Ready for a dose of reality? It’s time for another (BRUTALLY) Honest Craft Room Tour: New House Edition.
Showing you around my sewing and filming spaces. This is a little more than embarrassing, but I want you to see how I actually live day-to-day.
It’s nothing like a designer’s oasis or the pages of a magazine.

I love taking good photos and video, but have consciously decided NOT to stage elaborate lifestyle vignettes just for an Instagram post. It’s not worth it to me, and I’d rather spend the time on creating a project or tutorial.
Years ago, I worked for a short time at HSN the TV shopping channel. One of the big things there was to evoke an “aspirational” vibe in our presentations.
I looked up the definitions and this is what I found:
a) having or showing a desire to achieve a high level of success or social status
b) associated with or suggestive of a high level of success and social status and therefore appealing to people who aspire to such status
When you stop by the Sewing Report and watch a video or read a post, that’s the exact opposite of how I want you to feel. My goal is for sewing to be approachable and within your reach, not for it to be beyond your capabilities. That is why I do videos like Honest Craft Room.
My husband and I have a rather modest lifestyle. I drive a 12-year-old car with over 110,000 miles on it and slept on a freaking air mattress for the better part of 2019. It would be great to organize my home better and spruce up the rooms, but it’s not a necessity at all.
We are very grateful and content with what we already have.
Thanks for coming to my Ted Talk, LOL.
(GREAT book I recommend reading if you’re sick of this culture where we constantly compare ourselves to other people’s lives on social media)
