What a fun color! It's not shocking at all! Your craft room is supposed to inspire you and I'd say that color is perfect for feeling up and creative! So, now I've seen a few "workroom" makeovers and I want to do mine! Can't wait for these people I live with (hubby and kids) to return to work and school. I NEED my space!
Me neither! If I leave in a rush in the morning without making my bed.....I'll make it BEFORE I get in to sleep. My family thinks I'm nuts. That trait didn't seem to rub off on any of them.
But, I do seriously need to clean my craft room. I like to jokingly call it my "studio" like all the craft shows on TV. But, it's really just an area of my basement. Lucky I don't have to sleep in there! I can just leave it! LOL When I was a teen, my bedroom was my craft room like yours. And, I had the same issues then that I have now. I guess you never grow out of them.
I suppose I should get off the computer and go clean my studio. But, I'm really enjoying the company here today! Tammy
Good job julieboolie! Wanna come over and clean my room? haha I simply HAVE to clean whatever space I am working in BEFORE I make an awful mess of it! Once I get working on a project I totally trash the place. Then I have to clean it all. Can't think in a mess. Then, once the space is clean again, I can't wait to mess it up It's a vicious cycle.
Cool tees! I especially love the covered buttons you added to the recon. I'm a sucker for those kind of details. The recon caused me to experience a "Duh!" moment. I have a long (and somewhat wide ) torso and finding ready made stuff that will go over my pants waistband is almost impossible. Why did I NEVER think of adding banding like you did! It's easier than losing weight! Just another reason why I am so glad to have found this site! Who said you can't teach an old dog new tricks?
Thanks for the welcome! "I can point you to a few if you need it, just send me a pm. " Oh I don't really need to find them. It's better to just know folks for who they are rather than categorize them! Everyone does sound young and hip here! Maybe it will rub off on me! ;)Won't my DDs be happy!
I live in Farmington Hills. About an hours drive from Flint. I have popped in to the MI boards and will keep my eye on it for a meet someday! That would be fun. I'm also looking forward to a swap as soon as I can figure them out. Ha ha.
I've had time today to explore Craftster and I'm sure I'm driving my family nuts telling them of all I've seen done here. This is a great site and I can't wait to try my hand at some of the new ideas I've found. Craftster is just what this dusty crafter has needed to freshen up! Woohoo!
(I'm using green in your honor! )This is one of the most beautiful and pulled together weddings I've seen in a long time. Such a refreshing departure from the traditional. If I could plan my own over (it was 24 years ago!) I'd surely do something fun like this. Only, I'm not very clever with these things. I'm going to show this to my daughter. At 21, she's been going to several friend's weddings and will appreciate how cool (am I allowed to use that?) yours was! Thanks for sharing and the best wishes of all to you and your new hubby!
I just wanted to take a minute to introduce myself here. I found this site late in November and have only posted a few times. There is SO much going on here! I love it, but, do find myself wandering around trying to find my way. Eventually I'll get it. LOL
I can't even remember how I found my way here! I think it was through a link when I was Googling something I saw on Craft Lab.
The one thing I have wondered about....is anybody here in their 40's? You all sound so young and fresh, I feel like an old coot trying to keep up with you! LOL I am so impressed by the skills, talent and chuztpah everybody here has! I've seen several things that have inspired me to "create" and can hardly wait for my family to return to work and school, leave me alone and let ME get to my hobbies!
And what are those, you ask? I dabble in just about everything. Sewing, fabric crafting, stain glass, just about anything that uses a hot glue gun (love that thing! hahaha), cross stitching and embroidery. But, as true crafter at heart, I will give just about anything a try. Lately, I have taken an interest in recon clothing. I haven't actually tried anything yet, but, the stuff I've seen here will definitely get me going on ASAP! And, I suppose, that is where I feel old. Clothing recon seems like something for the youngsters. I suppose I could make stuff for my girls. I have 3, aged 14, 19, 21. I live in southeast Michigan, in the burbs.
I love all things vintage and retro. Must be the draw to my childhood? LOL I'm sure by now you've also noticed my penchant to be long winded! So, anyway, I'm glad I found this site and know I will find the creative inspiration I've been seeking. Don't have any crafty friends around here. Is it them that needs a life or me?
