I know! two posts in one day! ^_^ *does the runnin' man*
Well, we've been doing a little bit of sprucing up around these parts lately. We've been painting our living room and I must say it's been quite the adventure. I actually like painting, it's sorta fun. Well, when it's your house I guess.....I couldn't imagine doing it as a living. Ugh. Anyhoo, we decided to paint each wall in the living room a different color. We're not quite finished but I'll show you the red wall. It came out so lovely. I was a little apprehensive at first, red is such a strong color and I just couldn't see painting the whole room this color. So we did just the one wall. (I'll show you the room as a whole when we're finished.)
My goal was to make it a little more funtional and have my tools really close to hand. (Oh and to get rid of my ArtBin toolbox. It made me feel like I was still at design school.) Also, my fabric stash has grown so large that I can't store it on the table anymore. It now resides on three, yes THREE shelves in my linen closet. The sheets and towels now have a new home. Sorry guys.
Let me also introduce you to my new baby.........
It was time for mama to get a new machine. My old one has served me well, but it literally was like a no frills sewing machine. Like it shouldn't have even had "Singer" printed on it......it should have just said..."Sewing Machine". No cool features or anything, it just did what it was created to do. Sew.
But this new machine......*faints*....it's a Janome Memory Craft 4400, computerized, tons of different stitches, drop in bobbin (I had the old fashion bobbin case before...ugh), and it looks super cool when you turn it on in the dark! Tee heeeee!
Can't wait to start cranking out some new projects on this baby. I feel like such a grown up now! ^_^
