My crafting supplies are packed into various boxes and moved from room to room depending on which room is free. I have my desk in our bedroom. An old bureau I bought off of eBay for £40 about 8 years ago. I was going to write a novel at it, or so i thought when I purchased it. This was a long long time before my crafting journey begun.
The bureau has undergone a number of chalk paint makeovers during it's time with us and has been placed in just about every room in the house but is currently in our bedroom. Unfortunately Mr H works shifts and so my creative space often needs to become my dining table. This results in me tip toeing into our room to retrieve which ever piece of equipment I have forgotten this time!
The dining table is far from ideal. My children are like newborns and so need feeding roughly every 40 minutes, I have no sooner unpacked all my crafting supplies and someone needs to sit at the table to eat and so I repack them and then the cycle starts again.
I think every parent with children in lock down must have had a double in their food bill. I just can not seem to fill them.
I stare out of the patio window at the tiny playhouse at the bottom of the garden. I could buy myself a shed!! A shed I hear you all sigh. Yes don't worry I talked myself out of that one, too damp, dark and full of spiders. But it did get me thinking.
It was my son who suggested sorting the garage. As I moaned and packed away for the billionth time that hour. He even offered to help!!!
And so our Saturday task was born
|Never Knew We Kept So Much Junk|
As you can see it took some clearing and we did not find any treasure. The most interesting thing my son found was a dead mouse which of course distracted his attention away from the task at hand. I mean how could tidying up compete with a dead mouse!
