My Creative Space

For a few brief moments today I did consider photographing my workroom to show you the state it's currently in.  And then I came to my senses.  I don't think that you'd believe that I didn't stage the photo, I mean really, you just couldn't image that a) someone could create such a mess and b) that the same person would actually continue to work in there with it like that.

Imagine if you will, what happens when someone sorts stock to go to six different stores and for markets...  Then they realise that they are getting short on made pieces, so they go through their fabric supplies to start making some more resin pendants...  After that they remember that they really need to make some more brooches, so they had better get some fabric out for those...  And well, then some of the brooch pieces need to be painted and left out to dry... Oh, and that's right, they have a kimono fabric sale coming up really soon so kimonos and fabric pieces need to come out of storage...  And then there's the bag from the craft show that they went to last week and still haven't unpacked... And the box of beading supplies they brought up from downstairs (it usually lives on the dining table - the dining table that is always covered in craft supplies so can never actually be used for dining) so that they could be played with earlier in the week, and haven't yet been returned... Oh, and the boxes that they had to send jewellery to one store in wasn't big enough, so a different box had to come off the shelf and have its contents (wooden bag handles) emptied and they are still waiting to be put away... And then there's the pile of paperwork on the desk waiting to be attended to, but in actual fact is being ignored... Add that to the storage boxes that already live on the floor... 

By this time, there was a tiny spot on the floor where I could sit to work....

Can you understand why I decided not to take any photos?


For some neater, prettier, less manic creative spaces, Kootoyoo is the place to go.

Yes, I do understand! It sounds like my place. It's why I decided not to print anything new this week for our Open Studio. Too much stuff, too much mess and too many distractions! Good luck. x

Sounds like you need an assistant.
You make me tired just reading that (albeit a touch envious that you get to play with so much wonderful crafty stuff). Best of luck sorting it all out.

You need a personal assistant to come through and tidy and do all of your paper work, package and send orders and other odd jobs :) Good luck with making :)

I had to laugh! My space is exactly the same and our dining table...I have to clear it every Sunday for our only family meal together (hubby works long hours all week and Sun is the only day we are all together at tea time). Welcome to chaos....I keep decluttering but it comes back so quickly :-)
