Organizing My Craft Room

I'm linking up with Heaven is a Bookstore

for Manifest Monday

What are you waiting for? 
Visit Heaven is a Bookstore to see what it's all about and link up!

We have a room in our house dedicated to exercise, crafts and storage. It's a small room, but we have it jam packed with stuff. It holds the Crossbow exercise machine, the treadmill, Ab Roller and exercise ball, a tall skinny bureau with drawers full of beach towels that holds the TV, a bookcase of knitting books and magazines, my sewing machine and knitting machine, and several shelf units stuffed with scrapbooking supplies and yarn.

I finally spent a day in there last week organizing.
Boy, does it feel good!

When I'm on the treadmill, this is what I see ...

Yikes, right? As fast as I ran on that stupid treadmill, I couldn't get away from the mess! Once I pulled everything off the shelves, sorted, discarded and reorganized, here are my after pictures ...

hubby hung cork boards over the sewing machine
(mom, did you notice the sewing machine cover?)
scrapbooking supplies and equipment
yarn, yarn and more yarn
my knitting needles are in a beer stein next to the TV
more scrapbooking supplies in rolling carts
now that I know where everything is,
it's time to get busy

I can't imagine how stressful that would be to be working out (which is hard enough) and be looking at that stuff. Good for you! Looks great and ready to play. Thanks for participating. Guess I'll go back to Martha Monday til I think of a better title. lol

That must feel so good. It makes me feel accomplished just looking at it! And I'm jealous at all your fitness equipment. Sounds like a great place to work out.
