It’s finally here!!! part 1

Well it’s finally here!!!  The post you all have been waiting to read is finally here!  Our new craft studio is finally ready for some crafting magic!

Let’s start with the reminder of what it was before the transformation.

First we had to clean the walls and repair any holes left from taking nails out of the wall.

Update to Craft Studio!

So, I wanted to give you all an update to my craft studio situation.  It has been moving really slowly unfortunately.  It was not due to any specific reason, just life getting in the way of our plans. Before we moved into our house, we had to move my mother-in-law’s stuff into her new home.  We had the craft studio emptied and it just needed a good cleaning and vacuuming.  Now that we have moved in to the house, it is now the catch-all room for boxes.  This is how it looks now:

Yes, we will haven’t unpacked everything.  Here are some more pictures of the other side of the room.

And my computer desk looks like this:

Since these pictures were taken, we have emptied all of the kitchen boxes and they have been taken out of the craft studio and its a little bit more empty.  We haven’t done any more because for the longest time, about a month or so, we have been looking for the bolts that we use to put our bed together.  They were last seen in the craft room but have been missing for a while.  We have the headboard, footboard, and the supporting boards (its from Ikea) in the craft room.  Just today, we found the bolts for the bed so now my husband will be able to take out the headboard, footboard and the supporting boards and put our bed together in our bedroom and we will be able to start painting in the craft room.

So that is the update for now.  Thank you all for reading and following along.  I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Welcome!

Welcome to my blog, One Creative Mom!
 
I am a working mother who loves to create works of art.  Well, works of art in my eyes.  I don’t consider myself a professional artist, but I love how I get into a zone when I am creating things.  You know that “zone”, where you block out everything and the next thing you know, you have artwork sitting in front of you that you created!!  I love that feeling!!!
 
I had an original blog called “One Crafty Mom” on blogger but decided to move that here and give the blog an update.  You can still see my old posts on the old blog here.  I will be posting all of my crafting items here.  This will range from scrapbooking, stamping, cardmaking, ect. 
 
Currently on my plate of things to do is my sisters wedding invitations for November 2011, wedding invitations for a couple of good friends of mine for March 2012, and I will be the wedding coordinator for my neice’s wedding this coming Saturday!  Although I’m not crafting anything for my neices wedding, she is just using my leadership/organizational skills to get things done on the day of the wedding.  Because I love weddings, I will be posting pictures from her’s with her permission of course.
 
I hope you like the new blog.  Please subscribe so that you can get e-mail updates of any new posts I make.  If you also have any questions, please feel free to e-mail me at tricia520@gmail.com or leave a comment.  All emails and comments are read my me!
