As I read Jamie's prompt today, I knew I had to respond!
What do you wish to transform?
Several weeks ago I entered a contest to win a $25,000 kitchen makeover. Yesterday the first round of 100 finalists was announced and I did not make the cut. I could not believe how disappointed I was!
Here is my entry:
Cinderella Transformation Needed Description: When I was growing up, the kitchen was the heart of our home. Cooking meals and baking wonderful-smelling treats, long chats over delicious meals - these always kept our family together with so much laughter and sharing.Today, I would love to have that intimacy. But our space now is too small, cluttered and very outdated. I want light, space, plenty of room to move around: a place for baking where I can actually roll out pastries and cookie dough; a place where my husband and I can comfortably work together to create a meal; a place where visitors feel welcome and can pitch in; and a place finally, for all my many cookbooks and my husbands steins, both of which are homeless.I would so love for my cramped, "cottagey"-styled kitchen to have a Cinderella transformation.On my wish list would be new, updated cabinets and appliances, a new wall of cupboards and cabinets with a baking centre, all sporting a fresh, new outlook!
In less than 250 words I put my dream on paper. With Jamie's question, I know that I have to take that dream and actually do it! So, I want and need to transform my kitchen, and as well my living space. No more talking and dreaming - action is required!
