In my newly organized craft room! There is still a bit to be done, but this is a vast improvement… and I am loving it. What a difference purging, re-grouping, and some new shelves make. Remember all this stuff?
ARC came and picked it up, and I haven’t even thought about it since. Haven’t had to think about moving it, or cleaning it, or going through it anymore… Proof that purging is always a good idea. Buh-bye!
So back to the fun stuff. This corner is now my corner o’ happiness. I love the windows and all the light we get for it being a basement… and I’m loving the colors popping against the white walls and shelves.
Yarn is stored in the Mr. Cart next to the table, as you can see; I also have some yarn way above in the green topped totes. (One of those is for current projects, the other is for Knitting 101–a tote I can just grab and go when anyone wants to learn how to knit!) Below that, on the next shelf, I have a basket with cardstock, 12×12 paper, and a few boxes for embellishments, punches, and small papers. The third shelf has fabric pieces, a box of clear stamps, ink pads, and some odds n’ ends. The bottom shelf, with the green boxes, holds sewing supplies, and extra materials (tape, glue, paper bags, etc.).
My sewing machine mostly stays on the table (under that cute cover Leez made), but I’ll take it over to the ping pong table (next to me in this shot), to use it. I’ll just grab one of the green totes with whatever I need, sew, then put it all away (eventually :). Okay, so I’ve really only sewn maybe twice since setting this all up; but when I did, this setup worked out great. Gotta get down here and do more crafting!
I’m still toying with how I’d like everything displayed–I have a few frames I’d like to put up above the table. And eventually I’d like to label my boxes and baskets, but this is working for now. Jars for knitting needles and ribbon; old owl book ends for my crafty books; Audrey for a lil style.
My friend Allyson painted this picture for me shortly after my mom passed… I love it, and was so touched when she gave it to me. Such a thoughtful gift–I’m glad I have just the place for it, now. (If you like Allyson’s style, please check out more of her art here!)
Project simplify… slowly but surely…
