I have had a superb weekend. I hope you all have, as well!
Mine has consisted of Mona Lisa Smile, five episodes of How I Met Your Mother, The Predator, and four episodes of Boy Meets World. Oh and sleeping in until 10! That was all on Saturday.
Today (Sunday) has been a little bit more active. We went to the early service at church, (we are loving our church more and more), and met Sarah, Josh and little baby Brooklyn for lunch at Dickey's. So now Dusty has gotten to meet the little princess, and was able to get his baby fix :)
It was an afternoon nap kind of day, so I definitely got a few hours in, and am enjoying some pajama-clad craft time with a latte in my hand. Our espresso machine is most treasured, as the weather turns cooler.
Dusty is enjoying his homework (well, he's doing it, anyway) and so I wanted to give you a tour of my in-the-middle-of-a-project craft space. It's gloriously messy, yet perfectly ordered according to what I am doing. It's the first time ever I've had a specific place for my craft stuff, all to myself. And I'm lovin it! I'm not gonna lie, someday, it would be awesome to have a craft studio. A whole room. Or maybe, half library, half craft studio.
Daydreaming aside, here in the present, my desk and chair were cheap and are simple, but perfect. We also found the little white wall cubes on sales at Target, and they've been great to add some depth to the wall space. It's small and cluttered, but I suppose that's how I like it best. :)
I don't think I'm ever not in the mood to craft. I sit down at this desk just about every day, and it never fails to put me in a better mood. It's relaxing, and I'm always so thrilled when something I have in my head comes out even better than I thought it would. It has been a really great outlet for me. I'm constantly learning more and more about what I want to make, and how I want my things to look. I hope I can continue to do this for a very long time.
The creative process is a time consuming one, but it's worth it. I even enjoy photographing my finished products, to post online. I think moving here has given me many gifts that I'm just now beginning to figure out. But having this time is priceless.
I hope you all are enjoying this lovely October. Wherever you are. We still have to decide what we're going to do for Halloween - we have decided to be a part of the Harvest Festival at our church, on Oct. 30th. So we're pretty excited about that! We've also decided that we are not going to be one of those couples that dresses up their cat. No, no. But I am going to bake some butterscotch oatmeal cookies for the auction at church. Look at me, all domesticated! :)
Love and miss you all,
