started overthinking trying to figure out how get things to work out and not be lazy ending up binge watching Tiger King or Narcos. Planning helps a lot, so I have to jot that down my handy-dandy planner.
Moral support helps too! Look at my crew ^.^
Today I start. Now let's see how this goes!
Alrightie! As usual, so much has happened in the past couple of weeks - both personally and around the world! All of these is quite overwhelming, but there is a bright side to everything going on I'm sure.
I've recently had some life changes, which I will update soon - but this has given me more inspiration and more time for myself. That being said, I'm actually able to catch up in doing my crafts and updating my sites. I'm looking forward to actually reopening my shop and hopefully work on more items, photos, and do more things! I'm trying really hard not to binge watch and waste my time but I will be posting more and more to catch up!
Anyways... here's a selfie
Getting 'Em Duckies
Got the 12 gauges read a few days ago, went to bed early, made sure everything is set for the next day and early morning before the sun rises, we went out to position ourselves to get some ducks.
It's duck season!
There's so much beautiful scenery at this time of day. For a fact, I know we were gonna be out there all day anyways. It's a pretty new experience for me. Hunting is part of the Midwest culture. It stocks up the fridge and I'm not gonna lie, I cook a lot and this saves us a big chunk. Nothing is really more organic than this.
And of course, some time to roam around. Where we are situated, there is a sand bank in the middle of the lake so we were able to walk in our waders! Gotta meet we had lots of fun. And some good photos too!
Cruising the Fox River
Ah just my luck!
WARNING: One cuss word or two might offend you ?
Ah the magical fuckery of me jinxing this thing I've planned for so long!
My husband's birthday was last May. I've always wanted to book this Fox River cruise so as early as March, I booked ours for his birthday last May! Everything has been planned perfectly. I always have some surprise of some sort and this was one of those plans. I was gonna bring his cake to the cruise have it served for supper.
Cruise crew called me a week before - it was early spring and good ol Wisconsin is raining here and there. They were really good tho and we agreed to see how the weather goes. Unfortunately... It got cancelled and we had a raincheck.
Weather: 1 | TeamFrank: 0
I've always loved blogging - until life got too busy. Now let me try to keep this going :)
