This past week I was very busy changing a guest room (because who really needs that) into a craft room. My daughter left for college 3 years ago and hasn’t looked back since. My son just graduated from high school and although he has chosen to commute to a school, we know it’s just a matter of time before he also flies from the nest. Although it is sad to see my kids grow and move into the adult world, I am excited for the prospect of finally having a craft room! Sorry kids but your rooms have become the new “guest” rooms. Let’s face it, we only have guests a few times a year and it is usually just my parents. A craft room on the other hand, would be utilized on a daily basis. So you see kids, this is the right thing to do. You will always have a place in my home but you may have to share it with Grandma and Grandpa if they are visiting at the same time.
As for the photo above, I found myself sorting lots of little gems and colorful items this week as I moved into my new craft room (I just love saying my new craft room). The colors and the containers I bought were just too pretty and shiny and new not to snap a quick photo.
