Today is an exciting and scary day all rolled into one! Why? Because I’m joining 11 other bloggers for my first ever Craft Room Challenge…eek! You’re going to get a sneak peek into our messy craft areas and our goals to clean, organize, and decorate!
This craft room challenge will take place over 5 weeks and our progress will be posted every Wednesday in January. Since this is week one, I’m sharing my embarrassing craft area. I don’t have a dedicated craft room, so my C.R.A.P. is basically shoved into two bookcase and spread over a tiny table that sits against a wall in the front room. Here’s a video of my area and what I’m dealing with….
Now, I know that some crafters work out of closets, so I shouldn’t be complaining about the space I do have. However, the real issue is that this room is open to the entire house. It’s the first area you see when you step in the house AND when you come down the stairs…yuck!
