Because while I have made a heroic dent in the office -- the photos from my book cover project were taken on my desk, which if you note in this before photo, was a huge pile:
|See that chair? Yeah, Diesel made it.|
But the room isn't done. I have cleared out most of the big "hey, that doesn't belong here" stuff, and up until this afternoon the floor was completely clear; however, I started really digging into the stuff that was put away on the shelves, but was not organized in any way, shape or form.
So, I am proclaiming next week's project to be Office/Workspace and/or space of your choosing! Maybe you wanted to get to the linen closet and haven't yet. Perhaps your master bedroom is giving you fits (mine certainly is, but I just shut the door and pretend it doesn't exist...). Maybe your kids' stuff is out of control. But we'll discuss this further tomorrow!
My office is starting to look like a real crafter's room. I have set up an area for my Cricut, my new (terrifying) sewing machine and all the stuff that goes with them. I also put up a rack behind the door to hold my paints (up VERY high where even my spider monkey-esque boys cannot reach them), glue, and ribbons.
|If Pinterest has taught me anything, it is that a|
woman can't call herself a woman without a
ribbon/craft supply rack in her office.
|Top shelf: Cricut Stuff|
Middle shelf:terrifying sewing machine and
sewing notions (that is what they're called, right?)
Bottom shelf: Yarn basket, fabric basket, scraps bins
|A little more of a close-up for you. |
That sewing machine has 170 stitch settings.
I can barely sew in a straight line,
and that isn't me being modest or hyperbolic.
|This was my small stroke of genius-- |
I couldn't get the mat to stay upright/not fall behind the shelf,
then I remembered I had these magnet clips. BOOM! Problem solved!
