Ladybugs & Pugs

We will get to the ladybugs in a minute, first off I finally got some time to do a little cleaning in my scrap-room this morning....Mugsy and I both share the same opinion on cleaning....blech!
















Pixie is very concerned that I might throw something of hers away!
















I had to do something about all of the stuff that was piling up on the floor, so I moved all by books off my Ikea Expedit shelving...
















so I would have more room for supplies and such, Bob added a couple of robots to my collection for Christmas so they needed a place of honor :)
















O.k., here is where the ladybug comes in, we can only stay focused on cleaning for so long so when I found a ladybug residing on a pile of fabric I had to let the pugs see...
























Still not wanting to return to cleaning, Pixie is forced to try on funny hats























O.k., so several hours later I finally have a clean(ish) scrap room....I can see the floor, I threw away 3 big bags of stuff, my work surfaces are clean and I *think* I know where everything is. Oh, just one more thing to share, my friend Megan bought me the Martha Stewart mushroom ornaments I had been lusting over for Christmas and not wanting to put them away they now hang off the curtain rod in my room...the make me ever so happy!























Ack!! I almost forgot, the new challenge is up at Category Stories and it's a fun one as it is all about toys! Here is my take on the challenge..

I share your Mugsy's opinion on cleaning -- especially if it involves a robotic vacuum.
