About a month ago I was going through my room because I was starting to organize the items that I'd need to take/throw out once I'd move to Savannah (I just arrived yesterday!). Then I thought that it would be fun to show you all what my room looks like, since so much of my time has been spent in this space. I'm always either sewing, editing photos, or working on some kind of project in here.
When I was in the 3rd grade I made the decision that my room HAD to be lime green. If you walk into my house, even though my my bedroom is the last one down a long hallway, you will know it is my room! It's easily one of the first things your eyes will go to, because the green walls casts this alien glow into the hallway whenever my door is open. It's a wonderful thing.
My room is really more of a work studio than a bedroom. Yes I slept there, but I even moved my bed into my closet so that I could have more space. I did this shortly after I first started sewing in the 7th grade. At first my sewing machine was in my closet. I had a little desk set up, but even then, I needed more floor space to pattern draft. That was when I made the best decision I ever made, and moved my mattress into my closet. The bed frame was too big to fit into that space so my bed is actually my mattress on top of several plastic storage tubs. It's not the best for back support, but at least I was able to sew!

Over the years my room became a place where I've loved to create and most of my days were spent in there working. Right now I'm in
and I've been slowly collecting items for my new room while also waiting for my
items from home to come in through the mail. Those boxes should be arriving in
the next few days. A few of the boxes are my sewing supplies and fabrics, which I can't wait
to test out on my new sewing machine (it's a beaut)! I'm excited for the
possibilities of my new room, but I'm also going to miss my old space -
including the alien, green glow! Savannah
Have you posted any photos anywhere of your room or studio? If so, comment with a link! I always love looking at photos of how people decorate their personal space!
