{crap space}

my craft space
oops, that should be "craft space". ;) i need a professional organizer. but really, what good what it do? i can clean, clean, clean, then after one project i will have worked myself into a tiny corner of my work table. and i don't mean to complain but sometimes i get overwhelmed with having so much shit stuff i don't know where to begin...and believe it or not there is relative rhyme and reason here... sort of.

It did take her hours...eight, I think. Anyway, your's will get there too. You've been producing some pretty amazing things out of tight corners, for most of your life. :o) Keep it up.

hey Joleen, i am in total awe of your mom's sPace... but i can totally relate to yours - he he... i started to notice that my scrapping style is grab whatever is easy and convenient and I always grab from my loose odds and ends bin {you know, the bin you throw all your leftover scraps in promising yourself to sort later by color in neat little file folders.. yeah right!... )

that is exactly why i am not into crafting as much as i could be! i hate to have too much stuff... i feel overwhelmed with what i do have now even!

i am such a clutter-phobe.

your mom's place looks great!

I am in total envy of your mom's workspace.

Mine would be similar to that if someone would just freakin' drive me to Walmart! THREE Walmarts in the Savannah area but none at biking distance. GRR.

Give it up Joleen, you are an artist! We are alike.. just live by my motto: " I am NOT messy, I'm CREATIVE!!"

I love Heather's comment. Just be creative and be yourself. You forgot to tell everybody how long my space didn't look like that and how long it probably will stay that way. NOT It does look pretty right now though. Just ao you know....when I'm creating, my work space becomes smaller and smaller, and smaller.......

in due time Joleen. As you know I cannot have too much stuff, it stifles me. But for you STUFF is essential in your art. Though your space may not be as neat as your moms you will need to find what will work best for you! It will get organized when you are inspired to do so. You will find that by having it all organized not only will you eliviate the anxiety we tend to create but it will allow you to expand with your creativity. At least this way you will know what you have to work with :) Don't try to compete or live up to any one elses expectations but your own. You will be a happier more fulfilled person. Love ya and can't wait to see what comes next from that mind of yours!!!!

Your mom's space is gorgeous!! And yours is not far behind at all, Joleen. It's nearly 75% there. And you're such a creative thinker that I know it will be just as fab and perfect for you when you get the time to do to it what you will.

I've gotten mine, "sort of" organized. Not great but sort of....there's not a 2 foot coating of crap on the ground anymore:) and almost all the stuff is off the desk into rubbermaid containers!

good luck!

gee, a lot of craft stuff! I am green with envy. I guess I need to ask Santa for a Craft Care Package, hee, hee.

I need to be more creative with what I've got. Keep up the good work.
