Luckily, I won't have to sent out "Change of Address" cards

I've moved!

Well, not really. I've moved my office (which used to be in a spare bedroom) and sewing stuff (which used to be in my bedroom) and shipping area (which used to be my kitchen table) into our upstairs bonus room. This used to be my daughter's hang-out space, but she rarely used it, so I kicked her out. Don't feel too sorry for her, she got a kitten out of the deal.

Basically, this was my husband's idea. Although I'm quite certain that he only had my best interests at heart, he was really getting tired of all of my stuff. I laid down my terms. I needed my computer upstairs. I needed a TV. I needed assorted tables and such moved. He agreed. Happily. (I should have asked for a new laptop, too.)

Check it out!

Space! Neatness!

Something that closely resembles organization!

This was over three days worth of work. First, we had to get all of my daughter's stuff out. Then to get all of my stuff up here, and organized. Computer cables to hook up, shelves to move, fabric to sort, and fold, and fold, and fold.

There are pros and cons of the new arrangement.

Pro: It is upstairs, which means that I will get additional exercise. Go me!
Con: It is upstairs, which means that I have to drag myself up and down stairs to go to the bathroom. Which, since I drink an embarrassing amount of Diet Coke and tea, is often.

Pro: My computer is now in my workspace, and I can check my email and etsy more frequently.

Con: My computer is now in my workspace, and I can check my email and etsy more frequently.

Pro: My shipping table will be way more efficient, leaving my kitchen table for charming family dinners lovingly prepared by me.

Con: Who am I kidding? The newly cleared kitchen table will be the perfect place to try the new stencil technique I saw online.

And now for some gratuitous kitten pictures!

No completely adorable kittens were harmed in the making of this blog post.

I would love to have that workspace! I'm always having to set up somewhere, then break it down. That kitten is just too cute!

Congrats! I long long long for a studio and I know my husband longs for the dining room table and kitchen counter back. One day. For now, I'll just stare longingly at your photos. :-)
