A Courageous Start!





I have been trying to organize my Guest/Sewing room for several months now...and its been a VERY slow process.. The room intimidates me..taunts me....scares me to be perfectly honest.....I try ..I really do...to come in and sort thru the fabrics, items for my shop..things that need to be transformed into the image that ran thru my mind..the moment I saw it and "had to have it"..( there are alot of these )..and anything else I hide there..until I have time...
What makes it so hard to organize...is that I do not have enough storage in this room and my walk in closet needed to be purged first to make room for these items that i do want to keep and be able to "find" ..( sound familiar?? ..I hope I am not the only one!!! )....SO I end up closing the door to this room...alot and talk talk talk about what I plan to do there...WELL.... since we have had some rainy weather here...I am happy to say I actually made a small dent.! It is still a long ways to go but I am feeling good at my courageous start!.Check out Patti's Artful Design and see how she organized her space! ..I decided to go ahead and post my progress! I can't wait until I can actually go in sit at my table and be able to work in a peaceful creative environment! Have you organized any new spaces in your house lately??? Doesn't it feel good to start???

how beautiful, marlene! truly beautiful! so peaceful! rachel ashwwell will be calling you soon to come work for her! just gorgeous, lady! and dear dear, i so know what you mean about rooms - and trying to "start" - and then, the "starting" - does work wonders for the soul, just the process -

oh, and all that white! i've been snowed in for days here, literally!!! more coming tomorrow - plows just came an hour ago - we've been unable to leave our driveway since friday! and was without cable and internet and house phones - but managed to keep power unlike many others - just suffering cabin fever a bit at this point! but managed to read a lot - not very creative otherwise as house filled with so many distractions -

come by when you can and leave me a note - till then - jenean

Fabulous, dahling! It's so pretty and a completely new room. Congratulations for putting on your big girl panties and not letting the room intimidate you anymore!!!!

I love how it is coming out. I jknow exactly how you feel about hesitating re-doing a room. I am reorganizing my laundry room which is right off of my kitchen. It is also where I put things until I decide to do something with them. I finally started, again and now my kitchen is a mess:) I need to purge, I guess. Good luck with your room. If my comes out 1/2 as nice as your I will be happy:)

Trishia said...

LOVE all that white! And I'm thoroughly jealous of how organized it looks....

Okay, listen to me VERY closely...I have a plan.
Just go away for the day and I'll come over. I will take everything of your (beautiful) room and get it all out of your way for you okay? Seriously, being the sweet friend I am, I'll do all the work and just get it all out of your hair. You'll come home to a re-organized (empty) room and I think that will do the trick.
Sounds good to you?
;)
just kidding...but I would love come and play in there...it's so pretty!!!!
everything vintage

ps....you go waaaaay to long without posting girl...I miss you!

The guest bedroom is gorgeous and I like the placement of the bed. You have so much space even with you work table to make your purses.
The jars add a special touch. Job well done...
