My craft room has been in dis-order for quite some time now and It was really starting to look like a great candidate for the TV show Hoarders.
It all started when my second son was due and we needed the bedroom that my husband was occupying with his hobby. I offered up half of my craft room and I never got my stuff fully organized before we moved him in. On top of that, our lives got busier and the room started to be the "collect-all" for the rest of the house.
Anyways... This past week, I put my foot down and said that I am going to have a clean, functional craft room. I took out EVERY single box, bag, container and item out of my craft room until I had a clean floor! My laundry room was a MESS! My Hubby thought I had lost my mind. Which I probably had, as I was just chucking everything out the door. Well I'm happy to say that I accomplished my goal! I have a very clean (for now...) and functional craft room! AND I dealt with everything , so my laundry room is back to normal as well (sometimes it's easy just to move the mess)
I live in a small house, and my craft room is in the furnace room! YUP! you read that right, my craft room is in the furnace room. This is what you first seen when you walk in! The Furnace and Water Heater! Lol! As you can imagine, the room is quite small. Measuring 9'x9', so I had to be quite inventive to have majority of my stuff accessible.
Next is a picture of my room, using the panoramic setting on my camera (Click on photos for a larger image). Pretty neat eh? As you can see, I take up 2 walls and a counter and my Hubby has the other wall and a counter.
Let's see...what next...
I have my heat guns, hanging underneath my counter as well, ready to go, when I need to use them.
Tins, and tiles, ready for decorating.
My different adhesives, treat cups, and envelopes and SO much more!
I store my "little but needed often" items in them, such as scissors, pencils and pens, my stamp-ma-jig, spritzers etc.
Hopefully you enjoyed my little tour and Happy Creating!
