I'm On a Mission...Lookie what I found!!!
Aren't these just the neatest? Today I went thrifting to a couple of new places with my dear friends Susie. And oh the finds. I found all of these jars and paid under $10 for ALL of them! I got a steal I think. I am going to fill these with my ribbon roses and other crafting goodies that will then be eye candy for my *new* craft room.
OOPS...that cat is out of the bag...well sorta...lol. I decided this past week that I was tired of being sick and tired and that I need something to pre-occupy my mind. So for me that means a decorating project. This one though, hits close to my decorating, creating and crafting heart...my craft/sewing/art room. I have spent a lot of the past few days looking on line at other creative crafters who have organized and their rooms. (Do a google search on craft rooms, flickr has a number of gals who have pictures!) For me this is going to be a HUGE, Yes I said, HUGE understaking. I will be moving my now painting and craft studio that is in my basement up to the room I have my sewing treasures in. Because you see, this room has a window and natural light that I think I need, especially during Michigans long, dark winters!
The planning and organizing have been the hardest for me. I think it is because I want this not only to be functional but to Look pleasing so that I will want to spend time in my room. Cause right now I have just not been motivated to go *Down* to my basement and work. Maybe and newly painted robins egg blue walls corrdinating creamy white bookshelves, desk, tables will call my name on a more daily routine basis. A lot of work...and eyelash batting and my dear sweet hubby who I am working on roping into painting and helping me move furniture to the room.
I will post pictures of how my rooms look now...please look through the clutter and see my new room...that will take me a while...but I will proudly post pictures when I am done!
This is my Sewing room now that everything will be moved into...minus the bed which will be going downstairs.
