My Craft (Crap) Room

Well, I was hoping to get some stitching done today (maybe this evening while watching TV). But I got busy trying to organize my crap room (as my DH calls it) and so I decided to take some pictures to share....The room is not finished by any stretch of the imagination!  I've got tons more organizing to do, but this is a start.

Here's one side of the sewing/crafting/bonus room...I've managed to get all my fabric over there: My fat quarters, some wool, quilts in progress (for years) and quilts to be started (one day). I'm trying to get my linen organized. I bought photo boxes at Hobby Lobby and will separate them by count.

 Here's one view of my sewing area that my DH built for me ~ I love him so much!  He built the cabinets and shelves.  I've got all my books, magazines, patterns, etc. on the lower shelf.  In the 1st organizer is my DMC threads.  The 2nd organizer holds crafty stuff (jewelry findings, brads, microscope slides, bells, etc.).  I'm hoping to get some thin pieces of wood (1x4) to put on the wall to hang my overdyed flosses and silks on.  I saw on someone's blog but I can't remember whose.  If I remember, I will gladly give credit for the idea!

 Here's the other side of the sewing area. Yes, that's a litter box underneath the sewing machine. We are going to redo the countertop on the right and bring it out more. I don't remember why we stopped it where it is. We can extend it at least another 3 or 4 feet and it will hold my little tabletop ironing board.  I also have a chifferobe (no pics yet) that I will fill up with more stuff!

As I'm organizing, I'm finding lots of craft stuff that I will not use and so I will be listing it either here or in my Etsy store. Right now, I found all this felt that I won't be using and so hopefully I will get that listed tonight!

Hope everybody has a wonderful day!

    My husband really does have a crap room. So much stuff in there you can barely open the door. Meantime, my craft stuff is in different areas in the living room. lol I hope to have a bigger house one day so that I can also have a nice "crap" room. lol
