Turtle's Cove




 
Well I am making a new craft space for myself using my Mom's dining room furniture.  This room used to be my dining room, but 18 months ago my Mom moved in with us.  We moved our dining room furniture into the kitchen to make room for her hospital bed. Since we no longer need the space for her hospital bed  we decided to make this room my new scrap area.

 We have enjoyed having our dining room furniture in the kitchen and the style worked perfectly.  Now that we no longer have a hospital bed we decided to move Momma's dining room set into the space and make it a craft room for me.  I have been working from a small corner in the living room and I am now in awe of how much additional space I will have.  I bet it won't take me long to fill it up.  My DSIL said the new furniture would NEVER hold all of my stuff.  He underestimates the resourcefulness of this crafter.  There is nothing a crafter can't do to make room for their treasures!

I haven't played in Sassy Cheryls' Show Me Thursday Challenge in a long time, so I am looking forward to posting the initial pictures  of Turtle's Cove.  Jeni and I already have a Coffee and Pastries Craft day booked for September.  Jeni, Kim, Jan and I will definitely give it a proper christening!

  9. All I can say, is that you're going to wonder how you got all that crafting gear to fit in one small corner with all this space. I love that you're using her furniture, as you'll have a constant memory of her. A very HAPPY Place for you.

    I can't think of anyone more deserving of the space.
