I have been spending all of my free time in my craft room for the past two weeks.
Not that I have any crafts to show today…but I ask you to behold the awesome-ness that is my new and improved scrap/craft area. Clean, organized, ready and waiting.
It is a Type A’s dream, let me tell you.
A few months ago, we bought a more practical and useful desk, so my scrap cubes got condensed over into the corner and they have been languishing over there, ever so unhappily with my infrequent visits. Then I went in search of some ribbon to make a collar for a stuffed animal and realized – the amount of ribbon I have is…riDICuLOUS!
So, I broke down and bought the clip-it-up ribbon organizer. I figured there was no way I was going to get the time, supplies and gumption together all at the same time in order to fashion some sort of ribbon holder, so I spent the money, and just look at it there on the wall!
And once I had organized all the ribbon, it started a snowball effect. Now I had an empty drawer and an empty box, so I started organizing the other drawers and pretty soon…every brad, every piece of paper, every embellishment had a new home.
And I started finding little trays, jars, and cans and re-purposing them. The tall can here is from my mocha powder, and the shorter, fatter one used to have Zingerman’s macaroons in it. (Mmmm…Zingerman’s. Macaroons.) I just covered them with some pretty paper and now I have some cool new storage tins.
I am on a roll. If I were a closet or a drawer in my house, I would be a little scared right now – or maybe excited, I’m not sure which! One thing is for sure, it makes me so anxious to get in there and create something. Now!
