Ruby Chic {Sneak Peek}

Pin It Now!
Want to see what I've been working on? 
I think you might like it...

This apron is one of my favorite creations! 

It has 6 different pockets, one that holds your fabric pencil and seam ripper, one for your scissors and the rest to hold all your other crafty goodies. 

This apron also comes with a matching pin cushion that attaches to a velcro piece on the front of the apron. 

There aren't many things cuter than baby girl clothes.  And this onesie is no exception. 

This onesie has a heart-shaped applique on the front.  The back has a sweet little pink ruffle.  It doesn't get much cuter than that!

All of these items can be found in my NEW Etsy Shop ~ Ruby Chic.

Hope to see you there! 

Check back often, I will be adding several items over the next few weeks.

And as always, sorry about the awful pictures. 
Too bad I can't whip up a new DSLR on my fancy-dancy sewing machine.  Boo.

Our Office Renovation

Pin It Now! We have a tiny house.  When I say tiny, I mean tiny.  Our house is 833 square feet.  Yikes!  So every square foot has to be completely functional and all of our furniture is dual purpose. 

Our office {2nd bedroom} has been a huge problem.  It's that black hole of a room that collects everything.  Mr. Crafty uses his computer in there, but other than that it's a huge waste of space.  In our house, we can't have that!

I have decided to renovate within the next few weeks!  Finally.  I found the perfect solution and I hope that it can combine his much-needed office space with my need for a sewing area.

I used Floor Planner to create my new floor plan. I LOVE this site. You can create room renderings in 2D and 3D, export and print your creations.

The left wall will be lined with Expedit Bookshelves from Ikea.
We also plan to use the desks that attach to the bookshelves. 

Do you have a tiny house design dilemma?  What space savers do you use to maintain peace and sanity?

I know I'm not the only one when I say I absolutely *need* this book.

I am in love with the Novogratz family and their show, and this book will be on my coffee table soon ~ at least I hope so!  

I'm sure my next trip to Powell's will include this purchase.   

Seriously?  Can a family be any more gorgeous than them?
