I'm finally starting to organize my studio... little by little...
and I'm so excited about it!
I've always wanted a sewing nook... where everything could stay out and be
ready when the urge hit or the need arose. I now have it... oh so sweet!
So my serger is ready to serge... (as soon as I find the cord)...
... and my sewing machine has already been sewing... yessirreee...
I hemmed up some jammies for a friend just a few of days ago!
So here's what happens when you're disorganized and can't find the color of
thread you want in the moment... you go buy more... and then it happens
again... and again. Will I ever use that much red & yellow thread? Hope so!
Oh my... do any of you remember the day of the duster?
Or a 35¢ pattern!?!?!?
I'm not finished organizing yet but I thought this was pretty clever...
the small metal dishes are vintage jello molds... and the little bucket is
super cheap from IKEA... loving it!
And who doesn't love colored ball-head straight pins? I do! Cheerful and fun.
And this little pincushion has elastic to fit on your wrist... so helpful!
I got this adorable table from my daughter. I should have taken a before
photo though. Where the buttery yellow is on the top it was purple and
the legs were blue and white striped... very cute... but just a bit
too multi-colorful for my style and studio!
Don't worry... she understands... and didn't mind at all!
Okay... so do you see what is wrong with this picture?
Yes... the stools I got are too tall for the table! I thought about just
cutting them off but I need them to be that height for my art table.
So... I'm looking forward to finding new chairs at the second hand store...
I know I'll find them and they'll be just perfect!
I believe God is calling me to get organized... in my studio, my house,
my paperwork, my daily routines, even my thought-life.
He's been impressing on me that being more organized will result in much
greater freedom... freedom to grow in my relationship with Him,
freedom to be more creative, to grow my business, and give myself away.
Yes Lord... that's my heart and my desire.
How about you?
Heavenly Father... I understand that greater freedom and creativity flows
from a sense of order rather than chaos and so I do desire more order and
organization in my chaotic life! I want to be all that You're calling me to be,
but I know I can't do it without You. I trust You to give me the wisdom and
direction I need for today to accomplish Your will in me and through me.
