Organized Chaos

Everybody has a place to put all their junk. In some homes, it's a drawer. Sometimes it's a closet. Since we moved, we have had a whole room for this. Which also happened to be my craft room.

Everything had a place, and I could usually find anything I was looking for, but it looks like a disaster zone.

These graphic images are not the for the feint of heart, or for neat freaks.

My Messy Craft Room

These are most of our books. These piles are organized by size, which was actually a really good way to organize them.

This is my craft/study bookcase, and some boxes in the middle of the room.

Desk covered in junk, and more junk.

Even more junk.

And the closet. Notice how it's nearly empty. That desk was supposed to be my sewing desk. I never used it for that.

The room looked like this from the time we moved in until my sister moved in almost a year later. When she moved in, we had to combine my husband's office and mine.

Now, the room looks more like this

Clean(ish) Office

Now the junk is contained to a closet. The blue boxes are my stash, and the board next to it is my blocking board.

and I have a desk to study on

and all of my craft supplies are in this awesome shelf that hubby got me. I had a smaller shelf before, but it kept falling apart. This one is supposed to hold 900 pounds. It should be able to hold all of my supplies.

Oh, that was fun! I love all those photos and transformation from chaos toward organization. The last photo of your craft shelf is awesome! It's like a "seek & find" game...
