I read thru my resolutions that I blogged about on MySpace  last year.  I still need to work on the same resolutions!

But I do like New Years and New Beginnings. 

My girls have been begging for their own rooms.  We live in a 3 bedroom house with 3 kids, so had to brainstorm to come up with “a way”.  I know alot of larger families grew up in smaller houses, but I finally got my own room when I was about 13 and I loved it.  It was my refuge,  so I “get” how much it means to want your own space.  I still like having my own space.   When we moved to TN and was house shopping in 1993,  one thing I wanted was a room for my sewing/quilting “studio”.   The house we bought has pretty large bonus room, and I have it crammed full of “stuff”. 

We’ve thought about “adding on” to the house, but time, energy and budget never seem to be aligned.  The best solution we can come up with for now is for me to “share” the bonus room with my 10 year old daughter, Emilee.   So, I’ve spent the day trying to move stuff around to find a place for her bed, and a place for some of her “stuff” and clothes.   Emilee is in KY until Sunday, she stayed with my mom when we visted last weekend.  So she’s hoping to come home to a new “space”.  Emilee likes to sew, craft and all of that, so I think she will be happy having the craft room be part of her space.   I work from home from this space as well, so that’s something I’m going to have to figure out.  But with wireless connections I can be pretty mobile.  

Here’s the “before” of Emilee’s Corner, I’ll post updates as this progresses.
