Week 11 - Office/Craft Area

Is this room the same for you, what we call in our family, "The Dump Room"? You know. The room that gets everything dumped in it and the door closed because Grandma is coming for a visit? Or, you didn't plan cleaning into the details for a dinner party? Ugh. Then when you need something, you slowly open the door to make sure nothing is falling over or some Halloween costume isn't about to accost you and make your heart leap out of your chest! Yes. THAT room.  Well, this week we are going to tackle  some of these things!


Do you have a separate office space? Or a space for your your crafts and craft tools? In my home this is the space where paper breeds faster than rabbits and dust bunnies reside! It is also in my bedroom. I have condensed the belongings in this space with clever use of containers that I will share with you, BUT I recommend to anyone listening that your busywork shouldn't go to bed with you at night. You need your rest. God says in Matthew 11:28 "Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest." We must not add our troubles to our sleep. If you can close off the office space from the rest of the room, it will help you sleep.
