I finally got my craft area put together earlier this month! I got it mostly all unpacked back in the beginning of May, but then it got hot right after that! This craft space is the upstairs portion of my house and there is no air conditioning going to it. It’s a portion of the house that was built in the early 1900s. There are three rooms up there and even when they added electricity to the home later on, one room didn’t even get it. And apparently, none of them got A/C or connection to the swamp cooler. Much of the rest of the house didn’t have cool air this summer either. But, because this house is just covered in shade, we were totally fine. However, this room being upstairs, where all the heat rises to, made it much too unbearable to craft in!
So I haven’t really used the space yet! Now that I have it all put together, I will probably add some kind of cooling unit to it if we are still here next summer. It’s already been so fun to have a place to get away to. Especially one where I can create a giant mess and you wouldn’t even know it cus it’s hidden away! I love bringing my crafts around the house with me, in front of the TV, or wherever the lighting is currently best. But, that usually means there are more scattered messes and I don’t love that.
