I am very fortunate in that I have a whole room to myself for all my craft stuff. This is actually a good thing because I have to confess to being the worlds messiest crafter. My craft room, which is actually nothing grand, just a spare bedroom, is an absolute disgrace. It's totally chaotic, very messy and littered with scraps of fabric, bit's of cotton and a whole host of crafty mess. I used to do my sewing and crafting in the living room so I could listen to the TV in the background while I worked but a few months ago, there was an incident where one of my cats, Luna, swallowed a huge piece of cotton, which proceeded to get wrapped around her tongue and then stuck in her intestines, requiring a £200 operation to untangle it all. After almost losing poor Luna, I decided that I couldn't afford any more mishaps like that and I relocated all my chaos to the spare bedroom (along with the spare TV and dvd player!). Now, I read lots of fabulous crafting blogs and some of them show pictures of beautiful, fabulously coordinated, Cath Kidson-esque craft spaces that put mine totally to shame. Mostly, I would just love an organised, craft specific room but so far, even this has totally eluded me. As a spare bedroom goes, it's a nice, bright and comfortable room (when it's not covered in the above mentioned detritus!) but as a designated craft space it leaves a lot to be desired. So, next week, I will be attempting to re-organise my craft room from this .........
Into something much more like this. Quite frankly I'm not sure which one I like the best.
