Hi all.... just wanted to say hello and give you a house update. So far things are progressing right along with the purchase of our new home. We don't have a firm closing date yet, but have been notified that it will be no later than mid-May. We are dealing with a bank, so it's kind of slow going.

We found a lovely young couple that want to rent our current home, so that is a load off our minds (and checkbook!). 

Here is a picture of the view from the backyard:

Gorgeous isn't it? I will be able to stand at my kitchen sink and see this view outside the window.

One of the best things about this new house is that I will have my very own room (with a door to keep the cats out!) dedicated to crafting and sewing. I will have to store all of my yarn and crochet projects in this room, as well as all of my fabric and other sewing items, so I want to make the best use of the space that I can.  Any tips or hints you can give me about organizing and/or decorating would be greatly appreciated.

Hope everyone has a great weekend.


  1. Sandy, how big is your room? That is awesome and the view is so nice. Lucky you!

  2. Congratulations Sandy!! What a view. It must be so peaceful there. And your own room, how wonderful. Bet you can't wait.

  3. Congrats Sandy. :)

    I would have to say lots of shelves and baskets.

  4. Congratulations! Wish I had some ideas about organization but my craft room is knick-named "yarn warehouse" but everything is piled up. :)

  5. Congrats on the new homestead. Looks like a fantastic view for you. I imagine there aren't too many people around either...wonderful.

    My only advice is keep the door closed! Hee.

  6. Wonderful news :)) and that view is incredable.. I would suggest plastic boxes and shelving for a craft room ..
    Have a great week end :))
