  • i DID NOT FIND THIS AS ANY NEW INFO. MOST PEOPLE
    WOULD FOLLOW THESE STEPS WHEN PLANNING ANY EVENT NOT JUST FOR CRAFTS.

  • I thought the comments were good, not what I needed. I always have such a mess in my craft room and need organization ideas. Right Now I am at a point where the room is in fairly good shape and I need constructive help organizing it. I simply have to much stuff. I currently have two projects going and need to get to them. I have spent way too much time trying to get my Roku working and keeping it working.
