There goes goal #6!

One thing I REALLY, REALLY want is a kick-ass workspace. I've dreamed about my new craft room in our new house, and in my mind, it's gorgeous! Filled with oodles of organization! Well, I can't wait any longer. I have to start planning and preparing.

The other day I went to IKEA to pick up a decent sized work table. It's perfect. Black-brown table top with adjustable legs. I wanted something counter-height because I like being able to stand and work, especially when cutting paper. Well, I also want a desk-height work table to set my sewing machine on, and for those days where I have to cut 1,000 sheets and standing just isn't in me. I think I'm going to buy another table. Who really wants to adjust the legs every time I get tired and want to sit? So I'm going to pick one up this weekend.

Another purchase in my quest for organization has me giddy with joy! I picked this bad boy up off of ebay, and it is going to rock my world.


Sure, it's simple. But to have my papers so readily available instead of packed away in boxes...well, I can't explain my excitement!

I'm trying to get my room organized too. We even got a storage building to help move not often needed stuff to an area outside of our FULL closets, but I'm still in the process of packing up stuff. Hopefully I'll be done with my commission soon and I can focus on my studio more and get my new sewing machine up & running!!

Good luck! Having a well-organized space is so fulfilling...

I'm with you on the organization too! I have all my sewing/paper/other craft junk in our basement and I've always wanted to have a nice set up down there so I don't have to drag everything up to the dining room. This is the year!
