so after obsessively scouring the internet for craft room inspiration, i realized that there is more out there than i could possibly dream of. i just wanted to share a few that spoke to me. they are sweet, colorful, imaginative, and functional.

House on Hill Road has a great little craft room... it is so bright, so cheerful, not to mention neat and tidy (something i really aspire to be, but fall a bit short...).
SouleMama has a beautiful space! i love her vintage style. she has a beautiful cutting table that i covet... boy do i need to hit the flee markets!
and then there is Meg Duerksen's (keeper of the Whatever blog) craft space... i love that her space looks like it is used daily, i can find the beauty in her mess. she has beautiful taste, mounds of colorful pillows everywhere, and a chalkboard wall. i love it.
anyway, i must return to sewing but i just wanted to share the beauty!

craft room.

so i should really be sewing right now , but i am totally obsessing about decorating and reworking my craft space right now. i am surfing the net rifling through other blogs trying to find inspiration for my most sacred space.
i have a fully stocked stash, but i am unsatisfied with the organization (or disorganization really) of it all. so i am measuring and plotting, trying to make it all make more sense. also... it could use a bit more style, and maybe some paint...

So I realized today that it has been month since my last post...
I think that's why I was putting off creating a blog in the first place. I was never good at keeping a journal... I have about 8 partially filled blank books( most of them have about 3 entries) from various stages of my life. I always start out with good intentions but lack the follow through needed to keep up with it. So after my best friend reminded me I had a blog while our children were playing today, I decided it was time to get out from behind my sewing machine and try this blog thing once more.

I haven't been slacking. As I stated earlier, I've been behind my sewing machine working hard on gown orders. I believe I mentioned before that I have an etsy shop and right now I've been pretty busy making handmade maternity hospital gowns. I hope to add more items to my shop this spring... I am working on new designs for womens and maternity apparel. Anyway I thought I would share a few shots of one of my latest gowns:

It is a bold print and it makes quite a statement. When I was finished sewing it it really made me smile.

[The pictures were taken in my little girls room (another work in progress). There is still some painting to be done, window treatments to finish, lighting to install, and art to hang. I am hoping to finish the painting when the weather gets nice again and I can have the windows open.
One day I will post pictures of her finished room...]

So it was nice to blog again... thanks Tess for reminding me!
