Rainy Day Progress

Bet you thought I forgot about my 40 bags in 40 Days Challenge! Well, I didn't. So there. Actually, it was a rainy and cool weekend here, so in between watching lacrosse games (yep, they play in the rain), I started working on this:
Yep, that's my oldest son's messy closet and room. You couldn't actually open or close the door all of the way. He's coming home in less than two months so I thought I would get things organized so he can clutter it all again. I mostly organized his stuff, but I did get a bag of donations, a bag of recycling and a bag of trash out of the whole experience. Here's what it looks like now:
I also spent a little time in my basement gathering some bags. So, now I'm up to 23 bags in 34 days...I need to get moving!
I'm going to work on getting a little spring into my home. Have some little projects up my sleeve. What will I do with these, you ask?

Wow what a difference! I would love to see the murals I am assuming you painted on his walls. And i am thinking you are going to paint or mod podge those cute little ducks.

I have found that xerox copies work best, and I'd you noticed on the post where I was rubbing the paper off the takes several times to get it clean...wet,rub,dry was the motto got a day or two! I do lots of Pinterest projects, and am excited to try citrasolv ...I am actually in the studio today with it! Wish me luck!

You have really stuck with this organizing thing--good for you! Each little project makes you feel better I'm sure.
