My ORGANIZED sewing room.

It was a bit overwhelming at first. Right here it looks like my cabinet threw up!

But then I took a trip to ikea and got some good deals! I installed this red plastic bin to the door of my cabinet...pretty cool huh? I didn't want any wasted space in this thing. Oh and these red bins came in a set of 5 with the hanging hardware for $5bucks! not too bad.

Then Bed Bath and Beyond had these stacking bins on sale for $4.99. I just need to put some
 cute labels on them.


Then I got this rail from IkEA for $1.99 and the clips came in a package for .99cents!
What a great deal huh?

And I love these bins...just not sure what I'm going to put in them.
Each bucket is .99cents at ikea and they can even hang in a drawer or they have the option of hanging directly on the wall.


And I just have to show you how much I love this set up. This portion pulls out (for a keyboard) so I have a mini iron board set up. Then where the pens are suppose to be I have all my sewing tools like my seam ripper, scissors, rulers, etc.  How convenient huh? I think it's even better than a sewing table.  (although I've never even checked out the specifics of a sewing table so I really don't know)

And then I finally hung up a quilt. Can you believe of all the quilts I have finished I never displayed one of 'em?  I actually want to make a couple mini ones as well. (I actually have one in the works right now)  But anywho...this is what I have been doing all weekend.

Get a Hobby!

Hobbies help you improve your mental health and well being because  you're engaging the creative network in your brain, you are challenging you mind and keeping it sharp. Its also a stress reduction. When you concentrate on your hobby it is clearing your mind of other distractions. It makes you happy! It makes you interesting! If you are married its important to have other things, separate things that make you happy.  Don't rely on your spouse to make you happy. You both need to find happiness in the things that you enjoy and since happiness is contagious it will rub off on your spouse. You also need to give your spouse space so they can enjoy things they love to do, its important to keep your identity in a marriage! You can still "find yourself" while being married. (I've been married over 20 years) You don't need to rely on people to make you happy! People will let you down, they have there own obligations they have to tend to so if you a

This is a must have in the summer heat I had a summer baby, born in July!  And I wanted her to have privacy when out in public but there was no way I was going to drape a blanket over her so as a sewer I came up with a solution! Moms are problem solvers!

Your First Sewing Machine!

2020 has been a great year for sewing machine sales! Joanne's can't seem to keep them in stock. People making masks as well as others picking up new hobbies due to quarantine and with Christmas around the corner this might even be on your list! So are you looking to buy a sewing machine? If you are in the market for a new Sewing machine you might be a bit perplexed with all the different features. In fact sewing machines range from $100 up to..well there are some in the $12,000 range! So I'm going to keep it simple and share 3 key features to look for in your sewing machine investment. 1. Needle up/down feature : This means when you are sewing a project and you stop you can indicate that you want the needle down into the project so your fabric stays in place when you need to pivot or make adjustments to the fabric. 2. Automatic needle threader : this saves time (and frustration) by threading the needle for you. 3. Needle position right to left: This allows you to stitch
