Good evening my sweets, I am back. Back on track. Somewhat.
A lot of things have been going haywire over here, but the worst of it seems to be over and the only mess that is left has been made by yours truly.
Last Friday I sent out a cry for help on Facebook.
Remember my craft room challenge? Well things aren’t going as I planned.
Instead of dutifully sewing through a pile of beautiful fabric in my craft room, I was bringing in new closets and dumping the contents of the old ones everywhere. I really, truly had every intention last Friday to clear my table, set my sewing machine free and dig in and work my way to the finish line of my first craft room challenge deadline.
And then stuff happened…..
And I happened…….
And I really liked that new closet in my craft room. But it made me hate the things that were standing next to it and then it totally spiraled out of control.
I cleared my office corner of all the stuff that was there and took inventory of what and how I wanted to change it.
Of course that meant that my table was now nowhere to be found anymore under the mountain of stuff, and sewing anything in there was really out of the question.
But I felt such a serge of energy just looking at the new possibilities and it truly did wonders for my soul. So I went with it.
I made a list and I dove in, head first…..
First stop. Buy a few new things (only a few I am doing this on a budget). So I invited my love to an IKEA breakfast (he is such a sucker for food, I can tempt him to do just about anything that way).
And we started to follow the yellow brick road….
I was really good. I almost bought only what I came for……
Then the deconstruction, makeover and reconstruction could start for real.
But not until we made an early morning visit to a flea market first.
This is such treat on Sunday morning. This flea market is held at an cattle market. During the week there are cows standing where the vendors are showing their wares. Since it is covered you can even browse leisurely when it is raining. I’ll go again soon and show you a bit of how a flea market in this region looks like.
But first for me it was back to work again…..
I have nothing to show you yet. And the full reveal might take me a while.
(yeah I know how to build a little suspense….)
Because, now that I have that new closet in there, and my office corner is starting to look all new and lovely, the rest of the room is starting to look dated, dull and not up to par.
Isn’t that just how it works. You do one thing…. and to do that you have to move some stuff around….. and that means moving more things and finding new homes for leftover items……. and then the old stuff that is still there clashes with your new projects….. and then you even get some ‘good’ ideas….. and then it just spirals out of control……
So I guess I have set myself a new Craft Room Challenge: Complete Makeover of the Craft Room itself.
Ha, as long as I keep myself busy…..
So stay tuned for some projects along the way and a full craft room reveal as soon as I can make it happen.
