My first step into the world of crafting

I'm a craft blog junkie.  It's something that I've kept under wraps for a while, but I finally have decided to come clean.  For a long time, I've just looked and been in awe, but I finally want to branch out and start a little crafting of my own!

For now, I'm armed with simply a sewing machine, a bottle of Modge Podge, some scissors, a small container of straight pins, a few scraps of fabric, a very small selection of wood projects that need painting, a few acrylic paints, some paint brushes, and a few other odds and ends that I've collected over time.  Nothing even CLOSE to the craft rooms that so many of the blogging ladies that I've been reading have, but someday, I'd love to get something like it!

At the moment, the room that I plan to turn into my office/craft room is occupied by a family that needed some place to stay, but they'll be moving out in a few days, and at that point, the transformation of the room will begin!  I hope to photograph my way through the transformation so that I can share it on here!

Already, the room has gone through very big changes in that it used to be my "BLACK HOLE ROOM" where everything was shoved to hide it, but now it's an actual functioning room!  However, any changes I make to it can't be huge, since we're only in a rental.  I don't know how long we'll be here, but I don't want to make any lasting changes that might cause my landlady to have a fit.  (We never know with her...)

I'm looking forward to crafting and getting to know other crafters!!
