Beyond the general de-cluttering, the only real change in here (besides the new floor & baseboards) was swapping out the mirrored sliding closet doors with these simple white curtains I made from some white cotton twill. Our house has these expensive closet doors in every bedroom – I know they’re supposed to make the room look bigger, but I can tell you that here in the sewing room, they didn’t. Probably because they reflected back all the stuff that was in here and made it look even MORE full of stuff. My 7 year old just walked in here and saw the room for the 1st time with the curtain and immediately said that the room looks bigger!

My main reason for doing it was so I could access the whole closet at once, rather than sliding those darn doors back and forth. Often when I’m ironing I park the iron down on the closet shelf, so I need that area open. I can now fill up the whole of the inside without worrying about how to get to large boxes of things right in the middle!

Enough talking, time to get doing!

Commence with the holiday work!

I really don’t like not doing things. My definition of a fun vacation is time in a CLEAN ORGANIZED house so I can make some art. God bless my husband, he goes along with my mania…most of the time. Sometimes he even supports it – I got bamboo flooring for my studio for Christmas!!!! And… Continue Reading

Merry Christmas to all!

Dear Max, Since you’re less than one year old, what you’ll like most about Christmas is the wrapping paper and boxes…you won’t give a hoot about what’s inside them.  I made something for your room for you – so instead of sending it to Massachusetts just so it could get sent back to your home… Continue Reading

Quail quArt!

At the YMCA show I did earlier this month, a couple of the Going Green totes I made had birds with little curliques on their heads & tails: A woman walking by was taken by them, and commissioned me to make an 8″ x 10″ piece of quArt for her mother who loved quail! Now,… Continue Reading
