Settling In

I am officially tired of boxes. I'm also a little tired of the fact that we don't seem to be doing anything about them. I love my hubby, but sometimes he just doesn't see the same point that I do. He wants to put off getting the storage units I want for the craft room and getting that room organized. He wants to tackle the boxes in the bedroom closet first.

That's all well and good, but he's not the one desperate to have a sewing machine up and working. The one who feels an overwhelming urge to make some cards. The one who wants to know what's in her yarn stash so she can organize and purge.

I don't think he realizes that the longer we put this off, the more I'm going to want to keep because I'll have more and more ideas for what to do with it!

Being stuck in the apartment for a week because of the snow piled on the sidewalk didn't help either. I'm feeling stir crazy. More than that, I'm feeling creatively antsy. I need something to do. I can't even add to the box of completed granny squares for a shawl ministry project, because I've run out of accessible worsted weight yarn. I'm starting to feel like I'm losing my mind!

I have a really awesome idea for a messenger bag. If I ever get a sewing machine set up, that is.

Sorry, but you're up against a normal guy thing. They have different priorities from you. We had a fire in our house almost 2 years ago. I and my sons put away boxes and boxes of stuff the clean-up crew had taken to the cleaners but their were some things my husband needed to take care of. He didn't do anything about them until after he lost his job 6 months ago and had to be in the house and see them piled here for a couple months. I also have some back trouble and so offered to pay one of my sons to just carry some of my boxes of craft supplies down to my craft room and he flatly refused--it wasn't his stuff. So basically- if you want your craft supplies organized you're going to have to do it yourself! (BTW-one of my other sons wanted some money so he carried my boxes downstairs for me.)
Good luck with your organization projects!
