New Year & a Re-Vamp

For some un-known reason to me last night I decided I wanted to change my craft room around. It's actually not a room as such it's an area, it should be where the dining table is, a normal person would have put their dining table in here, but I am not all that normal and HAVE to have my Craft Space, and my Craft stash has by far out-grown the box in the cupboard. Anyway .... after the kids went to bed I put my muscles into action and started heaving furniture around and got stuck in a corner and woke up with several bruises this morning! I have done this once before at night when we lived in Pukekohe, you can read about it HERE. But at least then I had Jason to help me move the furniture around! At 12.30am I tattled off to bed with the most major pieces of furniture moved and the place looking semi done. I heard Riley say when he got up this morning "Holy" which is what he says when something amazes or surprises him at the moment, word of the moment I guess lol. I spent the rest of my child free time during the day sorting and tidying and putting away. And now just over 24 hours after I started my Craft Space is done .. and I LOVE it!! So here are the Pics

BEFORE .. and rather messy I might say! You can also see more pictures HERE




DURING .. when I was thinking OMG and was trapped in a corner for a while and had to climb under the table to get to the light switch when it started getting dark!!!





The way I left it when I went to bed this morning!






AFTER .. it looks sooooo good!!!! I Love it!





As I was re-arranging and tidying I also did a HUGE clear out, made a list of all my UFOs and my goal is to get them ALL finished! So now I'm off to start one hmmmm which shall I do!!!?????
