Yes, I Admit It....I Am a Craft Hoarder

I worked for several hours last night in my craft room moving things around, sorting thousand of tiny buttons, beads, pins, etc......into their proper jar or drawer. I spent hours moving furniture around trying to find a way that I could get the most room out of my space. I worked until I was literally physically exhausted. I woke up stiff and sore this morning from my day of cleaning my craft room. I am sad to say that I am only about 1/3 of the way done.

Here are a few things that I have learned from cleaning up so far.
  1. There is a thing that someone invented....I think it is called a trash can....I think I need to invest in one. Those little threads that you clip when you sew are a pain in the @#! to clean up when you throw them on the floor.
  2. Yarn that is just "tossed" over into a pile somehow manages to get tangled up in everything else that is just tossed in the pile and those little threads from #1 seem to end up tangled up in the yarn and everything else for some reason.
  3. I am a hoarder. I am having the hardest time throwing things away, even stupid little things. I would make one of those hoarders on the tv shows look like a clean freak....but, I'm working on it.

I'm working away again today cleaning and actually throwing some things away. I found a couple of trash bags right in the middle of a pile. I think God must of stuck them there for me to find as if he was telling me something. So for now I'm off to clean and try to make a little more progress today. I have to hurry and get done because I'm getting all kinds of ideas of things I want to make from the things I'm finding while cleaning!

Sherry, I love your blog. I can so understand about your craft room. I have been trying to clean mine up, I am a hoarder and have a hard time throwing anything away. It is good to hear that I am not alone. You have given me courage to keep going. Thanks. Have a great day.

Do not feel alone! I need more than one trash can 'cause it seems like it's never in the right place at the right time.
