Wow, this doesn't sound perfect or anything!  DH just completely reorganized my craft room for me (a project I gave him leave to do), and came out looking haggard, saying that I'm not allowed to buy any more yarn or fat quarters until I've made him a blanket.  So perhaps I'll take a look at what I've got and actually do something with it all.  Maybe I'll even go sweat-shop style and finally have something to put in my etsy store!

Can I borrow your DH? Just to reorganize, then I will send him back. Maybe he has a single brother? cousin? ah, never mind.

I like making stuff. Rumor has it, I'm an elf. Like a Santa Elf, not one of those elegant LOTR types.  Mostly because I compulsively craft and partially because I have green shoes.

Here's my newest creation... a confetti sketchbook. Of course, there's the shredded money in there. LOL



I had the vinyl, the buttons, the fabric, etc. (and of course the shredded money) in my stash.

Leylia -

My husband wouldn't even know where to start in my studio. I don't think I would let him organize it if he wanted to... I would never find anything again.

Your hubbie's a keeper!

this is how i feel.  knowing my fiancee, he would proudly tell me that he had untangled all my yarn or something and i would find all my carefully-wound balls in neat piles of loose strands or all in one giant ball.  thanks hun. 

how awesome yours could step in and help you out like that!

Hehe, I had no idea that comment would make such a splash!  It's strange, but it was actually kind of annoying.  He gets on these organizational kicks, and nothing is safe.  The problem is, sometimes he organizes things in ways that make no sense (for instance, we actually have a box in our attic labeled "Things We Don't Use Very Often").  But this time he actually did quite a good job.  He separated out all of my half-finished knitting projects from the rest of the yarn, put all the bulk fabric in under-the-bed boxes, and put the clothes and scraps in big moving boxes - organized by color!  All my beads and threads are in one place...it's beautiful.

Of course, now I'm afraid to go in there and touch anything, because I'm going to screw it all up.

I'm going to start working on something tonight.  Hopefully I'll be able to post it here by Saturday.  Cheesy

Very nice confetti sketch book cover, klynslis!

I finished up another t-shirt re-con but I'll have to wait till DD comes home to take pics of her in it cause she wore it to school today.

Leylia, your DH sounds like he did a great job! I'm keeping my DH FAR FAR away from my crafting space (OK, we share a table -- one side has "his" computer and the other 1/2 of the table is mine). He keeps threatening to throw away all my "junk"  Shocked NO! He can't do that! Mawhahahahah ---- so I threaten to throw out all his excess computer junk (he rebuilds computers as a hobby and he's got at least as much "junk" as I do! LOL)

I made these little "outfits" yesterday as part of what I hope will be an assemblage piece about consumerism.

Factoid: The average American purchased 48 new items of clothing in 2001. -Worldwatch Institute



Of course, this means that I would have to create 44 more of them. LOL

I made this this weekend. Need a quick cash infusion? Or are you addicted to money?

The syringe is leftover from my cat's meds. I had to do some quick talking to get a needle from the vet, reassuring them that it won't be something people could actually touch and get hurt. Syringe is filled with shredded money, of course.  Roll Eyes The fabric and foam for the base are from my stash and the mirrored case is thrifted from the local salvage yard.

ha ha -If you had not said that the shredded item was money, I don't think I would have gotten it...but very clever idea and play on words...

I would suggest that perhaps shredding a bit more and sprinkling it in the box (like it dripped out of the needle?)--or better yet, instead of wasting money--maybe crumple up a dollar or two and placing it in the box?  I think it would be clearer and also be more balanced...

clever clever--I like your dark sense of humor!
