Since we moved here nearly 3 years ago, the majority of our boxes are unpacked. There are still maybe 20 boxes that have been opened, but not unpacked because there is no where to put them. Those boxes are full of crafty items. My sewing machine got unpacked because it gets used fairly often, but I've had to put a lot of other crafts on hold. I had plans for a craft room, but then the budget happened and we had to watch our spending and buying stuff for a craft room just didn't take priority. So when I wanted to make something, I had to dig through a box and figure out where everything was, then when the project was finished, I had to either put them back in the box or find a place for the materials.
There was a very good sale on storage cabinets and we used just a little bitty part of our tax refund to buy some cabinets. I am SO excited at the prospect of finally finding a home for all the crafting materials and not putting projects off because it was too much hassle to pull out of the boxes.
We bought 3 cabinets, and 2 are put together so far. They're pressed wood, which is not my first choice, but I priced the real wood stuff and that was wayyyyy out of our price bracket. It's either spend $40 on a pressed wood cabinet or let my crafting stuff languish in boxes for who knows how long!
Tomorrow, I go and get my Mom and bring her up for 5 days! I am going to keep her busy with the kids, so I can get busy and unpack my craft boxes! Yay! I'll take a picture of the finished cabinets after I've unloaded everything into them! I can hardly contain my excitement! I probably won't be posting much while Mom is here, so have a good week!
