What is your favorite room? I guess a lot of people have a favorite place but I don’t want that. What is your most favoritist (yeah – I meant to put favoritist) room in your house? The room where you like to spend your time. The room where you relax and unwind. The room where you can let all the stress of the day melt away and just forget all your trouble.
A couple years ago we changed our formal living room into a library. Who uses a formal living room this day and age anyway? We never even went in there except for me when I wanted a quiet place with good light to read. So, for a long time, this was my favorite room:
Then, a couple years ago, I had a brilliant idea! My mother was basically the only person who ever used our guest bedroom. I had all my crafts and hobby stuff in a large closet (that was supposed to be a small bathroom) downstairs. I was quickly accumulating entirely too much stuff to continue to stay in that cramped little space. So, I talked Hubby into letting me convert our guest room into a hobby room for me:
My computer and all my racks of ribbon and fibers for scrapbooking
My 3 rolling carts of stamps, paints, and other embelishments for scrapbooking.
My main work table with a doctor’s stool (which I ADORE), my hanging drink holder and tash receptacle, and my cart that holds all the scrapbook paper. I even drew yardstick measurements on the edge of the table so I could have quick measuring.
My sewing/painting/hot-gluing/drying/sizzix (a scrapbook tool that makes die-cuts) table. The sign above the table is asking Hubby and daughter not to put (ie dump) anything into this room as it seems to be a” catch-all” for all the crap lying about the house.
My bookcases that have all my spare albums (the entire top two shelves – yes – I have that many and – yes – I know I have a propblem)
and all my pictures (all the plastic cases on the bottom shelf) and my camera equipment.
