Tidying up Elizabeth's Craft Room

Hello Everyone
...

Today I thought I would share some photos of my craft room. During a training event, my upline Amanda challenged us to organise and tidy our craft rooms.

...

Now I am an organisation freak - so everything does have it's place - but when I work my desk gets piled up with more and more stuff so eventually I am working on a 6" square of space. LOL

...

When I got back from training, I took a peek in my craft room, and this is what greeted me....


Hmmm - yes! And this is just the desk. The rest of the room was just as bad. So the next evening I decided to tackle the disaster area. When it was all done, it looked like this......






As you can see it took a while - it was dark by the time I was done. LOL

...

I am now trying to follow Amanda's advice and stop crafting 15 minutes before I have to, then tidying up so my craft room is neat and ready for the next time I want to create.

...

So confess - how tidy is your craft area right now? :)

...

Back in a couple of days with a project from my tidy craft room!

  2. I daren't post a pic of the state of mine! No matter how much I aim to keep it tidy, it always ends up looking like a typhoon's hit it. I'm still tip toeing through the mire!

  3. Your craft area is great! I am one of those OCD people and I have to clean up when done, even clean as I go along. My DD is the same way and her friend even worse, leaves my desk cleaner than when she started, love when she comes over.

  4. I also have the same problem. I end up with 6" of space. I try to tidy up before a project but sometimes I just want to get started and don't do it. I guess I know what I'll be doing tomorrow morning. Cleaning up my desk! TFS

  5. My craft area is looking pretty bad right now. I have to go and give it a quick cleanup this morning from last night's project. The worst is the floor, those little scraps of paper just go everywhere. And don't even get me started on the glitters/embossing powders...yikes.

  9. I love the storage unit for your ink pads! Where did you find it? I live in the midwest US and the only thing we have available is the spinning rack. I love that you can see all of your options at once! You have a wonderful workspace! I'm using our kitchen table right now and it is quite cluttered...
