As many of you may know…. I like a good craft. Pinterest is my addiction. I use it for inspiration and as a pseudo vision board. I think I have had a baby stuff Pinterest board since I first signed up back in the day.
So naturally after we built the new house, I had to have a room for sewing, crafting and now blogging… that goes without saying. Thanks Rob!
I wanted a room where I could get away and be creative (also pay the bills and do our taxes).
It is in it’s early stages but it is coming along nicely if I do say so myself!
Some of my best memories as a kid was helping my Mom or watching her make my halloween costumes, or making me clothes.
Growing up we never had store bought costumes, and I think that was pretty awesome. I want the same thing for our baby.
When I look around my sewing room, I picture when it will be my turn for those late night sewing projects preparing for Christmas concerts, Halloween or school plays. I’ve even already downloaded patterns for cloth diapers and a diaper bag.
Not to mention all of the craft projects!
I think one of the joys of being a parent will be the ability to pass on traditions, pour my love into a sewing or knitting project.
Even as an adult, I still dress up to hand out Halloween candy. It will be great to actually be able to dress up to take our child trick or treating. Yes, I will be one of THOSE parents! and I am o.k with that. 🙂
So many amazing things to share. Now that I have the sewing room, I have no excuse. I also know that I have several projects that need finishing…. so it is about to get CRAFTASTIC up in here!
