Organized Mess ~ Drum Roll - My Crafting Room!

Howdy all my crafting friends!

OK - I decided today I would be transparent ~  I am stepping out of my comfort zone here people - and I thought you might need a good laugh today as well.

I know you are not going to be believe this,  but I cannot tell you how many times I have heard people say to me (especially in my "working outside the home" days) - "You are so ORGANIZED!"  HA! 

I do like to be organized ~ I do like a clean house ~ I do enjoy a clean crafting space... but to be honest, sometimes this crafting room does not get back into shape for days. 

So... today I have decided to let you see what life is really like in my crafting room most of the time.

Live, LAUGH, Live and enjoy my pictures!  

When (no holding your breath out there!) ~ I get this area cleaned & organized (again for the hundredth time) - I may add some additional pictures to this posting - just so you can SEE I do clean this area up now and then!

I do want to say I am blessed to have this space in our home just for crafting. Thank you so much Ricky for allowing me this space and time to create.

My crafting room is a small place ~ not more than one or two people can craft in this room ~ I am not complaining - just explaining - and I am so blessed to come here to relax, meet new friend - learn new techniques - listen to Christian Radio and create.


Thanks for dropping by today. 
Enjoy your crafting day! ~ Gail ~

  2. Wow this is so wonderful. I love it!! I really enjoy that you shared what it looks like when its not all organized. I know I'm OCD about my room but it's in the middle of my house where I can't shut a door, so I have to keep it tidy. It does get messy mind you. I have to say that you surprised me in a good way that you shared and I have to say to you that I REALLY enjoyed it!! Thank you so much for sharing!!You have lots of goodies in your room!!

    Thank you so much for joining us at Craftin Desert Divas “Show me your craft space “ Linky Party.

  4. Looks to me like a well used room and if you can find your stuff then it's not messy it's all placed at your fingertips no matter where your fingertips are! That's the excuse I give anyway. Happy Crafting.
