Well we had quite the excitement this weekend. Our almost 3 year old Easton was in the family room with our almost 9 year old watching Cartoons. I was in my Scrapbook Room and called my husband to come take a look at my "remodel" when the lights flickered (we didnt' think anything about it since it was storming outside) until we heard Easton crying.
My husband rushed to the next room where he was. Our older son was saying that the speaker fell on his hand. Well that much screaming coming from a 6" speaker was highly doubtful as to what caused our little guy to be hurt. Upon further observation, we noticed that the TV and stereo had also gone out. We looked over to the area where our older son said the speaker fell. It wasn't a fallen speaker, but speaker wires that Easton decided to put in the outlet socket (which my husband forgot to put the cover back on after unplugging his laptop) and he got zapped, and in turn FRIED my husbands $700.00 receiver. Good lesson to him that he's to put those cheap little plastic outlet covers back on when you have a curious toddler in the house.
Thank goodness our neighbor is an ER nurse and he came over right away to examine Easton. He was fine, but he definately got a little zap and hopefully won't be doing that anytime soon.

"Hidden" storage area (look lots of room to buy more stuff)
This photo won't download the correct directon for some reason, but these are my idea books, I rip out the pages from magazines that I like the layout and sort them by "theme", then the pink binder is my scrapbook storage idea book that I gather from photos, internet pages, and blogs.
Got this candle holder for a $1 at a thrift store, bought some little glass bowls for .25 cents each and created some storage for little items, like brads, eyelets, etc.
Stamp storage made out of cassette holders. I cut a piece of cardboard and taped it between holders.

View from standing on top of my husbands desk on the other side of our partition wall.
View from the closet. We had a our contractor built that funny looking box protruding from the wall around our garage door opening with an access panel so we didn't lose 2ft of room.
