Well, at least for profit... 

I am trying to finish up the last few projects for my booth and then I think I will close it.  It seems that it has taken over my life and I KNOW that it has taken over my house!!  I'm tired of stuff being all over my porch, my back deck, my livingroom, and so on and so on.  I don't have a garage and my basement floods (plus, getting large items down and back up again is difficult).  I have SO many projects that I want to do in my house and I just can't seem to find the time to do any of them!

I hope to be able to close by Spring or early Summer.  The trick is, I have to get out of the mind set of looking at something and saying, "Oh I can make THAT and I'll bet it would really sell!"  It will be hard, but it IS necessary!  I've also tried to not look at as many trash to treasure type blogs.  I'm trying to focus more on just decorating blogs. 

In the meantime, here are some of the things that I've finished for the booth.

I've actually sold the chalkboard and the message center.  Right now I working on 2 more message centers.  I also have a coffee table and a trunk to finish up with.  And THEN, I can start concentrating on the "home projects."

I want to lengthen the drapes in the livingroom, make new drapes for the diningroom, and make a valance for my room.  I also want to build some bookcases in the study and cover a mattress for a daybed.  And that's just for starters!  Hopefully, I'll get started on some of these soon.

I'll keep ya posted!
