Confessions of a Craftaholic

So... while I've been good, organising my craft cupboard , I've also been bad.

I've been rummaging through the recycling bin again.

O.k, so it's not that bad. It's not like I'm pulling things out of the garbage bin and wiping off the food scraps. And really, it's a good thing. Not only am I "up-cycling" like a hipster, but it's getting me out of my crafting funk. We'll get back to that shortly.

First, look what I made!
Not the flowers of course, but the little container holding them.

It used to be one of those little probiotic  milk containers ( you know the ones that taste like sugar but are meant to be really good for you? Don't look at me, Mr Frog is into it) wrapped up in a little white paper bag. Frankly, anything "tied up with string" sends me right over the happy edge.

This was a last minute birthday gift for a friend from mum's group. Gotta be happy with a little posy that comes with it's own vase.

Now, about my mojo.

It's kinda gone walkabout since the expo. All the work I put into it before hand kinda left me a little empty. So, I'm organising the craft cupboard. The fun part of this is that I can see what I actually have, including all the crazy bits and bobs I keep "just in case". Surely my mojo is there somewhere.

Should probably get rid of some junk.


Anyhoo, I've got lots of ideas for projects, I just can't be arsed. I do have visions of an amazingly tidy and inspiring craft cupboard... in lieu of a separate studio in the yard of my four bedroom with study weatherboard dream home.


How do you organise your crap extremely important supplies?

Stay tuned for the Cupboard of Creation and the Return of my Mojo.

I swear anytime I clean out, my mojo goes away for awhile. Who wants to make a mess when everything is all organized and tidy? Not I. Love your milk mums.

(I know...they're daisies...but maybe alliteration will spark your creativity? HA!)

How do I organise it all? I throw things in the crack of the door the cupboard offers me, (the door doesn't open properly due to something else in front of it) and I hope it lands somewhere where I will find it again. Mojo? Yep in there somewhere too I expect
