Believe it or not there are crafters out in Blogland showing their dirty little secrets. Well, not really dirty, but all clutter-y.
When does craft become clutter?
A light from above shines down upon the crafty clutter on the dining room table, chairs, and everywhere.
Chucks threw down a challenge last week and I stupidly accepted and went one further. Not only would I corral all the craft supplies into one room, they would be neatly organized.
Friends and family are nodding their heads - they have heard this vow before.
They have visited and found stuff under the sofas, in trunks, under benches, and boldly displayed in vignettes about the house.
Some even come prepared with money wanting to buy what I have craftily displayed.
Above are a small group of a much larger group of cabinet doors. I have a project in mind for them. And, yes, there is an orange horse sitting on them.
I am currently collecting a number of these shutters to make a divider. You do see why I need a divider?
Do you think there are elves who will come and help me organize?
I do love a good basket. The problem? I have lost count of how many I have.
You see several holding my gourds. Some holding trims. Some holding other baskets.
These are usually part of my Fall decor.
Nope, I have not done that yet.
But I have browsed through many of your posts enjoying yours!
The official craft room is the pine-paneled breakfast nook that had previously been used only as the dog room except for three or four times a year.
I decided to move my supplies into this room and share with the dogs.
I bought a dry sink and a primitive setback cupboard to house the supplies, but they have spilled, tumbled, and crept out into this room, into the dining room, and insidiously throughout the house.
Those paints, buttons, ribbons, stamps, and stencils are so sneaky!
This is where I started last week organizing paint and glazes and washi tapes and keys.
Yes, that is a monster microwave. It was the first Christmas present my husband gave me after we were married in 1980. Please do not tell its age aloud. It still works great - especially with crafts that need microwaving!
I know, I know, we are probably being nuked to death, but I love its huge size and it makes the most delicious fudge.
Molds, molds, molds - wherefore art thou o great collection of molds?
Oh, yes, hanging out with the biscuit and cookie cutters.
I have seen the light. When I look through the camera's eye, I can see that this is no longer a craft space. It is true-blue clutter. I will be linking this mess up on the Linky Party. October Overhaul at While Wearing Heels Then off to pin some more wonderfully organized craft rooms. I have promised to have this done in the next three weeks. I will post the pictures. Now, where are those elves?
