A progress picture as promised

So the kids were on spring break last week and I realized that was a bad time for me to try to get my room together and a video done during the day time. The kids went back to school today and it's already more quiet around the house.
Since I haven't had a chance to do a video of my room and it still needs more work, here's a sneak peek picture of my room so far. I want to call it an organized chaos but I will call it a semi organized chaos. :) It honestly looked a little better up until yesterday when I had to finish three projects at once and I managed to get my scrapbooking stuff spread out everywhere.
I will do my best to get it cleaned up and get a video out this week. I will also make sure that I do it in landscape mode instead of portrait mode like last time.  :)

Spring Break 2013

Yay, it's Spring Break!

April Fools!!!!

I'm a SAHM of three elementary school boys. Spring break now means a whole nother thing. Well, on the upside, I do get to sleep in past 7am. :)

My new craft room is coming along nicely. The wobbly bookshelf has been repaired, the boys' old dressers have been combined as a way to hold dolls and trims, and my dressform is set up and decked out in my GC apron and my Donna Downey Apronology Class apron..

I still have some shelves to hang, but am working around that for now. My sewing is still on hold for now, but I'm finally getting my sewing stuff unpacked. Most of my scrapbooking stuff is unpacked but the rest of the stuff is waiting for my hanging shelves. I have two sets of ATCs to work on (due the 7th and the 9th) and two sets of embellishments due on the 7th (I missed last month's swap). I also have a couple of card sets I want to do for our next Operation Write Home card drive next month. My LSS was closed for Good Friday, so I will be working my butt off at the Friday night crop there this week. Luckily most of what I take to crop stays packed up and ready to go, so I won't have to search for much before I head out the door.

For sewing, I have a set of Transformers curtains I want to make for my youngest son's room (I have had the fabric for at least a year and a half, maybe longer). I also have a custom Carvewright cover to make for my dad. After those, I have a list of doll sized things I want to work on, and Pinterest has been very inspiring. :) I also need to open the serger I got for Christmas and learn how to use it.

I intended to put up a video of how my craft room is doing today, but it's in a semi-organized chaos right now, and since it's late I won't have any natural light. I will get an updated video done and posted before the week is done.

Until next time!
