THE BEFORE...

Sew with serious embarrassment, I post pictures of
my Sewing/Crafting Room.  At the moment it is a
work in progress and I can't begin to sew or craft in it,
in it's current condition.  We have had some major drama
for a few months now.  In March we moved into an
adorable, rock house with more charm than I could stand.

It was so tiny, but I was determined to make it work. 
It was cheap...
but as with anything you get what you pay for...
so 3 weeks into our stay
there, we weren't even unpacked
completely when we started having
major problems with the electrical system. 
The house was 90 years old.

So we decided to move.  We spent the next 6 weeks
living out of boxes,
removing 30 years worth of my
grandma's life from her house, and went
back and forth trying to live between
2 places while updating one.  We
cleaned, we painted, we carpeted,
we did alittle of everything.

Well now that brings me to the
Craft/Sewing room...I have no time and
no energy left to get it together, but I am
dying to sew and craft.  I am dreaming
about it oddly enough, I can't sleep at
 night because I have so many ideas
running around in my head
dying to escape into reality.


Don't mind the date on the pictures,
I always forget to change the
date on my little Kodak pint and shoot. 
So this room has serious potential...
I love theshelving, the bookcases and
the storage options.  My only dislike
is the room is small, like 8 x 10. 
I have 10 18 gallon totes of fabric dying to
jump on the shelves.  I have room for embellishments
( the red boxes with drawers came
from the Walmart Hardware isle)
and for all my Close to My Heart stuff...

                                       

I have a heavy duty bookshelf in the
back right that my grandad made
more than 30 years ago, it is hard at work,
holding all my junk.  I love the
IKEA expedit shelves for the
island/cutting table.  I'm a shorty so it is the
perfect height for me. 

It is positively a mess...a giant mess,
but slowly it is coming together. 
I have to use this room for most
of my food storage as well,
so every inch of this room is accounted for.
This is the best find ever...KMART
has the best price and size of these
handy, dandy shoe organizers. 
I have one on each side of the door
and they are packed full.
 My latest find is these sweet magazine
holders, all white 5 pack for $1.99
at IKEA of course.  I will post as I
complete each area...so stay tuned for the
great RE-DO.

I just love this time of year...
the wind, the thunder, the rain...
but the best is the
smell of wet dirt.
I bet that's not what
you thought I'd say, lol.
In Arizona it's a rare smell.
It will be depressingly humid tomorrow
but the dust will be settled.

Happy Monsooning all my AZ Peeps.

WOW...what can I say. 
I had no idea it had been just a
little more than a year
since I last posted. 
So to get the ball rolling again,
here is what takes
up all of my free time...
My Family...
but I promised myself I would start
this whole blog,
craft, knot,
sew and repeat thing again.


Hope you enjoy my Yankee Baby,
I was so proud of him this year.
