My mess

edited on June 1st
This big fat mess in my art room is a result of me working full time in the library.
In the library everything is in it's place to the point of me becoming cross-eyed.
Sometimes I bring things home and dump them in this room. It is awful. I have actually had to do art on the floor.
It will be cleaned up soon.
Today was my last day of work!

The ceiling is clean...
from top shelf moving down to work area books on work area too
How can anyone work here?


  1. Gemma, I accomplished one half of the room today and tomorrow I will do the other half. You can do it. Glad you got involved. There's nothing like a good cleaning. Hope your day was good, have a great week.

  2. Your's is not tooooo bad. It could be worse. Tee Hee.

  3. Hehe. My daughter has a studio room like that. She finally tore it apart and reorganized. She was inspired to work again!

    It's amazing how much an artist needs to have on hand, and it must take constant attention to keep it straight. But there is something about an artist's melange that is very appealing to me. :)

  4. Hi Gemma. I'm going to do a post about you joining in the Project Use it or lose it. You'll feel better once you de-clutter. I am already feeling better. I think another bloggie buddie is going to join. Have a great week.

  5. Hey looks just like my house! creative minds and all..I am going to de-clutter this spring.

  6. mine is tidy or partially tidy at the moment.. because of house selling.. but back when I use to quilt & make cloth dolls, my creative space was such a mess.. it did my head in! when I create, I make mess.. or rather I create mess.. I don't put away as I go because I am in such a creative frenzy that if I took time to tidy as I went, I would lose my train of thought
    you will feel so much freer & lighter when you declutter.
    walk gentle with yourself xoxo
