Today I am taking part in Tongue in Cheek Tuesday... Junk in our Trunks link party! My good blog buddies Mel from Mellywood's Mansion and Danni from Silo Hill Farm have
twisted my arm encouraged me to share my junk, as they co-host with 3 other awesome bloggers...
Today I'm gonna show you my craft area...I'm usually a neat freak but lets just say...not so much at the moment!!!
We have a little house as I've mentioned before and my craft space is pretty much in full view of our everyday lives....
Right.... Jumping straight into the horror...
My craft cupboard....those drawers are full! But lets have a little looky at the crap on top...
My phone - yup thats fine. The Sky TV remote.... not the right place and dont know why its here.
A mouse and keyboard for Sean's computer and some computer stuff... dumped there by the man himself... Some projects I'm working on....Ugly!! An eyesore!!! Oh look my camera's instruction manual - yeah that's a great spot for it!
Right next to the craft cupboard... my beachy side table with my sewing machine stacked on top of it!
That book shoved down the side is my sewing machine's instruction manual. See a pattern here people???
Right next to the machine, a bucket of thread... and some beads balancing on top.... There's my little drawer system for storing my created jewelry pieces and yes that's a princess crown on the floor! right next to the foot of the sewing machine is the cover for it... Hmmm.... not good!
Next stop... the dining table... not too bad I guess -there you can see my bead soup that I'm working on...
But lets look a little closer at the COMPUTER that's sitting on the table!!!! Its been there for 2 months! That's 8 WEEKS!!! What is the man doing????Anyhoo.....right behind me is my storage chest...and yes that's sewing that's sitting there NOT being done, a storage box for said sewing, which is stacked in a cardboard box instead....I guess I've left it for now because I want to paint that chest soon. A bag of books and the box for the slip and slide all balancing on top! Nice!
Lets end the horror here shall we?... this is Gabe's entertainment centre - he has his gaming consoles in the cupboard and the computer.... but looky on the floor!
At first the "Thursday" threw me--I thought maybe you were time traveling--then I remembered that Melly is down your direction, where it IS Thursday! Thanks for linking up--it's nice to know I'm not the only one with a mess!ReplyDelete
Thanks Kirby. This time difference drives me nuts lol...and I'm 2 hours ahead of Mel too, but at least we can still chat while the rest of our blog buddies sleep. xxx NatDelete
Oh Natalie! You are so funny! I long ago lost my camera AND my sewing machine manuals..at least you have yours! I'm worried about those precariously perched beads in that first pic!! Whoever said a dining table was for eating, obviously wasn't a crafter!! Or a computer guru!! Of course Gabe doesn't use that fabulous cabinet you made....the floor is apparently trendier these days. I love that you have a storage box for your sewing...sitting next to the sewing!!! LOL!! Thanks for linking up girl...you're a riot!ReplyDelete
Aw Danni that dining table is awful! That computer is till there...grrrrr. And tomorrow - I promise - that sewing is being packed into the storage box!Delete
I have come to the conclusion IF I even had a dedicated space for crafting, I'd still haul it to the dining room table. I know no other way!ReplyDelete
Its because its so comfy at the dining table and you can spread the junk far and wide...am I right? Thanks for stopping by Bliss xxx NatDelete
Well neat freak, cheer up that looks pretty good since you only have a small space and 3 kids. Oh junk it's out to get us all. Thanks for joining in, I love this post xxooReplyDelete
Hehe thanks hun - it is looking a little better - tomorrow I pack the chest, I'm done with that mess!Delete
I reclaimed my dining table a few years back and have been fighting to keep it for it's intended purpose ever since. I think males are genetically predisposed to see dining tables as storage areas.ReplyDelete
As for the gaming systems--they are electronic octopuses that grow and shed continuously! I will be sorry when my youngest moves out on his own in the coming year, but I will NOT miss his computer/gaming stuff. My biggest fear is that he will not take all of it with him!
If its not my husband then its my daughter - she loves that table!!! Oh tell me about all the computer stuff - secretly I wish I could throw the whole lot out!. All the best with your son moving out xxx NatDelete
I love this party - my favorite find in your pics, the princess crown :) Everything looks pretty organized...for what feels like chaos for you! The computer on the table for 8 weeks...hahaha, let us know how long it's takes for him to move it! I love seeing where you create your beautiful jewelry! Thanks for the fun share, Nat!ReplyDelete
Mary that computer is still sitting there - grrrr! And thankfully I picked up the princess crown - it was annoying me lol.Delete
Nat, I am so excited to finally see your sewing machine!! I've got a quilting b in mind!!! Love it!ReplyDelete
Darn sewing machine - doesn't love me like my old one did!Delete
Nathalie I'm laughing out LOUD - you're hilarious - this has been so much fun reading these link ups!ReplyDelete
BEAD soup sounds delicious LOL
Thanks SO much for linking up -
Thanks Suzan, I've enjoyed reading the links to, in between racing around repositioning all my crap in a mad attempt to tidy up...yeah, didnt happen! Please stop by in Mid April to check out my bead soup creations - I'm excited!!! xx NatDelete
Stopping by all the blogs taking part in the bead soup blog party. Cant wait to see what you make!ReplyDelete
I've finished all my pieces - can you believe it? Thanks for stopping by xx NatDelete
Hi Natalie, I have many similar concoctions of junk at my house, perhaps with a slightly different recipe on each grouping, but I can definitely relate! Especially on the "sitting there for 8 weeks" kinda thing. It's still worth it though, right? And I love your craft cupboard!! AmyReplyDelete
Thanks Amy - that craft cupboard was a labour of love and the kids love sticking their dirty kid feet all over it...sigh!Delete
But I suppose that's okay compared to the hot mess of the rest of the area xx Nat
Too funny! My craft room looks about like that right now and it was perfectly pristine a few months ago after a makeover. I love your craft cupboard! Power tools on the dining table? Why not? You never know when you might have to DIY some dinner to go with the bead soup first course. This was really fun to read Natalie! I'm now a follower!ReplyDelete
Tuula - only problem with the power tools, is that they're not for my use! Thank you so much for following xx NatDelete
This is a very moderate amount of junk you have there dear Natalie :-). I love these peaks into your daily life, makes me feel like i can pop over and visit xxReplyDelete
Haha Jutta - its not moderate for me - I like - no junk!! I wish you could pop over for a visit xxxDelete
