Just for Me

Here lately, I've really gotten back into doing one of my favorite things; repurposing stuff.  I really enjoy taking something that looks down right awful and making it look alive again.
Being the parent of a child with CF, I'm always caring for Rachel and often forget about myself.  She comes first, but I've been trying to put me higher in the ranking than I used to. 
 It's nice being "back in the saddle" and serves as a great outlet for life stuff.
So, here are a few pictures of some of my recent small projects.

Before
After - book holder for Rachel's homeschool books
Before
After - yea, I just wasn't in love with the other breadbox
so this is the new/old breadbox/pillbox
Before

After - cute little corner cabinet currently
storing place mats

After completing a few small projects, I've really got the fever to tackle more and maybe larger pieces if I'm lucky enough to get my hands on any.....for the right price...of course! 
Or maybe I could drag out the boxes of photos and scrap booking supplies, or thread the sewing machine and whip up something;......I could go on and on.
So, what do you enjoy doing to "escape" or "relieve stress"?

Trying to Stay Organized

Bread box?


  I have to say that I put a lot of effort into keeping all Rachel's meds organized and out of site.  Actually, I put more effort into keeping them out of site.  I don't want the kitchen looking like a pharmacy or hospital. We see enough of those places!  ha.  The drawer I had her stash in was getting out of hand so I got a bread box.  I put all her extra meds in the bread box and keep all the daily use meds in the drawer.  So far, it working out great....and looks good, too!



Or pill box?  Hmm...
