Clean up day.........

Every time I walked into my studio this is the mess I saw.  Maybe if the tops were tilted like this photo, they would be clean all of the time.




By the time 2 episodes of Unforgettable were over I had made some progress.   Now maybe I'll really work in here.

We all have the same trouble some more so than others. Today I plan on getting my computer area cleaned up. Had to junk the PC. Have fun sewing now. Chris

My Creative Space looks like the before photo right now... In the midst of a project.... which I though I could just whip right up.... HA!
I think you need to explain... that little thing with the clips on it!

The block on your table is just beautiful and looks like pieces of glass in all different shapes and sizes. I don't think you're alone in having messy work tables. I believe most creative people share the same problem.

The first picture just shows you had been in there having fun! Nice photo of you and your great grandson. Enjoy this lovely weather!

Just a day to clear your space? Well done! Lovely to see the fabrics that you'd been working with - great choices!

I like the block on your table too! My son went back to France on Saturday and today is my day for re-quilting his bedroom, it looks tidy because I stuffed everything away in different places to accomodate him and now I have got to find it all again!

Seeing your before photo makes me feel better about my work space- it looks very much the same. It's a never-ending process with creative projects, and like you, I get to point where nothing can move forward till things get tidies up a bit. You did a good job and it looks ready for what's next.

One must make a mess in order to create such beauty as you do.

Now that's a novel idea....tilting the table tops! I see lots of creativity in process there.

Congrats on the cleaned off surfaces -- no bets on how long they'll stay that way!

Every one of us that has a studio or the like, sure can relate to how quickly our work tables get cluttered with our projects. It always feels good to straighten it up and with hopes to keep it that way.... yah right.

I see your remote there too.... what would we do without our t.v. to LISTEN too as we work . (*._,*)

Sure is a good thing I don't feel compelled to post pics of my sewing room! It is such a mess! Much smaller, too, than your space, and there isn't much spare room, so unless I put everything away all the time, it quickly gets messy. There just isn't room for things to be out. But that's mostly my own fault, because I have too much fabric, which takes up all the space!

If you think this is bad, you really have no concept of how bad a mess can be. Your floor is clear for example..... lols

My husband says that I have an innate need to cover all horizontal surfaces. He's probably right; they're all underneath a lot of stuff. :)
Google Nancy Crow's studio if you want to see a "mess". She says it needs to be out for her to be creative.
