I have been lost…. In my own office April 22, 2012

See I just knew I should be more consistant on blogging, and I have no good excuse.  I have been burried in my sewing room for the last few months and look what happend !

This is the view to the left of the door, boxes of fabric ( Ok so I have a little fabric addiction)

This is where my incoming orders are kept – Ok Now I am embarrassed!

As you can see the space is very Small 6′ x 8′ but I am certain I can even move my office in here.  I am in desperate need of just a space for work.  When you work from home it can be extremely difficult to seperate the two (at least that is my problem)  But no more complaints……. over the next week I will take a look at some inspirational ideas and you can take a look at my progress!

Thanks for reading:)

It is so easy to get caught up in Spring Cleaning and once the floors have been scrubbed take a look at at the shine and think all done!  But wait we can spruce up for spring just a little more!  Step 2 for More Spring Color is a Swap Your Rugs!

Wonderfully cozy area rugs look just right in winter. But when the temperature rises it may be time to roll them up and replace them for summer with sisal or cotton rugs in light, cool colors. (Summer is also be a good time to have heavy rugs cleaned or repaired.)

Great cotton rugs and make such a huge difference.  There is a great selection of rugs here.
