A neat craft room

I regularly check a few craft sites for inspiration, patterns and tutorials and came across this just now:

whip up » Blog Archive » yvestown: the first room

Coincidentally, I'm taking a break from cleaning out my studio - I've spent over an hour sorting through piles of fabric. Very little stays, the rest will go away somewhere. I've been taking old, broken storage containers out to the trash and I've been up and down the stairs so many times that a) I don't feel guilty about not exercising this morning and b) little Jerry finally gave up on trying to follow me everywhere and just parked himself on the second step from the top.

I haven't a snowball's chance in hell of having my studio look like this but I'll be happy if I can clear out enough space to store the new fabrics I'm buying and if I can walk from one side of the room to the other without risking my life. Yes, it really is that bad.

That's a much bigger room than my workroom! Poor Jerry, too much exercise!

Sounds like my place. Gets downright dangerous sometimes.
Send some of that energy down here when you are through. LOL

You know, Marilee, I think even a bigger room would look messy with me. I'm just hopeless :-)
Arline, a mountain goat would probably be the only one to safely get around my studio :-) And I wish I had energy to spare ..........

Oh for goodness sakes... it looks like a photo studio, not somewhere you'd let your hair down and get to creating! It's TOO clean, or maybe it's just me

Is it the winter thing that is forcing us to do this?
Last weekend I reorganized my art "area".
All the fabrics into one spot.
All the beads (well, a bunch of them) into another.
But, Doris, I swear, I just can not get rid of things.

I just "know" I will use it.....
