Sew Darn Crafty Party...Week 20

Hello to all my wonderful friends out there in the world. Even though we've never met, I still consider you all my friends. We all go through the same things in life, we love to create, sew and craft and let's face...deep down we're pretty much all the same. If you're blogging or reading blogs, you love to be inspired and that's the basic truth of why we are "friends"...inspiration!

I feel like this opening paragraph each Sunday is to tell you what I've been up to this week. To make it short, my house looks like someone flipped it upside down. Remember I told you I want to switch out my daughter Courtney's twin bed for a queen, with some painting in there too? Well, my niece gave me a few pieces of furniture that she didn't want any more, (which I love, but just need to make room for) but that created a domino effect. Move something here to get something there, change this to fit that, why not clean this out since I'm here, why not clean out the closet and donate clothes.

This domino effect has reaked havoc on every single room in the house. EVERY. SINGLE. ROOM. We are stepping over piles of clothes, pieces of furniture, bags of I don't know what...but I LOVE IT. Gives me a sense of cleansing, getting rid of things we just don't need, minimizing my life. It may be upside down right now, but when it's done Woo Hoo!!

So now let's see what you've been up to...

Sew Darn Crafty is all about YOU!! Show off your projects, share a tutorial, show us your vacation pictures, share a family favorite recipe...share anything.

  1. Thanks for hosting, have a great Sunday!


  2. It is funny how you start cleaning one room and it just escalates! Thanks for the link party.

  3. Thank you for hostessing, enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  4. Once you're done you'll be so happy. Nothing like a good clean up, so very inspiring for new projects afterwards!

  5. Karen I tried to self-crop my image and had to do it twice. Sorry for the problem this caused. I love this idea. It is very inspiring.

  6. Thanks for the posting links! I agree with Connie about cleaning one room, I think it has something to do with organizing and putting things where they belong :D

  7. Thanks for hosting another great linky! That's how I clean / organise, always looks worse before it gets better!

  8. Isn't that funny! That is how I clean-up. Before you know it I am saying what am I doing in here? When I started in a whole other room!

  9. Hi Karen - just found your site and party. Thanks for the inspiration! I'm following now so that I can watch for good things to come! Linked up two repurposed projects for my little diva at #82 and 83. Hope you will stop over at Blue Velvet Chair sometime to have a look - my focus is on upcycled, recycled, repurposed, and reloved.


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment...I just love hearing from you!
