My Mess

WARNING! Viewing these pics might leave you either blinded in disbelief or identifying with my plight. Believe me, it is taking all I've got to post these pics and not be totally ashamed of myself in the process. Oh I do envy all of you who have a real studio to brag about as your special place. I have a space too and it is like parking a bus in a space meant for a Volkswagon. I am bursting at the seams in my little spot. I have cleaned it and straightened it up many times. My main problem though is when I need something I have to move "this" to get to "that" and in my haste I again have another mess to deal with. So I bought some containers and will organize better and hopefully that will solve some of my problems. I think we have all "been there, done that" when we are looking for a certain pattern or the necessary supplies to use and start to feel so unorganized. Any suggestions are welcome......and next time I post pics of my room it will be something to smile about :)

Yes, some dust, and there is a desk top.

Yes, I do know where everything is!


Close one eye or both eyes when viewing, ha.

Yes, there is one spot that is organized.

The closet is full from floor to ceiling, and organized.

Pathway to the computer desk and sewing machine.

Tons of books/patterns among the "stuff".

   Please don't think badly of me. I do believe in a clean house, a place for everything and everything in it's place. Sometimes it is easier to grab what you need and to close the door behind you.....alas the door is blocked and can't be closed unless I move the "stuff". I could use some shelves, but now that my wood working hubby is sick I will make do with totes and containers. I am sure some of you probably envy my small space. Those who do might not have but a small closet to call their own. We make the best of what we have. It is just hard for me to believe that at one time this room belonged to my oldest daughter and I use to keep a couple of boxes of books and yarn in my bedroom closet. In my interest of all things crafty I have created a monster room. It may be a mess, but it is my mess and I still love it!   P.S. I will keep ya all posted on my progress :)     XOXOXOXO

    I am enjoying skipping around on your blog reading posts. Your husband isn't well? I am so sorry. My hubby has vascular dementia, Parkinson's and has had a couple of strokes so I have a heart of compassion for those who are not well. I hope to get to know you better. Love your dishcloths. I crochet but I never learned to knit.
