This is ... My Creation

Betty the Geek suggested this weeks "this is..." (hosted at Three Buttons). I could have used the opportunity to shamelessly hawk my wares, but the image she used with her description made me think a little deeper.

So, my creation is my home. I never thought I'd make a home, be a homemaker. My younger self would be horrified! Here it is:


It has laundry all over the furniture, jigsaws and newspapers on the floor, and a kid watching too much TV. Does my home run like a well-oiled machine? No. Is it worthy of a lifestyle magazine photo shoot. No way. Is it perfect? Yes.

Your place sounds just perfect - I never expected to enjoy the role of homemaker as much as I do...but nothing can beat creating a place to call home.

A creation to be truly proud of! and thanks for posting the belt tutorial, it's a really great idea!

Oh I agree. My teenage self especially would be mortified to see me now. But I think maybe my younger childhood self would be a bit pleased, especially with all the toys that are forever lying around the floor of this place HAHA! A happy home is a very much overlooked creation - but probably one of the most important. Great post!!

What a lovely creation. It's amazing how a room can make you feel like you are home and warm and comfy & snuggly. Your room has that lovely feeling.

Very light and bright room! It must be very nice to sit in and craft.

Hi Net, thanks for your kind comments! I hadn't relized yoy were UK based, even though I've been admiring your blog name since the beginning of the 'This is' meme, doh! I was wondering if I could ask your advice regarding Etsy, I've just registered after months of debate, and was wondering how you find the whole selling in dollars thing? I've tried Ebay myself and wasn't happy with it, so was hoping Etsy might be the future! Thanks, Sharon

most importantly it has a sofa that eventually ended up in the room!

Your house looks just perfect to me too. It's a home, and that is what counts. xx
