If you’re following me on twitter, you may have heard me mention that I’m doing that thing where you run out of space and decide to buy a bunch of bins. Lucky for me, I have a husband who sees right through this tactic, so I had to make a very good case about how I was going to use them before he would agree to it. I do not claim to have it all figured out yet, but looking at this pile of tubs and dividers gives me some hope.
I’m knee deep into my next project, so I’m not sure when I’ll squirrel away the time to arrange everything. However, I’m getting some very strong nudges from the husband department in that direction – so I am thinking it will be sooner rather than later. I’m planning to try this fabric storage method and see if that helps with the chaos going on in the big gray wardrobe. (Anyone with fabric storage tips? Would love to hear them!)
Every time I’m arranging fabric, I think about that day when some bolts of my very own will arrive. (In the future, people! One day!) But it’s good to leave a little spot for them, right?
I have paper wrangling issues, too. I used a gift card and picked up this acrylic file holder on sale at The Container Store. I am still a hopelessly old school – pencil to paper - kind of girl when it’s time to plan. All of my designs start out on sheets of recycled computer paper. I have a few nicer sketchbooks too and I do use them, but I still like the freedom of a fresh piece of paper that isn’t attached to anything.
I don’t even want to bring up the photo studio I’m trying to build in here either. The room is big, but not that big. This is definitely a multitasking space. Now to get back to earning my keep… more soon.
