I am glad you chose to visit! My blog is a compilation of the many hats I find myself wearing. On any given day I may be an encourager, an instructor, or just a lady who is venting. You, dear reader, will probably identify with my triumphs and my tribulations! These snapshots fit into my Life Scrapbook I have named A. McInnis Artworks. I hope you will find something worth your while.

Two Tuesday Transformations!

I've got tons of projects going on today...and it's the last day of Christmas vacation. I was so inspired by Dittle Dattle's organizational skills that I began a thorough purging at my own house...hmmm, that may have been a mistake! I've only just finished a segment of the laundry room, and I need to purge 3 more closets. I am showing you just a snippet of the laundry room purge...it was horrible and I can't believe I am actually posting this! My husband is appalled. I know, I know, respectable people don't live like this...but things just suddenly spiraled out of control!

Above: The Before: My Mini-Storage Area for much used paints and Cricut supplies.

Above: The After: Just a little reorganizing and re-purposing. Ahhhh, better! (NOT perfect, but better!)

Now for a quick look at a birthday project for one of my friends. (I think Miss Mustard Seed came up with this, I hope I am giving correct credits, I need to start writing all this stuff down!) First I purchased two glass candlesticks at $ Tree and 2 small glass vases. Superglued them together...thus, the glued together fingers from my FB post last night. (Another story for another time.) This morning, I covered the small white pillar candles with vintage music papers, tied on burlap & twine bows, made two prim tags and stuffed in some shredded music for filler and there you have two cute candleholders that can be used in several ways!

I hope you have a creative Tuesday and accomplish all the goals you have set for yourself...if you don't get everything done, remember that there's always tomorrow and you can use little snippets of time in which to accomplish segments of long-range goals! Don't be discouraged...a lifetime journey begins with one small step!

Thanks for the shout out! Your shelves look fantastic!! I had to look back at the before photo TWICE to make sure it was that shelving. Keep up the great work :D

Carrie, I wanted another shelving unit, but that idea was nixed by "you know who"...so I just did the best I could with what I had! I am normally organized, but during Christmas that shelf just got away from me... :o
