I love Sarah Ban Breathnach's idea in her book, Mrs. Sharp's Traditions, about having a Rainy Day Cupboard. Her idea is that these craft supplies and time occupiers are saved for days when the weather is dreary and children cannot go out. I may end up using ours as a Heat Advisory Trunk instead - but still the same idea!
I have had my collection building over the last several years and think that Emily is just now getting to an age where I could implement this. However, when we cleaned it out earlier this week - she had a ball looking through all the trims and goodies!
My supplies are stored in our living room "coffee table" - which is actually an old steamer trunk. I have paper, old forms (I used to love to play with these), art supplies, a big box of old trims and ribbons, egg cartons and meat trays, etc...
Do any of you have such a spot?
I came across a bunch of these while going through a box of craft supplies David's aunt sent me - are these for embroidery or red-work?
