mission impossible

your mission should you choose to accept is to clean up the 'studyio' (study and craft studio combined)...
that was the mission i gave myself on Monday, it is now Thursday and i still have a little way to go...
i have to cut myself some slack...on Monday i did find a HUGE curled up huntsmen on the floor which totally freaked me out and each time i thought about clearing the mess i wondered how many more might be lurking plus i was out of storage space. so i came up with the cunning plan of heading to the thrift shop to find a suitable cupboard...time wasting is my current job :)
as luck would have it a perfect storage solution was purchased but not able to be picked up until my dear darling husband came home with the Ute. so cleaning was postponed till the following day. anyhow happy to say that i have before and after photos and i still have a little way to go but the chore is not so mammoth and i can see the light or floor as the case may be @_@
the before shot, truth be told NONE of this is my mess....it all belongs to my 3 darling children....
and after, still not quite perfect but getting there. ignore the flooring...flooring, light fittings and curtains/window treatments are next on our list of home improvements.
the sewing machine area before....
and after the bunny hiding in the corner is my Christmas present from last year... we have started doing secret Santa with a twist, 'secret trashy Santa' present has to be under $10 and as trashy or tacky as can be. yes that is a bunny mirror, go figure?
real eggs popped in real nest in amongst my little collection of curiosities.
this is part of the room pre storage solution, the mess is growing legs and moving across the floor...
there it is! i moved the gorgeous old trunk over in front of the shelving and moved the new storage solution into place....
and here is a before shot of my fabric and ribbon stash....
and here it is after...yes this is the LITTLE BIT LEFT TO CLEAN...but now that i have an extra place to put things i can delegate shelves to certain crafting supplies...or at least that is the plan :)
there you have it...i best be off to finish the fabric stash or at least have a coffee and contemplate my next step...

Ah yes Rosey, studios sure can get messy quickly... especially with little helpers around!!
It's looking good and now you'll be even more inspired to create.

I think having a coffee before the next step is a lovely idea! I am so happy that you shared your organizing project with us! I'm working on sorting my craft/shop materials too.

Have a beautiful week!

For some reason I cant leave a comment at you other blog -

Everything looks lovely. I was just talking to Tina and she and the girls are coming to visit and were thinking we would come up to the markets. The date will be 18 December. Do you think we could have lunch and catch up and invite Julie as well?

Let me know

Rosey, relax, you ain't see nothing yet. My whole living room looks like that everyday, because I don't own a studio! but hey glad to see my embroidery pattern still inhabits your place :)
