My iphone has changed my life. I use home life budget to keep up with that aspect, I use shopshop for my grocery list, I use To do to keep up with things I need to get done. I use the calendar and set reminder alerts. I use Notes to jot down stuff I want to remember. I use Lose it to track my calories and exercise. I could go on and on. It's really some of the best money I've ever spent. I love my iphone!
a good solid workhorse serger is the brother 1034. I think you can get it on Amazon shipped for under $250. It's very popular. I have several friends who have that one and love it. Also the kenmore one that Sears carries is made by Janome and also a good buy.

I think color, texture and greenery go a long way in that area. I have paint on my walls, pillows and floor coverings and plants all around. I think art adds a lot to personalize your space too. it doesn't have to be fancy. Get inexpensive frames from the thrift store or garage sales, use spray paint to unify them. You can frame tons of stuff, fabric, scrapbook paper or your child's art work. Some of my favorite pictures are things my kids have done.
That's the primary reason I tend to freecycle. I'd rather not be bothered hauling stuff.

There are also patchy pants--basically a pair of pants with a row of patches down the sides. I really love the look. Yeah. what about either of those. I think it would look super cute.

I hope this isn't too personal, but would you like help? I live in the area too. I would love to hear some of your ideas.

Just in time too since I only just started sewing again Monday! Perfect timing! Some of my favorite diaper...
