You can also your imput your stash, needles, photos of projects finished and in process, etc. And you can search for patterns and find many free patterns as well as buy patterns. Great site to spend time when you’re not writing.

Time to Reorganize/Redo

I’m trying to redo and reorganize my house. I’d love to redo our bedroom. My mother lives with us and we gave her the master bedroom and turned it into a small studio. That means my king-size bed is in a 10×10 room!  Here are some bed makeovers.


Have kids? Tight on space? Need guest room ideas?



My office is the family room converted and there is no door which means my office is a free-for-all for dogs and cats. At times, it would be nice to shut the door and lock the household out! This site is intriguing and I may want one of these! Let me rephrase that.
  I Want One!
