So what I'm about to show you is completely and utterly terrifying...are you ready? it is

craft room????

EEEK! This is the current state of my craft room. Gearing up for Christmas already had destroyed my room (looked like a crafting tornado {hence craftnado} had hit it) and now that Christmas is's further destroyed it. If you don't know already, my husband and I work opposite shifts (he's 1st and I'm 2nd). And we have a 2 year old son. And I have rheumatoid arthritis. Why am I telling you all this? Because my time is limited to take care of the things I need to. Like taking down Christmas decorations. My RA causes stiffness and pain in the mornings. And because my right wrist joint isn't the best I avoid lifting things (like tubs for storing Christmas decorations). So, I'm slowly working on getting my decorations down (but only while my son naps) and storing those in the craft room for now. Hopefully this weekend my hubby and I can finish with the putting away all of the decorations and I can hopefully get started on cleaning up my craft room. Until then, I won't have many posts. But I'm hoping that I will the the room ready to go in a a week or two and get more posts out to you. I'm planning out some Valentine's Day decorations/crafts and I can't wait to get started. See you guys soon. Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Oh Ellie, I totally understand what's it's like as I have chronic health issues too. It really sucks sometimes because you want to do so much but your body goes "uh uh no way, I'm not going along with that" so you have to do the best you can each day. And yes things get done a lot slower than most people but thank goodness for crafting. It's what keeps me sane most days. Kind regards, Wendy (a.k.a 01poppyblue) :)
