The big white built in cupboard in the corner was fit to bursting with books, toys, more household *stuff* which were destined for ebay. With so little time now that isn't going to happen so a garage sale is on the cards and perhaps a car boot sale or two. Until then our bedroom resembles a storeroom!
Once the boxes had been moved and all the cubby holes were washed down I began taking all the Bergere yarn out of the original plastic wrapping into Ziplock bags. So much easier to store and find when I need them. I would love to do the same with the special dk but it goes so quickly that it would be time consuming and not at all practical. They come in sealed plastic bags and I use them as they are easily accessible and still protective
A trip to ikea or perhaps a home delivery is on the cards as I need more shelving to house the Life DK and special Aran. We did look at secondhand but this ikea shelving is perfect as each cubby could have been purpose made for the yarn packs :)
The cupboard in the corner (near the wicker chair) houses around 50 bags of special dk in various colours, I am trying to build up stock of each colour.. it is a slow process but I'm getting there.
The corner cupboard had a shelving unit in that housed all the clutter and I decided to use it as a kind of room divider and my WIPs and projects for work are kept on here.
The table is clear! No clutter on half of it because it had no home.
No moving the clutter every time i needed to pack orders. We kept three chairs but gave the other 6 to charity as they were just another thing that I had to move daily to work at the table.
Packing this afternoon was the easiest and most pleasurable procedure :)
I still have to magic up some room somewhere to store the yarn packs.
So, there it is in all it's glory :)
Now you know where your order is packed <3
I am very keen to have social meet ups here and am looking at having an open day/afternoon regularly.
It's not a huge space - and we have only a few chairs ;)) - but we could use the sunroom as well.
I will give it some thought and see if it is something that people might want to do.
The important work is done.... I have now to find homes for rather a lot of the household things that are now cluttering up the island unit and the living room floor!
But..as I go about that I can keep coming back through and gaze lovingly at this gorgeous space :)
