a little tour

i know i haven't posted since june, but i've been meaning to, 
and i plan on posting more frequently in the future :) 
in honor of my return to blogging & sewing, i thought i'd share with you the place where it all happens!

here's an overview.

this is my knick-knack shelf. it has decorative things, but also hold jars of buttons and clothespin that i use.

this is the shelf on the left of the room. 
the giant key is from a wind up doll costume i made a couple of years ago. maybe one day i'll blog it :)

i like to put my thread in color groups rather than straight-up organize it. i think it looks more interesting!

the wooden organizer used to hold figurines on the wall of my childhood room. i removed the glass doors and decorative top piece, and now it holds things like pins, buttons, and other notions.

the tall dresser is filled entirely with fabric. here's a peek inside!

i have a chalkboard wall which i probably should have cleaned off before taking these pictures...instead you can see the weird night that my friends & i traced each other and drew cats.

in the opposite corner i keep my craft and sewing books, and some scrapbook paper too.

the other dresser has more scrapbook paper, a box filled with bits of lace, two huge spools of lace, and the organizers that hold my school things.

i sew on a small conference table i bought at ikea. it has adjustable legs and i made it tall enough that it is comfortable to cut fabric while standing. there's extra stools for projects with friends :) bonus- since it's a conference table it has a box that holds a power strip, so no cords on the table.

here's some neat vintage patterns on my bulletin board!

and this is where the magic happens :P

think i went a bit overboard with my color scheme? haha

that's all!
