Hurricane Organizing and Crafting

Thank you to everyone who emailed or messaged to check on me during Hurricane Sandy. A lot of my friends are still without power, some are even trapped in their homes because of power lines and trees. It's going to take a long time for things to be normal again.

I was fortunate that I didn't lose power and -- despite being scared -- managed to host a pretty fun hurricane party.

But one can only play the ukulele and watch 80s movies for so long. Halfway through the storm, I got an itch. An organizing itch.

I started with ribbon, placing the spools on a wire hanger that is more easily accessible than the fabric storage bins I keep them in.

I restacked my fabric in the bins so that I could easily see what was inside each one. I'm also going to donate a lot of fabric scraps to a local arts center.
