Craft spree at the local thrift stores

We went out yesterday and spent the whole day exploring the local thrift stores for what treasures could be found and here is what I brought home with me.

{the trick here is now to figure out how to store these so I can still see them or I'll forget what I have}
{no, there is no baby on the way but I couldn't help myself, I've never seen the lorax on baby clothes before so I had to get it.}

{by the bye I spent less twenty bucks on of this}

It was such a good day and I have so many plans roiling around in my head for what to do with my new goodies. First things first though my desk space is not nearly as functional as I was hoping so I'm going to design a new one that I will (hopefully) build myself.

After that, I plan on re working my patterns into something a little more ascetically pleasing and I will be releasing some of my first ever embroidery patterns in February, so stay tuned!

My new space and some more little critters

So things are settling down a bit here, and I thought I'd take a minute to show you my new (very tiny) craft space :) It's not finished yet but it's perfectly functional.I plan on making pockets for the curtain/divider and making curtains for the window. There are also a few things I need to hang on the wall, plus I really want to make myself a small braided rug for the area.

And I started some seeds that I will plant outside my window when it gets warm, along with my pretty new hummingbird feeder. :) I'm so excited for spring XD

The big one is a girl, her name is Ditchwater and the little one is Thorn. If you look closely Ditchwater has her legs on the shrimp, she won't eat it but she won't let Thorn have it so he pouts. :)

Utter Chaos

I'm a little late but if you saw my house right now you'd understand. My mother-in-law-to-be moved out a month earlier than expected and left behind an entire house full of furniture for us to deal with. In some cases it worked out in our benefit (i.e. the couch) but we have so much stuff that moving anything is a huge task!

enough of my whining, here are my goodies

Oh and meet our new fishy friends, Goldie, Rainbows, and Scrambles the Deathdealer...all named by my darling son

Domestic Bliss

Joy of Joys! in a few short days we will be inhabiting our very own (rented) three bedroom home all by ourselves :)...mostly, we'll have a roommate but that's okay because we longer have to live with parents!! SO many exciting things on the horizon, we'll be starting a cleaning company with a running start and that has prompted me be more organized in my personal life and with my Etsy Business. I've even made lists and done regular housework, I find that knowing it's mine has helped to motivate me in keeping the laundry and dishes done. :)

Well I'm off to play housewife a bit more but comeback tomorrow and I'll show you the goodies my fiance brought me home today.
