I so badly need to organize my craft area. I am coming up with new ideas for things to make, which makes me need new supplies, which causes me to run out of room and need more storage. However, I bet it would also be better if I had an actual room with shelves to keep everything in. The only functional room that I would be able to use is downstairs and let’s just say the basement isn’t exactly kid friendly.
With the kids being the age that they are (3 ¾ & 1 ½) and having a husband who is addicted to World Of Warcraft and is unable to blink while playing, let alone lift his head to see what the kids are up to, there is no way I would be able to escape to the basement and do any crafts without something going wrong above me.
We have basically turned our very useless small dining room into an office/craft area. This way I can keep an eye on the kids and their shenanigans without having to be in a separate room.
With the layout of the house being as odd as it is, I have to be more creative with my storage and functionality of each room. It’s not an easy task, but it sure keeps me up at night!
I can complain about this place until I turn blue. It is loaded with useless, wasted space. I was up late last night coming up with a way to make my kitchen more open and find ways to store things without it all sitting on the floor. I finally came up with something and tackled it this afternoon. Our kitchen is VERY small and has NO pantry. I don’t want to go crazy and buy a bunch of things for storage as we are planning on moving within the next couple of years and WILL have the proper size kitchen and appropriate storage for food as well as small appliances. So for right now, I have to improvise almost everything.
I guess that keeps life interesting to some degree.
Off to tackle more crap. I need to win the lottery.
