Fresh Air!

Wow! It sure has been too long since I've posted here at my blog. All is well, I've just been really busy. I've been concentrating on my health and fitness plan because I'm not getting any younger. Less time on the computer means less time on my butt. I even cleaned out (and scrubbed) two kitchen cabinets today! My plan is to do one or two a week.

I've also been organizing my sewing and craft supplies, and making some new things for my room. We are hoping to get the shelves hung next week. I know it seems like it's taking forever but when hubby works 40+ hours a week, he can only do so much. He is doing a wonderful job because he wants me to have the best craft/sewing room a person could have.

So far:
Shelves are completely built. Just need to add the finish and hang.
Murphy bed is finished. Just need to buy new linens.
Sewing machine is set up in the room along with a temporary work table.
Craft supplies are getting organized into boxes, jars, drawers, etc.
All fabric is wrapped! You can see that process here.
Made the curtains. You can see them here.
Made a new ironing board. A tutorial soon to follow.
Bought LOTS of stylish storage containers.

Left to do:
More organizing.
Make a wall organizer to match room.
Make a roman blind for my fabric & supply shelves.
Make the shelves on each side of the Murphy bed (Hubby).
Make a great and functional work table (Hubby).
Make a sewing machine table (Hubby).

There is still a lot to do but it's so much fun organizing!

On another note, the weather has been unseasonably warm. We're breaking all kinds of records! Punkie is really enjoying the open window. I know it's hard to see a black at against the night view in the window, but she's there.


  1. Isn't it wonderful to have such a supportive husband! Mine is here for me whenever I come up with any ideas that I just can't seem to do on my own.

    I can't wait to see the finished room!

  2. What a wonderful treat it is to have a new space to work in! Can't wait for you to churn out your first new project from start to finish in your sewing room!

  3. Ha! Punkie was the first thing I noticed!

    Your craftroom is so close to being exciting!
    It does take so much time, but so worth it in the end.
    I've missed you, but I understand about the butt time.

  4. Awww...what a cute kitty :)
    Good luck with completing the rest of your craft room - I can't wait for
    the finished result!
    Mine is a work in progress too :)

  5. You're making great progress on the sewing room! I love being able to open the windows and let in some FRESH Spring air!

  6. Sounds like you and Brian have been very busy!

    Can you believe the warm pre-spring this year? It's almost TOO warm!

  7. Sure sounds like you've been busy in a very GOOD way!! :) Adorable kitty!! My daughter used to have a black kitty that looked much like yours.

    We too have been having unseasonably warm days... I just hope it doesn't go from cold right to hot without some nice spring breezes and those 'perfect' temps! LOL!

  8. Glad to hear you've been keeping well & busy! I could really benefit from getting off the computer more often too.

  9. I see Punkie!
    You've really been working hard. It will be so exciting to have it all finished and functioning.

  10. I'm so glad you're moving forward with everything! It will be wonderful when you're done!

  11. I hope that you're feeling better! It's great that your craft room is coming along so well. Punkie is cute in the window. :)

  12. I think you're making great progress. We've had the basement project in the works for a couple years now and it's still not

  13. Sounds like your room is coming to get nicely! Can't wait to see it all done!
    I'm loving this weather...we had the windows open yesterday too!
