That's Better!

So, I got my temporary scrap space all cleaned up.  I don't know how long I'll be up here in the loft, so I'm trying to avoid putting up a bunch of shelves and things and creating holes in the wall.  I hung my Making Memories Embellishment Center, but I NEED that, and there were some hooks left by the previous owners I put my Cricut mats on.

I won't get to paint and decorate and make it pretty.  When I leave the space it will be a playroom for my kids and I haven't decided on the theme yet, so I'm leaving the current decor for now, even though it isn't my style at all.

It feels good to be getting settled in, even if this isn't my long term space.  I will be creating a dream of a room in our new basement, but of course finishing it will take time.  Right now we need to find out what the specific requirements are for submitting for a permit.  We've got to map out all the electrical components and all that stuff.  Ugh.  I like making things pretty, not discussing wiring and drywall.  Bleh!  *LOL*
