My life is a MESS...lol

Let's face it - my life, or rather my space is a DISASTER, and that's probably why I'm not stamping lately. After a long and much needed talk with my friend Kyla Maestas who also has a mess on her hands, we've decided to do something about it. Anyone who wants to join in the challenge can post a comment here with a link to their blog with your "before" shots of your space. No mess is too much for this challenge. Just be brave and share - we've ALL been there. Here is my BEFORE picture... embarrassing but true (and you gotta click this pic to see it in bigger and more detailed glory):


Remember, of course, that creativity is a messy process! LOL

I can't wait until I have an after shot for you! And, since this is only maybe 1/5 of my total stamping space, I may have to do interim shots for you as I progress, because this is a HUGE project, believe me. And, when I'm done, my husband will be so proud! ; )

This could also mean some serious blog candy and retired stamp sets for sale, too... I gotta get organized if it kills me! So, keep your eyes open and tuned in, you never know what will be coming next!

I believe the sign of a creative and productive mind is a cluttered work area.

It drives my husband nuts, but he can gauge where in a book I am by how pig sty my desk has become. :)

Your creative mess is a challenge within itself gilrfriend! I ususally leave just enough room to be able to use my cutter and make a card, otherwise I too am all over the place! As soon as I put everything in its place (2 hours later) I start a new project and that is that. here we go again! LOL! There are times when I think it is hard to get inspiration when everyhting is a diaster, and other times I like the fact that I can see my stuff out! LOL! Deb

I'm so glad my table isn't the only one that looks like that right now!

I totally agree with you! My dh would have a heartattack if I ever cleaned up my "creative space". However, I don't have pics to show you, he'd have an absolutely hissy fit.

hey on the bright side you own a lot of stuff:) And when I clean big, mostly since I move so much and have boxes stored away all the time I find stuff I forgot I had and its like christmas:) Although in my case its mostly kitchen stuff like glasses etc.

Good luck in tiding it all up and hope you have a nice weekend!

Thanks for stopping by my page...I know that I only got my space clean in a day for 2 reasons...motivation and I didn't have a very big mess to start with. BUT, I am jealous...because I can tell that you have a LOT more stuff than I do! You can't make too much of a mess outta a small amount of stuff. ;) Good luck to you!

A messy stamping room is not the sign of a bad housekeeper. It's the sign of a very creative stamper with more important things to do. :)
