What a mess!

After having a shopping spree on Saturday and seeing Jane Dean's ribbons in storage jars I thought I would sort my room out. I have not long moved it back into the lounge and an happier in here, but all my stash was just moved in, not sorted out.So yesterday evening I started the mammoth task of sorting it all out. I was happily sitting on the floor sorting my ribbons by colour into tubs I had bought from Poundland when I noticed something moving just in front of me. I got up and looked onto the floor and saw the biggest spider I have ever seen. After screaming and running from the room Tony caught it in one of my ribbon tubs and took it outside, but before he did I got Becky to take a photo of it.
Here is the invader of my craft room:

Now, in case anyone thinks I like spiders let me tell you, I have a complete and utter phobia of these horrible things. I told Tony when he came back in that I didn't want my craft room in here anymore, but he said I have to keep it here as he has already put all the shelving up! I had to leave the room last night after moving the ribbon tubs.
This morning I decided to carry on with my sorting and this is the mess I have around me now:

As you can see it's a bit of a mess and I am wishing I didn't start now, but I have to get it finished today as am back at work tomorrow.

You may also have noticed my ironing board laying on it's side in the bottom picture, the reason that is there is because it is the only thing that will stop my dog coming in here when I have stuff on the floor. Bless him he lays the other side, but won't jump over it to come in LOL.

I also bought a cushion for my craft chair, it is lovely and I bought it from The merchant Chandler along with a decorative hanging hook thing. It did originally have a picture of jams in it, but i managed to take that out an put one in I made for it. It is going to go up in my craft room.

Well, I can't stay on here all day, I must get this room sorted out and just hope that no more spiders come for a visit!
Thanks for popping by. x
