However, each January I do embark on a very thorough nest cleaning and reorganizing. Ahem, my "studio" is always in need of a major revamping after the flurry of holiday activity and thanks to my mother's crafty gifts and gift certificates I often have new stuff that I need to find room for. Well this year I didn't just straighten, I undertook an all-out room reorg. I share my nest with the girls' playroom/craft area in a huge finished bonus room over our garage. Before now all of "my stuff" was sort of in the middle of the room, on the largest wall (I KNOW I have a picture of my area before, but of course I can't find it anywhere, next up organize pictures on hard drive). Now I have rearranged things so that I have a whole corner and really half of the room to myself. Everything is within reach and I even got my rulers hung on the wall, something I've been meaning to do for ages. Jay says that when I wear my pink sweatpants and shirt he can't even find me over in my nook (he says this to pester me, the pink walls drive me crazy but the girls are emphatic that I am never allowed to paint over them. We'll see about that.). Of course by the time I took this picture I was well into my first project of the year, so it isn't so neat anymore, but just being able to see some of the table is quite impressive!
This is the rest of the room... now all over there:
And here is a peak at what I am busy working on... love these Laurel Burch jungle prints. Loved them so much that the 7 year old is getting a new wall hanging for her jungle themed room just for the heck of it.
