A place for everything and everything in it's place

I dream of a tidy house. It's one of those ambitions that I don't think I will ever be able to realise. As a mother, I can no longer put something down and expect it to be there when I come back to get it. To cut to the chase, no matter how long I spend tidying up and cleaning, I am constantly surrounded by mess and chaos. I am slowing trying to take over one of the rooms in my house as a craft room. I love looking at the stunning photographs of people's studios in craft magazines, with everything beautifully arranged on shelves, in boxes, jars and tins. I am so envious of the organisation and the fact that everything is in its correct place. There is a large cupboard in the room that I am trying to claim as my own space which is full to over-flowing with craft materials so today I set about organising. I have lots of storage jars, as I really do like glass and I recently saw a fanatastic idea at http://www.shelterness.com/diy-creative-under-shelf-storage/ for maximising storage space. So I have spent this afternoon screwing jars to the storage shelves on the back of the door of my cupboard.





I foolish imagine that with my new working hours and job and Charlie being at school, that I will have plenty of time to tidy and clean and that my craft room will be as beautiful as any that I see in a magazine. I can but dream.....
