HELP! I LIVE IN A CRAFT ROOM
By Sandra Allen

I chuckled at my place today
As slowly I had found
I have a place in my craft room
Not the other way around

So often I have lived in spaces
Too small to change my mind
Without going to other places
Leaving sanity behind

I've heard it called a curio shop
Or you've got a lot of stuff
But do any of them ever stop
To wonder just how tough

It is to fit it all just right
And make it to my chair
To find a place that's out of site
Or tabletop that's bare

With colored ribbon and some yarn
Plus scissors, buttons, and bows
I pretty much just need a barn
For things I make with those

Hooks and patterns abound within
Fabric and threads in tubbies
Held together with a safety pin
Stuffed together in cubbies

I sleep among some tables
Piled high with goodies galore
Mixed in with computer cables
So sure I can't fit any more

But to those who see my stash
They all must remember this
I make just enough of the cash
To keep me in crafters bliss

So judge me not those who dare
To understand my parody
Crafts are so much cheaper fare
Then undergoing therapy

Now I'm off to make something
I know not what just yet
But as I spend less than I bring
I will never be in debt

The start, the middle, but not the end. For I am convinced I will shuffle off this mortal coil, impaling myself with a spoon of Nutella while tripping over a bag of yarn because I was watching a youtube video on a crochet stitch.

Stay Crafty My Friends

So cute!

When we built our house, I asked for a craft/sewing room. I don't spend as much time as I'd like to in it, but when I can, it's like therapy. I have an old stereo and play my favorite CDs.

If I finish all the projects I have, plus all the books I want to read and movies I want to see, I figure I need to live to be at least 90-95.

Thanks! I justify my stuff by making and selling things, or posting here.

I truly understand.sewing patterns in my dresser,yarn in a tote waiting to become an Afghan,dish towels waiting to have a top on them waiting patiently in a tote,boxes of fabric scraps waiting to become a quilt. I really,really do understand.Happy crafting my friend.

Sounds like something you could/would write and many can relate but not just crafts!
Me and my plant shed and hothouse are in the same boat and with winter on its way (to Florida) it's even more crowded.
And now I have had to make room for a stray outdoor cat in my shed because she does not like being inside and so she now has a cozy 'house' in my shed with a door for her 'yard' trips. We spend time together while moving the plants around to make just one more 'spot'.
