I’m here, I’m here!! I’ve completely fallen off the blog wagon for a couple of weeks. Just had way too much going on. Weekend sports, Izzy’s birthday party, my mom came in for a visit, and tackling a few belated projects. I get my love of DIY from my mom, so she is always game for projects when she visits.
Changes are a brewing in Izzy’s room. The kid clutter is real. My mom helped her with a small purge (basically empty gum wrappers and scrap paper), but there is still so much left over that she has an attachment too. I got sick and tired of seeing knick knacks, shopkins, and emoji toys covering every square inch of the top of her dresser. This clean dresser top lasted all of one day. We needed shelving and more storage options.
I took down the book ledges. While I love having books on display like this, it was no longer practical. As she got older her books changed from large picture books to smaller chapter books. Ledges aren’t ideal for that.
