Me and my bright ideas

I had it in my head that if I cleaned and rearranged my computer/craft room it might inspire me to mess it up again get crafty. I had an idea of how I wanted to move all the furniture but my mental tape measure is a bit off. I had a huge mess in the room and things were not going back together the way I envisioned.

The rooms in my house are small and I had a very large drafting table in my craft room that Wade had brought home for me. I like it because of the amount of storage it has and the extra work surface but it takes up a ton of room. I finally decided it had to move elsewhere so I put it in my sons old bedroom which is fast becoming a dumping ground.

I'm thrilled with all the extra space I now have in my craft room and it's clean and organized. Well so long as you don't look in the closet it is.


Maybe this weekend I'll tackle that closet.
It really wasn't that long ago that this was totally organized but after several craft projects I've been a little neglectful about putting things away neatly.

You are a very organised person... you should take a look at the room i work.. *LOL* Anything IN closets with doors closed can be cluttered in there :) that's my rule.

The room is very nice, it kind of looks like our computer room. Why is it that we can clean up a room or drawers or a closet and are SO happy with it, but it NEVER stays that way??

That's a nice crafts room you got there, looking very organized :)

Gotta get some adjustable shelving for your closet girlfriend - it rocks! Mine is slowly getting better organized, but will probably always remain crammed full of stuff ;o)

I had one of those plastic shelving units in my craft room too, but they suck space and don't really seem to hold much at all (I totally hate digging through stacks of stuff ;o)

Yours looks way more spacious than mine :) I need more space!

Christine said...

Well done as it seems to be a great room for crafting! You were so brave to share the inside of the closet with us and I have to say it looks impressively well arranged to me!

Remington said...

GREAT organized room! Wish mine looked like that!

i bought baskets years ago to organize my junk closet, the one that we keep stuff and extra things, like shampoo and glasses cleaner, things we don't use every day, but need occasional. why oh why when i put something back do i not put it where it goes... then later i have to re organize. i think it is because there is a door hiding it. maybe if i remove the door, i will keep it better. i can't stand clutter, but if i can't see it i don't mind, as in drawers.

The room looks fantastic. I can't believe you have an entire room dedicated to crafts.

Donna said...

What a great room! And I truly understand about closets, LOL. I dump, quickly shut the door, and RUN!

Sandee said...

I love your office/craft room. It's good that you have a room just for you. Wade has his man cave and you have your craft room and they aren't near each other. That's even better.

Have a terrific day. My best to Duke. :)

Some people are more creative when in a mess - so they tell me.

Rose said...

Your craft space looks great! Best of luck with your closet. It's amazing how quickly organization can fly out the window after just a couple big projects.

Part of being a GREAT ARTIST is being messy...You can't help it... It's just inside of you, you creative thing, you!!!! That's a GOOD thing... IF you kept everything neat and clean and organized, then you'd NEVER get things out again so that you could make 'purdy thangs'!!!!!!

SO--relax and just keep being creative.
Hugs,
Betsy

I'm jealous you have a whole craft room! I have the dining room table and then have stuffed tucked in closets all over the house. I keep threatening to take over the Mancave but my hubby doesn't like that idea.

I think your room looks wonderfully neat and clean and organized!!! Love it! Compared to the way my craft room looks right now, your closet looks GOOD!!!! Not messy at all.

Marg said...

That is the way I do things, a little at at time, a drawer here and an closet here etc, The trouble is I lose my momentum. It does help to rearrange everything.

Dee said...

It seems like if you move one thing it creates a domino effect....I love to organize all my pens and journal ....then mess them up LOL. Your room storage room looks great.

Lin said...

Hey, at least you have a ROOM for all that stuff! I have closets and that is IT. :( When I sew or work on projects, the kitchen becomes my work room. It's not fun.

Amanda Johnson said...

Hey mom we should try this...http://www.etsy.com/listing/114011226/book-page-rosette-christmas-ornament-4?ref=sr_gallery_39&ga_search_query=christmas+ornament&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_ship_to=LT&ga_ref=auto1&ga_search_type=all

Hey - I just wish I had a room! I think yours looks great!!!!!!

Reeni Pisano said...

We have a dumping room too - our entire finished basement. It's getting bad. Enjoy your room!

Sheryl Hastings said...

It looks great! Now get crafting! Duke will probably help you.

marie said...

You are so organized! My whole room looks like your closet!!

Debra Dickinson said...

It's official - I'm moving in to your son's old bedroom. Bwah! I'm happy for you - envious for me. :)
