Cleaning and Organizing...Again!!!

My sewing room.

I love this room Mr. C built for me.

I am not ashamed of showing it like this as it means I have been creative and that is the best feeling. This is what this room was designed for. Sewing and being happy is in my DNA. I learned to sew when I was a very young girl. My Grandmother, Mother, older Sister and her mother all sewed and it was never even discussed that I would learn to sew and I did.

This is an old Singer that I got out of storage a couple months ago thinking I should be using it for all the paper I have been sewing. Hmmm...once you have a new machine like my Pfaff it is really hard to go backwards. I tried to sew on it but I must admit I keep using my new machine with all of its ease and features I have grown to love.


This is the desk area with fabulous open shelves above which I tend to use as display for my numerous bits of this and that I collect and love. You can also see that I tend to pile things and pending projects on any flat surface I have. Drives Mr. C crazy however this is my room so I can close the door and he doesn't have to see it. :o) When I took these photos I didn't plan on posting the before and hopefully the after (not today!) so the photo cutoffs are a bit incomplete. Yes, you do see my covered up IBM Selectric II typewriter (with changeable font ball) that I will not get rid of. I actually still use it from time to time.


This is another random photo of my very messy room. So yesterday after I took these photos I got the cleaning supplies and a ladder and began at the top to clean and organize this wonderful room I love. Today I am continuing my journey of making this room just that much better for my creativity. I hope to complete my task and take new photos to share with you very soon.

May you have a wonderful and sunny and creative weekend...
Prayers and Blessings to all who have experienced family and/or friends who have been touched by the horrific weather across this country.

  1. Oh .... WOW!!! What a fabulous craft room!! Such a wonderful size. Love looking at all the bits and pieces. No computer here though that I can see ... do you have a computer room? LOL! Don't envy you the tidying up, that's the worst bit, but thoroughly satisfying when done. keeleyxx

  5. You know it doesn't look messy at all to me, but I'm comparing to my craft cottage which atm is crazy messy!!!! I have projects stacked everywhere. I teach a craft class for homeschoolers and we made paper last class. I haven't had the time to put away all the supplies, so they are stacked inside and outside on the porch!!! I had to make party invitations by Sat. for a lady and I still have rubber stamps, paper and glitter everywhere!! LOL I guess you don't care all about this, I just got carried away!!! Sorry!!

  18. Awk! How great to have a craft and a sewing room! 2 machines is often handy when you don't want to change thread and settings but I understand, My Nina has pretty well spoilt me as well. Can't wait to see how you tweak an already very cool room! (I'm a piler as well, vbsigh)

  19. Love this room. I to have a Pfaff (Creative Vision). I treat it like royalty, so when it came to sewing on paper I bought an inexpensive Brother machine at Costco. It is a fun little machine too. Wish my sewing room was more organized though. LOL
