Most of these toys (below) belonged to my husband when he was a child. A couple of newer items have been added in.
I found two Ikea shelves with the small drawers by the curbside one day so I've been filling the drawers with some of my ribbons, vintage seam binding and other small items.

This is my basement 'craftroom/studio'. Well, it would be those things if I ever made anything! I just seem to accumulate the stuff and have intentions on simmer all the time but nothing much gets accomplished except more stuff piles up. So I went down to take stock of what needs to be done and got so discouraged because I don't know where to start and there doesn't seem to be enough room to sort things out so I started looking through magazines which is therapeutic - really it is.
I can usually get a grip on sorting and organizing but this time I'm flummoxed - I think that's the word I want, it isn't in my dictionary. Any ideas on how to sort and tidy (besides throwing the stuff out, that's not gonna happen :-)

This picture shows the shape that was formed when I poured my wax. We all agreed this is a lovely dancing woman wearing a Marie Antoinette style dress - very elegant and graceful, isn't she? What does a dancer have to do with my life and what is that shape poking up from her dress - hmm, I don't know any dancers or go to ballets so what could this mean for me? I wasn't sure at first but on New Year's Day it came to me that it may mean that this year I am going to 'go with the flow' and all good things are going to flow to me. I like that. I hope that's a pile of money stashed under the dancing girl's dress ;)
