About Me

Cusseta, GA, United States
I'm an army wife, working mom of 2 kids.! My husband Tim is a Soldier on Fort Benning. I work for MWR for the Community Recreation Division as an admin assistant...I absolutely LOVE my job I couldn't have found anything better! My daughter, Kennedie, was born in January of 04 and our son, Cale, was born June of 09 - that's right they are 5 and a half years apart! Kennedie is VERY involved in dancing, she is in her 9th season (2017-2018) of being a competitive dancer. It's exhausting but we LOVE it. Cale is starting to REALLY get into sports. He is on a year round wrestling team, and he plays baseball in the spring! This blog started out as a recipe sharing venture but now it's going to turn into a more "granola" way to live. Cheap recipes more homemade recipes and repurposing things. I'm a crafter at heart so i'm going to throw some of that in their too! On Valentines Day of 2017 we bought our first Travel Trailer. I'll be documenting our travels also on this blog!

Craft Room Organization-Fabric

These shelving systems are ALL OVER in our Texas home.  We lost alot of wall/corner and closet space from our Georgia home compared to this home in Texas.  We basically had to create a pantry in our kitchen with these - and I added more space outside of our bathroom.  This set up ran me about $20, could have been cheaper but I choose to go with the prefinished shelves instead of painting wood myself.

First I cut up some foam core board (available at our Dollar Tree's) and folded my fabric around it, I had to fold it in 3rds to make it fit right.
 I love how they look like mini bolts of fabric!
 I honestly could have sworn I had MORE fat quarters than this.  I'm sure i'll find them in another tub.
 I had two shoe boxes that had all these buttons, elastics, velcro, bias tape...those types of things.  I'm trying to pair down my things so to me it was easier to put ALL the buttons in a mason jar (well and it's cute in there too).  The smaller jar holds all the heat and press velco.
 Some buttons were in a set so I didn't break them up, I put them in a 31 "littles carry all" bag (raise your hand if you have a few of these guys laying around because you thought they were "cute" when you bought them but really had no intended purpose right off the bat, my hand is raised!)  I had a few D ring hooks that are also in this bag, and it seems I always think I have my husbands extra rank laying around somewhere but NEVER can find it.  Hopefully now I can go right too it!

Inside the littles bag I have the bias tape and velco I had in another box!
 Don't get excited this is NOT all my fabric.  I actually have put some (and by some I mean like 5 so far) fabric that I am willing to part with aside.  My hope is that one day i'll be able to get a shelf in here and I can line them up side by side like a mini fabric store.  But I have to get rid of OTHER stuff in this room to make that happen!
