Day 9 - Craft Area

Today's challenge was supposed to be "toys"... but I have 2 kids with 2 messy rooms, so I'd definitely need more than 1 afternoon to tackle that job.  Plus, I'd really like to buy some containers for all of the legos, action figures, etc.  SO, as suggested I did MY area instead.  My yarn/crafts are kinda like my toys anyway, right?  So here's the "before" photo...


As you can see, the yarn in the bins is pretty well organized.  The pile of laundry on my glider & the random piles of crap on the tops of the yarn bins have been there for MONTHS.  I sorted through all of the papers and the photographs & organized them (or tossed some).  I put the stray yarn balls into their correct drawers.  I folded & put away ALL of the laundry... some will go to Goodwill b/c it was sitting there so long, it doesn't fit the kids anymore.  D'oh!  I threw away that ripped pillow.  Why was I keeping that?!?  And here's the "after" photo....


That box over by the window is the sewing machine I got for my birthday (August)... I don't really have anywhere to put it, so I'm keeping it safely in the box until I get the proper craft room I deserve.
