Other than the visiting cat, we also have our guinea pig and bunny living here! Yup! Three animals in our tiny apartment. I think we're about to grow out of the apartment. Not only because of all the inhabitants but also because my kids are...well....kids. They need to move around and it's not easy when we have to be considerate of downstairs neighbors. I hate that I have to stop them in their play. In their development. I so wish I could find another place for us to live our life. Somewhere, where we can jump around as much as we want. Maybe even go outside. I'm not a garden person, so any tiny piece of dirt would do. And not having up- or downstairs neighbors. I know it's a lot to ask but I hope something will show up. One of these days...anyway...I'm thrilled to finally have my type case back on the wall. It used to hang in the dining room of our wonderful old house. Now it's hanging in our hall way....
So we didn't quite go for the radical change. The plan was to move all the kids things into our living room and make my daughter's room into our bedroom (as we all sleep together anyway) and my son's room would be my craft room, so the living room would end up as the playroom.
You see; my kids don't use their rooms a whole lot and we (I!) could really use the extra space but...
I had second thoughts.
Instead I've finally had the last lightning installed so the kids (read: My son) can move around and flick on lamps everywhere.
I also decorated the walls here and there and I'm super thrilled with my kitchen dining area above.

Our kitchen nook has been turned into my atelier for the summer and the furniture has moved to our balcony. There was no room for painting in the living room and the light is real good in the kitchen. I seriously need a real easel though. One of those huge sturdy ones, because I want to experiment with larger canvases and the walls are crap for drilling holes in! These are all works-in-progress and as you might notice: I like color.
