The hubbs and I were finally bitten by the motivation bug and cleaned/organized the sewing room (we have only lived in the new house for 5 months!). I think it had a little to do with the fact that I had started declutter my fabric stash by creating some OOAK (one-of-a-kind) items... well more like 2 or 3 of a kind. I am starting to prep for the Mom's Time Out event that is coming up in May (date/location TBA). I'll mostly do a post with some pictures in a week or so.
It took me FOREVER to decide how to have the room laid out! We moved things around a zillion times, but finally we removed a book shelve and brought a different one in from another room and things just came together. I happy with the final layout and can't wait to get back to sewing. The room is still not completely done, but here is what it looks like so far.
SOOOO glad I hung on to it. It is perfect to hold my yarn and has a fun vintage feel. The metal tub and an ice bucket I picked up a very long time ago at Walmart. I just love it, but it is has been stashed away for a long time only making a few appearances at parties. But now I get to look at it every day! And now I have a place to display my manikins rather than having them shoved in a corner (they are also sporting some of the items I've been working on recently). The picture was a gift from my very talented sister-in-law two years ago for Christmas. She did the needle work herself. It is the perfect accent!
The cream colored curtains would not have been my first choice since the walls are white, but we already had them. So I'm going to add a table skirt to the cutting table to add a little color to the room (and to hide those boxes). I'm loving this ruffle skirt by Velvet Strawberries but I do not know if I will be able to find the shower curtain, and I don't know if I really want to go through all the work to make one... hum, what to do, what to do?

No matter what I do, my office stuff is ALWAYS messy. But I have it is clutter free as possible. Now all I need is some color on this side of the room. Time to decorate :)
The black board that you can kind of see in the left of this photo is getting cut down and becoming my thread storage. This beautiful board from U-create Crafts is my inspiration. I can not wait to get it finished!
I still have some work to do, but I'm felling a lot more creative in this space than the way it was before! So it's back to work for me!
What do you think?
