"A Work in Progress".....and it's moving along nicely....

I had quite a few projects and challenges that I wanted to get done....but I am presently going through some construction issues......with my SBroom, my body and my life.....( I know....sounds like a lot...) ....My daughter just came for her last visit before going off to Afghanistan. Yeah...I am pretty sad and a lot depressed....But I have the kids to keep me busy and fill some of the void.... ....so I am just keeping my family in prayer. For all of you that come across my blog.....Send a prayer for her safe return. My son and his girlfriend were here for the week also ....so they were able to see each other before her departure.....So I was able to enjoy all of my sons and daughters and it was such a wonderful feeling having them all at home together......Quite busy....but a wonderful experience.....And........... then I hurt my back...picking up a few cases of water....Aaahhhh...what was I thinking???????? ....so I have been in pain for the past few days.......but still getting around. "Slowly" ....but still getting around. I was out of commission because my SBroom was closed down for renovations. I finally got my shelves built ....I can now officially say I have a SB/Craftroom.....I only waited forever to get this done...and it finally happened. The "timing" was off....but nevertheless....it happened....So once I get everything back in it's place I will be getting back to SBing......Here are a few pics of the craftroom. I have quite a few things that needs to get done.....but here is my room...A work in progress...but I am loving the way it is coming along......So what do you think?????????

Building the shelves.......






It looks like it was a pretty easy process here.....but believe me....it was quite messy......and a lot of work especially since I had a house full the entire time......and I hurt my back..........but four days later...and not consecutive days .....here is the finished product..........I am liking this....
33 square feet of shelving...(I am loving it......My plan is to get rid of quite a few things.....and eventually the entire room will be dedicated to my SBstuff.....Yeah...A work in progress....Now I have to replace all of my light fixtures.....which I just had changed out a month ago..You know that saying.....One project leads to another.......This project is ongoing...I already know it....... I wanted to get back in the swing of things rather quickly ....so I had my son and his girlfriend help me put a lot of the stuff up ....just to get it up ....so I'll refigure everything later.......

I would love to have that kind of space to scrap!!! Love the shelves and the crown moulding with them on top.

I know its a lot but when its over it will be well worth it.
