Yarn, Yarn, and More Yarn!

These days I feel like I have yarn coming out my ears!:) For the past month or two I have been selling hats. I opened my Etsy shop in February and then a few weeks later really started working at selling and have been busy ever since! I have been having so much fun with this new adventure! I love crocheting because I find it very relaxing and it gives me something to do while my husband is working and little L is sleeping. I do have to admit my house has suffered from my re-found love for crocheting.

That being said today I was determined to get caught up with all my house work!!! I started tackling the thing that had been bothering me the most. Laundry. I feel like I am always behind on laundry since becoming a mom but as of late I have been unusually far behind. I got almost all the way caught up with this and then did the dishes, vacuumed the floors, cleaned the kitchen, picked up the rest of the house, and reorganized little L's play room. By the time I finally finished all this Little L was in bed napping so I figured why not work on a few hats...

...and this is why I should not have.

Every time I felt the urge to crochet I had to haul bags and bags of yarn and "stuff" out of my daughters playpen and into whatever room I was going to use. Yes, I really did keep it in the playpen. :) When I hauled it out today I decided that was it!! It was time to make myself a craft room. I had been thinking for a while that I should really set something up but today I finally had the energy/motivation/time to do it. I enlisted the help of my husband for some heavy lifting but otherwise all I had to do was some hardcore organizing.




This room went from spare bedroom to spare bedroom/spare TV room/craft room.

This is my favorite part!! I have the yarn all color coordinated! I also like that I have somewhere to put the flowers I have made so they will not get smashed!:)

Had to add some pictures of my little helper ;)

Now that everything is moved and organized all I have to do is convince my husband to let me paint and do some decorating. :) Oh, and make some hats of course. :)
