A Craft Lair!!!

Nothing gets this mama out of a funk more than a glorious weekend with the family.  We had a shitty yard sale that only yielded $37.  So Sam and I blew the money on Thai food and a trip to Michael's for finger paints for the kids and oil pastels for Sam.  I've played outside with Atticus (Hope is visiting her Nana), tidied the house, watched a few good movies, and accomplished this......


When we originally began renting this house in May 2010, I had plans for a basement craft lair.  That just wasn't practical.  I'm usually multi-tasking while I knit, crochet, embroider, and craft (baking and minding babies mostly) and sequestering myself downstairs wasn't practical.  Now the stuff is upstairs in the sunroom so there will be plenty of light and I'm near the kitchen and in prime view of all the kiddos.  This is only the beginning of this organization project and I'll be sure to post more pictures as I work on it.  Beau approves.  He hops up on the craft table to flee from grubby baby hands.

Seriously so lovely! I am jealous. My craft space is a corner of our "office" which is hands-down the scariest and most disorganized room in the house. I am intimidated to even start on it.

What a lovely, lovely, space to have your craft lair. I would feel so weird and lonely having my craft space away from my family. I don't have an incorporated space yet, it's pretty much woven throughout our place.

I think you have the perfect set up. In view of the kiddos, plenty of light, and next to the kitchen....fantastic!
