The Craft Room: The Whole Story

Hello, friends. Can I call you friends? Cronies? Pals? You know I love you, right?

Like, really, really love you?

I’m ready to prove it now. Are you ready?

*deep breath*

I am ready to show you…the entire craft room. In all its glory.

Just keepin’ it real, folks. I have BAGS of foam, waiting to be turned into cute little poufs and chairs and whatever else I can think of to fill. I have scads of fabric waiting to be made into quilts, and armfuls of old clothes waiting to be made into new clothes for smaller people. I have wrapping paper, and detritus from a childhood of pack-ratting…and this is where all the magic happens. But can’t you just see the potential in there? Once the boxes are dealt with? And the fabric is folded? And the kids can be convinced to stop rifling through my gear, looking for their crayons?

I have to admit, I’m a little leery of this room. I’m afraid that by the time I get it Just Right…there will be a new little LoLo, and he’ll swoop in and take over my craft room. Isn’t that silly?? It’s ok…maybe the little LoLo will prefer Daddy’s Den!

(PS – No, I’m not pregnant. No, I’m not trying to be pregnant right now. That is all. Carry on.)

...but don't you think Ming Wai and Siu Jeun would do well sharing a room together? I think Ming Wai would sleep better :)

Yeah, I think Daddy's Den should be the first room to go. Keep that crafting room, hold onto it with BOTH hands. I have a closet. I tiny one, and I'm lucky to have that. :)

I agree, kids sharing rooms is a good thing. Then again, a baby stays in our room until they can roll over and then it's off to the crib.

I don't know what you were worried about! It looks like most craft rooms - only tidier. LOL. Mine is still in boxes... can't wait to get it all set up! This unpack is taking FOREVER. Three weeks is forever right??
