Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I'm 20-something crafter, active explorer,  and memory keeper, currently living in New York City.

apartment tour: crafting room

It's official - I have a crafting room! I always knew I'd have one eventually, but it was always chalked up there with my dreams of having an older 4 bed/3 bath, 3 car garage house, with a view of a lake - fine, I'd settle for a mountain with no bees (small dream, I know). It never crossed my mind that in the sea of shoe box sized apartments (aka - NYC), mine would have extra space that my desk just conveniently fit into.

You probably took a good, hard look at that photo. And if you're wondering, yes that is indeed a closet. And yes, others are baffled that I didn't fill it with clothes. But in all honesty (although mom would probably differ), I don't have that many clothes. There's an identical closet across the mini-hallway that houses all my clothes and shoes. Fun fact: I have more shoes in my desk at work than in my apartment.

Eventually, I'll figure out a better storage system and spruce it up with some more Cori personality. But after sitting in boxes for 5 months, everything has a home and is out of the box, which was my main goal (small steps, people).

First project for the room will be this corkboard. The wine I have drank for the past 3 years will finally pay off. And you just thought I drank it all for fun ;)
