I've spent the last few days in blog land looking for something particular that I just haven't found yet. I thought maybe I'd do this as a last resort. I am looking for a way to place/store/showcase my yarn in my new office/craft room. Maybe something on the walls..I looked at shelves and even wine racks! I've shown Jeremy a few ideas I've had but none that I'm totally in love with. Jeremy is extremely handy around the house and will do pretty much anything I ask him to..but he hates when he does something and then a month later I change my mind and he has to take it down and start all over..I can be such a headache sometimes :)

Right now I have it sitting all over the house in Longaberger baskets, I have storage totes full, a dresser full. It's everywhere. I'd love to come up with an idea that I would have most of it out so I could see it. I know that may seem silly..but that's what I want. I spend at least 8 hours a day in this room so I want it to be as close to perfect as possible. It's not a huge room but it doesn't hold a lot either. My work desk/computer. Our home desk/computer..and my sewing machine and yarn..lots of yarn.

If I'm being honest I must say this is also something I "need" to do as well. My dear Josephine has started getting into my baskets and stealing the yarn to play with. She has now done this on several occasions which leaves me with hours of yarn wrapping and untangling...It's not fun to say the least. I've tried giving her "her own"yarn to play with but I think this just confused her. :)
Does anyone have any ideas? I can keep looking on line but I know every blog I usually visit does something with yarn..
I appreciate any ideas you could give me.
Thanks...take care!

  2. Hi!

    I've finally found time to pop by to thank you for your lovely comments on my blog, you are so uplifting. You wondered when Mini Cuckoo was born, he was born on the 23rd February 2011. Three weeks old tomorrow and getting more and more delicious everyday!

    I just saw this and think it's fab but might not be what you had in mind. http://noknittedknickers.blogspot.com/2011/03/busy-bee.html

    I've book marked your blog so I can come back and have a good nose once I've done my admin.

    It's lovely to "meet" you and I'll pop by again soon.

  3. Hi Nicole!!
    Go onto Flickr and search for "Organize Yarn", "organize yarn stash", "organize stash", "craft rooms"... and you'll find a lot of ideas... easier than going through blogland... there's a group there called Pretty Organized too... is not just about yarns, but has great things!

  4. Thank all 3 of you..I knew I could count on some good ideas and you didn't let me down! I greatly appreciate it..
    I'm so undecisive I just hope it doesn't take forever to get done...take care!
