Howdy! I'm finally back after over two weeks of working daily for hrs. on end(except Sundays) on our room switching. We actually just started out w/switching two rooms around and ended up w/a total of four!!!! Four rooms totally switched out since the first of Jan!! Whew! What an ordeal and we're not totally finished, but about 3/4 of the way there! Here's a recap of what all we did(see if you can keep up)LOL~ we needed a 'guest' room, so turned my old craft room into the new guest room for a guest who is now staying w/us. So needed to repaint that room entirely.
Then we moved all the stuff out of the little 'prim' room next door(which housed my computer, put the comp/desk temporarily in the laundry room) and put most of my cr. room stuff in the little 'prim' room, until we realized it wasn't all going to fit! So my hubby came up w/the idea to give up his hobby room(he's into trains/model kits, etc) and move into the former prim room, which is a much tighter fit for him too, but he doesn't mind. Then we moved our master bedroom(which has very large furniture into his old hobby room, (which is much smaller, but cozier) and had to find other places to put the extra furniture in, etc.), BUT it gave me a much larger room for my new craft room w/a walk-in closet AND a FIREPLACE!!!
I deep cleaned as we went and purged a bunch of stuff, in between moving all these rooms around. Still need to do some more rearranging/cleaning, but we are really pleased w/how it all turned out. The really NEAT news is, it didn't cost us a thing to do all of this!!! We already had the paint from awhile back!! YIPPEE!!
Also had to repaint the new master b'rm too, and had to do all these room switches in stages. Had to move everything out, before moving all the other furniture in. So still a few more piles of STUFF in places here/there, but the majority of it has all been put in their new space. Now if I can just remember where to sleep!! LOL
R U confused yet???
cross stitch bins..........
This cupboard was in the prim room, if you recall. (showed that room awhile back).
A little close up of the top.....
I absolutely love having a fireplace in my new craft room!! It is so cozy in there. Yes, I still need to find another wood plate for the other plate rack on the right. (Those were already in the room, so decided to keep them).
Well, gotta get back to work! :)) Thanks for stopping by. Hope I didn't confuse ya too much! ha Next time I hope to show you more of the craft room,etc. Stay tuned!!.........Needless to say, I haven't had any time to stitch or sew ~ YET!!! But I did get some new items listed last wk. on Etsy and I plan to get some more kits made up real soon!

I hope everyone is getting back into the swing of things now that the holidays are over. I am taking a little mini-break from my Etsy shop for a few days, why??? Because we are in the middle of SWITCHING rooms around again!!! We don't just move furniture around at our house, we move complete ROOMS around! LOL Been doing it for yrs. but now w/way more aches/pains than we used to have! :))
I am in the process of purging and deep cleaning as well, which I needed to do!!(Nothing like spring cleaning EARLY)! The Lord knows I have way too much STUFF!! SEW, getting rid of some old stuff to make room for all the new goodies I will be selling on Etsy and through my blog. Most of the kits I had made, sold, SEW trying to get more made up, if only I could find my STUFF. There is a 'path' right now through our living room and kitchen, SEW hopefully when I find all my STUFF, I'll be able to list it soon! (Moving the old craft room to a much bigger space, but it will take a little time to sort it all out and reorganize, so please be patient w/me). If anyone needs anything sooner, just let me know and I'll sort thru my STUFF! LOL I'm sure it's here, just not sure where!!
