This is where the bed use to be. It is now my main craft area. David hung me some shelves and a peg board. I brought in from my garage all my goodies I've picked up from antique shops, thrift stores and yard sales. Notice I STILL have room on that top shelf to do MORE shopping!!

Well, I know you've been waiting! And I won't prolong the suspense any longer! LOL First of all, for those of you who have not visited my blog before, I posted a few pics of my dissaster of a craft room on a few posts below. I promised to post some after pics so you can all see the amazing transformation. I have worked myself ragged these last couple of weeks trying to get my craft room organized AND at the same time try to create and post new items for my new website AND get my house back into order after taking down my Christmas decorations. So, this has been no easy task...especially at my speed! And while it's actually been finished a few days and my pictures taken, I wanted to wait a few days to post this because I had a more important post on here, just below.
So, for those of you who need a little encouragement, for those of you who feel buried in the clutter...there IS hope. Believe me....if I can do it so can YOU!
In the corner I have my cutting table. That big wood bowl is FULL of tucks I've made that need to be made into gatherings, hangings, etc. The bowl can be moved to give me plenty of room for my cutting board laying on top. So no more using the kitchen table for that!
The bed has been moved to under the window. Underneath is great storage for some of my supplies, as well as a large, shallow bin in which I keep some of my listed items I've made. Notice the pink round bed on top. That's for my kitty cat, Trixie, who has found this whole ordeal quite interesting. She joins me in there whenever I'm working.
So, that's it! I must admit that I have since been crafting in there and it no longer looks like this. But then, it IS my work room and work is what I do in there. I'm trying my best to put things away each night, and I've vowed to vacuum in there at least once a week. Thanks for joining me in this journey of "The Craft Room of No Return"!
Oh, and below is my partner in crafts and crime ~~~
