I feel like a Rock Star!

In my new sewing studio that is...! I JUST finished the project and I had to of course take pictures to share! It took many hours of planning and browsing through the internet and magazines, and then a little over 16 hours of manual labor... but it was SEW worth it! Have a look around...

Here's the giant "Before" mess... I took the playroom away from the girls... hence the dusty Disney princesses... And Tinker Bell's fairy dust above the window...

Before

And here's the After!

Here's some new shelving that I put up... complete with my Maw Maw's old cast-iron iron, and my original Auntie Cookie collage! I'm determined to fill that prissy cake stand up with even MORE prissy pin cushions...;-)

The ever dreaded closet shot

My desk area where I do all of my embroidery designs and blogging :-)

This is the view from the door... Isn't it an inviting space? I love it! I love it so much that even though I'm DOG tired I think I'll get off of the computer and sew something!

and yes, I kept Tink... it felt like bad juju to take away the magic fairy dust!

Happy creating!

Also, I am from South Louisiana as well, Lafayette actually : ) I love how you call your grandmother Maw Maw, this is what my children call my mother, they call my dad Paw Paw. It sounds so southern : )
