Some BEFORE & AFTER shots of the house:
It wasn't until the plush carpeting went into the downstairs living areas that the construction really halted. At that point, it was well into winter and too cold to work outside and too nice to bring tools etc inside.
At this point I had a lady who is amazing at organizing, (HI TRISH!) come in and help me for a few days to get the main onslaught of overwhelming trimmed to a more workable atmosphere.
It still needed fine tuning, and this is where the little ones, I call, "miracle workers", came in.
My neighbour's two little girls are really cute and are two super little helpers.
Justyce, the older one, can enter a cluttered room and have it organized within a very short time frame. She is absolutely wonderful! And she's only 7. She just turned 7 two days ago.
And lil miss Penelope, as John calls her, as it's her real middle name, is Justyce's sister.
Alexis, turned 5 last month.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY ALEXIS!!!
So, now my two little miracle workers are revealed. They both love to craft and draw, and spend time with us drawing pictures to put on our fridge, and making beaded items too.
They like my bead room and find sorting little tiny beads etc, a treat. They are rewarded with beads and craft things to take home. It's a great sharing experience.
THANKS JUSTYCE & ALEXIS!
Terrific little girls! And budding crafters!
