Lighting and a Giveaway

when we moved into our house
I was not the super star sewer I pretend to be now.
I carved out a little niche for myself
to put my sewing things and crafts and fabrics.

Well, I am maxed out.
Floor to ceiling, wall to wall.
{Did I really just post my sewing chaos for the world to see?!}

One of my problems is that I've begun covering up the lighting.

 I'm thinking of putting some task lighting nearer to the workspace
because hey, who doesn't like to see what they're doing?

I found a very cool 
(and possibly addictive website)

Check out what I found:

Quoizel - UC1224W - Bright Under Cabinet Three Light Lamp in White

Murray Feiss - WB1137BS - Swing Shift Large Double Armed Wall Sconce Lamp in Brushed Steel

I think this one's my favorite.

What do you think?

CSN stores has tons of other stuff, too.

look at the goodies I found!

A great starter
Singer Touch & Sew Basic Sewing Machine - 7462.CS

This is my baby:)
Brother Compact Sewing & Embroidery Combination Machine - SE350

I would LOVE one of these...
Singer Dress Form Mannequin - DF150.CS/DF151.CS

And wouldn't these be great activities for summer

Sew a Petal Purse
Patch Products Petal Purse - 2542

A first sewing machine
Singer Pixie Sewing Machine - PIXIE.CS

And this weekend they're giving away $60 
{to be used however your heart desires}
