Sewing / Craft Room Update

I spent the Saturday of the blizzard rearranging and organizing my sewing / craft room. The room was set up in a way that just wasn't working for me. Now I can easily access the shelves again!

I finally figured out a floor plan that works. On Black Friday I saw a deal for a free Homepolish session so I bought it. This gave me an hour session with a designer who I facetimed with, Marcy Garcia. And by the way I never use facetime and hate being recorded, so I am pretty sure I was terrible at it. It was so great to get a fresh opinion on everything. She found me a lot of sofa beds that would have fit in this space. She also believed that the dark wooden trim at the top of the room should be painted white and I agree! I have been thinking that about the whole house ever since I first saw it. This is definitely in the future plans. As is getting new flooring.


Our winter had been incredibly mild, but winter just arrived in the form of a 2 foot blizzard.

Here is when it started, Friday night.

And Saturday morning we woke up this.

Happy New Year

Our New Year's Day was spent in Philly with the Mummers. It was a blast, as usual.

Day drinking and hanging out with dogs. This guys is Jackson, our friend Ben's dog.
