I Can’t Wait…Oh Wait…Yes, I Can!

It will be around August 16th. Part of me can not wait and the other part of me doesn’t want that date to ever come. That will be when Dillon moves off for college (if we ever get his dorm application fee sent in) and I get my sewing room back.

I am in love with this sewing room.

sewing room 4-11 002It is from a new blog I found. Sew Many Ways. To get a room like this, My Man and I would have to build an addition onto our house. Like a three-car-garage-with-a-bonus- room-over-it kind of addition. I would get the bonus room and MM would get the “garage” part for his office and wood working. I know we would never actually park our cars in there. It would probably have one garage door for pulling in the cars to be worked on. It would have to be attached to the house because I don’t want to go outside on rainy or cold days. Or rainy, cold days for that matter.

I would move the laundry room in there, too.

I can dream, can’t I?

It will just have to be a dream for now. Here is my sewing room.

It is tiny. It is the space right over the foyer downstairs, that at Christmas time I wish we had left open so I could have a banister going all the way down the stairs to hang garland from, but we decided to make into a small room we called the sewing room, then the computer room and now will be a sewing room once again. It was once MM office when he first started surveying almost 20 years ago. Now it is just called a mess!

I had called myself “straightening” it up once, but after seeing my dream sewing room, I’m not even close.

The cool thing about my dream room is all the clever and cute ways she found to organize her sewing and craft things. Although the room may look like she spent a small fortune, she didn’t. I am so inspired. Now, I can do what I do best and improvise.

I am going to share all my ideas and improvisations with you over the next seven months. Feel free to copy any idea or improvise as only you can! When Dillon moves out and I move in I will show you how I am going to put it all together. If I can with out crying. My baby will be gone.

Big S-I-G-H!

Here’s what I made for it yesterday. String Covered Cans. This can be used anywhere.

sewing room 019I have been feeling somewhat guilty for “copying” others. Through Ecclesiastes 1:9-10 says, “What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun. Is there anything of which one can say, ‘Look! This is something new’?”  We are all inspired by what we see in nature and by others. Other bloggers blog to share what they think, make, redecorate. (haha, I rhymed.) That’s why I blog; to share what Jesus has taught me and to let you know I am just like you. So, I thank my Lord for all the ideas out there and for everyone that shares.

Love you all,

  1. Jayne, love the string cans.. have you ever done the masking tape and brown shoe polish ?? Could be a good project for the little girl who stays with you. Just tear off pieces of tape and put on can box or whatever, over laping , haphazard, or just however till covered. then cover with brown shoepolish. Suppose to have the effect of leather. love your blog, and how you see things. Have a blessed day, Bonnie

      I haven’t thought about those in years!!! I did those as a little girl. Boo would love to do that. Thanks for the reminder! We just may do that tomorrow! Thanks for the sweet comment.

    I’ve always thought a bonus room over the garage would be wonderful to fill up with sewing/art supplies. :) That day in August will arrive soon enough.

Hearing from you makes my day!
