Behind the Scenes : Cleaning Up for the New Year

Posted by

Some of you may remember some our very first posts where we talked about our move from 42nd Street and organizing the crafts room. We do our best to keep the crafts room neat, but with seven people constantly crafting, it is always in need of a little sprucing up. More like a lot of sprucing. Laura and our new intern Whitney have been working hard to update and reorganize our bins. When it is all complete we will share those images as well, but here is a peek at the mess they have been sorting and a bit of their progress.
