As a creative person, I have found that I have many “creative” piles throughout my home. Is this normal? Am I the only crafty/creative person that seems to have stuff all over? A bit of fabric here, the bones of a project there, not to mention a disassembled foot stool that is suppose to be re-upholstered and the legs sprayed. My poor husband must think that it will never go away!
Every night I go home and think that I will do one of my crafts, but you guessed it, they dont’ get done!
Maybe I should move them all to one pile, pile that sucker up to the sky! I would love to say that not only am I creative, but also organized. But it seems my organization is only at work, my home life tends to be crazy. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE tell me that I am not the only one out there like this!
I would love to blame some of this mess on Pinterest, since because since I have first found it, I have been addicted to it and finding all kinds of amazing crafts to do and it have made me start thinking even more about different things that I could do. My mind spins every time I log on, you would think that eventually I would stop right? WRONG!
Like for instance, I saw this pin about how someone put their laundry detergant in a glass jar, and it looked decorative. I decided that probably wouldn’t look very good in my home, since I try to hide my laundry room, thank you very much my dearest kitty (NOT). But it made me start thinking about other storage ideas for inside my home. We have been putting the dog food in a big plastic storage bin (to help keep out any moisture or bugs) but honestly, I would love to have my storage bin back and have something that totally looks better to store my babe’s food in, which brought me to my current project that I have started and not finished, yet.
Goodwill rocks for different craft projects, by the way, just make sure that you clean whatever you get, you can’t be too careful. I found a Christmas tin, I believe it was the kind that has like three different kinds of popcorn in it.
Similar to what I found at Goodwill.
(We have a small to medium sized dog, so it would work for us, we don’t get super huge bags of food any ways, now if we had a large dog, this probably wouldn’t work as well.) I will definitely be taking pictures of what it looks like now and when I get it finished, it isn’t even done and I am already proud of it! So you saw the tin right? I would cover that in a heart beat! (If it had penguins on it, no way would I touch it LOL). In my next post, I will show you what it looks like now.
Back to what I was talking about, see this is what happens, I get off track and that is why there are piles!! GRRR….maybe tonight I should put together my piles into the baskets/crates that I have for them…maybe…
Eventually I will have a bigger home and will be able to have my ideal craft room/office…eventually, insert sigh.
