People are learning stuff all over the place this week. Don't believe me? Check out "What I Learned This Week" over at Musings of a Housewife.
Hello, my name is Wendy and I have craft room envy.
This week I fell in love with yet another person's craft room. You can check it out here. It's one in a long line of craft rooms I've coveted. This week I've learned that, yes, I have a problem. The problem is that my craft room looks nothing like these other glorious creations I've been falling in love with!
Oh sure, I've got a room that in its heart of hearts wants to be a craft room when it grows up. It holds a good portion of the craft
crap mess essentials that I could possibly use one day. If I ever get around to it. I've even got my grandma's old (massive) sewing desk in there. The sewing machine has never actually been in it since the desk has been in my possession... I really do need to learn to sew someday.
Okay, I have done a little sewing. But never on the machine that I own. That's somewhere out in the garage. Collecting dust. But with my friend's help, I was able to sew one outfit for my daughter.
If I could just get my friend to move near me and stand over me constantly, I'd be well on my way. In case that day comes, I've got tubs and tubs of fabrics that I've bought over the years. Yes, that's yet another addiction of mine. Don't even ask me about greeting cards.
But back to the craft room.
One day I'm hoping that it grows up to become something fabulous. A place where I'll actually go to do crafts. Okay, no, I have yet to do a craft in that room. I should probably call it the computer room since that seems to be it's only function right now. But no, I'll hold out hope and call it the craft room. Visualize craftiness. I think that should be my new motto. I could embroider it on a pillow. Or not.
