My Transformed Creative Space!

Well as I said in a previous post, my craft room was transformed! While I was at a leadership class Sunday afternoon my sneaky mother-in-law came over and turned it into an organized space that leaves me to open and creative thinking without all the clutter. Here are some pictures.

new curtainsShe found a very long curtain rod at a thrift store and bought some curtains, and now the kitchen and the craft room are separate! I’m so happy about this, because now I can make things without looking over and feeling bad that there are dishes to wash. She also hung up two cloth shoe organizers on each side to stuff my felt and other fabric in.

She took my fantastic peacock scarf and turned it into a window curtain, and set up a 3 tiered organizer to make more room for my table. Right above that organizer on that empty wall will be some shower rods that my friend Joanna mentioned I should use in a previous comment to hang my fabric on. Those will be installed next week.

Kim did a great job of utilizing shoe organizers! In this she put many of my tools and lace so that they aren’t scattered everywhere underneath me or on top of my table.

Kim hung this small paper and desk supply organizer so that I can arrange my bills and keep them updated. This is going to help so much!

Shelves! Glorious Shelves. Always great for stacking stuff on. These were much needed.

So I am pretty happy with my new creative space. There’s a sense of freedom when I walk in there. Like I said, we still have some more things to add, but it is exponentially better than it ever was when I tried to organize it.


Blah Days.

Truthfully, I’ve been trying all day to think of something worth blogging about that involves visuals but that takes me 5 minutes.


So instead, I am going to tell you about what’s been going on today that is not that exciting at all. I’m sure some of you wanna see the great things I got for my birthday (trust me they are great) but that’s probably not going to happen until tomorrow or Thursday. And I also just thought of this: I wouldn’t be completely honest if I only posted super engaging and fun things all the time, cause that’s not how life is. Blah days are inevitable, and necessary.

Wanna here the most boring part of  my morning? I finished my taxes. Blah.

BUT, we are getting back over $4,000 dollars. So holler atcha girl (is that super tacky? I don’t care. People can know about my money).

I am pretty pumped up about this return (thanks to my son being born last year) because now Daniel and I can enjoy our 2nd year anniversary and not worry about spending money we don’t have. I think our plans are to go home to Miami and stay on the beach for a weekend. We are also going to use a huge chunk of it to continue to chip away at the student loan debt we have. RESPONSIBILITY!

In other news, Abram spilled my coffee on our new (old) rug that Daniel’s granny gave to us. So now I’m gunna have to do a little steam cleaning. Blah.

Our house is a mess, and it is beckoning me to straighten it up. Blah.

I should also probably take a shower. Blah.

Have you had a blah day recently? Do you accept those days and appreciate them for what they are or do you hate them with a fiery passion?


Happy Birthday To Me!

Happy Birthday Pic


A quarter of a century. Scary. So far today has been a great day, and the birthday festivities started last night. I got home from leadership class to find that my craft room was transformed! The organization is fantastic, and I’ll be posting pictures of it this week.

This morning after I took Daniel to work, I received an email from him with a clue to the beginning of a birthday scavenger hunt. I’m about to leave the house to go on adventure. I will post all about it tomorrow!

Happy Birthday to me!
