Step 1

Fall is finally here and after spending the last year tied up in my new job and helping organize the awesome CLIT Fest Chicago 2013, I’m finally ready to recommit myself to my creative life. The old blog was so out of date it was depressing, so I’ve decided to celebrate new beginnings with a new website, so welcome!

The first thing I did this summer once CLIT Fest was over was redecorate my old roommates bedroom. After he moved out last fall it became our own junkyard. Once something went in there chances of seeing it again were slim and unfortunately most of what ended up in there was hobby stuff, since it wasn’t being used.

After a few months of living roommate-free, Nick and I decided we could pull that off and we agreed to turn our spare room into our hobby room. I used Apartment Therapy’s August Style Cure as my guide and inspiration, since we began our project in August, as well. It took a lot of sorting and moving things around and our living room still hasn’t quite recovered from the piles of things that migrated there, while we redecorated, but, I now have a nice quiet place where I can sew and work on projects and Nick has a home for his hobby supplies and tools. It only took a couple of coats of paint and a few trips to the Container Store to make it feel organized and homey. I still have to hang artwork up on the walls, but having the room at my disposal at all times is making me feel inspired.

Here are a few pictures of the room sans artwork. I’ll post more once the room is done.
