My scrapbook stuff still sits safely in boxes in our storage unit and I've moved on from that (for now). Thanks to Pinterest, I've found lots of sewing projects (who hasn't?!) that I've wanted to try my hand at but I didn't have a sewing machine. So...I asked Santa for one :) My Christmas this year pretty much revolved around sewing and all things related to that which is totally cool with me!
Here's a little sneak peek at my craft room the way it is right now. I still want to get some things on the walls and put some curtains up (and I'm sure I will paint at some point) but for now...
I had a little fun at Hobby Lobby yesterday buying fabric. I seriously could spend a small fortune in that store. It's dangerous. Do you gather a theme? I like fun, bright springy colors and I like girly colors of course. I have a couple projects in mind. You'll notice an Eiffel Tower in there. I think I must have an obsession. They had about 4 or 5 fabrics that had Eiffel Towers or Paris themes on them and it was ALL I could do not to buy them all lol I settled on one (for now haha).
This isn't exactly the machine that "Santa" (aka my sweet hubby) bought for me but he told me he didn't mind if I exchanged it for what I wanted since I had been doing so much research on them. He really is the sweetest thing. He knew what he got me wasn't exactly what I wanted but he wanted to make sure I had one to open Christmas morning. I love him Oh So Much.
I love this sign :) I got it for Christmas too.
This is on the other side of my craft room (ick!). Maybe seeing it often will remind me to use it! haha
In my future house (if I had my way), I'd like a room off of a main living area with french doors to be my craft room and personal office. One big enough that I could put a nice big table in the middle so that when I have kids and they get big enough, they can work on projects too. If my future children are anything like their mommy, they will love all things craft related from a very young age. I don't like being secluded from everything and when I am, I'm less likely to work on anything that I want to work on. Does that make sense? I found this idea at The Inspired Room. Doesn't it look perfect?? There are lots of ideas like that on her website. That could get me in trouble ;)
Do you like crafty projects? Do you sew? Do you have a happy place? I recommend it to everyone :)
How do you like my new blog look and logo? I like the way it turned out. I got bored one night and played around with my wacom tablet. I think I'll keep it this way for a while.
