Macaroni and Glue Corporate Headquarters (aka The Craft Closet)

I keep meaning to share these pics as I find them, for some unknown reason, endlessly amusing... About a month or so ago, I turned one of our pantries (yes, we have two - why??) into a little office for myself. I say "little" because it actually is VERY little - 4' x 3' inside. But I was going crazy trying to keep my supplies neat and tidy on the kitchen counters and my back was killing me from being hunched over my laptop on the couch all the time. Plus, my husband has an office at home, so why shouldn't I? He doesn't even work here! So, I re-organized a bit and... voila! Welcome to my new corporate headquarters.

Here's the view from the outside:

And the grand foyer... Oh no, wait, that's the whole office.

Supplies and lighting (note the laminated first aid posters on the wall - a nice touch, don't you think?):

More supplies. Are you getting a sense of scope?

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand, that completes our tour. Luckily, I'm a fairly small person (5'0" on my tiptoes), and not too terribly claustrophobic. Can you imagine if I made something really big for a living rather than nice, compact notecards? Sheesh.

My friends and family think the arrangement is hysterical, particularly when I tell them that sometimes I actually close the door just to get a little peace and quiet (like now). My husband said I wouldn't last a week in here, but I'm proud to say I'm still toughing it out. I confess, though, that it does get a bit stuffy...

Love your space and what a fabulous tour! Plus you have a great name. I was excited because I had the extra room as my studio, until my two sons came for the summer. Now I have to walk over piles of clothes and video games just to get to a pair of scissors.

LOL, that is the funniest thing I have ever seen. Good thing you aren't claustrophobic!! Or at least, I hope your aren't!!
