Oh Friday, how I love thee. I know it was a short week with that snow day and all, but good grief this week seemed to drag on for me. So happy it's Friday. We don't have anything going on this weekend. Abie has tennis Saturday AM and she's having a friend over that afternoon. But that's the extent of our plans. Best part about this weekend...it's a three day one! We have Monday off for Martin Luther King Day. Woo hoo!
Now today's post is not something I created, but it is definitely craft related. I'm sure you all understand the need for a crafty space. I started out scrapbooking almost five years ago, out of a bag. I then transitioned into a rolling cart in the family room. I quickly outgrew that and moved to the dining room. Several months later I had the grand idea to move into a computer armoire into our master bedroom. I stayed there for a bit, and Mike built a sewing table for me and a second desk. I just kept accumulating more stuff and kept outgrowing all of my spaces. We had a second baby at this point and didn't have a spare bedroom as an option so I wasn't sure what to do. I was cruising through the gallery over at Two Peas and I came across a few fabulous scrap rooms that were in unfinished basements. My wheels immediately started turning! It was shortly after this that I made the big move to our unfinished basement! This was about two years ago. Now since then, there have been many improvements made and I've rearranged the furniture several times, but it's still an unfinished basement. Rafters for a ceiling, concrete walls, etc. But I love it down there and it's my very own crafty space!!!!
I'm ashamed to admit that when I moved down there two years ago, I never really organized things very well. I was just so freaking excited to have such a huge space, that I got everything in and started creating! :) I know you all know what can happen over two years of buying and crafting and not really organizing right?
On Tuesday, I spend 5 hours cleaning and organizing this area up! I'll post the after pics on Monday! I'm so looking forward to crafting in my area now. It's great down there now, I love it even more than before!
Do you work better in creative chaos, or do you prefer an organized space?
Thanks for popping in today!
