There's good news..."if only" news and great news...

Hi folks...I'm in a bit of a hoop-de-doo mood this morning...the last project has been ticked off October's crafty list...ready to be packed up and sent on it's way for publication in January...

but before I can be let loose on the crafty play stuff...the cubbyhole needs a good old scrub down and if I'm totally honest a complete re-jig. I've totally fallen out of love with all the bits and pieces shelving...the cubbyhole is shrinking before my eyes because of all the clutter...the truth is if I don't see it I don't use it but this lepoard is going to have to change her spots and don my clear out hat with the intention of turning the current "junk shop look" cubbyhole into a minimalist crafty haven...in my dreams I visualise plain unadorned walls with all the shelf clutter moved into storage units along just one wall and I'm thinking that a couple of these guys might do the trick...
but first I need to find myself a gang of hunky magic elves...a couple of Pickfords Removal Men...a painter and decorator extraordinaire or IF ONLY there was a crafty fairy godmother  who would fly in...wave her magic wand...move everything out...complete the paint job and move everything back in again all in the space of 24 hours...crikey I suspect that not even Santa could pull that one off and I doubt if it will be happening this side of Christmas anyway that's for sure so the cubbyhole crew will just have to keep on dreaming while we trip over each other and the overspill littering the floor.
But there's some great news...the Furry Hooligan has taken on board the blackmail threat suggestion concerning his dodgy alarm clock and woohoo slept right through to 6.40am...it was Happy Monday Morning indeedy...let's hope it wasn't a flash in the pan.
See you all tomorrow

Nikki Acton said...

Been crafting for just a year and already have so much stuff, no room and need a clear out. Can only imagine your situation! Lol! Good luck. Xx

There's nothing like choosing the busiest car making time of the year......a makeover will be fab, you'll feel like a different crafter!

Rita said...

You go girl. Mine is in dire need of a makeover too, it's the packing up that's putting me off. I'd like a wood floor, so an empty room would be required. Good Luck with the makeover Kath. Hugs Rita xxx

If it make you feel any better, I have similar cupboards along one wall in my craft room, it was fabulous at first.... now it is all cluttered but it is amazing how much you can stash behind the doors... I am desperate for a clear out too. Well done Buddy! Hugs, Anne xx

Good luck with the sort out. Goodness only knows how much stuff you will find that you had forgotten about. I have just finished Feb mag work, just got to do the write up. Funny how far ahead theyw orknisn't it, still got lots of Xmas stuff to make x

I had a rejig of my craft space this time last year...not ideal as it never quite got finished before the Christmas festivities set in and then it became a dumping ground. I'm still trying to get some order back.

Don't do it.....I've tried and failed!
Well done Buddy, keep it up so your mum gats her beauty sleep.

I feel your pain. I craft at a desk in the living room, and everything is piled up on and under my desk. I'm constantly forgetting to use things because I can't remember they're there, or simply don't because it would mean getting something from the bottom of a pile and upsetting everything on the desk. *sigh*
Glad Buddy let you have a little more sleep this morning! x

Ann said...

Good to hear Buddy is behaving & reset his alarm clock :)
I like the unit you have picked out for storage - looks fabulous!! Enjoy the NEC...catch up soon. Hugs Ann xxx

We're about to move house and i get to have my own craft room, yay! The room has fitted wardrobes along one entire wall, so I'm hoping I can finally start organising all of my supplies in one place. Before we chanced upon the house, I had just started organising much stamps and stuff into Kassett boxes by IKEA. I think I will need a few more LOL. Good luck on carrying out your plans.

Hi Kath, January seems a long tome yet but how time fly these days, it'll be here before we know it. Yes a crafty fairy godmother would be great, but we would just argue about who's turn it would be next for a make over. It's nice that Buddy has decided to sleep a little longer, we need our beauty sleep...Trish
