Purging of the Quilters side of the studio has begun

OK so last night I started purging my quilters fabrics side of the studio, put the pics on facebook and am selling at rediculous prices.

Today I will finish with the Fabric and then go to the scrapbooking side. Watch my facebook photo album for all the deals!

And so goes the moving of the studio.....and now a garage sale for Fabric!

Moving Moving Moving, keep those fabrics Moving, RAWHIDE

OK EVERYONE, we've begun the great move. Teenagers in my house run in fear every night when i arrive home from my REAL JOB. They know each night we move another piece of furniture or stash of fabric from the 2nd floor of the house to the new Studio in the basement. Gosh I feel like a kid at Christmas.

I've come to realize that my Fabric Hoarding is a wee (way big overstatement) bit out of control. So I will have a garage sale soon!

New tables are now set up for my sewing station, and others are set up for my Scrapbooking area. Storage units have been put up, but alas, I will need more of those.

Ikea will be happy to see me this weekend, I need at least 4 Billy Bookcases for all the cottons and maybe 2 for the flannels. I was lucky to buy paper racks from a friend so my scrapbooking papers will be safe and visible and not hidden for life anymore.

I bought some artwork for the walls for inspiration, received some great mini quilts from friends for the walls and bought a new Iron. This is soo much fun, but I am really missing my 1/2 hour each night of "playtime".

And for those asking? YES I took a BEFORE picture and will take AFTER pictures for everyone to peek at!

Until next time....

Rhonda, running with Scissors and lovin' it!

This is what was in the space son's Pirates of the Carribean BED and his dresser!

New Studio Toys!!!!

OK Folks, for those of you who "watch" me on Facebook, you know I am designing a new studio JUST FOR ME!!!!

OK, so I am not very excited about it (insert hysterical giggling here)...But this is an amazing adventure. This weekend the oldest son vacates the space which will soon be converted into my Studio...I suppose I should think of a great Studio name now?!

Upon him vacating, I will get to design, build and construct my ultimate crafting studio for my favourite passions of scrapbooking, quilting and a wee little bit of "everything else". I need advise, I need ideas, I need some "oh gosh don't do that's" and I need you ALL.

I will post my progress (thanks Trish for the great idea) and let you take the journey with me. Ki told me "go big or go home" so that will be my new motto...Perhaps I should print that out of my Cricut on vinyl and put it up on my wall!

Here is the first item that I purposefully bought just for my new studio!

Well, what do you think of my first Purchase...oh yeah, by the way, I will be keeping a tally of costs, so that you my friends, will be able to see what you could/couldn't and definately would/wouldn't spend your hard earned money on.
