Checking In

I think I clicked on "New Post" four times before I just committed myself to write in here. Here's what's going on:
  • The husband is out of town this weekend, so it's just little ol' me and a lot of spare time.
  • For the last four weeks I have been scouring Craigslist for a mattress to turn my sewing room into a spare bedroom.
  • You heard me. I am GIVING UP MY SEWING ROOM.
  • I seriously take up too much of this house. I feel very glutenous about it. Sooo...
  • I have been reorganizing and redistributing my sewing stuff into my work office room.
  • Now we will be able to accommodate guests comfortably. :) (Everyone come and visit me!)
  • Wednesday we picked up a 6 month old, in perfect condition, Serta Queen Mattress for $50 (found through craigslist)! Wife had back problems and they had to get a new bed. I cleaned the fabric today and tomorrow I will purchase a mattress pad for it.
  • I just finished cleaning out my wardrobe closet. My closet is normally an all season closet, but I decided it was time to weed through some things and I have packed up all my summer clothes. It looks neater.
  • Tomorrow I hit the thrift stores to find a bed frame and new-to-me fall clothes.
  • After cleaning my closet I discovered I only love 5 things. Depressing.
  • I need to pick up spray paint to paint some various frames to coordinate.
  • Last thought: One of the greatest exercises in creativity is working with what you have!


  1. Sounds like you've been quite productive! I'd give anything for a new mattress!

  2. Wow you've been (and will be) busy! I know where you're coming from on the sewing room. I sometimes feel the same way. If you can squeeze it in somewhere else go for it - I'm sure you'll feel better when you have guests!

  3. awesome, i call dibs on the bed for nov. 8!

  4. So I have a long weekend in November - book me in.

  5. I'd like to visit the same weekend as Vallen. Gab-fest for sure!!

    You have really been a busy girl! And the creativity statement is so true. If more of us would follow that line of thinking we'd better off financially and environmentally.

  6. Wow! I'm impressed.
    I wish I had an office and a sewing room. Wait, I kinda do. hehe
    Good for you for getting all that done, must feel great!

  7. Wow.. you got a killer deal on that mattress. Lucky gal! I'll plan on dropping by to check it out and stay for a few days over Thanksgiving. heh.

  8. This is really such a GREAT post! So real:)

  9. Just so you know, this post inspired me to clean out my closet and get rid of the items I don't really like, or love, or need, or that don't even fit anymore. So thank you!
