Two weeks ago I thought that I would be able to pass along two of the dressers left in my home. My sibling and I inherited my home from my parents along with the 30+ years of accumulated stuff that goes with a family of 4. My sibling is uninterested in much of this and I have realized that it is way too much stuff for me alone. Truthfully we have a chest of drawers, what I think is called an armoire, and three dressers. Out of these five pieces I only want to keep one of the dressers so the other 4 need to be re-homed. All of this is just to say that I had plans for what I call the computer room, which is where I am doing my work from home work. I planned on streamlining my work space, bill paying station, and adding in craft storage. Even though I have not gotten rid of the dressers yet, I have prospects, I have moved forward on the craft storage part. Right now everything is boxed up…randomly..in my living room. I have no idea how I thought that was organizing anything. Instead I purchased a 12 cubby system. I love it, however when I was putting it together many parts were held together by little wooden dowels….that I managed to snap every single one (it really was my fault but shoot).
I did manage to get this put together, however at this point it is not very sturdy. I have t-brackets coming that I will install on the back to stabilize the entire structure. Honestly this might be for the best, the metal pieces should stabilize things better than the wooden dowels. I also purchased black fabric bins to hold my yarn and fiber. I think I’m going to start with my fiber and see how much I can store. You see a mostly empty bookshelf to the right, those are my comic books on top, I hope to greatly curate my book collection as well. The bookshelf there will hold my treasured favorites, there is another to the right of the shown shelf that holds my crafting books.
This deliberate organization of my stash has allowed me an opportunity to actually look at the kits that I own, stash them in a single space, and eventually plan on which ones I can work on when I get my hand fixed.
With trying to get organized, and spring break being finished with at one of my libraries, I have not gotten a lot of crafting done. I’ll post next week with how my storage and crafting are doing. Until then remember to live life A Little More Abstract and if you are an introvert please check on your extrovert!
