Take a look, friends. It's not pretty...
This is the most disturbing area of my room for me. I have to straddle things on the floor to get to other things, then things fall or get stepped on. It's crazy!
I hate having to lift bins to get to other bins. This little bin is filled with all sorts of latest purchases or item I just haven't taken the time to put away. Ick!
This is the corner I was talking about. I almost wrench my back trying to get that big rotary trimmer out of the mess. Papers, journals, ribbons,.. there's no rhyme or reason to why this is all here.
Opposing corner of the room. My closet. Seems not so terrible at first glance. But again, stuff on the floor that I have to straddle to get to the stuff in the closet. Too much stuff!!!
I even have just random stuff stuck behind the door. See the wet nap? And some piece of ribbon? What IS that?! Oh, it's a name tag from about 7 years ago from an event I did.
This is the same corner in front of the closet. Alterables are just thrown back there, stuff from CHA is thrown on top, paper is piled up, and the Cricut machine is on the floor in front of my pretty vintage cabinet. Again, I have to move stuff to get to stuff. Nothing makes me crazier!
The closet sort of wraps around to the right with this hard to reach area that I tend to just chuck stuff into. ARGH!!!
No reasoning to this space at all. A big piece of burlap, tickets, Ranger inks, and a layout tucked on its side. HELP!!
My desk is so full I have two small bookstands on the left end just to hold more stuff. Random stuff, of course. Mail scale, calendar, Ranger U tags, boxes and magazines.
Do you hear me hyperventilating?!
My work table is not that bad, however it needs help. Too many things just sitting there.
To the right of my work table is my long table. This is the left end where everything is crowded together. A little too crowded. I literally have paper and card stock in ALL areas of my room. All four corners. I'm NOT KIDDING!
I have to keep a small table to the right of my big table, just to lay more stuff. I really want to say "crap" but I'm trying to keep calm here. Cardstock on the floor, on the table, cords everywhere, piles of random stuff.
WHAT IS MY PROBLEM?!
THIS MUST STOP!
We are soon going to replace the carpet so I need to get things in gear and fast! I want to start creating again and I just can't in this environment. I somehow feel a blog rant will help motivate me. If you're interested in this type of thing, come back and visit next week as I begin the organization process. My vow is to purge as much as possible, get the flow going a little better in here, and not spending a bunch of money on containers and more stuff.
Wish me luck!
