Tackle It Tuesday – I’ve Always Wanted a Craft Room

by Jennifer Banks

I come from a family of crafters.  When I was a very young child, I would go to my great grandmothers house and take out all the pretty quilting squares from her piles and piles of squares.  She used to cut up old clothes into squares with pinking shears, and would send all the squares to her church.  The church quilting bee would then turn them into quilts and donate them where ever needed.  I used to take the squares I loved and turn them into purses and wallets, bags and blankets for my dolls.

As I got older I learned to do other things, my Mom is also a big crafter, and ever since two of her three children moved out, she dedicated a whole room to her crafting.  I may have turned 3 shades of green.

But now, NOW I have a craft room just for me!

This week I dove into my spare room and turned it into a room dedicated for crafting!  And I know with all the time I’ve been spending in the Christmas pins on Pinterest that I’ll be putting this room to great use!  I actually already began my first Christmas craft!  It’s a wee little bird house that I got at Michael’s…my test one before I buy the big one…but that’s another post all together.

Do you have a room for crafting?

Though I was born Jennifer, please don't call me that. It makes me feel like I am in trouble. Just call me Jen. Or @Jen_Banks if you are looking for me on Twitter. I am the mother of two insanely loud and active boys - 7 and 2.5 - who keep me hopping from morning 'til night. For nearly five years I've written at my blog, A Busy Mommy, about my life as a mom, milestones for my boys, and everything else in between. You can also find my posts on FisherPricePlay.ca, and I have recently taken on the Tackle It Tuesday column for 5MinutesforMom.com.
