Crafty work space


Some people love working amidst chaos; anything too structured makes them feel inhibited and their creativity is stifled

Not me.

I'm the opposite.

When everything is not in its place (oh, and everything has a place), I feel out of control and scattered, and become easily frustrated with my projects. Add to that the fact that I have about 1.5 square feet of work space and at any given time am juggling anywhere from 27-32 projects, and well, uh, I get frustrated quite often. 

I guess I know what I am doing tomorrow...

(Organize, purge, straighten, put away, clean.)

I need to do the same thing. My work space is clear but my supplies are less then organized in their baskets. Thanks for the reminder...I guess.

It happens to the best of us, I am in need of a little organizing on my desk right now as well. My biggest problem though are the kids bringing in things to show me and leaving it there. Instead of taking the things off I move them around until I get fed up.

Sara said...

I'm the same way!

I love the idea of reconciling the dream and the reality. Continuing to embrace the dream while sitting comfortably with the reality. smile. It's all of life isn't it! Love your site.

When I start a project I like everything nice and neat.

Kristi said...

Oh, I know what you mean! I struggle with organization (or the lack thereof :).

Mandi said...

Oh how I feel your pain! I had to do this same straighten routine last week. I lose all creativity once the mess gets too far gone.

I stumbled upon your blog, but love it and will be back! Thanks for sharing all your creativity.

Sara said...

i'm the exact same way! I'm constantly putting things back in their places and re-organizing!

love the color in your workspace!

Katie said...

I really need to get my work space in order! Where did you get that great hutch above your desk? I've been looking for something just like it.

Pam said...

Love your workspace and yes, it is difficult to craft in chaos. After each project I have to clean up before starting another.

I'm one of those that works better in chaos. I like it organized, but it hardly ever is. Good thing it doesn't bother me! ha. Love your office. Cute.
