Craft Space

I am constantly rearranging and reorganizing my house.  It seems like there will never come a time when I will be completely satisfied with where things are.  The craft room is one of the main rooms that I can't seem to "get right".  Maybe it is because new tools and supplies are going into that room all the time.  Who knows? 

Almost a year ago I acquired this dresser, deco podged it and moved it into the room for yarn storage.  At the time, I was in no mood to rearrange the entire room, so I found the emptiest spot and there it has sat ever since.  This dresser has become my work space, and up until this weekend I have been sitting at it and facing a wall.  Who can be creative sitting facing a wall? Not me.  So I moved it.  It is not a great view looking out the window of the craft room, but it is better than starring at a wall. 

Moving the dresser to this spot also opened up the sides for more organization.  Simple yet effective, I attached some hooks to a scrap piece of wood, and screwed it to the side for tool storage.  On the other side of the dresser, I mounted a power strip. 

What am I working on???  I have been experimenting with crayola Air Dry clay.  Not sure if I really like the clay or not...In progress, beach glass tea light holders, pebble bowl, jewelry containers, and mushroom recipe holder.
