I was looking to start some Christmas crafting yesterday and couldn't find things .... my cupboards were in a mess.
SO ...today I got in and straightened things out
I've gone from this..... .
...This is my cluttered storage area
I had bought some supplies and been given some other bits and pieces.....and just put them into this general area
There are art supplies, lace,ribbons,wool and various other crafts stored behind the closed door with the picture hanging on it.
I have an obsession with keeping odd boxes and and bubble wrap 'just in case' I might need them.
Well..they are all gone..and more!!!!
Now my Christmas supplies are neatly on the shelves..
I have straw and tissue paper in the pretty pink basket..
Craft books tidy..
Some of my wool and knitting projects in a box in the bookcase ...
I'm happy to open the cupboard door now.....
My little corner is still crowded...but I feel it is more usable the way it is now.
I have hung my embroidery hoops on the outside of the door with some crocheted chains to pretty up the space.
The cane hamper has wool in it and the basket on top holds my current projects. I just move these as needed.
Behind them is a blue sewing case and under that is my sewing machine.
My comfortable chair and table is in front of this area.
I have seen some beautiful craft rooms and work studios when I have been Blog Hopping and I think it would be lovely to have the space to spread out and have everything you need in 'just the right place'......
Alas..I don't have that luxury......... So ..I settle for a 'compact' and (sadly) cluttered corner.......
I have learnt to create in a little cozy nest!!!
Have a good week
