Well, it is a done deal, I am going to Hawaii for a year, starting next April or May. It is going to be quite the challenge. We have been talking about it practically non stop and working out the details. The best idea coming out of the lengthy separations is that my daughter suggested we all come back to the mainland for Christmas, which is of course what we need to do. That made me very happy. My husband can at least be definitely home for Christmas!
I took a few photo’s of the girl’s cubby room. Click on any photo to enlarge.
The end of my bed. Their room was first up in the left hand cubbie where my clothes are now. The white mesh bags is for my laundry, my laptop is by the window, the red bag is filled with dolly clothes, shoes and food. My black camera bag and the chair are there and so is my knitting bag, tucked into a side cubby under the large cubby. When I return home, the chair will go of this grouping.
This is the head of my bed. When we get home, the first thing to go is all the pillows, except the blue one. I want that window behind the red pillow to be free from being covered up. To the left I have a long cubby for books and a drink, to the right I have a small cubby I keep lotions in, above that is the girl’s cubbyroom. You can see Evie’s head resting on her pillow. Now I can not only see them, but play a bit too.
I need to glue some rubber under the TV to keep it from sliding. Behind the chest is a blackboard for the girls schooling. I like that there is plenty of room (truckwise) for them to play. The chest is filled with toys and games.
There are a couple of pillow pages inside the book cover for her mattress and I fold two pages back to make a pillow. Now it is like a comfy sleeping bag. Found it at a thrift shop and saved me from having to sew something up for her.
Evie’s bed is made from a fold out futon type chair made for American Girl. I put a human baby pillow case on it, which make a perfect sheet that covers the entire chair. Evie is resting on the back of the chair so she can see the TV, but does have a lavender filled pillow that she sleeps on, you can see the corner of it under her.
