That's what it's all about. I love being tidy, and even though I often get accused of being the one who makes the most mess in the flat (it's all for the love of crafting though), I feel that I'm quite tidy and organised compared to other people. Boyfriend's mum always marvels at the state of our cupboards, as in you can actually open them without anything falling on your head as you do so. And everything is neatly piled up inside. Oh how I like that word: neat. It's quite neat itself don't you think?
Anyway, what I was about to talk about today was organisation. Organisation of crafting supplies to be more precise. A while back, I purchased a load of embroidery thread, and it came in this ugly little box. I didn't find it user-friendly, it got messy as soon as you used some thread, and there's nothing that I find less conducive to creativity and crafty happiness than crafting supplies in a mess. You just don't want to touch them you know?
But recently, with embroidery getting a revival in several of your blogs (Mooncalf I'm looking at you here!), I have been itching to do some myself. But that just couldn't happen until the thread got a touch of the organisation magic wand. So I started by sorting it all out colour-wise, and then I got my trusty cereal cardboard boxes out and cut out H shapes. Lots of them. And I started wrapping up the thread around said Hs. Not a quick easy job I can tell you that. The spools of thread look rather tidy but there are quite a few knots in there. But I'm getting there, I'm thinking doing two or three a night would be a good rhythm. I can't wait to see it all finished, in a neat little box of some sort!!!
Neat = Petit Filoux happiness. Fact of life.
