Latest Projects

About 3 months ago, I left a great job working with fabulous folks to focus on home a little more.  Aside from getting to spend a lot more (much needed) quality time with my favorite little dude, I've gotten to take care of some nagging projects around the house.  Several rooms have been painted, I finished my first cross stitch pattern in about 10 years, and finally got around to building a craft/sewing table.  Now I just need to learn to use my sewing machine.

The inspiration for the craft table came from For Me, For You.  I ordered the legs on Ebay and purchased the large block of wood from a local home improvement store - they cut it to 5' x 3' for me.  I just had to stain it and attach the legs.  Because I'm on the shorter side and I like to sit up high to my table, this table is actually pretty low.   This allows me to sit up high without having to move my chair up so high that my feet don't touch the ground.

Loving this new table.  Very easy project, and I love that it is imperfect.  Will be great for sewing, wrapping, and other crafts.
I don't really like elephants.  But I thought this guy was too cute.
