September is a wonderful month. To me, it's a new beginning month, perhaps even more so than January. (I was a nerdy child who looked forward to school every year!) And, being in between projects, I need a new start for my craft room/office. In fact, I need to find my craft room! Walking into it makes me want to turn around and walk right out. And, I certainly don't want to invite anyone into it!
I've been working on a book for the last three months (more about that when I can share!), so there are the remains of designs and boxes of craft materials littering the floor. But, more than the mess, there's a lack of unity in the space. It needs some color or theme to tie it all together.
So, I'm looking for ideas. What have you done with your craft room/studio that you like? How have you organized your space? What tips do you have?
One thing I have decided (besides that I need to toss, recycle and donate a lot of stuff) is to paint a very, large dark brown cabinet. First of all it needs a coat of white, then I'll decide on a color. That ought to help the light in the room, too. This cabinet sits right in front of my table, so I think I'll add some kind of inspiration board so that I can pin up ideas and designs. So, that's what I'm doing this weekend--appropriate for Labor Day! Then, I can get back to crafting in my clean and organized room!
Have a great weekend!
