Dear Self,

I'm very proud of you. You have put in a lot of hours lately turning your craft room into a relaxing and inviting place. A place to escape from your crazy but joyful life as a mom of 5.

You've made decisions and commited to color schemes.

You've bought items that made your heart sing.

You've been painting yellow brackets and white shelves, rearranging furniture and dreaming of whether you should get the little bird cage or mini cake stand with cloche... all at the same time.

You even squeezed in some digital crafting Sunday to create the sweetest little calendar banner to drape from your new yellow brackets. It's going to look amazing!
I hope to share a free download soon of this sweet calendar! Just need to figure out how!

You even bit the bullet and ordered the baskets, the only baskets you could find in the right color and size (and price!) and in the end, it is exactly what you never knew you always wanted. Just wait until you spiffy them up with a ruffle!,0&resMode=sharp&op_usm=0.9,0.5,0,0
I love seeing you so excited about silly things like baskets and yellow brackets. Not much gets you jazzy these days so this is a nice change of pace. And I know, once your little craft space (studio, craft room, craft studio- whatever you decide to call it!) is finished, you are going to have a blast going in there to create every chance you get.


P.S. You look stunning today in that navy and white striped shirt with the neon yellow/green embellishment around the neckline. I know it is your new favorite.


  1. You are adorable!! I cannot wait to see your lil' crafting sanctuary. :) And I totally understand how the little things make your heart happy- I'm the same way (imagine that). Right now, a new toilet is making my heart sing. :)
    I am getting MDS with my SU order- I can't wait to play with it! Will you come give me a tutorial? Hope you're able to squeeze in some time to keep tinkering your creative space!

  2. Oh! And I forgot to say that I LOVE your new header!!!!
