I am not fortunate enough to have a separate room for all my crafting supplies so they are currently devouring my bedroom.  I also haven't been too keen on keeping things tidy.

My horrible aim results in my laundry completely missing the hamper, my homework gets stacked on my scrapping supplies and my sewing supplies get stacked on my crafting supplies. I have a problem with starting one project and not finishing it before moving on so various projects have taken residence among the laundry and nooks and crannies in my room.  I have attempted some organization.  Crafting/Scrapbooking is supposed to be limited to my second closet, Sewing to the sewing cart and my homework and photography to the computer desk but we all know that doesn't always work out as planned.  So here a few shots of my disastrous room.  I present to you the results of Hurricane Trish.


Shot from the doorway of the laundry devouring my floor.

Overview shot from the bed.  Wow, I'm a slob.

The crafting closet: what a disaster.

My goal for today:  Conquering this monstrosity before I head home to visit my parents. Eep.  I'll post the after pics when/if I finish it today.

oh my god. I NEED to do this! Mid February - after all serious more important events are - I need to do a MASSIVE room cleaning. Not craft room, but bedroom. Oh god its horrible. One small fish tank, two twenty gallon tanks with turtles and snake, a big TV, tons of furnature, suitcases everywhere, mass piles of clothing and blankets, unpacked suitcases from christmas vacation, and proof of my horrible guilty eating binges. *eyes the box of lucky charms next to her... bought only so she can pick the marshmallows out*

Oh man... this will be intense. I would do my craft room, only its seperated into two now... and neither is horrible enough to warrant before/after pictures - or even a serious cleaning!

I found all the things I need for organizing part one of my bedroom/craftroom. I ordered one thing becasue I couldn't find it in any stores around here. (and I thought walmart carried everything.) But the other two items are availible at wally world. I doubt I can convince my hubby to get them today though. But maybe after my ordered item shows up....

hey silverlining86, i have those same bedsheets!

i recently did a total overhaul of my studio, it feels great!!! i got rid of some bulky cabinets that i could never seem to keep stuff in and replaced it with almost a wall high unit from ikea. i'm completely convinced that the only way to keep a room clean is to have shelving that goes ALL THE WAY UP! it's like taking my entire floor (which was covered in crafts and things) and just tacking it right up on the wall out of the way. ha!

the best part of my studio now is that i feel professional working in here. that's a feeling i never really had in my studio before. it always felt like a part of my home, and now it feels like my workplace, so i am more efficient when i'm in here.

without further ado. the before pictures:



the after pictures:


gotta love ikea.

Sorry I've been gone so long. Am trying to get back on the boards. Body's thrown me for a few loops these past months and am still learning to adjust. Thanks for your patience.

boygirlparty do you just love your expidit or what. Mine survived two crosscountry moves and a trip up the coastline and is now enjoying life in Oakland California about 12 miles from where it was purchased, which is odd as it has traveled some 6000 miles to get there!

I swap, so in crafting terms I guess that means I put out... You?

Boygirlparty- Your room looks great! Lucky you to have an ikea!
I had to put my money that I had set aside for organization supplies towards dog food. Some things are just more important.

i just read that as "your mom looks great" instead of "your room looks great" - i've got to put on my glasses before craftstering.

expedit is the BEST! we got it on sale for $179, but i bet we could have gotten it even cheaper on craigslist. if you live near an ikea, your local craigslist will be chock full of ikea rejects from people's big moves - although i have a feeling expedit could handle any kind of move. it's the most sturdy piece of ikea crap i own!

so I said over the summer I would get my parents basement cleaned out because then I would get it as a craft area. I've been working on it slowly but surely for the past few weeks. And then disaster struck again. Our basement once again flooded. I think I'll just have to clean my room totally instead. I want to paint it a brightish orange and pretty much just change the feel from "sleepy 10 year old" to "energetic teenager". So I'll take pics soon enough and get cracking. Its really not that horrible, just a lot of stuff into a tiny room.
