I am in the throws of organizing my craft supplies. I had foolishly boxed and stored most things in the basement. First off I hate basements. Mine is nice enough. We have 2 nice bedrooms down there that are often used by grandkids or who ever wants to stay the night. I hate it down there. I don't know why, I just do. Its not the mice maybe its the spiders. Not that there are a lot, I keep them vacuumed up whenever I see any signs but still I know they are around lurking somewhere. So then there is the furnace area and a rather large storage area. I have the plastic bins with lids and they are somewhat organized. I also have 3 sets of book shelves with containers as well as old kids books on them. I had my yarn and ribbons and other things stored there. Well............I never have what I need upstairs and end up buying something again and again. So with that in mind I brought up my yarn, the boxes of ribbon. I found all my crochet threads and embroidery floss. A box of teddy bears, some china dolls and this and that. I still have a bunch of other stuff to organize. There is a lot of wooden things, that can stay there once I have gone through it. A box of stones (dont ask) and goodness knows what else I will find. Things for making wreaths, silk flowers and so on. A lot of that can come up into my new storage area. I had a coat closet long ago. It became a toy closet. Now I have moved that all up into Tristen's bedroom closet leaving me with a large closet woo hoo. I can hang the wreath stuff on the hooks. Oh I have so many ideas, still a lot of sorting to do but well...........its a start.
This part of my blog is all about the things I collect or the things I make myself. I love so many things, I paint and draw and want to learn oils and pastels. I knit and crochet but want to learn tatting. I embroider and can turn my hand to most things given a chance. So much still to learn and do. I live in hope of some day reading all my books, learning all I want to learn and now I am learning to blog. You will often find my original poems, poor as they are I offer them here. I also appreciate other people art and will feature things I find that I have enjoyed. That includes pictures of fairies and fantasy or maybe just anything beautiful.
I try to use my own photo's as much as possible, sometimes I borrow from the web. If I inadvertently use your picture without giving credit, please do let me know and I will either credit or remove it, I hope you will do the same with mine.
If you wish to leave comments on my blog you can do that by joining google if you do not have a blog yourself, please comment if you can I appreciate that.
