Does creative really mean messy? I think so. I am sure there are some crafters out there that keep their space very magazine ready at all times, but I am NOT one of those. Since I took over the dining room, with a promise to my hubby that I would keep it nice and tidy, it has never been clean. I can understand a messy desk, but supplies everywhere?? It's not working for me when it takes me ten minutes or longer to find paper for my layout. Or those stamps with the cool circles. Add in all the supplies for painting, beading, crocheting, and the sewing supplies, and I have one crazy workspace! So I am going through a 12 step program! I will post my steps soon and hope that you will join me if you need an intervention too!!
