And Along Came a Spider

Okay so all the cute trash bags for Halloween are sold out...they always are by the time I get to buying them.  Anyway Noah and I decided we were going to make ourselves a spider.  

All we needed was:
black trash bags (we used 3)
duck tape
and lots of leaves...if you don't have leaves you can come get some of ours!

It's pretty simple and I am sure you guys can figure it out.  I will tell you for the legs we cut a trash bag into three parts, duck taped up the sides of each of those sections and turned it inside out making a sleeve, so you can't see the silver duck tape. Here he is:

Week 5: Laundry Room

I know I still haven't shown you the Office finished but to be honest I am still working on it.  I have a lot done but I am still organizing my preschool files and I don't want to post pics until it is DONE!  Last week though was the Laundry Room, and to tell you the truth it was nice to have an easy, no nonsense room after the Kitchen and the Office!  Our Laundry Room is in our finished basement and it part of a bathroom.  Nothing fancy, just functional and now CLEAN and ORGANIZED!

The orange bucket isn't pretty but I make our laundry detergent and that is big enough to hold it all.  One day I will find something that works and is pretty. 

 We don't have closets on our main floor so our folding chairs are stored in the corner there.

The bins are clothes waiting for our youngest to grow into, I moved those to his closet instead of taking up space in here.

 I moved in a table we had purchased from Ikea years ago when we lived in an apartment.  It has drop sides and drawers so it will be great for setting up for folding and when not in use just put the side down!

Added a few baskets from the Dollar Tree (need one more) and weeded out all the rags and all those little bottles of soaps, lotions, shampoos you get when traveling.
