All of us mamas need our space now and again. A place where we can just sit, and be still. These times don’t seem to come often, but when they do arise it is so very nice to have a place to call our own.
Last week, my girls and I were completely worn out by the extreme heat, so we decided to spend an afternoon in the basement. Once we were in this nice, cool space for an extended period of time, we realized the place needed a little pick me up. We spent the afternoon organizing, all while Belle (aka Beauty) and her gang sang to us in the background. When we were finished I realized that maybe, just maybe, there was a way I could set up my sewing machine in the basement in a permanent space.
The girls and I got back to work and moved furniture around a bit, which they loved because we discovered lots of lost treasures hidden beneath couch cushions and tables. And we also realized there was, in fact, a bit of space available amongst the chaos for a tiny sewing nook.
I shared this idea with my mother and father-in-law and to my absolute surprise, three days later my father-in-law had built me an absolutely fabulous sewing table! He is one crafty guy I tell you. So I then went rummaging through my parents’ basement, found an old abandoned chair, painted it and now I have a cute little space to call my own.
I can’t wait to start my first project 🙂
