Things are going to get Craftastic up in here!

As many of you may know…. I like a good craft.  Pinterest is my addiction.  I use it for inspiration and as a pseudo vision board.  I think I have had a baby stuff Pinterest board since I first signed up back in the day.

So naturally after we built the new house, I had to have a room for sewing, crafting and now blogging… that goes without saying.  Thanks Rob!

I wanted a room where I could get away and be creative (also pay the bills and do our taxes).

Where the magic happens...

It is in it’s early stages but it is coming along nicely if I do say so myself!

Some of my best memories as a kid was helping my Mom or watching her make my halloween costumes, or making me clothes.

Me as an exasperated clown.

Growing up we never had store bought costumes, and I think that was pretty awesome. I want the same thing for our baby.

When I look around my sewing room, I picture when it will be my turn for those late night sewing projects preparing for Christmas concerts, Halloween or school plays.  I’ve even already downloaded patterns for cloth diapers and a diaper bag.

Not to mention all of the craft projects!

I think one of the joys of being a parent will be the ability to pass on traditions, pour my love into a sewing or knitting project.

Me as a happy mouse, my sister as a sad rabbit.

Even as an adult, I still dress up to hand out Halloween candy.  It will be great to actually be able to dress up to take our child trick or treating.  Yes, I will be one of THOSE parents! and I am o.k with that. 🙂

So many amazing things to share.  Now that I have the sewing room, I have no excuse.  I also know that I have several projects that need finishing…. so it is about to get CRAFTASTIC up in here!
