New space

This week I have been working on a few projects.  Alexandra being married leaves us an empty room.  Though I miss her being here, an empty room is like winning the lottery for a big family.  We can always use more space.

For the past two months her room has sat just as she left it.  Poppa started encouraging me a few weeks ago to do something with it but the thought of moving her out (really just her stuff) was too much for me.  One day last week he told me that I was not getting rid of her, just her stuff and he gently reminded me that she has her own home and is not coming back.  That was the affirmation my heart needed to hear.  I was not getting rid of my girl, just her stuff!

Originally all of our girls were in one room and the boys in the other.  Our home has four bedrooms and a biggish loft.  Big because it is the size of my master bedroom.  The loft was my creative space and the fourth bedroom was and is Poppa’s office.  When Alexandra got to a certain age we moved my stuff from my beautiful loft to the garage to give her, her own room and the boys room was moved to the loft.  It all worked out fine except for me being relegated to the garage.

This room is now my favorite part of the house.  All of my favorite things to do are here minus the TV which I have a love hate relationship with (I hate TV but love a few shows like Downton Abbey and Alaska, The last Frontier).  It still needs some pictures up, a table cloth and a card table for the middle with chairs would be great but for now here is what we have.

The shelf was super duper easy to make.  Just 6 craft crates and 6 six foot long 2×12 wood planks. We stained them and screwed everything together in about 15 minutes.

This room has always been called the loft because that is what it is but I have heard the kids calling it “the lounge” which I think is hilarious.  The seem to love having a place to hang out.  Speaking of hanging out, I’m hanging out at Nicole’s today, pop on over to see what everyone is crafting.

I’ll be back here tomorrow to share my crocheted Saint Lucia/Advent/Christmas Wreath pattern.  Its really cool so I hope you will come back to see it.
