Return to Creativity

Last year was a dismal year for my creative pursuits. I blame moving and a one year old... and my own propensity for laziness,choosing netflix over my sewing room. Since I included a craft room on the list of musts for the new house I suppose I better use it occasionally. Also, I ought to get sewing seeing how my son is one month away from his second birthday and his baby quilt is still a pattern and a stack of fat quarters.
Settling into this house has given me a couple opportunities for creative brilliance. My favorite is Owen's bathroom. With a little orange paint I was able to transform a hideous yet awesome mushroom embroidery into and awesome yet still a little hideous masterpiece. It really helped me embrace the "vintage" blue 70's bathroom, and now the upstairs bathroom is one of my favorite rooms in the house.
