Sometime I get in a particular mood which causes me to get very cranky about things. This crankiness most clearly manifests itself in an urge to reorganize things. Sometimes it's the pantry or the medicine cabinet. Today it was craft supplies.
A big part of the problem is that Rebecca's sewing and craft supplies had found themselves shoved into every single container in her room. Unfortunately this meant that we had to empty all of those containers onto Rebecca's bed and sort through all of her things. This led to organizing the books on her shelf and thinning out the stuffed animal herd.
Once I had collected all of the embroidery thread, felt, glue sticks, sewing needles and ribbons I took them downstairs and got to work. It was very soothing.
Remember this awesome cubbyhole thing I found on the curb this fall?
It has a new life.
Come spring I'll paint it white. I'd love to find some boxes that would fit in perfectly. I could cover them in pretty paper. Maybe oatmeal boxes are the right sizes... I'll have to grocery shop with an eye on product, price and box size!
The real question is how long the children will obey my new reign of craft organization tyranny. Stay tuned!
