Designing Creations

Admin during the day, student in the evening, and a procrastinating sewer/designer the rest of the time.

Moving back to blogger!

I don’t like wordpress and after too much annoyance I had to create a new blog with blogger

so here this the link http://justwhatshealwaysdoes.blogspot.com/

A lookbook… cause that’s all the time that i have to do is just LOOK

I’m being lazy because they are many more that I would love to post.  School has completely consumed me!  I just wish I could see the end in my future.

I know I should be ashamed! it’s been a long while….

Nothing and a lot has happened since my last post earlier this year.  As i posted back in April I wanted to have my room redone.  We started the renovation of the room by packing and moving furniture.

Here is a picture of  the room once it emptied out, the site of a photo before it was emptied out would have been too horrifying, lol!

As you can see from the photos above, the walls are gray with a yellow stripe going across the top (not my idea).  This was my husband’s office and i just moved right in without doing any painting of any kind.

 

Now here are picture after we’ve painted the walls, taken down the blinds and pulled the carpet.  The floor still has the padding on it from under the carpet.  Also you can see that I’ve painted the bay window area.

This last photo is the flooring down.  At the time of this photo Hubby was 99% done and I was just so excited that I had to take a photo right away.

So hopefully the shelving will be going up this weekend and i can get started unpacking and also getting Hubby started on the next project which will be building my table.
I’ll post the ideas that I have narrowed down.

Hope to see you soon!

Blog Anniversary

On yesterday there were two special things that happened.  Mother’s Day and the third anniversary of my blog.

Had a great Mother’s Day.  Just extremely tired from the busy weekend and got to a long time childhood friend.

Not going as strong as I would like but cheers to a better year!

Shelving

One of the biggest reasons I can’t keep a clean room is because I need shelving.  I’m very happy to say that I’m getting an estimate this coming Thursday to get an idea of how much this will cost me if I have it professionally done, or do it myself.

I don’t know exactly what it’s called that i want.  I do know what i want and how i want it to look.  I’ve been looking at tons of pictures and i do plan to have some ideas ready when he comes. I know what I DON’T want it to look like!

here’s a couple of ideas:

The main idea is the type of shelving that I’m looking for. Hopefully with these pics and a few more he can see my vision

A dress a day….

Now that doesn’t sound like a bad idea at all…

I’m giddy right now because I can feel the sewing gods lurking over my head telling me what do with my week, sewing related of course! lol!

I just have to be mindful of how i listen.

Still Daydreaming

I thought that i would have been able to sew something this weekend but exercising can really take a lot of out of your.  Hubby and I walked 4 miles Saturday morning and I was beat down the rest of the weekend.

Now I’m just daydreaming over my favs from the new Burdastyle May 2011 issue. They have a few things that have struck my interest.  Right now i’m all about: quick, simple, and cute fashions

I’ve chosen about six different styles that i love right now

daydreaming….

A few things in mind that I’d like to sew sometime soon.  I should make a plan but I do have others goals that are much bigger so right now I’m day dreaming….

The first photo is from Burdastyle April 2011 #132

The next photo is also from Burdastyle April 2011 #123 for the skirt and #122 for the blouse.

I love both pieces, don’t like the shoes in the photo but hey who says she does either, lol!

This outfit is from Burdaystyle March 2011.  The shirt is #138 and the skirt #144.

I want to sew SO bad!

I have a long list of things that I want to sew especially for the upcoming warm weather.
I also have a long list of things that need to be done to my room as well.  I would love to have shelves put up, the room painted and etc.  Where is the time for all that?

Anywhoo!  I want to make something this week because I feel as though my load at school is light right now.
