I just started school (it's a Bachelor in Social Education) and I'm blown away by all the information they feed us. Not to mention all the activities they push down our throats to help us 'get to know each other' which means lots of salsa dancing, theater performed as an opera, rapping and singing! This might've been a whole lot more fun if I was 16 but I'm not... I can't wait to get started on the actual study part on Monday...anyways...our home is shaping up. We still need a bunch of organizing but for now it's very...hmm...livable?
I recently bought some new paint. See I've been using the kids poster paint and it is not good! The paintings I already made looks awful now...bah! I also got some new canvases and took a look at my Great Grandpas old paint box - isn't it marvelous? A lot of my ancestors have painted at some point in their lives and my Grandpas brother was living as an artist - I like that, I'm very intrigued, but I don't really need a new hobby, now do I?
(The "owl-Christmas-tree" print is made by Elisabeth - I SO, so love it! I will buy a black Ribba frame for it in IKEA and hang it on my wall - can hardly wait!)
This is a corner of my sons room. I love the furniture: The old dog-hair-cutting-table (yes we have 2 of them), the old chair that came along with the tables, the IKEA PS cabinet and the thrifted toys.This I found on the desk. The very white wall will (eventually) be covered, with the Garfield wallpaper I've had laying around since March!
For even longer, I've had this floral wallpaper laying around for my daughter. It won't go on this - very white - wall above, but in the opposite end of the room. She had Barbapapa above her headboard for a day, but since our walls are very rough, it wouldn't stick! I'll put it back up, when I get around to wallpapering. The bed used to be our sons and after a few coats of pink: It's super girly! At the end of her bed, she has a Pippi doll house. Gotta love Pippi.
We have lived in this house, for little over 3 years now and my craft room has moved around quite a bit. I started in this room, which is downstairs and served as our bedroom when we first moved in. When upstairs had a bedroom, the kids and shared the room downstairs, until they took over the entire room and I was left to find other solutions, around the house.
Now that we finally have our own space to sleep in and the kids have their own rooms upstairs, I have moved back into the first craft room I had, BUT I still have to share it! This time I share it with the whole Family's clothes, as we are planning for it to fit into our mudroom (in the making), later this year. Wouldn't it be nice to have all the clothes right next to the washer? And right next to the bathroom? I think so.....
So here are some corners of my craft room at the moment:
