Crafty Space!

Hello! :) How are ya?! How are ya?! I have been super, crazy, busy the last week! My home school group is getting ready to have our graduation and Prom and I have been running around like a crazy person trying to get things done!

One of my Crafty Critter buddies, Meg (hiya Meg!!), posted a challenge to us this week! She wanted to see our craft space! I am sooo embarrassed to admit that my craft space looks like a tornado whipped through it twice!! LOL I have been promising myself to get my space all organized and clean and together, but I have been so short on time and when it comes down to it...if I only have a little bit of time to spare I would rather craft in a mess than spend it cleaning and organizing! LOL Hence the laundry piled to the ceiling and the toilets that need to be scrubbed! (Sorry honey!!) Big cheesy grin! Fortunatley for me I have a wonderful very understanding hubby! :)

Anyhow, I almost graciously bowed out of this challenge! My space is just too too messy to share, but then I figured Oh what the heck!! Hopefully this tiny little sneak peek will be incentive for me to kick my own tail into gear and get the organizing into full on production mode! (I really cannot believe I am putting this out there!) LOL This is a piece of my stamping space! I usually lug everything out into the dinning room to work because I like to be with my family! That means the dinning room table gets piled high with project upon project! I didn't take any photos of that yet though! Doing this has sparked an even greater interest in getting things organized! Once I get things cleaned up and organized I will take more pictures and share those! :)

Here is my little messy sneak peek! I keep tons and tons of stuff in these drawers! Paper, stamps, embellishments, ribbon, stamp cleaner, bling, adhesives, pens, markers, magazines, stickers, punches, scissors...



Crazy, huh?! LOL What a mess!! I promise to take and share more photos of my stamp area soon! Have a super day! I will be back soonest! :)

You know girl it's actually honestly not that bad. It's great that you have the wonderful orgnizing cabinets. I understand about the kitchen table, that is my craft area. ;)

Moira said...

I agree with Melanie... it isn't as bad as you think!!

I definitely have been leaning towards getting some of those white towers.. I just don't know where I would put them!

Catherine said...

LOL! Looks about right! I am slowly trying to reorganize my schtuff, but it is soooo daunting! For the amount you have, it looks rather tidy!

Hey girl....that looks pretty organized to me. I know when I start a project, I dont usually finish it so leave it on the table. Then instead of finishing that project, I start another one. I have a scrapbook room and 2 6 foot tables, but where do I end up scrapbooking. Upstairs on the dining room table, so I can hear what the kids are up to and be around the family. It is also too cold downstairs at the moment.
Thanks for sharing...

I don't think you're doing so bad AnnMarie! I think its impossible to keep a craft space organized - no matter how hard I try its a mess again 2 days after I clean it!

Colleen said...

It's not that bad! The drawers definitely help when trying to find something!

Looks like you are organize. I lug my stuff around also so I can be by the family.

April said...

I don't think it looks that bad! At least it's all in containers!!! Not out all over the place!
Thanks for Sharing!
