Project Craft Table!

Hey Friends!  Happy ‘almost’ Friday! Hope your week is going well! We had a ‘faux’ snow day for NO snow…  Honestly, I am not kidding. There were threats of us getting 1 inch…  I know my hometown Ohio friends are laughing.  But no one wants to have another ATL ‘Snowpocolypse’ event like we had 4 years ago, so the governor closed all offices which led to all schools closing.   So yesterday was spent catching up,  running kids to activities earlier due to threats of a possible another ‘faux’ snow day coming in, kids asking all day for food, and then no snow🤷🏻‍♀️ But the kids enjoyed the FREE day.

I am on a roll over here organizing one area at a time.  So far I have organized the following areas:

Project China/Liquor Cabinet!

Project Laundry!

Project Pantry!!

Today is all about my craft table.  Did you know I used to be into scrapbooking?  I had a friend that invited me to a scrapbooking night 10 years ago.  I was intrigued because I had so many pictures in folders on my computer but never did anything with them.  I attended on a Friday night, and totally fell in love with it!  The lady that hosted the scrapbooking events would do one Friday/Saturday a month.  She was a creative memories rep.  She had a group of women that would come to her house and we would scrapbook for 5 hours on a Friday night or from 9 – 5 pm on a Saturday. She did this one weekend a month.   It was so much fun.  My kids were little at the time and it was a great way for me to get out of the house while Karl took over and I was putting our pictures into books.   I have several books filled for all the kids, family, our wedding, honeymoon etc.    Here are a few samples of my scrapbooking capabilities.

I really loved it but as the kids got older it got harder to get away as activities came up and they got busier.  So my scrapbooking came to a hault for many years. I tried to do it at home hence this small nook, but just didn’t have the time.  Since I have not done any scrapbooking for several years, it has turned into a catch all for all ‘craft’ supplies, kids art and pictures.  Here is what I started with.

Not horrible, a little bit of organization, but still needed a good clean out.

I took out all the stuff:

And here is the after:

That table is actually a very old singer sewing machine that sits in the cabinet.  It is old and I cannot part with it just yet.  For now it makes a great table and fits perfectly in this nook. When I am not using this area, I just pull the curtains that I hung with a shower rod.

Once again, I used my steps for cleaning out an area:

Another area done!  The craft table project has now turned into this next project:  Project kids art and school photos.  I’m still reviewing apps to use to capture and organize it all.  Stay tuned!

What areas are you working on?  I have heard from so many of you about how you are #tidyingup your spaces and I think it’s awesome!  Keep at it!  #oneprojectatatime
