Thoughts on a disastrous studio

There are no pictures for this blog post. I wouldn't dare stand the humiliation. lol
Seriously, has your studio gotten out of control? Well my studio has and for
various reasons.

My studio was the place to go and relax, my own space. It now belongs to the
things I supposedly need for my craft. I have a work table that I haven't seen the
bottom of in three months! I have had to move into other rooms to work.

If I was upset, all I needed to do was come into my studio and I would be calm.
Not so these days. It's such a mess I can no longer focus. I used to keep the door open
to my studio, now I close it.

I could tell you all the good reasons why it became a disaster, but they all seem like excuses to me
right now. Whether they are legit, does not matter, the end result is the same.

So for the last few weeks I have been feeling sorry for myself and now I'm  just plain sick of that too.

What should I do? Well truthfully I don't know where to begin. I would love to move everything
out of here and then just bring back in what I really need, right now. The problem with that idea is
storage of those items not brought back in. Perish the thought I would get rid of something.
One never knows when it might become important to a piece. lol although if the room is so bad,
and I cannot create then  there will not be an important piece.

This is not the type of blog post where I come up with a happy solution and you all see my
wonderful studio with everything in it's place.

Actually I'm posting my thoughts in hopes that someone has some ideas for me?
I have lots of storage cabinets. Also I am physically challenged so a mass clean-up
is out of the question.

A penny for your thoughts, better yet I will give you real dollars to help me clean this up. lol

Hope your studios are in better shape.



  1. What things do you need for your craft? We can begin from them. Here for you, friend.

    1. Hello dear friend and thank you for your support. I do a variety of things. I paint, collage, sew, knit, paper crafting, photography, rug hooking etc.. You name it, I've tried it and have the supplies for it. I'm fortunate that I'm able to try various things, but since the lady who cleans my house retired in Nov. things have gotten out of hand.

  2. You took the words right out of my mouth when you said:..."...I will give you real dollars to help me clean this up..." That's what I had to do...get somebody else to do it!! And it worked!! ^_^

    1. I have tried to find someone to help me organize things. The lady that was helping retired in November. I have someone new to help with the cleaning, but she is not creative herself and wants to know why I have all this stuff. lol I wonder too.
