Behind the Scenes
I have been meaning to create this post for a while. I live in a tiny two bedroom condo and I have a child, which means a room dedicated to crafting is a lofty dream. I have had to get creative on where to store all of my materials as well as when and where I craft. Last summer I hit a breaking point when one of my crochet hooks was lost in an effort to clear the kitchen table. I NEEDED my own space where I could put my projects that the toddler couldn't reach and that wouldn't be in the way of every day life. I found my solution online at IKEA, however, I had a very small budget to work with, so I turned to the online classifieds of a local newspaper. To my great surprise, I found the exact desk I was looking for unused and put together for a lot less. Of course I immediately called and left messages on both phone numbers listed, then agonizingly waited 2 whole days before I heard back that I could come get the desk. To my surprise, I wasn't the first person to call, however I was the first message the seller listened to. This desk has truly saved my sanity as I can now stop in the middle of a project and know that it will remain untouched until I am ready to get back into the zone.
I figured it was worthwhile to also show where I store/hide my supplies, despite the fact that it is not nearly as pretty or well organized as the craft spaces I have seen on Pinterest. First off is one side of our TV stand.
Next up a corner of my daughter's closet.
Lastly, a bit of space in our walk-in closet.
