Do your metacarpal phalanges hang low? Do they wobble to a fro? Are both your central and lateral maxillary incisors implants? Are you tired of me talking like this? I'm sorry, I can't help it.

Did you know that Emily Deschanel (Bones), is Zooey Deschanel's sister?
I'm basically a forensic anthropologist after all the Bones I've been watching. For those unaware, it's a TV show that's been on for a really long time. My mom got all the seasons on DVD for Christmas. We all made fun of her for watching them then one day many weeks ago, I was downstairs working on a project and decided to finish my movie. Well Bones was in the DVD player and I was too distracted to really notice. Well now here we are, 5 seasons later....Cut me a break though because I've been WORKING while I watch. On projects, organizing, purging, painting, building furniture etc....
Some episodes are pretty boring and some are just too over the top. There are some though that are really interesting.

Anyways I decided about 1.5 weeks ago that I was going to purge the downstairs craft room, which has provided a wonderful Bones marathon alibi. Of course when I start something it can't JUST be what I originally intended. I've literally gotten rid of 2 tables, a bookcase, emptied out/organized 20+ cube shelves, and built some new shelf-desk units. My mom jumped on board too so what started off being a little purging turned in to a, prime and paint, shove everything to one side of the room. Go through each drawer item by item extravaganza. I actually LOVE doing this when I'm in the right mood for it. Bones has helped motivate me.

Tonight I worked on organizing a box of poorly labeled, mismatched photos while I watched Dr. Temperance Brennan (Bones) and FBI Special Agent Ceely Booth, solve a couple murders and try to pretend like they don't like each other.

Wellllll, I'll show you a little picture of my in-progress craft room/area. I wish I would have taken a before picture, but trust me, you wouldn't want to see it. Ridiculous.

 Here is a mid-way picture. This wall used to have a bookcase, a table, a desk, and a huge stack of luggage, blankets, and other random things that didn't have a 'real' home. Well I found them real homes and got them out. Please notice the wonderful red wall. My mom wanted to be 'urban' or something so she painted 2 walls red and yellow. Goes perfect with the ugly maroon carpet!
 A broader view. All that mess to the left is just shoved to the side while we work on other things. See those white shelves? Those were overflowing with junk, 75% off what was in that got donated/thrown out (there is another one on the other side that I'm including in that 75%)

This is where I'm at now. This is the shelf/desk unit I bought from Ikea this weekend and the chair I bought from there also. It's hard to tell but the wall is now a medium/lightish shade of grey (just used what we had mixed with white paint).
Obviously there is still a long ways to go, but the other shelf/desk is set up. Just got to go through all the other stuff and get everything into it's new home!

And just because I'm super confident in my style and person, I leave you with this photo of myself back in the day. If you're wondering, yep those shoes were scratch n' sniff, yep, I had a plastic 101 dalmatians backpack, my eyes/glasses were the size of pie plates, my hair disappeared in the sun, and I was trying my hardest to channel my inner 'Matilda'.

 You're welcome.
