Creating a Sewing Room - Cabinets

I really don't have a decorator bone in my body.  I'm OKwith leaving my furniture in the same location for years.  When we bought our recent home near a lake, I earmarked a girls bedroom downstairs to be my sewing room.  Keep in mind that I have not sewed for a while.  However, that does not mean that I got rid of all of my stash or craft items.  No, I packed it all up and moved it to our current home.

Here is how the room looked on the realtor listing.  Not my favorite colors but I'd rather work with the colors than repaint the room.  I really dislike painting.  The room was listed as being 16.4 by 14 in size.  I can work with that.  We removed the carpet and had linoleum added to this room.  This was the dogs room when we first moved into this home last year and we went to work.  I was able to look in on the girls through a camer.  Plenty of room to roam for them.  The dogs were not a fan of it but it helped in the year that we had them at our newer home for their last year.

I built one more of these cabinets for the right side of the wall.  They came from Lowes.  They will house as much as they can but mostly fabric.  Stay tuned for more photos from the craft room setup over the last couple of months.

Finding my creative outlet

It's been too long since I've crafted or even had a blog entry for that matter.  I've made cards here and there but nothing on fabric like a quilt or wall-hanging.  It always seemed that we were either packing up the old home, remodeling the old home, selling the old home, unpacking, etc.  Then I started dealing with difficult items.  Both my dogs passed this year in March and September.  They were 15 year old yorkies and were the apple of our eyes.  Mindy and Mandy.


As I finally come to terms with losing them, I was hit with another loss.  My sister passed away at the beginning of this month.  She was only 55.  She fought a long and hard battle with Systemic Scleroderma .  I'm hoping that by getting back into the blogging scene and crafting, it will keep my mind distracted as I work through these losses.  Thanks for visiting and I look forward to sharing my new craft room photos.  Here's to some new crafty adventures.
