I was challenged by Amber at Blurrzone to show you all my craftspace. Well, here you go--in all it's organized chaos! LOL I have a wonderful craft space. For years I did all my crafting and sewing on the dining room table--which is where we eat! So every time I'd start something, I would have to allow time to clean everything up before meal time--SUCH A PAIN! Plus, the kids were small and I had to put everything away, I mean AWAY! so they couldn't get into it. I swear I would actually talk myself out of crafting some days just because I wouldn't want to hassle with it all. My sweety pie finally decided to save me, yeah!! He told me he was going to make me a small space in the basement for my very own. Sigh, my hero! Now I want you all to understand something here, this was no small undertaking. We live in a house that was built in 1901--and the basement is nothing but a basement. It has a furnace, oil tank, hot water heater, concrete floor, huge bluestones (big, uncut rocks!) for the walls, and pipes and big rafters overhead that were full of peeling paint. He went down there and ended up turning half of our big basement into my craftroom---HALF! It's huge! He scraped all the peeling paint off of those old rafters, primed and painted all those big bluestone rocks, he put up a wall and added lots of electrical outlets so I can plug in all my stuff. Put in a bunch of shelving...it goes on and on. He even put a stereo in there with speakers in the corners so I can work with good surround sound music! I even have my little TV/VCR so I can watch my favorite shows while I work. All together, he spent almost 2 full months making that room for me--and I still appreciate it so much. It is a big cluttered, colorful, warm room and I love it!
