Another week. Another, busy, busy week. I am so glad that our summer was soooooo relaxing, because I feel like we haven't stopped since school started! Same with you? Anyhow...
I have been working on some really fantastic projects that I cannot wait to show you, but none of them are finished yet. Big surprise! It's not that I have project ADD, it's just that some projects take several steps to complete/a larger block of time than the usually 20 minutes I can spare! As a result, I typically have several projects in the works, and I just plug away at them as time permits.
Now, that would be just fine if I didn't have so many fantastic readers out there that are wanting to see what I do next. Last month, HBK had over 25,000 visitors, averaging 600 unique visitors each day! That's crazy! (And I know to some huge bloggers those numbers are laughable and small, but to a stay-at-home mommy looking for a creative outlet, those numbers are astonishing!) So, to keep the interest of my dear readers, here is a simple and very practical project. Maybe it's more of a tip than a project. Whatever you call it, here it is!
A few months ago, my husband and I got a new bed. This bed is ridiculously heavy! As we were starting to carry it up the stairs, I totally punted and asked my husband to call a friend to help, because there was no way I was going to be able to make it to the top of the stairs with the beast mattress. So a friend came to the rescue, the mattress made it to our room, and there it has been, with no bed skirt for three months, because it is so ridculously heavy that I couldn't put one on! Not a pretty sight!
Awhile back, my aunt was visiting and said, "You know what to do about the bed skirt, right?" And I was like, "Clearly I don't!" She told me to just cut out the center of the bed skirt, and then I would be able to tuck it in without taking the mattress off. Brilliant! Thanks, Aunt Dedee!
I laid the bed skirt on top of my bed, and cut out the center of the skirt. I was very careful not to cut my comforter!
After I cut out the center, I laid the bed skirt on the floor, and just went around the bed, tucking the skirt under the mattress.
And here it is now!
Soooooo much better, and this literally took less than 10 minutes! Perfect for my schedule today!
Enjoy the Son!
