At the last minute she decided to add the scarf! LOL
Yes, that's wacky alright! :-)
I also debated showing Kathleen's before and after pictures of her room......but I had requests.... so....if it helps inspire someone else.....I guess I'll share! LOL
Gasp....yes that pile came out of her room!
Everything came out of her room that was easily movable. Including the closet and under the bed...
To say my children are blessed is an understatement. They are spoiled by relatives and friends. I am super proud Kathleen let over 1/2 of this go to donation.
We took every single book off her bookcase and went through which ones we could donate.
This room cleaning process took 2 whole days....my girls have more than I did my entire childhood growing up! Some is also my husband;s theory of giving them what he never had as a child.
After working hard we finally discovered she has a floor in her room! LOL Who knew?
These are dressers Jerry made when Hayley was born and have since been passed down to Kathleen!
That is an old picture she found of us and insisted she could have it to keep in her room. :-)
Had to make room for the pillow pets....all gifts.
American girls got the royal treatment also! They were pretty worn out. ;-)
Of course there were several stuffed animals she just couldn't bear to part with. :-) But overall I think it was pretty successful and she is happier having it organized too. Now how long it will last.....????
I was excited to receive my project life kit. I received it the week we lost my brother in law.
I had seen this around on several blogs and it's a great kit. http://www.beckyhiggins.com/ If you get a chance check it out. I receive no compensation for this. I just enjoy the product.
I layed everything out the other night.
Owen kept watch out the window....
Then I began the journey of documenting our lives this year starting in January. (will share pics soon of progress). I came to April 1,2011 the day I lost my brother in law and cried.... just realizing how much keepsakes, pictures and memories mean to me. Thankful for the pictures I did have of him through his life.
Still missing him....still trying to understand....
So many of us missing him.....
Garry (Jerry's twin), Patrick and Kayla at her wedding last year.
Pictures are truly worth a thousand words..... If I were given a chance to save something materialistic in a fire it would be my pictures no doubt.
What projects are you working on this month? Are you taking pictures and documenting the moments? I guarantee you'll be glad you did. Life moves fast, but pictures capture memories for a lifetime....
Treasure those moments....hold on to them.....love those dear to you and let them know every day.
Hope you all have a wonderful evening! Thanks for visiting with me. :-) Many many blessings to you all!
