Another Semester Down and Another Year starting

I had hoped to be able to post more in 2016 and in some ways I succeeded and other ways I did not. My first semester at Cal State San Marcos was even busier then I thought it would be. Besides having the 5 classes it was filled with taking extra tests, tutoring, CPR, and lots of other things. My two cats got sick and here it is the last day of 2016 and one of my cats is still sick, however, she does seem to be on the mend. I went to the East Coast and had a wonderful time there seeing my nephew and niece-in-law graduate and get married, met a friend for the first time in person, that was very special. My husband had surgery, so to say the least it has been a very busy year.

Even though there have been good and bad events scattered throughout the year, I have had some really wonderful things as well. For my start towards my bachelor's degree my husband redid my sewing room. We converted a bedroom to be used as my sewing room as originally I used the living room as we don't entertain all to often. However, I really wanted my room to be self contained so with some chopping down of my work table we moved it to the bedroom but it was just to cramped in there. So in August my husband stripped the room down and patched and painted the walls to a nice bright white, and he put in some built in shelves for me, mounted my t.v. and then made specific tables for each of my machines, including the computer and printer.
       This was my set up before
 Very crowded and messy
 this was my cutting table 
 my closet
 my design wall
 My new set up gives me a lot more space and storage

It took a little while to complete due to the fact that my husband also works full time and we had so 
much going on but it was finished in time for me to enjoy over my break between semesters. I will truly enjoy creating in here. He is also creating an organizer for my closet, that I will show you once it is all done and then we plan on getting one of those roll up design walls. Enjoy the remainder of this year, and I hope that next year brings peace and quiet for all.
