Gettin' Er Done

The craft room is about as organized as it's going to get. I'm pleased with it considering all the furniture and shelving, etc. was recycled from our last house. Back when I had the most fabulous craft room ever. So fabulous it was drooled upon by all who entered and was even published in a few magazines. *sniff* Dang, I miss that room. Well, really I miss the free time I spent in that room. That was life before homeschooling. But I wouldn't give up what I have now for the world, let alone that room. This room will do just fine.

I wasn't able to fit all of my books and stamps in, but the engineer says he'll build some bookshelves to fit in that hallway you can see on the left in that top photo. I wasn't able to set up a spot for my ironing board to stay up all the time either, but that's okay. Now I have a legitimate excuse for not ironing clothes. It would just be too much work to drag that old board out. But if I'm buying a stack of fabric for a quilt, then that would be another story. ;)

It looks large too as well as being very orgainized. Wish I could say the same about mine - in both ways. My room is real small - has fair sized closet but it is packed to the hilt with christmas decorations, fabric, misc craft stuff.

I really like your area where the ribbons are hanging just ready to be formed into that perfect bow.

Now that it's done, would you come over here and help me with mine?!?

I have the impossible task of trying to squeeze a full size bed, pie safe, ironing board, dog bed, and sewing machine all into a 10x11 room. It ain't happening! So I drag my sewing machine and cutting boards out and head to the dining room. :-(

I'm hoping someday we'll build a log cabin studio down by our pond and I can do all my quilting down there. Yeah...I'm hoping....someday....yeah...someday

wOW...i'M IMPRESSED THAT YOU WERE PUBLISHED!!! I still think this room looks nice. It looks like you'll still have enough room for little ones to play while you work away. A nice baby gate across the stairway and you'll be set!

I love seeing others' crafts spaces and yours is so nice and well-organized!
