I'm Baaaaackkkk......

Hello everyone!

Well, it appears that it's been almost a YEAR since I posted something new. I really have no excuse why it's been that long, except that I've been enjoying family, friends, vacations and being home. Anyhoo, I haven't been a Sponge Bob lazy pants this whole time. I have been semi-productive during my blog sabbatical which leads me to my latest project. I have been begging my hubby to re-do my laundry room since uh...FOREVER but in his defense he does travel A LOT. When my washer finally gave out (silent screams of joy from within) I saw this as my opportunity to suggest that we might as well spruce up the ol' room while we wait for the new appliances to arrive. He went for it and so I immediately jumped in the car and drove wildly (but animals were hurt at the time) to Lowes to begin picking out flooring, paint, lighting, etc.

Much to my dismay, I had taken a picture of the old room so that you could fully appreciate the hideousness of it all but alas, my hubby deleted it before I could download it. Picture in your mind, if you will...cracked, stained linoleum, orange walls, poor lighting, mismatched appliances.

Now, behold! (Angels singing from the heavens) My new bright, light clean, wonderful laundry room.....

What??! Wait!!! Stop the singing angels! There is one thing that CLEARLY needs to be addressed before the celebration can go on. Do you see it? Yes, there it is that ugly canvas laundry sorter. So, being the impatient Scorpio that I am, I raced out to Walmart (yes, I am a brave girly) grabbed some fabric and some of that Stitch Witchery stuff everyone is talking about.

In ten minutes, I had a wonderful solution that is cheery and completes my vision. Commence singing angels.....

I love my laundery room......... I'd sleep in there if there was room.
