This weekend I took the time to organize up my workspace, it was pretty terrible. I hate working on stuff in a messy, cramped area so things have been pretty stagnant in the creativity department lately. As one of my goals for 2010 is to stop coming up with new ideas and follow through with the millions I already have, I needed to clean up the place and get to work. Want to see? Yeah, I thought so.
So, here it is looking
like crap messy. Honestly, this is actually pretty good. It's usually much worse, but the chances of me actually posting that are slim to none.
Then after several hours of blood (stabbed myself once), sweat (forgot to turn off the heater before I started hauling stuff around) and tears (little mementos of my kitty, Princess Franki) the beast that is the supply closet was cleaned up and organized.
I actually have table space again.
Stuff. Those albums are where I store my ATCs and Postcrossing stuff.
I made those shelves back in May, 2009. They were some up-cycled boxes that I originally used in a project for a sculpture class. I just painted them, added some oil cloth and made little cherries in the corner with felt and buttons.
My fabric stash, except for a tiny bit in the closet. This section is also known as where I keep the nice baskets my cats love to scratch.
However, if you move anything to get to the actual fabric, this automatically happens-
The rest of my half of the room and the beast of a closet. That's the little desk that ol' Bessie lives in.
The artwork in my sewing corner. The kitty is Princess Franki.
My ribbon rack. I should say, the ribbon I have that fits onto this rack because there is a ton more. I have a huge problem with decorative trim. This rack was originally a spice rack that I bought for less than a buck, then cleaned up and painted.
Now that the closet is clean, I can see this sexiness again. For those of you who aren't already aware of my Bobby D addiction, he is my man.
Awesome cart action. I love this thing! Since it has most of my painting stuff on or in it, I can roll it to wherever in the house I am painting and have a surface to set my water and brushes on. Oh yeah.
Inside the closet aka a bunch of stuff. I know it just looks piled up, but compared to what it was, it's wonderful.
Mmmmm, paint! Much better than before, no?
Later this week I'll post pictures of the inspiration board by my workspace. It's full of great little bits.
Thanks for looking at where I make my stuff. Hopefully, it wasn't too boring for you. Have a craftastic day!
