I have neglected my studio over the winter. When I say neglected, I mean no dusting, cleaning or straightening whats so ever. The creative mind is a messy one. I had puddles of fabric, piles of paper and loose threads everywhere. So in an attempted to gain more creative space, instead of cleaning my space, I spent a couple of days on 'Craigslist' looking for a desk, or cabinet or whatever struck my fancy to add to my space. Well, I found a fantastic desk, a beautiful white desk. It was perfect! It matched my cabinets in my room. It didn't take me long to realize, I needed to clean my room to make room for my fantastic desk.... so last night when I got home I tore my room apart, organizing this and that, wishing I was better at organizing my fabric and picking up. I also owe my husband and son a huge Thank you for helping me pick up my desk in a slushy, wet snowstorm. As we drove home, my son held a tarp in place out the back window in the truck so that my desk stayed protected from the elements. Luckily we didn't have far to drive, he risked his bare hand and the cold for me. I should make some cookies or something like that for Thomas.
So I took some pictures to share, proof that my room is somewhat organized from time to time. I did not take before pictures. I was too embarrassed to take before pics. Just take my word for it, my space was horrible. It was easier to pack my stuff up and go on retreat then to clean my space. How would I describe my corner of the world, well, it's more like organized chaos. So here are my after pictures.
|I'm always looking for new ways to organize my supplies. I have labeled boxes and bins. I'm always looking for cute and functional ways to store things.|
|Does anyone have a good system to organize fabric? I'm up for suggestions...|
I hope you have a wonderful weekend and find some time to quilt!
