Occupy Success!!!

The beginning was more sorting, than anything else. Aye!

But I did manage to get some *secret* stuff cut up, and also whipped out some RED curtains for my son's room. I ended up buying a nice table cloth at K-mart 50% off for those... $7.50 for curtains is much more justifiable to me than the prices I was seeing out there. :o)

... And now the pictures have stopped loading, so stay tuned. I'm taking the kids to my high school alumni Christmas Choir concert tonight. I'm probably looking more forward to it than they are! :o)

Why not? Occupy Your Sewing Room!

It has been a tough 6 months in this household. After working 2 different jobs trying to find something that would blend with my special needs kiddo's needs, I have found that I am still not ready, or rather my family is not, for me to be back to work full time. Friday I turned in my tools and am now back to staying home until the next job opportunity comes along. (I found a help wanted ad for a new JoAnn's opening @25 miles from me, could be what I have been looking for!) Anywho... all my sewing, crafting and blogging came to a dead stop when I started working and now my lonely sewing machine is begging for some attention. Enter *Occupy Your Sewing Room* being hosted over at Cat Patches... What perfect timing for me! If you have followed the *Occupy* movement, this is a fun spin on that. So, this week I will be occupying my sewing space, creating some lovely handmade CHRISTmas pressies and enjoying the time I have so missed with my machine. Sign on and join in! I will be posting pics throughout the week to keep myself accountable. :o)
