This should make anyone who feels guilty about an untidy craft area feel better. Because compared to my studio lately, I don't think anyone could possibly have a messier space without being featured on one of those hoarder reality shows.
When I got home from work today, I went out to look for a book and realized that I couldn't walk across either room without climbing over piles of stuff. No wonder I can't get anything done. Between not putting things away when I use them, getting out tubs of yarn to search through my stash, or adding to the stash without having a place to put new stuff, it's gotten totally out of control. Not to mention the stuff in the guest room. And the den.
I spent an hour this evening (all I could stand) putting stuff away where it belongs. And have promised myself to spend a few minutes a day at this until I'm done. On the plus side, I became reacquainted with a lot of yarn I had completely forgotten I had, and got a few ideas for projects to use up some of the stash. Have to make room -- Convergence is just around the corner!
To shame myself into keeping my promise, I present the before pictures of my studio. Now I will have to keep at it until I can post the after photos.
