Sometimes those plans work out. Sometimes those lists get checked off.
Just yesterday I discovered something about myself that I should have figured out long ago. I must have a visible plan to get it off the ground. It has to be sketched out for it to be real enough to move forward.
For example: The Craft Room in the Basement. I have been dreaming of such a thing for many, many months/years/decades. Yes, decades. The plans have all been in my head. They change frequently. They never get off the ground.
Last night I put pencil to paper and started to Draw A Floor Plan. I don’t have the exact dimensions of the space just yet but I needed to get the ideas on paper for me to get motivated to do something.
Clearing out all the junk and organizing the rest now has real meaning for me.
A week or so ago I found this awesome blog where this person planned out everything in her craft room down to the drawer and cabinet contents. She had detailed photos of each drawer. It was amazing! Can I find that site now? No!
I do more than knit. I also paint, sew, cross-stitch, make jewelry, bead, use polymer clay, play with paper, draw, stamp and probably other things that I can’t remember right now but have the “stuff” that goes with it.
If you know of any great craft room design blogs or photos, please leave a link in the comments so I can check them out.
