Well I believe I may have said this at the start of 2012, that I planned to sort out my craft space... and my whole house actually, well before Lily arrived. Unfortunately of that plan the only room that really got the full make over was the nursery, which used to be the junk/spare/storage room. But in doing so, the other spare bedroom has since taken on that role. Not quite as severely but definitely a horrible sight to see.
But I can ignore that room by pulling the door shut haha It's another room in the house that is more cringe worthy than any other... the scrap room/office. It is really really bad. I'm not exagerating. There are piles of stuff covering most of the floor, other than the path from the door to the computer and another to the guillotine/paper shelves. Otherwise, it is just horrible.
I'll admit I've always been prone to clutter and am a bit of a hoarder. But a lot of this is because of my excessive habit of acquiring new craft products or keeping anything that might be useful. I have sooooooo much patterned paper for example, yet can't help buying new sheets that take my fancy. I have gadgets for so many purposes. Embellishments that scatter across every corner of the room and just random scraps and mess all over the carpet. If we are entertaining, this door is definitely close off since its right off the kitchen/living area of our house lol
So with my plan to kick off Project Life (whenever my goodies arrive... last recorded leaving Auckland a couple of hours ago by courier), I have seen so many lovely Project Life organisation ideas. In theory that would be wonderful, but I simply do not have the space with things the way they are. And if I am waiting impatiently for my stuff to arrive, I might as well get a start on getting this room sorted once and for all. Last year I started by investing in an Ikea cube shelf and it has helped a little. There was a short time when the floor was mostly visible too... but it was a long time ago. I guess its time to tackle the worst job ever!!!
Here is some PL organisation stations for motivation:
Something like this isn't possible with any clear desk space... and I certainly have no desk space. You will see what I mean below.
Here is what I'm facing (yes there is a desk under that):
Please don't judge me LOL
Told you it was bad. Really bad!
As you can see, there are no OCD traits here. Sometimes I wish I was a little bit OCD when it came to organisation. But no... instead I create myself big messes that take much more effort to clean up than if I had been clean to start with. Oh well... time to get into it. Wish me luck! And if you don't hear form me soon, chances are I was buried alive in the mess...
