Craft Room Clean Up

Good Golly Miss craft room/office has been a disaster ever since we moved. I typically spend a lot of time making things in the summer. It's therapeutic and gives me an excuse to buy more craft supplies. My craft room/office has been such a mess that I could barely stand to walk by in the hallway.  I spent the last two days working on the clean up project. It's not all the way done, but I'm excited about the progess I've made.

Here is a before picture. Oh my.

Here are a few after pictures.
I'm in love with my new yarn tower!  I just bought it at a resale shop yesterday.  I'm pretty sure you are supposed to put bananas in it or something, but it looks so much better full of colorful yarn!

I still need to finish cleaning up my desk (which you'll notice is not pictured). :)  I also need to find the perfect fabric for curtains and get busy sewing those. 
I'm also in love with Doodle Twine.  You can buy it on their website (or on Amazon like me).  I must say that I was a little surprised about how small the spools were when they arrived...but even the little spools are adorable.  I have a few projects that require doodle twine on my list.

Now that the clean up project is almost finished in my craft room, I should probably start the one in my classroom.   I've been rereading the math workstation book/posts from last summer in the past few days.  I'm hoping to have a few math freebies ready to post next week.

    I can't wait to see what you do with that twine. I've been seeing it everywhere, but haven't a clue what people do with it!
