I’ve been hard at work {in between everything else} packing up my sewing room. For nearly 9 years, I’ve had this studio space.

It has been a trickier project than I thought it would be. I have so much attachment to all my craft supplies, and yet, I’ve experienced a love/hate relationship with them for the past several months. Have you ever felt like you were drowning in too much “stuff”? That’s sort of the feeling. And it’s definitely contributed to my current creative slump.

And all those craft supplies that have been drowning me? I managed to get rid of some, but honestly I still need to get rid of about half. Seeing all of my supplies boxed up in the garage, makes me realize just how much my stash has grown into a hoard. No wonder it was getting hard to pull out any creativity. For now, I will take a mental break from the decision making and focus on fixing up my new creative corner in the basement. It’s smaller and will force me to continue downsizing the stash.

Stay tuned for more room makeover updates and sewing studio setup!
