So apparently getting a housemate has put my brain into re-organisation mode… and that meant re-organising, well, every cupboard! But most time-consumingly: the craft cupboard. No, not the yarn stash… that’s in the other cupboard. This is the cupboard that contains my million other hobbies. Yes, there are more!
In truth though, I don’t do all of them anymore, so I did a bit of a cull as well. Crayons were handed to the neighbour’s children. Tissue paper was recycled. Old, dried out pens were removed. Coloured leads were put aside for family who use draughting pencils.
Curiously, among all the stuff in there were 2 circle cutters, 4 scalpels, 12 erasers (including no less than 4 retractable ones), 3 glue sticks, 3 bottles of white-out, 2 packets of Tip-Ex Correction Sheets (for typewriters), 7 types of paper clips (including ones shaped like pigs) and, well, a truck load of papers including notepaper with matching envelopes! Apparently I hoard.
Post cull and clean, the cupboard is so roomy! I was even tempted to start a new yarn area, but right now the space constraint stops me buying more yarn so… maybe not. Actually, maybe that’s where my finished scarfs could go…? That’s an idea!
Strangely, I do feel… lighter… for having culled. Partly because I can see and reach everything again, but also because I’ve reassessed what I want to be doing craft-wise. Other than weaving. Scandalous, I know!
