You have promised yourself that now the kids are back in school you will reorganize the craft closet from the "summer craft days". Promise went something like this..."I vow to myself that I will stay home (No Hobby Lobby and No Michaels's) and gut the craft closet, reorganize to the best of my capability and I will not leave the house until it is complete." Wait....I need containers to organize, but once I drive to Wal-Mart, hunt them down, stand in line, drive home...my day is gone. Alas, I have an empty plastic container or two around here but then my craft closet begins to look like my dear grandmother's house (she never threw anything away, she re-purposed every twisty tie and every baggie). A strip of burlap to cover the label, a stamp or two, a few dressy buttons later, a pat on the back for not caving into my desire to shop...Done! Craft closet complete, not a dime spent, and I never even changed out of my PJ's! I have been looking for a way to label my lentils and beans in my pantry and I think this is my answer! I feel a pantry overhaul brewing...those bedroom walls just may have to wait. There is one problem.....Honey? I'm gonna need you to put a rush on my craft room, I have run out of space:)
