Doing the Pee Pee Dance

Doing the Pee Pee Dance

This blog isn’t called Holly’s Hobbies by accident. I have a lot of hobbies – some of which become business. Perhaps there is a name for my condition but I am interested in almost everything if it involves making something. If my husband only knew the number of hobbies I have considered and and let go, he would be eternally grateful.

Because he is the greatest husband in the world, he made me a little soap room last year. Because he was shooting to outdo himself, he is now making me an even bigger, better soap room that will also be an all-purpose hobby room.

It was going to be done today but some schedules didn’t align…now I will have to wait til tomorrow but in the meantime I am daydreaming with the aid of photoshop.

I’m so excited I’m doing the pee pee dance – but in a soap room kind of way.soap

The East side of the room will be the soap, or wet, side. it will have a sink and….drumroll please…a dish washer! Soap making is messy and it involves about a half hour of dish washing for each batch. Now I’ll be able to spend more time on creating and less time on cleanup.

The other side of the room will be for the “dry” hobbies like sewing and scrapbooking. It will also be extremely useful for doing the packaging and labeling for all the bath and body products.

Through this all, I have to say my husband has been a paragon of patience, indulgence and selflessness. He has used four or five of his days off work plus weekends to help with this project. He has given up evenings to drive into Salt Lake to pick up cabinets and a dishwasher I found with online classifieds. He has helped me paint said cabinets. He has put up with my congenital condition that makes it painful for me to get rid of junk – all so we could clean out the space in our basement to make this room possible.  He has taken three loads of junk to the dump, three or four loads to DI (like Good Will for you out of staters) and a load of old documents to Shred-It. He cashed in his precious debit rewards points to get Home Depot cards to help fund this project.

I owe him big time. He knows it.

As you can imagine, he’s just as excited to start collecting as I am to start moving in to the new room.

    I can’t wait to see pictures of it FINISHED!!! I really like the color you painted the walls (and that’s surprising to me since I don’t usually like yellow). It’s going to be wonderful for you!!!

      Funny story on the color….I have been trying (and failing) to limit the budget on this project as much as possible. Toby’s uncle said “I have some paint you can have if you want…” and before he could even show it to us we said “SOLD!” It’s pure luck that the color is decent because we’d have used whatever he had to avoid adding another $50 or $100 to the budget.

    Holy Crap, you’re husband is awesome! When we finally get a house, I believe I will be the one giving in to my husband’s garage desires and making him do the pee pee dance.
