Making Makes Me Happy

Whilst sewing has been very much on the back burner at my house we are never not making. Today four of us have been working on this Ikea project. Which either makes Ikea stuff sound really tricky to do (it totally isn't) or us sound really pathetic (we're not). These Ikea Ekets were up on my wall until last week. That's the thing with Ikea furniture, it can be so many things. Three of them had glass doors and three didn't. Today I have removed the wall brackets from them and marked where the feet should be attached. My Bradley then attached the feet brackets. Molly screwed the adjustable feet in whilst Lily attached glass doors to the remaining three Ekets. Now Lily and Molly are connecting them all together to make my brand new console to sit behind my couch. 

That's the thing with making. All of us are doing it all the time - even when we don't know it. We make dinner and lunch and breakfast. We make the bed. We clean and make things right in our house. We make jokes and play around.

Around my house I have been changing rooms and rearranging furniture of late. We have lived in this house for almost two years now. I'm busy making it a home where more making can happen. Happy is my goal.
