Reading and Advice

Scrapbooking went well. I actually managed to get a couple of pages done which was good.

Ny big plan for the rest of the day? Well, actually, I think I am going to go sit out on the deck and read! How fun! It is so nice outside and just the perfect day to be lazy. I have about a few days worth of housework to catch up on but hey you know, it can wait...again.

I might straighten my desk out a little but that's about it.

Oh yeah, that reminds me. I have been thinking that I would like to make my office more of an "office" (as in get the kids arts and crafts crap out of here and maybe set up a dedicated scrapping area or something). My dilemna: Where the heck should I set up there stuff? I am nervous about bringing it upstairs (although there is room on the landing to set up a table and some crates or whatever) but I am afraid that they will draw on things that shouldn't be drawn on (like you know, their brand new bedsets). If you are about to tell me that my kids are too old and beyond the coloring on the walls stage, you don't know my kids, or at least not Emily. So yeah, I am debating. I was thinking that I could set the table up and keep the arts and crafts supplies under lock and key somehow and that would mean they would have to ask to use them and then I would know to keep my eye out but I am just not sure.

Anyone who has been to my house and seen the layout...any thoughts?

Hmmm...I'm not good at arranging things. My house is still an unformed stuff-collection area. :) I totally see what you're talking about with not wanting the stuff out where it's easy to destroy with, though.
