Small Creative Spaces Blog Hop 3/27/2012

Have your scrapping and paper crafts taken over an area of your home and that tiny cramped space is soooooo crowded there is barely room for you to sit let alone craft!!!! Oh my, have I hit the nail on the head --- oops, never mind there's no room even for a nail!!!! Us ingenious crafters always can find a space to craft and play with our paper and we're just going to do that and show you our craft space...

Now, don't call the show "Hoarders" on us because they will think we are going to be buried alive but we know better .... If you happened to stumble upon my blog today, I congratulate you that you found your way but would love for you to find your way to the door again --- see, its over there beyond that bag with the new papers and glue gun -- to the beginning of the hop which is at Lynne's blog You should have arrived from Kimberly's showing of her space!!!!No, it doesn't get larger if you look at it through a magnifying glass!!!!

OK, now I have to warn you, this could get scary! Yesterday, I decided that I was going to "clean up" for this hop. Well, that turned into deciding to put a bigger table in here. And we all know, that when you decide to start rearranging and organizing, it can get pretty ugly! lol I am still a red hot mess! BUT I can tell you where everything is that I use on a regular basis. The only things I don't know where they are, are the things that have been missing for so long, I forgot I even have them! lol Brace yourselves and enjoy! :)

These are ALL stickers!!! The top sheets are all ones I found in my cleaning yesterday! lol

This is walking into my room, with my new bigger table!

This is supposed to be where I paper piece, key words, SUPPOSED TO! lol THIS is organized chaos at its best!

Cricut, paper and my big bulletin board, where I hang various things :) This is also where all my "paper work" gets done.... the notebook of lists for contests/challenges, the calendar, all that fun stuff!

This is the 1 space that actually got cleaned up yesterday! I got all my sizzix stuff over here, shipping stuff and some other misc. things. Before yesterday, my sizzix was in a different room b/c this space was stacked with paper!

You might find anything on these shelves! Catch all spot at it's finest! lol

Ribbon dysfunction and more paper!

Looking from the other side. It's not TOO bad!! lol

After looking at all this, you must need a snack! Want some candy?? See those 3 draws under the table? (right of the chair) That is where I keep all my goodies for blog candy and giveaways!! Want some of that?

  4. You know what they say, "A clean desk is a sign of a sick mind". If you can be creative in that "mess" area, then that is all that really matters right?


  5. I have two signs on the door to my craft room: "This area is protected by Flying Monkeys." and "I'm not Messy, I'm Creative." Pick one and hang it! You'll be glad you did!

    Thank you for the opportunity to win some of your STUFF (glad to take it off your hands!) ...and also to inspire me to neaten up, LOL.

    I am a long-time follower, and FB fan!

  7. Looks just like mine... I try so hard to keep things clean, but all it takes is for me to walk into the room and things fly off shelves and out of drawers. LOL My hubby does not understand it. Happy creating.
