Re-organizing?!




I'm trying to get re-organized. I wish I hadn't started the whole process but there's no way back now. I pulled everything out of my crafts closet - and I mean everything. When I look at it, I'd rather run. Fabric all over the place, paper of all kinds, paint, markers, boxes here and there, sewing supplies, felt, roving in every color imaginable, quite a stash of leather too... What was I thinking?! I'll need at least two weeks to get everything fixed. No way I'll be able to sew - I can't find my sewing machine in this mess. And even if I did find it, there's no place where I could put it down and sit.

Why, oh, why did I start this mess!

That was my misery a couple of days ago. A lot of work has been done since. And the result is one to be proud of. A perfectly clean and well-organized closet!! I'm so happy I got it over with!!

Oh, and before I go: a big thank you to all of you who responded to my label question. I'm looking into the different suggestions and hopefully I'll be able to make up my mind and order something! I'll keep you posted - that's for sure!

Congrats on the organization!

I just reorganized my fabric collection when I was out of action due to a wrist injury, and I can't say how much it motivated my sewing to know where everything is and be able to access it without digging under everything!!

That's exactly how I feel right now!

Busy Bee! I would like to have a sneak view into your sweing room - I imagine it to be full of beautiful fabrics, colours, materials, ...

Your post made me smile. I'm doing spring cleaning, and it's not fun. If it was messy before, it's even worse now! Thank you for the picture of pretty tidiness; it will keep me motivated. Happy Week to you!

veel werk, doch nadien geeft dit een zalig gevoel, alles mooi geschikt, voor ieder item zijn plaats! in mijn kindertijd noemde ik dit"winkeltje spelen" mocht van mijn vader op zijn atelier altijd de doosjes met garen, en de doosjes met knopen mooi schikken, ik vond dit zo fijn! daarom doe ik dit nog altijd graag, mijn kasten herindelen!

Hooray for craft closet reorganization! Boo for the awful in progess part of it. I need go through my craft stuff to and am soooo unlooking forward to it.
