~ Two on Tuesday ~


Two things that make me smile:

* new pink shoes I bought when I was at the campground - they were only $8


* being finally finished with my new craft room. 

My Vince did a great job patching up the holes from the shelves and then painting the room.  I helped a little, but he did most of the work.


For about 5 days, my house was a total mess with all of my yarn and craft stuff strewn about.  Here's a few pictures.




the stuff on the bed was put on the floor when it was time to sleep.




(there's a sneak peek of a new square that I crocheted for SIBOL - just need to write the pattern up)

After 2 days of painting - 2 coats and the trim - it took me about 3 days to figure out how to get everything back in the room.  We added the bunk beds and they took up a lot of the floor space.

This is what you see when you look in the door:


I still have to buy a twin mattress for the top, but for now it'll do.  There are 4 containers under the bunk bed holding more yarn.

As soon as you walk in and turn to the right, there is my desk and the large shelves on the wall:


The view of the left side of the room:


And this is my closet.  My clothes are in here because my husband takes up the closet in our bedroom with his dress clothes, regular clothes and work uniforms.  And as you can tell from the small amount of room that my clothes take up - I'm definitely not a 'fashionista'.  I think I need to get my daughter Erica to take me shopping.  :)


I love my craft room and I hope to never, ever, ever, ever re-paint or add any other furniture again.  :)

  2. I thought I had a lot of things stashed..I don't even come close to you..LOL. How fun was that stuff to move around and then find a new home for them. Having just moved all my stuff from a large room to a much much smaller "room" I just refelt all the pain..I too don't want to move my things or paint a room anytime soon. Blessings my friend

  7. That's a lot of stash. Your craft room looks great Debi, you're lucky to have a dedicated room for your crafts. Love the pink canvas shoes. You really are 'in the pink' :)

    Retail therapy with your daughter sounds like an excellent plan.

  9. Looks fantastic, Debi! I was going to ask if you'd like to come work your magic on my craft room, but I have a feeling you're not interested. LOL ;D Seriously, my craft room is realllllly bad right now. I need to figure out some storage solutions before I can't get in here! :O

  13. debi-since you're the crochet guru I thought i'd ask you this question. i'm wanting to make a scarf to look like this http://jennozkan.com/2010/uncategorized/crochet-ribbed-scarf-its-like-knitting-only-better/
    and am not too sure on her instructions. cant i just get the same look by working in the back loops only to make a ribbed effect? also, if you don't get this can you suggest a pattern for a scarf that looks similar? i'm wanting to make a bunch of scarfs for xmas gifts this year and hit up the michaels' sale yesterday! woo hoo!

    1. Hi Niki. You can work the scarf in the back loops of the hdc but you will end up with only a line across - not the 2 top loops that makes it look kind of like knitting.

      The hdc stitch basically has 3 loops - the front top loop, the back top loop and the side loop. The designer of that scarf wants you to crochet into the side loop only. That way the 2 top loops will resemble the knit stitches.

  18. I missed your craft room as I was busy with my Diwali festival. After having a visual tour of your craft room, I was drooling over the amount of yarn you have! And some yarns are too big, I might have to use both hands to lift !:) your craft room looks very cozy. I wish I too had one:)
    And about clothes, I too spend more on yarn than on clothes. But my closet is bigger than you :) I must show these pics to my husband as he feels I am going crazy buying yarns! Thank you for the craft room tour . I enjoyed and loved touring it! :)

  28. I bet you are feeling quite accomplished by having all the supplies organized and your room back in order. I love what you did and isn't it great having your own space and a place to dream and create. I have my room too, but most times my yarn ends up in the living room where the tv and my husband are. The back bedroom where all my things are feels isolated from everyone. I only come back here to get on my pc, rummage around for something I need or to actually sew. Yes, it never stays organized for long, and yes, the door isn't open very often. Now if I had a room like yours....nice and bright with shelves, I might spend more time playing in that room.
