In just one short week I have made significant progress in the organization of Robin's Room. In times of extra company, my craft room also doubles as a guest bedroom. And, I had known that within four days of relocating the contents of Robin's Room to my room, this space would be utilized as such. There's nothing like knowing your
87-year-old grandpa needs a respectable place to sleep, but, when you can't even find the bed. . .
Fortunately, I also have a "craft classroom" that can hold up to 16 people on 4 six-foot tables. (For a video of my craft room, click here). These tables are currently a lifesaver as this room has become my
new organizing space. Hmmm, but what to do about that large Christmas Stamp-a-Stack on Friday night!?
While I still have a lot of work to do, I am finally beginning to feel much less overwhelmed and a little more accomplished. But, through it all, the one feeling that remains a constant, is sadness. I'm sad that Robin never had the chance to open so many packages and even more sad that she never had the chance to actually use them.
I'm sad that there are unfinished scrapbook pages, and that Robin's grandson will never get to sprinkle
ALL the glitter she had all over her craft room one day.
I have always said that my craft room is my happy place and now, because someone I know is in heaven, there is now a little bit of heaven in there too.
