Judging by the pile up in Star’s closets, it should be time for the next swap! But, we still have over a month. Full swap details are on the swap page. Sorry for the grainy pictures – these were taken in the early morning light, but I think they capture the pre-swap chaos that Star’s closet and my craft area become.
Oh, Jennifer, did you say you have a craft area? Yes, I did; and yes, I do. I’ve mentioned elsewhere that I’m a passionate crafter. My current crafty obsessions are jewelry making, sewing, quilting, knitting and crocheting. During my pregnancy, I was super into mosaics, and I had hoped to have a belly cast done and cover it with a beautiful mosaic. But, as I’ve also said, our daughter came early and I hadn’t yet done the belly cast.
My craft area takes up about one-third of our living room, or “front room” as we call it. You can see an overview of the area in this picture. Behind Star, and behind the doggies on the table, is my craft area. You can see my sewing machine set up on the table. You can’t see the boxes full of fabric, and the tower full of yarn, but you get the idea. I try to keep this area for mommy’s special craft area – Star knows that she’s not allowed there, and I try, but fail, to keep KinderCycle out of there as well.
My craftiness has resulted in a few guest blog appearances recently. My Jellyfish Tutorial was featured on Rookie Moms. And, last week, the sweater that I turned into a skirt for me and pants for Star was featured on New Dress a Day! I love both websites and it is such an honor to have my stuff deemed worthy!
