While we move everything around, our upstairs sunporch has become the depository for yarn, wool, fabric, books, stationary, musical instruments, outgrown clothes, renovation and painting tools, etcetera.
Today's big step was to go up there, and start organizing. My yarn stash has been in bins since we moved in almost 2 years ago, and is showing signs of the many times I've ransacked it looking for something specific. The resultant little baskets of bits and bobs seem to be multiplying. So today I started putting it all together again, in hopes of eventually having it sorted in a permanent home (the studio!). Other bins are being filled with fabric, notions, UFOs (too many to mention here), and so on.
I also started (with giddy excitement) a bin for a yard sale. Homesteadboy and I will split the proceeds and put them towards whatever we want (a luxury when on a budget like ours)...this is great motivation for me to part with the STUFF I've held onto for years.
In the footsteps of my friend Ammerins, I have dubbed myself a procrasticleaner. But it's time to make this house a place that is simple, clean, and organized (as much as it can be with, as I've said, two creative parents and three small children in it!)
What progress are you making towards creating a space you love?
