Got the call, got the job. Passed my drug test and background check. They must not have gotten whiff of my union forming days. Pity, I must now bring down 'the man' one cupcake at a time. Just kidding, I'm actually excited to get some bills paid off in a fun way. The best part of this job is that I'll be driving by Goodwill everyday. I'll be picking up the best pieces to reupholster, slipcover and sell.
I start tomorrow. I am a bit concerned how to work full time, raise three kids, garden, grow our own food, reupholster, and blog/chat with my friends. Things will work out, they always do.
Besides this post is really about the new craft-sewing room. I wanted to have this grand reveal of a space that inspires others. Sadly, it hardly inspires me.lol
I painted the floors white and started moving the cabinets I wanted in the space. The beds have to stay, we have company a few times a year.
Then I started adding color by painting the inside of the cabinets.
This shelf is not done, I plan on some stencils and foo-foo stuff to finish it off. I have about 100 cigar boxes. I've started to transfer scissors, pens, pencils, beads, notions of every sort into the boxes and label them.
What doesn't fit into the boxes will be put into jars. I hope the end result will be a mad woman's version of a french cigar and candy store, twisted, I know. There's just isn't an explanation for this space. I think it will take some time to work out the details and get it the way I envision it.
The focus of the room? My sewing machine, this same machine sewed some of my baby clothes. Almost all of it's attachments and cams have been lost over the years.
So when I saw this 80's Ward machine for 25.00 yesterday I grabbed it!!! Goodwill still has a 603 Singer for 29.00, but I think I better leave it for another lucky individual.
I've named her Galactica! If you squint really hard she looks like an 80's microwave oven.lol She won't replace my Dressmaker, but boy have my sewing options grown!!!
Ho-hum or not, time to get crafty!
