Having One’s Own Space

Setting aside a space that is one’s own is special!! It should hold treasures and memories and be a place of contentment and peace. ~Lynne

I might as well start my Arts & Crafts category with an admission that my arts & crafts room is in a mess. I have one small bedroom designated as and dedicated to my art, crafts, sewing, hubby’s desk, hubby’s closet, and our files and office supplies. It has two work tables and lots of extra shelves.

Let’s say it’s half organized. I unpacked and organized a lot of boxes and plastic bins about a year ago, and it was looking great. Then about 2 months ago I needed the rest of the plastic bins for my daughter’s moving, so a lot of “stuff” got put out onto my two work tables. And, there it still sits. I plan to start on the reorganization tomorrow!!

Right now I’ll share some pictures of the room prior to this most recent mess. This first one is when I unpacked at first and before I organized the first time.

I already have three followers! I’m excited!

I’m not tech savvy, which I’m sure will become obvious, but I want to learn, and I want to do this myself. So, it took me a long time to accomplish what I did the first day on this new site, and I was exhausted! 🙂

Tonight I want to think about some of the pages I’d like to have and pick at least one to add this evening. Possibilities will be:

City Yard (which will include demolition necessary for our move)

Moving to the Country (which will include clearing land and preparing our home site)

Cats & Dogs

Vegetable Gardening

Flower Gardening

Fowl Friends






Cooking & Baking


I think I’ll start with adding the page for City Yard because it was pretty, and I’ll enjoy sharing the pictures. This will give you some ideas of what my yard in the country might be like or what I’m working toward.

I began this post in the evening of January 4, 2015, and am saving it at 1:06 a.m. January 5.
