A quick Before and After

Editing to Link up to a Goodwill Party Post! Scroll down to the old banguet chair!

I've been doing some improvements to my work area (I mainly work here... but am organizing and making changes that will allow me to do more of my sewing and craft stuff up here too - as opposed to the dining room table). Here are some pics of what I did this week. I've had fun - but, like all projects, the starting is more fun that the finishing for some reason.

An old filing cabinet in the garage. Ugly.

A $3.99 chair from the Goodwill store. Ugly.

The space - I know this looks like a holy mess... but I had pulled everything out of it's place and had a huge pile of fabric scraps, etc.

Ta-Da! - My little workspace. I just use a laptop, so I will be able to easily move it and set up my sewing machine. So far - I'm loving it! Note the chair and filing cabinet - so much better, huh?!

The Dog Days of ... Spring

The weather where I am is slowly getting better - but I stress... slowly. I am so ready for a constant, undoubtedly SPRING season. I think the grayness has gotten in the way of my creativity and motivation to do much lately. My Etsy site has been quiet during this time - which is most likely due to a few different factors, but not the least of them being that I just haven't felt like making many new things or marketing much lately.

However - I did enjoy this project last week. I made the little doggy bed pictured (second picture) for our new puppy, Mighty Boy. He has been the recent excitement at our house and is keeping us busy (in a good way)! It is our first family pet and we couldn't have hoped for a better little guy.

We made this last weekend!

So my daughter was devastated when we didn't win a cake in their school cake walk last Friday night. To calm her sobbing - I said that we should make a cake together the next day. Yes - she thought that was a good idea. And she would like a "Pablo" cake. For those of you without young children - Pablo is a character (the blue penguin) from a show called "The Backyardigans". So - thanks to Nick Jr. com - we were able to get some ideas and voila! You will notice it's my son who actually helped - but baby girl was duly pleased!
