I have to make a confession. I am a clutter-a-holic when it comes to papercrafting and anything to do with paper. I am exposing a hidden area of my life in the attempt to motivate myself to persevere toward a clean and organized craft room that doesn’t spill out into various and sundry places throughout my house. It is my personal belief that many crafters are wired this way.
Please don’t recommend Fly Lady or anyone else. I know all about them and have given “them” a whirl. I’m just a tad bit deficit in the area of keeping my mind focused on one thing (even for 15 minutes – it’s sad but true). I have even resorted to calling my friend and some time co-designer, Cheyenne, to come over and whip me into shape. She doesn’t have a wandering attention span. In fact, if I tend to wander about, she reigns me in by bellowing, “Get in here, we aren’t finished with ___________.” I, usually, after a rebuttal, apply myself to the needed task. Hopefully, she is managing her time so she can make it over here and help out a friend in desperate need.
Anyway, here are my BEFORE pictures (please don’t judge – you could be walking in my shoes one day):
And, there you have it! The dining/breakfast table, a temporary table for the Big Shot cutting (I had a class Saturday and I’ll have another one tomorrow), the kitchen bar top/counter, one desk in the office, the paper shelf, the floor, and my desk. Before you ask, I did make both challenge cards and fourteen bible study cards at this very desk yesterday and today. I did misplace quite a few polymer stamps, which were right in front of me, amongst this jungle mess.
I hope you can laugh with me and say a pray. I would like to get this back in order by tonight (LOL). That WOULD be a miracle. Well, if Cheyenne comes over it will happen. I WILL post AFTER pics or in progress updates as they are made.
Have a GREAT DAY!
