What I Should Be Doing

is moving furniture back into this room.

Craft room with ceiling

From this room.

the guest bedroom

Because my mom is arriving from Brazil tomorrow morning.  And this is where she’s supposed to sleep.  We do have a futon where I can put her for a couple of days if I need to, but that’s not ideal.

We had my craft room painted sort of suddenly.  I’ve been wanting to do it for awhile and we got a couple of estimates and found someone who had room in her schedule which gave us 4 days to empty a very full room.  And it had to be empty because of the ceiling (it required a lot of brush work because of the beams and slats, etc.).  Moving the stuff went pretty quickly although we were rushing around at the last minute, as always.  Gracie wasn’t sure what to make of things.  Where’d all her toys go?

The craft room pre painting

Now the room is painted and it looks amazing!  (no photos yet.  you have to wait for the finished product.  the first photo is the “before” picture.)  The shelves will be put up next weekend (giving the paint plenty of time to dry).  We can’t move all the furniture in because we are hoping to have the floor replaced in about two weeks.  Currently, it’s linoleum which is okay, but it has a large indentation in the middle from a rug, and my chairs and furniture have put a ton of dents in the floor.  We are going to go with wood laminate which will hold up better for us.  I’m only bring back the stuff on wheels (which is a lot of the furniture), my big fabric dresser, and the stuff that will go on the shelves.  That’s 80% of the stuff.

I’d better get to it.

About Me

Welcome to my spot on the web where I talk about needlework, crafts, and [many] other random things.

A few tidbits about me: I met my husband in college, flirting over tuba letters in the Penn Band. Our dog, CJ, and our cat, Sabrina, round out our family. I'm a sewist, knitter and needlepointer, and an occasional scrapbooker. I love organizing, reading, making jewelry, and hiking. A Chicago girl at heart, I am an avid follower the Cubs, Bears, and Blackhawks.

A place for me to sell my handmade goods. My style? It's fun and funky with a hint of romance.
