What I wouldn’t give to have an actual craft room! But, I don’t. So, I have crafting supplies tucked all over the house. And this makes me crazy!
Time to deal with it one way or another!
I wish I could show you this stunning craft center or something equally impressive but, alas, all you are getting here is my reality! LOL
I have a ton of is scrapbooking supplies. Fortunately, I have managed to keep them all together and relatively organized. But, all those misc. craft items, not so much!
They were all in a couple of big boxes. Just dumped in there. Every time I needed something, everything came out of the boxes and scattered all over the floor. So not acceptable!
So, with a free few hours at home alone, I dumped everything onto the floor and grabbed the clear bins I bought to deal with this mess and started sorting. At this point, you could not walk through my living room.
- EMBELLISHMENTS/DOODADS (2 BINS)
- GLUES/SINGLE PAINTS
- SPRAY PAINTS (2)
- CRAFT BASICS
Into the bins they went.
I printed off plain black labels and taped them to the front of each bin.
I cleared off space in my closet on some shelves. Fortunately for me, I am tall and will have no problems reaching these bins. So, off they go!
Such an easy fix. Why didn’t I do this a long time ago? LOL I know I will be finding different craft supplies here and there but, at least now I have a home for each of them!
A quick add on to this post……
First of all, Happy Valentine’s Day to all of you!
This morning, before the Princess woke up, I thought I would just have a simple cute Valentine breakfast waiting for her. She gets so excited when I do the least little thing out of the ordinary.
So, Here is the Princess’s Valentine breakfast.
I used a heart shaped cookie cutter on her toast.
Cute little Valentine cupcake holders for her fresh fruit.
I added some maraschino cherry juice and a couple of cherries in her juice.
Some faux pink flowers and a paper fairy princess napkin.
It only takes a few extra minutes to add something fun for your little ones. She was just so excited to have her special Valentine breakfast. You would think she was having the best breakfast in the world this morning!
Another important thing about doing something like this for your child is it sets the tone for the rest of her day. She is one happy little girl this morning! She is wearing a special new twirly red dress to school and her hair has pink and red ribbons and small pink flowers. She really does look and feel like a princess on this Valentine’s Day!
