My Happy Place

When I think about going to my "happy place"....this is it:

My sewing room! It's basically done, although I have a few decorating ideas in my head I would still like to try to liven up the walls a little.....as though fluorescent green isn't lively enough :)

This is the main wall, with my serger, sewing machine, and cutting table.
Here is some of my "decorating"...some SEW letters that I mod podged.
My sewing machine! Nothing special, but I like it.
My sewing machine has it's own little quilt...complete with pockets for all my must haves while sewing.
My window and ironing corner. I have my "To Do" list and "Wish List" on my magnet board...they are very long.
The curtains were made from fabric I found in my husband's grandma's old scary cellar. She gave it to me...all 10 yards of it...and I LOVE IT!!!
My closet! Lots of fabric...
....and more fabric!!!!
Another view of the closet.
My IKEA shelves and of course I need some tunes while I work.
Okay, I admit...maybe I've gone too far. I just think it's fun to have everything match the decor.
The fan!
Well, thanks for letting me show you around my room...come again!!

Even your closet is green! This is probably the most awesome sewing/craft room I've seen...I thought I was lucky when I had an unfinished room in my basement all to myself-maybe I need to jazz it up a little!

Crystal said...
