My Creative Space

Why is it that I always seem to spend my Thursdays cleaning?

I am cleaning again today, decluttering in preparation for selling this stone house.  It will be a shame, how often does one live in a 50's solid stone house?  But a family of five do not fit in a 2 bedroom house.

We were going through the shed last night and found so many things we had "stored" there that we just had no use for anymore.  Some of it was put on the side of the road to see if anyone wanted it.  It's gone already.

So today I will be putting things on the side of the road.  I have 2 change tables, 2 baby rockers and numerous other things.  I will be glad to have more space.

Perhaps I can move my sewing centre out to the shed like Eleesa from Dorothybills has.

I wonder if a studio would sell the house more than a shed.  It does have floating timber floors, a kitchen sink, shelving and plastered and insulated walls.  This is all because my brother-in-law and his wife Zjahlii (Wendy from The Textured Leaf's daughter), lived in our shed before they had kids in order to save some money.  We loved having them live with us and miss them very much now they have moved away.

Yep, that's it a new sewing studio!  And I can put a play corner in there for the kidlets, Hurley loves a change of scenery.  And the garage door can be opened on hot days to get some fresh air through and so as I can watch the kids ride their bikes.  It's all settled then.  I will be sure to take before and after photos.

So a day off from sewing bikinis today in order to be more productive in the future.

Okay here are some more photos of the things that I am so excited about at the moment....

Still so excited about finally finding my niche.  Until now I have pretty much just made things that I have seen around about blogland.  But these bathers I created from beginning to end and I am so excited.  I hope to have a few pairs in an etsy store by the end of next week.  And they may be making some market appearances over the summer.  Did I mention how excited I am???

Have you found your niche? That special thing you make that is all you?

Love the story about the shed. I did up a little room seperate from a rental house ( a real dump) and it seemed to get everyone's attention when the came through for inspection. One lady said it would definitely be her bedroom. lol. Great about finding your niche too. Then no one can ever accuse you of stealing their idea. Cherrie

I love the bathers. They're fabulous. I think I may have to have a bit of a go at them myself. My 4 year old daughter is obsessed with bikinis at the moment.

Gorgeous!! So glad you found something that is like you said - just you. They are really pretty. I don't think I have found my niche yet but here's hoping it's only round the corner! Gorgeous pics too.
