Gone, baby, GONE!

After many issues and delays, the mobile is finally moved to it's new home where it will be appreciated and completely overhauled.
That little robo-cat is pretty cool.

We were sad that we had to cut down a large flowering plum tree from in front of the shop to get the mobile out.
Making sure it doesn't bottom out at the end of the driveway. They did break off some plumbing pipes..
And now we will bring in some gravel and have ample parking for the house warming party!

Craftroom storage - BEFORE

I let Tom guilt me out of having cabinets made for my craftroom when they were making the rest of them in the house. Because of that, I have boxes (and boxes... And boxes....) of craft stuff sitting on the floor.

While I still want cabinets made for certain items, Tom has redeemed himself by getting me FIVE lateral file cabinets and TWO blueprint drawer units.
Amanda and I got these suckers upstairs all by ourselves. ��

Tom will build me a platform to set these up on:

This will go a long way to getting my stuff organized. It's been a long time, but I remember some good times with my old friend, Organization. ��

Over the front door:
I love this. <3

By the front door:

Craftroom bath

We finally installed the toilet and vanity in the craftroom. I love how it turned out! 
Now to decorate... :-)

Oh sunshine...

How I love thee.

Toilet paper dispenser

We moved into the house in December and after the big push to get occupancy and the holidays, I think we just took a collective breath and haven't done much on the house. 

So the family was out today and I had the house to myself (finally!)... I started doing laundry and cleaning but there was a hammer in my bathroom (don't ask) and so this happened:

And then this:

Using the moulding scraps, router, sliding miter & table saws, I made this:

Don't look too closely or you will have confirmation that I am NOT a carpenter. But it is functional and doesn't look too bad from a distance. :)
