A Tidy Workshop is a Sign Of a Sick Mind

Should I clean this up a bit?

I don't know...
It looks pretty daunting.

I decided to follow the advice I often gave my children when they were faced with cleaning their tornado swept rooms; Just pick up one thing and put it where it belongs, then pick up one more thing and put it where it belongs.

Repeat until you can see the floor.

I followed this sage advice for two hours.
The bottom four photos are what it looks like now.
Not much difference.
You know that TV show called hoarders?
Do you think I should worry?

I am definitely NOT EVER going to be featured in the magazine, "Where Women Create."

Loved your post.. loved the title.
And I so agree!

Yeah, but I'll bet you know where everything is, don't you?

Ha ha. This was funny... Love your workshop. And I'm sure you do know where everything is. People who always have everything so perfect and neat are so annoying. lol.

Me too, Lynn! My crafting place is a mess....and I love the songs on my playlist, too! I'm always reading you shouldn't have music on your blog but I don't care - I figure it's for me and if someone doesn't like it they should go to a quieter blog. lol I'll look for you in the new mag..."Where REAL Women Create". :) Nancy

I think WWC should have a section that shows creative spaces in action - mess and all!

This reminds me of our garage. It's pretty scary in there.

It definately looks better and no you are not a hoarder.

LOL, it looks like my artsy room looks most of the time :) I dread cleaning it up and it needs it right now.

Thanks for stopping by! Your room is one I wish I had room to have. My house is so much smaller than the old one that I don't have a place to be nice and messy.
