So, obviously, I have been quiet here. I have a lot going on, most of which will probably never make the face of this blog, but will eventually make it to my personal blog in one form or another. Today, though, I want to talk a little bit about how to set up a craft area in my room.
Right now, I have my storage bench in there to hold stuff (plus 2 big wicker baskets. And a three shelf rolling cart. Oh, and an old microwave cart. But, HEY! There is zero craft stuff in my living room. Unless you count hocks. And the yarn for same. Sigh. Oh well, back to my POINT!! Which is a craft area in my room. Right now, I have CF lights in the overhead, plus 2 lamps. The thing is, my curtains are heavy, and I get no actual sunlight in there. It’s great for sleeping, but not so much for crafting. Or putting on makeup for that matter. Should I get lighter curtains and rely on shutters to deal with the light when I don’t want it? I have long toyed with the idea of wood blinds, and here in hurricane alley, shutters actually serve a useful function, ykwim? I like these Charlotte Shutters from Inviting Home, but I’d want them for the whole house.
As for containing the stuff, aside from using it up and then not buying so much, I don’t know what to do. There’s only so much prettifying you can do, even with decorative hardware. But in order to use it up, I have to actually craft, which isn’t much happening for me lately. Sigh.
