I have been a slacker. I have wandered around blogs and websites for projects while I have many to complete here at home. I have so many ideas of things I want to make that it is silly that I just haven't been motivated.

 I am blessed to have a dedicated sewing room. The room is such a mess that sometimes I putz around in there thinking of how to better organize it all and then I am stuck and wander out with little to show for my time. I think I haven't taken ownership of this room yet. Another perspective I have had is that I am trying to ask too much of this room. I have my scrapbook items crowding out some of this space and I pile office type things of my own in there.

 I am a piler, no doubt about it. I need to just take charge of this situation and tell myself that it is my personal space and I can do what I want with it. So to spur me on I am going to show and tell of my progress. This is a room that I close the door quickly to and don't offer visitors a glimpse to do so is my way of sharing this project of becoming the proud owner of my own special spot where I will relax and create.

Everything has its own space....sorta!

My husband took the rods out of the closet and I promised it would be so neat and organized. The totes look great and while I am getting there I still have some organizing to do.  Now I have to find a place to put all the extra tote bags and things that are hanging on the doors and laying in front of the closet.

It has such a long way to go yet and I hope that by sharing my clutter with you it will spur me on to getting serious about making this room beckon me inside for bouts of inspiration and curiosity!


  1. Don't worry that is the creativty jumping out.

  2. I am a piler, too!!! I have piles of my crafts all over the house even though we have a craft room! Don't feel bad about your creative clutter. I don't think your's looks that bad. Have a nice day! Twyla

  3. Another piler here, too! Every once in a while I just sort through each pile and put everything in its proper place. I think your closet looks great! Good idea to motivate yourself by sharing your progress with us :)

  4. Congratulations on taking pride in your own creating-space! Virginia Woolf wrote an entire treatise about that (A Room of One's Own), and if you ever doubt the rightness of doing this you can check in with the late, great Virginia and be reminded :-)

    Piles = good!
