Dior’s Room Update and Other Things…

Hey!

So we are in the process of getting Dior’s room painted today, YAY!!  I don’t have pictures yet, but they will be on the blog next week.  Tonight I will put her crib/toddler bed together and that will help me decide where everything else will go.  I still need to purchase the wardrobe and rug, but that will be sometime next week.  I am hoping to put a lot of time into this room in the next two weeks so that I can move on to another great project that I have planned.  I can’t wait to share that project with you guys, it is HOT!!! Anyway, here is a reminder of Dior’s mood-board…

I wanted to talk a little bit about me and things that I love.  There are some things I have that I consider precious, besides my family and my photos, my SEWING MACHINE and POWER TOOLS.  If I had more money I would own a studio in a warehouse building where I would setup a sewing studio and a wood-shop or better yet a SHE SHED!  Right now, my back porch is my wood-shop and since our bedroom is in the basement I have a small space for my sewing studio.  These spaces puts limits on when I use my sewing machine and my “wood-shop”.  It’s too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter for the “wood-shop”.  There is not enough natural lighting in the basement for me to get inspired to sew.  I need to be inspired…Check out the inspirations below…

Since I am limited with my hobbies, I live vicariously through others, LOL!  Jen Woodhouse from House of Wood is one of the people I live through.  Here blog is wonderful!  I love the wood plans that she has on the blog.

If you know me and follow me you know that wood cut names are close to my heart because I have done a few and am doing one for Dior.  I have a list of blogs that I read DAILY and Jen Woodhouse is definitely on that list.  Check her blog out, especially if you are a DIYer!!

Make sure you come back next week to see the progress of Dior’s room!
