new space

I wasted no time getting a jump start on my New Year's goals. My first order of business was to create my own little space in our house where I could work on crafts. Our house is tiny, but we do have two extra bedrooms. This room didn't have any real purpose except to be a dumping ground for things when we couldn't or didn't want to find space for them. I hate clutter, so this room gave me a lot of anxiety and definitely did not promote creative thinking. There was a considerable lack of storage in there, so lots of items ended up sitting on the floor. It was beginning to look like an episode of hoarders! I'm actually a little embarrassed to show before pictures, but this is the reality of the situation.

I didn't have any money to spend, so I had to make do with the furniture and pictures that could be spared from other parts of the house. My only purchase was my new sewing table, which I love! I'm sure a professional could come in and do amazing things with the place, but I'm pretty proud of my little room. I can feel the creative juices flowing already!


Just looking at these pictures gives me anxiety!


First resolution...check!

  1. YAY! It looks amazing, good job! We have that little tree pillow with our names on it was a wedding gift. How funny.
    Anyway, love the room. Can't wait to see the items you produce now.
