To prove it (the number of "single things, AND the fact that each one has a place), I have taken some photos. Don't be afraid. There will be no great, thunderous avalanche of materials if you make too loud a step. I even vacuumed in there and didn't kill the vacuum cleaner. It's a Christmas Miracle.
You can click on the photos to enlarge and see detail. I know there's it's a lot of visual clutter...but my aim is to get it all where I can use it, not a spread in House Beautiful. We'll start the tour with a shot from the doorway.
|The entry into my little Queendom.|
|The painting/sculpting side of the work table.|
|Always remove closet doors and throw them in the attic. You'll have better access to the storage.|
|All things sewing-related. Trims, thread, buttons, lace, elastic, bias tape, etc., etc., etc.|
|The sewing side of the table. (Sewing stuff in previous photo is behind the chair.)|
|The cutting and ironing table. I haven't seen this surface in six months or more. Sad but true.|
|I stood on a stool to get this shot. A thing of beauty.|
|The hubs built the table so I could fit stacked bins under it...but these Walmart shelves just happen to fit too! These are stamps, stuffing pellets, and Styrofoam for doll heads.|
|Hats, hair and wig-making supplies, shoes and shoe-making supplies, patterns, and accessories.|
|The Great Walls O'Fabric. This is my upper body workout...those bins are heavy.|
|That little set of white shelves is full of beading and jewelry and such...very useful.|
|I love paint. This is my happiest place.|
|I never knew a serger could be so useful!|
|From the sewing seat, looking out the door...and the end of the tour. Thanks for visiting!|
I have one primary goal for the new year...but it is a two-fold goal: to keep this room in the condition it is in these photos, and to learn to apply the same dedication and organization to the PAPERWORK side of my business. That's all the challenge I can handle in one year.
Y'all have a fabulous New Year!
