From this.......

.....to this!

The end of my bed. My fabric/wool stash has been moved so my lovely giraffe can now sit here.

In front of my wardrobe. These craft supplies have also been moved so I can now open the door!

Down my side of the bed. The piles of boxes have been replaced with shelves from Ikea so now all the craft supplies are in one place. It's not ideal having all this in my bedroom but there is just nowhere else to put it and I can't have my bedroom looking like it was anymore. My fabric is now in nice neat piles, the wool is in 5!! boxes, ribbons, etc are in boxes, Christmas crafts/materials are kept together in boxes - all-in-all it is much better.
So this is how I've been keeping myself busy the last few days.

It looks great. Everything's so much nicer and calmer when it's organised isn't it? Bet you're tired now, have a nice cup of tea & put your feet up :) xx

Oh wow, how lovely to have it so tidy. My various stashes were all over the place and I had trouble finding things I know I have. I have started trying to organise it now though and it's in boxes but all mixed up and needs more sorting.
Bet it feels good to look at it all organised.

Ooh, I love a good sort out! It's so much nicer to have things in their proper place so you can see what you've got quickly. Good job!!

What a lovely job you've done - want to come over??
Lol seeing that first pic - I have a stack similar to that a few feet from my bed, . . . got a lovely shelf at our Habitat 're-store' for crafts, & got a layer of paint on, still need to get it in place (& up the stairs, so need some help!)
How good it must feel to have it organized, & it does look great!

Thanks for the lovely comments everyone. It feels much better to have reclaimed the bedroom floor - just need to do the rest of the house ;-).

I would be very honoured to be on your blog list Gina, thank you.
