And So It Begins. . .

My Summer List. . . That needs to be completed by July 1st.

1st- Clean and organize the train wreck of a craft room.

2nd- Refinish Claire's dresser, that we have had since she was a baby and have had on the list to do since then too-- We will see if it gets done this summer.

3rd- Refinish "the desk." We bought oops paint last night for 5 bucks to paint it. my goal is to see how little I can spend refinishing it. It looks as though I will be using leftover fabric from a commissioned piece I did a few months ago, for the seat.

4th- piece and sew my quilt. I bought this for me for Christmas, with the intention to do it this summer. I really want it done before July.

5. Paint a wall size map of United States Westward Expansion.

6. Sew curtains for my classroom

7. Go through and put together at least my first six weeks lesson plans.

8. Can a HUGE burlap sack full of pinto beans-- I have a feeling this is going to take DAYS!!!

and because I have been working, my house has totally been neglected, so think of all the cleaning I have to do too.

I love being over scheduled :D Now on to that craft room. I can't do anything else until its done.

GOOD LUCK! I *wish* I could be that productive right now.....But if I could I probably wouldn't. Isn't that how it is?

So, this week isn't the right time to send you pictures of the pieces at MY house we talked about, huh? LOL! I'll wait and send the pictures at the end of July ;)
