I Need Help. For Reals. {WOYWW}

My entire studio is an ever loving DISASTER! I need to really cull, but I have done that and feel like I really use most of the supplies I currently have. Actually...most of my supplies aren't the problem...they are stored and organized well...I just seem to have a bunch of 'other' stuff around that I don't know what to do with. I might have to do the whole...box it up, put it in the basement and if I don't need it for six months get rid of it kind of thing. I don't know. I just know it is a mess.

WOYWW 1.5.11

This is my desk right now. Crazy, I know! And this is ALL stuff I use regularly! Hence it being ON my desk and all. I'm less concerned about this, though, because at least I know that everything on here HAS a home and if I just start the process I can get that cleaned up fairly quickly...it's the rest of the room that is still a problem! HA!

Do you see my new clay tools on there, though? I'm wicked excited about those! BETTER sculpting from JINGLE on the way! I will certainly use them for polymer clay stuff, but I think I can really use them for detail stuff on paper clay, too! YAY!!!

WOYWW 1.5.11

Also, sitting there casually upon my desktop, you see the FABULOUS stamps that I am giving away in yesterday's post!!!! YAY! If you haven't checked that out yet, click here if you want to enter!

So...my goal is to have this desk cleaned off before next Wednesday. I'm not promising a clean one on Wednesday, as I might use it after I clean it...HA! But, at least it needs an overhaul before I do that. I will work on the room, too, but the desk needs to happen first. Then the room. Then happy Jingle. Just say'n.

I hope you have a FABULOUS Wednesday! For more What's On Your Workspace posts check out The Stamping Ground!

What's wrong with your desk? Am sure it looks like any other desk where an artist works. You would love to think your desk and room would be neat, but if it is, I am sure you won't be creating. :-) That is my excuse and I am sticking too it!

~atleast you have a desk!!! my area is the kitchen table and the small space in our entry way...kind of makes it hard for people to use the front door when i have been creating away...hehehe...heres to wishing you some determination on organizinga bit...you know as soon as you pack stuff up and haul to the basement you will be yearning for that one specific thing that has been packed away...good luck my dear friend!!! much love light and blessings be with you~

Jan said...

Looks like a big bunch of fun!!

Jamie Lane said...

You need a side table or a couple big bins or perhaps an addition, already!? :) Can't wait to see what you sculpt!

craftattack said...

If I dared to take a pic of my mess you would know how tidy your desk is!!

Veronica said...

Well, you have a desk AND a room!
I WISH I had that problem. ;-)

haha...I see that fabbie paper from yesterday's SSD card...love that stuff....it looks like my work space...sigh.

Kai said...

MESS? Where? All I see is a lot of fun-in-progress and creativity-waiting-to-happen! When I moved to this house with it's HUGE craft room, my Virgo self was thrilled 'cause I just KNEW everything would ALWAYS be in its place! BWAHAHAHAHAHA! It's MORE like everything is always all OVER the place. But you know WHAT, Jen? It makes me HAPPY, all this creative disarray. Tells me I'm alive & creating! So PLAY, sweet girl! And OH, how I DO love those coffee stamps. What's NOT to love about my #1 food group: COFFEE? BIG HUGS TO YOU, lil' Partner!

Regina said...

Hugs,

Marlene said...

Oh dear. If THAT'S a holy mess, you don't want to see the hell in my work area.

Susie said...

Good luck with that tackle:-)

Terry said...

I forget what I have and need some serious help also! Not sure how to organize to actually be able to locate all that I have! Maybe I will turn our 4 bedroom house into a 3!!! Happy Days!

angie said...

I just want to come over and organize your goodies for you. Looks like some FUN items.

Michelle said...

that is how my desk looks after a project. It always feels so good to put everyone back in their home ready for the next project.

Carola Bartz said...

It seems quite a lot of us are struggling with messy desks (and rooms) right now. Oh well, the year is still young...

Lisa said...

I LOVE your play space. Look at all of that yumminess!! (And don't worry. I had to dig out my keyboard to type this.)

Cheryl said...

I'm in the process of cleaning my whole entire studio! I figured the people at that hoarders show heard what a mess it was and was probably wanting to do a show on it... so I decided to clean it :-)I've got the thrift store people coming tomorrow to pick up my extra stuff! (I've been known to pull stuff out of that pile lol) Good luck to you on cleaning!

Faerie Moon Creations said...

Don't refer to it as a mess - think of it as I like to call it "organized chaos!" ;) Theresa

Amy said...

right there with you with my messy scrap area.....but I love having everything out where I can see it easily! Good luck getting yours organized...I've tried to organize mine and it just ends up looking the same again!

Minxy said...

Tracy said...

I don't see anything wrong with your desk, teehee. I lose my big red ATG on my desk. Now when that happens then you have a problem. Did I just admit I have a problem?

Electra said...

You don't need help Jingle. You need therapy. I know cus I do too. We should go together and get a group discount.

Susan Allan said...

Clay tools...looking forward to seeing what you create.

Tertia said...

Maybe we could start a support group. I think I might need some serious help cleaning out my stuff too.

Lynn Stevens said...

mine gets that way some times too, took me two days to clean it last week. LOL

karen said...

Your desk is not messy it is just crafty and creative! Whatever you are doing, it is working for you because you make truly amazing projects!

Creative messiness is great! Pick it up once in a while and motor on. #95

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

Wow, you have your work cut out for you if this is your "easy to pick up" part of the room. I know by now it's probably in much better shape and you're already crafting and creating. Happy WOYWW on Friday from #16.

peggy aplSEEDS said...

just this minute, my desk looks somewhat like yours. but i'm about to do some tidying up because there is no more space to work on comfortably.

Chris in CT said...

Your desk is quite neat compared to mine. I really have to get into my scraproom and do a major decluttering/reorginizing. By the way...cute stamps!!
