I have to share my craft space when I move home. My sisters (10,11) need a bigger playspace so were gonna share my section of basement (which neighbors theirs). I trust my girls not to mess with my things but they have a nice little freind who I dont trust. So far I have a kitchen table, a locking footlocker, and a futon (which I WILL NOT give up) and a smallish rug (basement floors are cold). I bead, I sew, I scrapbook and paint. Any advice on how to keep my suplies safe from little hands?

My mom is a high school science teacher and she always has to keep her stuff locked up. What she uses is a big fake wood cabinet she got from wal-mart that has doors on it, and she has a lock around the handles. She also got a big file cabinet that locks for $10 at a yard sale that she painted all these different designs on. If you got things like that you could even block off most of your area from the rest of the basement Smiley

An electric fence? 

Really kids do get nosey, and it doesn't take long to spill or tip things over,make a mess, etc so the best thing is to put away behind closed doors/drawers all the glittery inticing and interesting stuff.

so far 2 weeks in and I havent had anyone venture over my line. I think there afraid of what may kill them if they do. I guess decking out my whole area in crafty themed skulls (im a forensic pathology student) helped too.
