I love hobbies that keep me busy. Kayaking, dancing, Nancy Drew (keeps my hands busy so it counts). This past summer, I helped out with a knitting class as part of the Kids on Campus summer youth program at Northwest Florida State College. I finally learned the basics of knitting! I remember watching my family… Continue reading Carmen’s Thoughts – Knitting
I finally found my crafting stool. We ended up buying it at Amazon. We only spent about $50.00, and it is the perfect height. I still haven’t really crafted or even organized under the table yet, but I have my chair! Blessings.
I have lots of small items from my Mom that when I see them brings instant happy memories. These plaques are one of those memories, now happily hanging in my craft room by the door. So that you can read them: The translations are not great as I used Google Translator, and, well just in… Continue reading Translations
My Mom grew up in Germany, and for her trade she became a seamstress. Her sewing basket has been in my closet for years, and I have gone to it for a variety of items, but really hadn’t paid it attention. She has a ton of items in it, but that is for another… Continue reading Wooden Spools & Buttons

David has been working on his office area now that I thought I had everything out. Ha. I forgot about the closet. You know, where everything was stored. Yep. So…what once was a wonderful, calm space is now cluttered. I need to go through all of this before I even think about finding a spot… Continue reading Craft Room – Part 5 – Reality
I am still working on my craft room, but the layout is done. I need to hang some shelves, and photos. I have to get all of the crafting supplies upstairs as well, but progress. Blessings!
Painting is done. I am so happy with the shades of grey with the bright white trim. We decided that a door would make a good craft table. The doors are sold without paint or stain for about $35.00. We sanded and painted the top and sides. David drilled holes for the cables (sewing machines).… Continue reading Craft Room – Part 3
Progress, right? The window wall is the darker of the two shades of grey that we chose. It seems that we always take pictures later in the day. I will try to be better about the pictures. But, I love the contrast of the colors with the bright white of the doors, and trim.… Continue reading Craft Room – Part 2
We have started the transition of Stephen’s old room to my craft/work room. The room needed to be cleaned first. Then paint. So…before: It was the same color, not the greatest of pictures. Paint. I wanted two tones of grey. Or gray. Whatever. Grey. It would be a good color for accents of black, white,… Continue reading Craft Room
