I haven’t finished the bath mat yet. It’s still in the same shape as when I posted about it. But I’m simultaneously trying to get the craft area in the laundry room under control.

Craft area in the laundry room? Yeah… I’m SUPER lucky. In the office, I have a sewing table set up, but for other crafts, my husband put up these shelves in the laundry room for me. I store my fabric and notions in here too (while sewing TOOLS are in my sewing area), and I have a desktop where I can decoupage or hot glue without worrying about making a little mess.


But it’s kind of unusable if it looks like a tornado whipped through it… and that’s how it’s been the last few months. I would take out fabric for a project, or a tool I needed, and by the time I finished the project, everything just ended up piled on the desk in there… and things escalated from there. So I’m beating it into submission.


I’ve gotten all my fabric back where it belongs, reorganized a few things and labeled some boxes properly, and gotten rid of some extraneous stuff… and it’s looking a lot better already. NOT finished yet, but getting there. And it’s making me more excited for projects again. It’s hard to be inspired in a space that is messy or unusable.

  2. Wow, that is awesome. I have a question as new Thirty-One consultant, what do you use your thirty-one tote for?

  3. Your before even looks better than anything I’ve got going on. I just wish I had a spare room! I know it’s exciting to make progress 😉

  4. I like how you’ve displayed the fabric! Do you wrap it around something first?
