Craft Room Inspiration

I'm in obsessive decorating mode. Big time I can't think about anything other than buying and making things for our home mode. Sadly, pinterest is my best friend. And to bore all 4 of my readers to death, I'm going to start posting about all my finds on pinterest. I'm currently working on getting my craft space where I want it.

I started out with this blank space:

We've made some improvements since: painted the walls a pretty yellow, put up some shelves. But I have a ton of awesome ideas for what I want my room to be so I've tried to break them up into a coupe of posts. I'll be posting all of my inspiration soon along with some DIY projects I hope to finish up as well.

Where do you go for inspiration?

This is going to be another house post so if you don't want to hear about home improvements and decorating, you probably shouldn't talk to me for a while. My level of interestingness has plummeted significantly. I wake up, go to work, come home, work on the house. The end. 
Hanging blinds on our front door excites me. Literally.  If you were thinking about stalking me through the glass panel in the door - Sorry, try harder.
Closet organization has begun. I still can't find my tshirts but my shoes are readily available so who cares about the rest.

Shelves are up in the craft room! I'm going to show how excited I am with excessive exclamation points!!!!

Now this. This is shameful. We have a before picture obviously. Then the middle picture was taken after we crammed in some of our stuff {yeah, I said some - that is only part of the crap we brought over}. And the third picture. That was taken Monday after 3 or 4 boxes and several bags had been unpacked. Is it just me or does it look worse now?

No matter how many boxes and bags are in my way, the happiness that consumes me every time I sit outside and watch my babies run around more than makes up for the mess.  I walk in and can't wait to play outside. Our grass needs to be cut and there are still a million things that need to be put away but that can wait until tomorrow. Rolling around in the grass always comes first at our house!

We're Homeowners...

Finally! We have a home that's ours, all ours. We closed on the house on Monday, April 29th and got the last of our stuff moved in on Sunday. I never realized how many random things we've accumulated until we filled our new garage with boxes and bags. I kid you not - I can't park my little car in the garage because of the mess. To get my mind off all the stress of moving, I've been pinning decor inspiration like mad. Once the bags and boxes are unpacked {and the goodwill bags have been toted away}, I will have tons of decorating and DIY posts. Until then...
