Spreading out my stuff

One of the most exciting things about our new house is contemplating being able to spread out. 

 We really don't have a lot of  "stuff"....not like a lot of people do.  I think it really looks like more stuff because it's all so compacted.

Everyone knows Hubby has a lot of stuff.....but seriously, all his stuff has been compacted into a tiny 8'x10' room.   Can any of you say that you could fit all your stuff in a room that size?   I'm talking ALL your stuff.  

I don't have a lot of stuff right now simply because there's been no place to put it.  I don't have a room like Hubby does.  I have a closet, which houses all my clothes.   And a few drawers or cupboards.   But no real space.

So I kind of gave up sewing cause I had a table-top machine that was too much trouble to drag out and set up on the kitchen table every time I wanted to sew.

And I kind of gave up scrapbooking for the same reason.

In the new house, I'm going to have a room ALL to myself.   I can set up a table and leave my sewing machine out.  I can get some scrapbooking supplies and organize places to keep them.  

I hope having some room to spread out encourages me to get back into the projects I used to love.

I am excited for you, to have some space of your own. I think it is important to have the space we need to do things we enjoy..like sewing and scrapbooking!

I am feeling the same way right now. Can't wait to have a spare room to start sewing again. Hubby already offered to by me a drafting/drawing table. Can't wait!

Looking forward to seeing your new place! Fingers and toes crossed!
