I did manage to cross a big thing off my to-get-done list in the last few weeks. This huge thing was cleaning and organizing my disastrous craft area/laundry room/storage space.
The pictures don't do the mess justice (really, I'm dreadfully embarrassed to have even had a spot like that in my house). Before I cleaned it up, there were piles and bags of fabric and craft supplies mixed up with scattered articles of laundry both clean and dirty. Every usable surface was un-usable because of the piles of junk and clutter. The trash was beyond overflowing, and there were spiders (dead and alive) and their webs in every corner. It was nasty.
I ended up throwing away two large trash bags of useless stuff and filling another box to give to our local thrift store. I dusted, and I vacuumed up the spiders and webs and dryer fuzz. I sorted through my fabric scraps, categorized them by type of fabric, and stored them in neatly stacked and labeled boxes. I also reorganized my craft supplies and put them into boxes and bins which I stored accessibly on the shelves right across from my crafting table instead of in another room. Finally, I set up the table with my sewing machine and rotary cutting supplies so that I can go downstairs and sew anytime I have a few minutes. To say that it is much more welcoming is an understatement. I am thankful to have a place in which to work that is more orderly and usable than ever before.
