Wonder how this scary mess could turn into something productive?

We had snow again, during the night.  Today is a good day to stay in and work on a few projects, including cleaning up this mess.

See you later,

  1. Oh how I LOVE ribbon. 🙂 And buttons. And, well, anything crafty! I suspect most crafter’s tables look similar to yours. I know mine does!!


    1. Staci – I guess it just comes with the creative territory! I just can’t envision you being messy though. Yesterday while waiting at my Dr.’s office, I took along my copy of Artful blogging and so loved seeing your photos and reading your words about your journey. Looking forward to your next chapter. xo Kim

    Hmmph. Must be nice to feel like you can afford Artful Blogging or ANY of those over-priced Somerset magazines. Nevertheless, my rubber room is in complete disarray but its on my radar for a clean out. Did you make any kind of dent in your reorganization when you weren’t looking at the birds?


    1. I made no progress whatsoever. There I said it. Over priced magazines indeed.

        Don’t beat yourself up. The dreary, cold days make us want to hibernate like bears. I have suffered from lack of motivation for two weeks. Just because we get up and go out in the world does not mean we can turn the hibernation off. Am working for two days and it’s a good thing it’s a one-girl office because my eyelids are half closed. I’m putting you on notice that I’m sleeping in tomorrow so don’t expect me to make any progress on that rubber room.


      2. Long week, I’m too tired to think of cleaning or making progress. I think everybody has had a hard week.

        Got my kitchen cleaned up (I refuse to use the dishwasher) and cooked meat loaf for Poppie. Then back into hibernation. Warm enough for shorts again but no sun. Just dreary.

    That craft table looks all too familiar to me…my whole dining table looks that way when I’m in the creating mode. Unfortunately I just haven’t been there for a long time. I did make some gifts at Christmas time, but my heart just wasn’t in it all the way. It’s nice to have a clean table, but I’d rather be creating. It’ll come again, I know. You’re in my thoughts and prayers, my friend. Peace to your heart


    1. I know when we get stuck and just don’t feel the creative thing, it makes it worse if we try to force it. You will be back to making your lovely things again….

    Everyone seems to be in a tidying up mood! I’m glad to see I’m not the only one who gets in a creative mess 😉


    1. I know it is a mess, but I just seem to function better that way – it sparks the creativity. When I clean, which isn’t often, then I can’t find anything – leave it messy and 9 times out of 10 I know where it is. 🙂

    It’s a lovely mess-those ribbons are so inspiring!


    1. Thank you Debra – I do find inspiration in the messiest of places. Just the way my brain works. 🙂
