About five years ago, my now teenage daughter was rendered wheelchair bound by a devastating and degenerative disease called Rasmussen's Encelphalitis. When she was no longer able to climb the stairs, we had to move her room from upstairs to downstairs. After having a hemispherectomy (where they remove/disconnect half the brain) over 3 years ago, she has slowly gained back her mobility and is now able to walk and climb stairs again! Needless to say, I am extremely proud of her...but I am also super excited to have my downstairs office back. I have been carting my soap gear up and downstairs as well as taking over my dining room with labeling mess. It will be so nice to have everything accessible again and in one room! Lucky for me Em finds it a bit creepy downstairs by herself at night. ;)
I wish my craft room would end up looking like this one (cue angels singing).
A girl can dream! Anyway, I will just have to be content with my most recent purchase, these photo boxes from IKEA, which I will of course be using to store soap. They are really reasonably priced, all the same sized, and since I like storing my soap in breathable cardboard boxes, made from the perfect material. I also like the fact that they have little removable tag labels on the front so I don't have to write all over the box.
