A Few Things Going On

Oh my goodness where has the time gone. I got some good news recently that prompted me to get busy cleaning out and organizing my craft room. I’ve been off my right foot from a foot surgery for 2 1/2 months so my craft room became a mess. It is more like I really neglected my craft room. Since being off my foot, I was only able to do small little projects that I could do sitting down. I did some knitting and I work on some macrame key chains that I shared in a previous post.

Well since I got the go ahead to start walking in a boot, I was able to maneuver around my craft room more freely. Ahhhh… finally back in my craft room. So I was able to start on some projects . I recently got accepted to be a part of a local craft fair that will be in May. It’s a place called East 96 Marketplace. I am super excited. So as you can see I will be busy with getting ready for the craft fair.

So with that in mind, I decided to clean out items in my craft room and organize it better. That way I have a better working area to get some work done to create some gift items and lots of macrame and wall decor. Below you’ll see my process.

Just a little glimpse into one side of my craft room. Was too embarrassed to show the rest, but trust me it was a mess.

In the process of cleaning out, I sorted out my stash and put them different piles. I had piles of 2-D stickers, 3-D stickers and other embellishment items. I used the plastic 12×12 containers that you see to put all these items in. Also I labeled them. I rearranged some boxes and containers within the room. It feels a lot better seeing more floor space and having everything a bit more organized.

Well I hope I can maintain the organization for a while, but I am sure it will get messy as I work on my projects for the craft fair. Be sure to check in later to see what I am working on currently.
