Craft Room

My youngest daughter just moved into a house with three roommates, so I have officially taken over the room we had designated for her in our house. I had been taking it over bit by bit, albeit guiltily, for the past year or two, but now it's completely mine. At least, unless oldest daughter is visiting, which only happens about one or two times a year.

I bought a used desk and chest of drawers from the thrift store this month, and I'm figuring out how to organize it all. The chest of drawers is the main storage for my newly zip locked bags of yarn, and the closet is holding the fabric stash, but I want to cheer it up. I'm thinking a paint job may soon be in order, as well as a bookcase or wall shelf to hold some craft books and magazines, but I don't want to overcrowd the room either. I have a twin bed in there for now, but am in the market for a double, so that it can be more useful to overnight guests; if I buy a bookcase, it's going to do double duty as a night stand. Anyway, I'm keeping my eye out for something, but I'm not really in a big hurry. Meanwhile, I'm perusing the craft blogs for ideas. Although plastic bins make a lot of sense for storage options, I don't think I'm going to use them. I still have a huge collection of baskets and mason jars, so I think those will be my major storage containers. I just want to make sure it doesn't look junky.

Today is a grey, drizzly sort of day and I'm enjoying the quiet pace, before the holiday week kicks off. So excited about visiting Meredith! Plus, I think we're cat sitting for her until Christmas, which will be lovely. Her cat, Sinon, is such a cool cat, so expect to see lots of cat pictures soon. You've been warned.
