Confession Time

If you were to come into my home you would see that it is pretty clean and well organized. That is, every room, except one: the craft room.

I am very lucky in that I have a whole room dedicated to all my crafting materials. However, it is also the room where the kids do their crafts and the room wherea lot of miscellaneous things get dumped. I'm always trying to clean it to no avail.

This year I decided that it would be the year that I would get this room cleaned and organized once and for all. It is a huge job but it needs to be done.

I have more scrapbooking supplies than some stores and it's time to get serious and start purging. I've got enough paper to wallpaper every house on my street; enough rub-ons to cover my whole room; enough stamps and inks to last a lifetime. I think you get the picture.

I know that I'm not the only one in this position. There are many of us out there who have too much stuff and can't see the forest for the trees. It's time to clean house and start fresh. I find that I'm not creating as much as I would like because it takes forever to find anything amongst the disaster. I know for me, I'm much more creative in a relatively clean space.

So, I'm going to do something I would normally not do and that's post pictures of my craft space. I'm not big in people seeing my home as I always feel like I'm being judged (that's a whole other issue) but I feel it's important for me to post these pictures so then it will make me accountable and start doing the cleaning that needs to be done.

Join me in this cleaning/organizing adventure and hopefully it will inspire you to do the same.

Happy organizing!
