Oh, the Shame of It!!!!!

It is with great shame that I am posting pictures of my sewing room and adjacent annex.

Ever since moving last June, I've not really ever managed to get it set up in a way that works and flows well. However, with the latest furniture shifting, I think I this layout may be close.

The sewing annex section (over the garage "bonus room") houses not only sewing stuff, but other craft supplies and all of the vintage jewelery, accessories, games, toys and pop culture things I covet. With no structure in place, it's turned into a dumping ground.

I've made a few efforts over the last several months to sort it out by purchasing little shelves for under my sewing table and long shelving racks on the low/apex walls of the annex section (DH hung those for me).

The whole area is stifling me. I've done nothing this last week because I walk in and don't know where to begin. AND, my fabric haul from Louise's auction isn't even in here! It's been sorted into categories on the big table in my basement until I can wash/treat it and bring it up.

Hopefully these shameful pictures will motivate me into getting my back side in gear. I've just printed off labels for plastic storage bins that need sorting through. I thought that would be a good starting point.

I also need to address lighting, but I'll do that after it's organized.

It's a great space. I can relate with the not knowing where to start when things have piled up. I bet you'll get it all cleaned up in no time.

I always feel a deep sense of relief when I see photos of others' sewing rooms - mine looks the same!

You can do it! Just tackle one task at a time. And is that a Snow White dress I see hanging there?

That is an awesome sewing room even if it stifles you.

Ah, so when do we get to see the updated and improved version, Kelllie?

Feel no shame my dear. My crafting area looks the same way. (Sadly without the adorable fuzzy helpers, though.)
