Enough is enough I am starting something today that is well overdue and I mean well overdue.
Could not bear to look at the dust, trailing cords and mess any more so started the big shake up in the craft room.
Not going very well at the moment because I keep coming across age ole makes that I haven’t posted before and started taken pics of them.
Gasped breath I hear, Shirl taking pics which she hates … truth be known, taking the pics is a better option than doing the great big tidy up of this rubbish tip called a craft room.
I have come across a few masterpieces which have never been shown. All right maybe not masterpieces … they are really things that in my opinion were never good enough to be blogged.
So very sorry about this girls in between the cleaning and to keep my sanity I am subjecting you to some of these not quite good enough thingies.
Below is the before pics and somewhere down the line I will show the after pics.
Now some of you might think that this is already a tidy tip but the thing is that over the years the way I craft has changed. I still love the pretty pretty but now I love the grunge look with it. What this means is that I need more of the paints, stamps, inks, the messy stuff nearer to hand so hence the shake up in the room.
How lucky am I to have a son who did his degree in building management, this means he understands things like weight on shelves and what size screws to put in the wall to hold all those heavy crafting goodies. The shelves beside my desk, everything has to be removed so that I can put all my messy stuff on.
This is how it looks behind where I sit. The old unit came from our lounge and rather than throw it out I kept it for all my goodies. I can probably live with that as it is just a good clean and a little moving of things.
This is to the side of me and I can’t stand looking at the mess anymore so thinking caps on as to what I can do with it!!!
Just beside my desk is Andrew’s huge corner. Now don’t get me wrong I do love that we both can sit in the same room and have our own little hobbies but look how much space he is depriving me of and how untidy do those trailing wires look!!!! This space has to change …..
Coooeee just found another masterpiece off to take a pic. This tidy up might take longer than I thought
Oh to have a beautiful custom built craft room … over to you hubbykins.
