I'm Stepping Into the Closet and



closing the door.Why? My muse is gone or rather, is occupied. Which leaves me with very little to say lately, and what is left is barely coherent. I've been neither musing nor amusing. My children, who have often been called by the wrong name as of late, will attest to that. Their Musing Mom's brain is getting fried. So I bid you "das vydanya" for the next week while I follow my muse in completing the gargantuan projects on my plate.

In the meantime I leave you some photos and a promise. This is a cabinet my husband redesigned to fit my daughter's American Girl doll and accessories:

He did three of them in one weekend. Isn't he awesome (I can tell you his daughters certainly think so)? See that floral thing hanging inside the door?

I made that. It's a shoe organizer. I did two and it took more than just in a weekend. I'm still working on the third. But when I return I plan to post instructions on how to make one. That's my promise. If you want to know how my husband did the cabinet (and it cost a total of about $35 to do it), let me know.

The door is closing. Feel free to knock. I may answer. If nothing else, I'll "see" you next week!

6 musings:

Every brain needs a chance to unfry (is that a word?). Blessings on your rest...

Still in the closet? Must be an interesting place... or, did you just get lost behind the boots and coats?

Ok, totally not about being in the closet. I just came across an article about a dying fish. It was a goldfish so I don't know if this will work for Beta fish. The goldfish was swimming upside down, so the mom googles that and come up with many entries. One of them said peas can cure sick fish. She took boiled peas and dropped the pulp in the bowl and the next day the fish was back to normal. Hopefully your fish doesn't get sick again, but if it does this is worth a shot!

LL-thanks for checking in. My closet is actually quite interesting. There are games in there- Scrabble even. That alone could consume hours. And then there are the scrapbooks, and magazines...If only those were the things consuming my past week...But I'm stepping back out now. The fresh air sure feels good.

For Now-I don't like cleaning the fish bowl normally, but after boiled pea pulp? Don't be offended if I don't try that one on our next fish (whenever we manage to get one).
