Hey, There is a Hard Wood Floor in My Craft Room! Who Knew?

Yes, I am attempting to clean my craft room. Earl literally had to leave when he saw how many tubs I started pulling out and putting in the living room. I must admit I have a lot of stuff...but, most of it is good stuff! is! Have I conviced you yet??

  1. I have all of our photo's (and with 8 kids, believe me, there are a lot of photo's!) and of course photo albums
  2. Sewing stuff (my sewing machine, fabric, threads, fabric, patterns, fabric, old jeans that I am going to recycle, etc...)
  3. Paper goods (glue's, tapes, cutters, paper, scrapbook supplies, stickers etc....)
  4. Yarn (Red Heart Yarns, Caron Yarns, Eyelash Yarns, Baby Yarns, Cotton Yarns, Crochet Threads, just for fun yarns, etc....)
  5. Brads, buttons, hooks, charms, etc....
  6. Jars of Halloween, Valentines and other holiday themed items
  7. Feathers, craft sticks, googley eyes, etc....
  8. Paints (Tempra paints, acrylic paints, spray paints, etc...)
  9. Wooden stuff (birdhouses, frames, shapes, etc...)
  10. Craft books and magazines and things I printed from the Internet.
  11. Pretty Things that I received in swaps and that are "just for Me"
  12. My ironing board

and so on and so on......................

Okay, so I am taking the plunge

I am going to make some progress today so that I can enjoy my craft room.

Wish me luck!!!

Just as we don't understand all the 'stuff,' men keep, they get really nervous with all of ours.
I have bins under the stairs, in the basement closet, 3 rolls of batting (large rolls), 4 bins in the living room, drawers of paint, boxes and baskets for my giveaways....send up a white flag if you get lost in there and I will send you an elf to lead you back out! I love to go through my stuff!

Good luck in your craft room. It is amazing the things we have stored away. You may even find something you forgot you had

Melinda Cornish said...

I want to come play in those bins...I have a fascination with other peoples craft stuff.....
