Still Working On the Craftroom...

I'm still in the process of organizing my craftroom. I just can't seem to get it the way I want it. I went down and tried to do a little crafting last night, but I couldn't find anything. So I finally gave up and decided the layout and organization just wouldn't work.

Luckily, I have a 4-day weekend coming up. I'm planning to focus on getting the room layout right, sorting through all of my supplies, and deciding what to keep and what to get rid of. Hopefully, I will have supplies up on my site soon. Plus, watch for some give away items.

I guess that's all for the update today. Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting.

First Craft "Room" Ever!!!

I have been crafting seriously for the last 4 years and have never had an actual room to craft in. To my husband's dismay, I've always made space in other areas of my house. In 2011, my oldest daughter moved out and my son moved upstairs into her room. So, that left a spare bedroom in the basement. I'm not sure why I didn't move in then, but I hesitated, I think it has something to do with the whole, "What if she wants to move back in" business. Empty nest and wishful thinking I guess.

Well, this year my middle daughter will be going off to college and I finally decided it's time to accept the fact, my children are adults and leaving the nest. With my summer college break finally here, I now have the time. Yesterday, my son and my husband helped me move 99% of my supplies to the basement. It was a chore and I'm not sure if I will ever get it cleaned back up, but I HAVE MY OWN MOM CAVE!!!

The room has two full-sized windows, one that faces down the street, so I don't feel isolated from the entire world and the other facing into our wooded back yard. Couldn't ask for better. I posted a video yesterday of the beginning of the move and reorganization. In this whole process, I have found supplies I forgot I had and will probably never use, so look for a destashing to happen. Some I may give away and others I will probably list in my Etsy or Zibbet store. Below is the video I posted yesterday. (I apologize for the camera angle. I shot this with my phone and forgot to put it landscape.)

Stay tuned for the finished project and any destash videos.

Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting,
