Craft goddess I am not

I am so not crafty by any stretch of the imagination. I do go on tangents though where every once and awhile I forget this small tidbit of information about myself and decide I’m going to just jump head first into a project and hope for the best.
Why is it that I never really learn my lesson? Apparently bright is something else I am not. It’s not that the finished project doesn’t turn out. In fact eventually it does. Eventually in my case though is a very very long time. Good grief! Take Barb’s beautiful Santa Stars for instance. When she first posted her tutorial (I can’t find the link anymore, sorry) she made it look so easy I thought for sure I could easily whip one up all in one evening. HA HA HA, ummm that would be a big fat NO. I got that little sucker done all right but about a couple of weeks later. Really I’m pathetic, my girlfriend will tell you it’s just downright painful to watch me.
This year I’ve so far managed to outsmart my clever little know it not so much all self and went ahead and purchased those gorgeous little ornaments directly from Barb’s Shoppe. Really sometimes things are just better left to the professionals.
So as you can imagine a craft room I do not have in my home. It’s best for everyone if I just BACK AWAY FROM THE CRAFTS and then no one gets hurt. However the thought of having a craft room if for no other reason except to organize all the craft supplies well now that is something dreams are made of. In fact I swear that is the only reason I ever considered myself a “scrapbooker”. Oh the glorious and wonderful supplies. The supplies that all need homes to be tucked into at night. It gives me goose bumps just thinking about it.
So although I don’t have any crafts or sewing supplies to organize myself I do want to help you with yours. But first we need to talk about what we’re up against.
Hands up to those who have a designated craft/sewing space? Hands up to those who don’t but wished they did. Hands up to those whose spaces might not be so organized but yet you really really wished they were. And of course we most definitely want to hear it from the ladies who spaces are of the orderly variety and what the heck you are doing to keep them that way!
And to all the other not so crafty girls everywhere, you are safe here.
