it's happening...

it's not going to be a big, beautiful room like the Pottery Barn space shown below, but my husband is going to build me a "craft area"! We rearranged the furniture in our bedroom and created room for a 6 foot long work table. He's also going to build shelves to hang on the walls so I can store all of my crafting supplies right there within reach. It's not ideal to turn part of our bedroom into a work area, but I just desperately need a place to be creative or I'm going to burst! And since we spend very little time in our actual bedroom, it won't be too big of a deal to lose a portion of it to my new craft space. Hey, my husband has the whole front bedroom as his office, so shouldn't I get a little place of my own? Well, that's what I'm telling myself anyway. So construction begins soon... and you better believe I'll be posting photos! I'm so excited and it will be done just in time to begin sewing Christmas gifts! Yay!

Not only am I happy that you are getting a craft area of your own, but I am equally thrilled to find out that Bro has inherited some of our Dad's phenomenal craftsmanship! Who knew he was so handy :) I can't wait to see the final result!

Hi Lindsey! Congrats on your craft space...now you won't be able to sleep at night because all the crafts will be calling you out of bed. So, I wanted to make a request. I read your blog consistently and I'm putting in a request for a top 10 list. I decided to blog about my top 10 "i'm the mom who..." - i love your sense of humor and outlook on life, and thought you could put together a top 10 list for your readers.

Hi Lindsey! Yes! You should have a space of your own! I am so excited for you. I can totally see you up in the middle of the night (or any other time of the day too) crafting away! I need to learn to take time out of my day to be crafty too. I really miss it!!!

How awesome! I love having my own craft room.

Hi Lindsey!

I'm visiting from Joanie's blog and I just love yours!

I do just about anything for some craft space of my own. Somewhere I could leave unfinished projects and not have to pack them up all the time....like you said, a girl can dream.

That's great your hubby is doing that. I can't wait to see pics of how it turns out.
