Now I've given this blog post a title I have the theme for The Littlest Hobo in my head - well done me!
MrP collects retro video games, and works at home more than I do, so when deciding what to put in the spare room, his office and his video game collection won, meaning my desk was relagated to the space about 2 paces away from the cat litter tray. As well as having to work on the Poop Desk, I also had no space to put my crafty bits and bobs.
To be fair to MrP, I didn't have any when we moved in - it seems domestic bliss has been partially responsible for the increase in my crafty tendencies. A few months after moving in (and increasing exponentially!) I suddenly had this collection of sewing stuff, jewellery making bits, glue and paint and it just sat everywhere in piles - on the dining room table, on the sofa, on the coffee table. Seeing as I am The Messy One (MrP is The Funny One according to him) anyway, the place looked like someone had set off a bomb in Hobbycraft and left it.
So, pity finally convinced MrP to help me fetc h and build a micro craft room for my stuff from Ikea...et voila!
It's just a start, as things could be organised much more effectively, but the fact that I have somewhere to put everything makes me immensely happy and it actually now forms a bit of a barrier between my desk and the now-slightly-relocated cat litter tray!
What is your crafty space like? Do you have a whole room or a little corner like me? I'd love to see some links to some real life crafty spaces if you've blogged about them :)
