I am on an organizing kick right now. Whenever we are approaching a big change in our lives (in our house anyway) I go into an organizing frenzy and right now it's "before the kids go back to school, let's get organized!" frenzy. I get like this around the holidays too! The boys all go to school in just under two weeks and I have to get closets, etc. organized or I just don't feel right. I am not lucky enough to have a studio or really anywhere to keep all my crafting supplies so it's stored in different areas of the house. I never really see it all at one time. Well tonight I came across all of my millinery flowers at one time and it's officially out of hand. I didn't realize just how much of it I had. I also have tons of lace and I don't know why because I don't like lace! I know some of you are gasping right about now. I wish I knew why it bothers me so but it just does and in the meantime I've accumulated lots of it. I've starting listing some really pretty pink millinery in my store tonight. I have lots more and am hoping to get some more put together in some packs maybe by tomorrow night.
So if you are looking for some know where I'll be!

Hello! Saw you on Jenny's site. Thanks for coming by my Etsy shop. I hope this organizing kick you speak of kicks in for me soon! Ha :) The millinary flowers are so beautiful. You know I go to flea markets and antique stores all the time & I've only seen a handful in person. So I've had to resort to making crepe paper flowers. Gorgeous blog!

I don't have a "studio" either but in our new house I now have a nice large "craft closet". It is the 70's wetbar that now houses all my crafts. Problem is it's the lowest room in the house to get a "update" so I have yet (in 2 months) gone in there to organize. It's SO SCARY when you open the door. I had the opening to the wetbar closed off so theres no light until I add a skylight. It's just not real inviting. Anyway....sorry to bore you! ha!
