I've learned that when I can sit down at my sewing machine...or at least find it amongst fabric, doll body parts and who knows what else...it's easier to make progress on a project.
Above is a pic of the little area where I craft. My husband was sweet enough to put up some shelving a couple of years ago (mostly because he couldn't walk in the room because all my craft supplies were on the floor in boxes!) Boy, do I need to purge the items it holds...but I don't know where to start!
My sewing machine is a $99 special from WalMart he surprised me with when we moved back home after he got out of the Air Force back in 1993. You know, I've never oiled it or had it worked on...I don't really even remember dusting it...LOL! It's been good to me and I love it so much.
The desk it sits on is a simple piece of furniture that my mom's dad made for her YEARS ago. The rocking chair to the left is where I generally fall asleep at night before I stumble off to bed. It was my mom's too and it's what she rocked me in as a baby. Worse for the wear, and not worth anything, but I love it!
Some of my childhood toys sit on the top shelf. Again, not worth anything, but when I look up at them from time to time it reminds me to think/feel with the heart of a child when possible: love your dollies, never trade your best marbles, get excited for the holidays, don't get wound up too tight (that's when things break)!
But back to adulthood...time to clean my craft area...where to start?!?
