hours later and I have 6 pretty dining napkins I'm not sure I want to give
up.I'm also posting the all the matching
kitchen and dining items.I love how everything
looks together! They are a gift for some friends getting
This is a
set of 6.They each have a different 1"
stripe that coordinates back with the other items.
are with napkin rings pieced together with the same fabrics.
set of Oven Squares and Oven Mitts.Tested and work great!
everything all together.I love how it
So yay, finally I'm done
with my massive cleaning sprawl of my husband and my shared workspace.I actually finished it middle of last
week.I was so excited I started working
right away and didn't get a chance to post pictures for you.Here is the prettiness.
This is my clean organized sewing corner!
Look at that nice open clean floor!
The cork wall was some cork flooring samples that I got from my former job. They didn't want them so I asked to take them home and make more use of them.
Here is that cabinet all organized!
This is my closet. I organize everything in clear plastic stackable boxes and drawers.
I've been reading this great book called Craft, Inc: Turn
Your Creative Hobby into a Business by Meg Mateo Ilasco.It makes sense, is clear, easy to read, and inspiring
through interviews with crafting entrepreneurs we admire.
The beginning of the book explains that
having a room or place that inspires you to create is essential.If you do and you don't like your room,
change it so it does."Decorate your
space so that you're excited and energized to be there."Mine barely does this.It was like we just shoved my stuff in enough
so the space could function, which is about true.Also, I share the space with my husband's at
home office.I can't complain sharing,
he has one corner while I have the rest of the room and the closet.My supplies take over.So this book jump started me to do something
about the space.The last two days I
have been ripping stuff down, taking things apart, purging myself of things I
don't need (which is incredibly hard to do), and just trying to make the space
work.Here are some photos of my
progress though it may seem different.
This is just some of the many books I own.They are taking over my quilting table.On the left is a stackable bookshelf I'm in
the process of taking down.That's my
husband working in the back.
The back left corner is a funny corner that can't really be
used so I just shove stuff in it and stack that stuff on top of each other.
This is starting to look okay.Those bins on the right are full of fabric
that needs to be sorted away.
