TIMI Behind the Scenes

A few weeks ago, Brian snapped this photo when he came into the bedroom and found me "extreme crafting." In actuality, I was sorting and organizing my abundance of craft supplies. He insisted I share this with you all, and I'm happy to oblige and pull back the curtain, so to speak, on what goes on in Thanks, I Made It-land. So here you have it, my unglamorous, transitional living quarters and craft supply hoarding tendencies.

A perennial "Yes" person, I've been a little swamped with multiple jobs, side projects, blog projects, and upcoming graduate school decisions. My motto is, when life gives you lemons, organize them! Thus, you find me spending Sunday nights with a box of sugary cereal and fuzzy slippers labeling Ziplock bags "leather scraps" and "decorative trim." Hope you have a organizing-full weekend!

P.S.-- If you want to share a DIY project you made (inspired by a TIMI tutorial or your own creation) or have an idea for a project, please share them with me! Click "contact" above for e-mail, Twitter, etc. I can't wait to see your creations!


  1. Aww this is so fun :)
    Your so cute. I always wanted to know how the people live there lives really. rather than what the bloggers imagine.

  2. Ah yes, the unglamourous side of crafting. I recognise this scene! I have a duel personality sometimes - the side of me wanting to make things and the side of me that wants a lovely neat showhome apartment .
    Worth it though!

  3. Look at you all organized.

    I busted into my craft stash last night. It's full of Ziplocks. Too many.

  4. This reminds me that I really need to organize my crafting stuff. I keep everything! I guess you could say I'm a craft hoarder. It's really bad when occasionally I find sequins or beads in the carpet. I'm always wondering how it got there :)

  5. Very funny, thanks for sharing. There is a price to pay to making pretty things: lot's of clutter & messes to clean up.

  8. Pffft...that's only a mini hoard! lol I can so relate to it though...when you get the inspiration you just have to dive in! I think most of us creatives can relate to this scene. Thanks for sharing a glimpse of your realness...lol
