That said, I’m going to work on one project per week. Each project may or may not get completed in a week’s time, but it will be worked on at least! Progress, not perfection, right? I hope you’ll join me as I attempt to tackle these projects over the next few months! Who doesn’t like before and after photos?!
Let’s get started! First up…
|The larger work table in the room…filled!|
|The kids’ crafting supplies…and some stray toys.|
I was in the middle of purging and organizing cardstock the week DD made her arrival and the photos above show what things looked like when I walked back into it after she came home! Not a very mojo encouraging sight, is it?! I about turned around and walked back out, but the desire to create luckily overcame the desire to flee.
I should mention that prior to DD’s arrival and early in the pregnancy, I decided to move most all of my crafting things to an unfinished basement room, more specifically, what is to be a guest room someday. At one time, we’d thought it would be my craft room in the finished basement, but our plans have changed since then.

|My little homemade work desk is on the left – two Closet Maid units back to back!|
|A larger work table shared with the boys|
|The kids’ art supplies reorganized a bit|
So there you have it. My desperate attempt to tidy things up a bit, hoping it will inspire some fresh creativity! I like things to look fairly uniform and tidy in a room, thus, the Jetmax cubes. I have been happy with them over the years. Now I’m saving up for a few more Stamp N Storage pieces.
Someday…this is to be my future corner of the basement with the little window you see in the photo being enlarged to the size of the masking tape outline:
For now, I’m creating away in my rustic room, realizing I’m just lucky to have a space to designate as a creative space!
I’d love to take a peek at your creative spaces, so leave a link to your photos &/or blog in the comments and I’ll come visit! I love to see other crafter’s ideas!
