stuck in the house



without a computer for a week, I decided to tackle the craft room. No small feat I tell you. It was cramped, messy and frustrating. The DH thought perhaps the door needed to go back on b/c the view from the hallway was overwhelming. That would've made it a cave!

There was no feng shui that's for sure. I would be trapped in a small corner and the kids would be climbing all over my stuff. So I moved EVERY thing around. And took the fabric out and put it neatly into totes - there were 6 totes when I finished. The room is like a breath of fresh air now. I can reach all my tools, trinkets and junque and we all like to be in there again!
Inspired, I made some of these mosaic suncatchers, altered tags and a love book.

I left a message on your other blog, but not sure if that one is active. Thank you for visiting me and entering my giveaway. The heart pics full of goodies are perfect for this week!

If your craft room gets anything like mine does, you really had a lot of work to do getting things all straightened out and organized. I have to force myself to put things away before jumping into the next project. I just had to post as I saw your buttons and the suncatchers. I am an avid button/bead collector and love to hunt around for them at antique malls and junk shops. Your art is beautiful. Angelina

Oh, I love when everything is organized and there is a special place for little pretties.
