Making Progress

So I have made it my goal to Start a Room.....and actually continue working on it until it is done. (new concept for me....I am generally all over the place when it comes to decorating!) I had originally planned on it being my bedroom, but that was a bit too difficult. Then to the Living Room/Dining Room, but my budget isn't allowing me to do that project just yet.

So the winner is.....MY CRAFT/SEWING/GUEST/RELAXING ROOM!!!!







This is the pile of magazines I have been looking at for months (okay..some of them years) and today I decided to go through and rip out what I loved. (gasp!)



I started my "kid-free" afternoon by painting my sewing table a nice light pink. (left over from my daughter's room) Since my sewing machine sat unplugged on the floor.....I decided to head to the garage and continue my painting kick....






This is the new 6 foot sign that I made for the room! Will go GREAT with the white walls.....pink sewing table....black pictures.....and someday the black and white striped curtains. (see below) I can't wait to hang this baby up!!!!! Just need to sand her down a bit to make it look like The Sa-Sea Boutique has been around for ages.




Then I made this sign for a friend of mine, Maria Snider! She is an AMAZING photographer and I LOVE her work and all that she does in the MILLIONS of pictures she has taken of my family. (see her site here ) I wanted to make her a little Thank You for being so great.....so I made her daughter a little frame. (still needs to be sanded as well)
I might be adding some personalized frames to my site...what do you think?

Wow, it will be a VERY sad day when Kacey is in Kindergarden and Collin is in preschool....but I sure will get a lot of stuff done. (little tear, and smile at the same time)
