Give Away and other blabbings

http://grosgrainfabulous.blogspot.com/2009/04/simple-skirts-giveaway.html

Just wanted to share with all of you these cute little skirts and the pretty little girl wearing them oh and lets not forget the awsome photographer. Stop by this blog and leave her a comment for a chance at winning one of these sweet little skirts.

As you all know I am into making skirts for my girls lately. I know I have promised pictures but unfortunitley my camera was borrowed and was just returned this past weekend, ugh.......... I do plan on taking some pictures of the girls Easter outfits and another skirt I have finished. I have not been doing much sewing outside of that, I still need to finish the top of mine that I started. One reason for my lack of sewing is a messy sewing room and I am the type that cannot be productive in such clutterdness(is that even a word?) and the room was my 11yo dd's room and she is now begging for it back even though it was her decision to move in with our youngest dd. I have not decided if I am going to give in to her yet, 1. is she is the one who begged to be in the room with her sister which was alot of re-arranging and moving of furniture, which if we move her back in her old room we will have to start that process all over. 2. I don't want to have to lose my space I would have to go back to the utility room where we originally planned would be my hobby room but since then I have accumulated lots and lots more stuff(mainly fabic) and I am not sure where I would put it all. I will take a picture of this area and all the stuff I need to make fit in there and see what, if any, ideas my blogger buddies come up with. Until then pray that my daughter changes her mind or I get the guts to put my foot down with her and say NO!

It is hard to say no to your daughter. I know. They would say that I told them no all the time, but I didn't. Be strong, you need your space.

It's good to see you back on here. I know it has to be crazy busy for you with the kids and work.

I think you can use this to your advantage. Life is about making choices. Sometimes we don't make good choices but we must live with the choice we've made. If she want's her room back make her work for it. If there is a lesson you want to teach her make her achieve the goal before she can earn the space back. If she's anything like my daughter the space will be yours forever :)

Can't wait to see your pictures.

Thanks ladies for the great advise. I agree, I do need the space and your right Cindy if I made her do the work to get the room back it would be mine till she comes home from college,lol.
