A room of one's own (design)

We have designated a room at our new place for such activities as art, homework, crafting and coloring.  It took quite a bit of painting (walls and furniture), but I am very very happy with our new CRAFT ROOM. 

drum roll now. . .

my grandmother's cedar chest and sewing machine

My Aunt Donna and my mom as girls with their dolls.  I love this photo.

Cork inspiration board, storage, letters and wood painting.

a floral lady to keep me company at the sewing machine.

A place for kid artwork.
ahh.  Now, what shall I make?

starting to feel like home

Shaping the environment around me has always been an important part of my process when adapting to a new place.  Just ask my freshmen college roommate about floral contact paper.
With A LOT of help from my mom (window treatment seamstress extraordinnaire) and dad (curtain hanger par excellence), some homemade pillows and new lampshades, my living room is beginning to feel home-ish.  Did I mention the artwork by my sis?  And now ladies and gentlemen, I give you, my living room.

Ain't it hot??
