Sneak Peek

So here is a sneak peek at my 'craft room'.

Yeah, It's just a stool. I got it from the basement- since we moved we don't have the type of island that is used for seating/eating anymore. We left them all outside on the deck for a summer before taking them inside, so it's kinda beat up. I might sand it and then re-finish it but it might be more work than it's worth.

 While I was sorting through all my old crafting junk in my closet I found a circular braided/sewn 'rug' I started making when I was nine. I discovered that if I finished it it would be the size and shape needed to be a stool cover. I was going to crochet one anyway so this just save time. I worked all morning and finished it, but it doesn't exactly stay on (even with sewn in elastic) so just don't look at the bottom of the seat.... I tied it on. (sssshhhhhh!) Anyway, I'm trying to decide if it's too ugly to keep. It's kinda cool, and it is comfy, but I'm not sure if I like it. Comments??

A couple days ago I was browsing rebecca's blog and I came across her (only $75 DOLLAR!) craft room. Completely inspiring and AMAZING. Soooo, I am going to try to replicate her success. Problem is it's going to be in my.... (dumroll) ......closet. It's a good sized walk-in, yes, but not exactly what I'd imagined. We'll just see how it goes. I've been looking around ebay and craigslist all afternoon for (cheap) furniture like hers (as I don't even have $75). No luck yet, but I might try Goodwill tomorrow. Before pictures will be posted with the after pictures.

The Start

Hi all! 
I'm Nikki and I'm excited to start a blog to put all my craftiness (and the craftiness of others that I add my two cents to) together all in one spot. Sort of like an extension of my pinterest pin boards. (I am addicted to pinterest, so I hope I post on here nearly as often!) Wish me luck on the actual continuation part of a blog- so easy to start.. not so easy to keep up on. ;)
