Dear Craft/Sewing Room,
We really had some good times. All of the costumes, the mending, the altering, the quilt finishing and the hemming. Not to mention the little projects like hot gluing, floral arranging, gift wrapping etc... Remember the day I brought home my new sewing machine that I ordered from HSN! That was an awesome day. Those were some great memories, I'm so glad I got to share them with you.
I want you to know that for the time that I had you up until now, you were a dream come true. I never thought I would have my own special room, just for me and my hobbies. But, alas, it's time to move on. I want you to know that you did nothing wrong. You were there for me for every project. Especially those ones that went on forever, you know those ones that kept us up until all hours of the night because my perfectionism would kick in. You would listen to my music for hours and hours and listen to me sing along. I appreciate how you never complained about how messy I left you or gave me a guilt trip when you hadn't seen me for awhile. You totally accepted me for me. I will treasure your memory always, but it's time to let you go.
You see it's time for me to get ready for a baby. He will be joining our family someday hopefully in the near future. And you know how I am about being prepared and organized so I have to get ready now. I know you will love your new look as a nursery. I went to great lengths to find just the right bedding and colors.
I hope you will enjoy your new life as the designated home for our precious little one. I know you will miss the old music but the new stuff is soft and sweet, I know it will grow on you. I know you will feel empty for awhile, but just wait, you will be full of the greatest noises ever known, a baby cooing and yes some crying from time to time, but his giggles will make you all warm and fuzzy. The smell might get kinda nasty but I will do my best to keep a fresh wall flower going and I am really good at getting those stinky diapers out of the house right away.
Here are some pictures to remember you by...
That was then...
This is now.
Remember when I organized all those bins!
And I know how hard it will be to not share the same space with the beloved "Leg Lamp". Don't worry she found a new home in the theater room.
That empty closet will soon be full of baby clothes!
See how darling you are all up close and personal!
So I hope you enjoy this new season of your life. I will miss you, maybe someday our paths will cross again...like in twenty years.
With Much Love,
