That looks good, Julie!
I think it's a good idea to immediately put things you've used in some kind of storage. Preferably in see through containers, like yours. Even if it is just temporary, it will make you feel so much more organized.

Like I said before: putting away the tools and materials I have used for a (part of a) project is part of the creative process for me. Not until my work table is empty or organized again I feel a true sense of accomplishment.

BeaG I wish I could be as dedicated to that part as you are. I often stop in the middle of a craft to attend to kids and life and sometimes when I go back the momentum has waned and I don't know how to get back into the swing of things, not to finish up or to tidy up! I have a pretty big mess upstairs right now, it's difficult to rearrange an entire craft room Tongue.

It sure is! Her studio is frankly incredible, I love how she did the floor. Just brilliant.

that floor is amazaing. I am so much envy about her space. I dream of that much space!

I love personal swaps,  I print a lot of random fabric, usually with no purpose in mind.  let me know if you want any of it.

I usually have multiple projects going at the same time, so it is difficult for me to know when I am "finished"...I like to straighten up and clean at least once a week...I put away things that I know I am done with and put scraps of yarn and fabrics in their proper bins...to me, organization means having stuff I use ready at hand and within arm's reach...I am slowly but surely embracing my messiness and getting more projects done. I hope to have a lot of supplies gone by the time I move in two years...I have a goal!

I had a happy weekend.  I did a craft fair and there was 3 hours of setup time so I was able to sort and organize some of my jewelry supplies.  I have stray beads, findings, etc. here and there that I still need to work on, but this was a good start!  Smiley

 There are guests coming to stay in the craft/spare room this weekend so I've been working at tidying & organizing.
Got the beads 'n' stuff sorted Tongue.


That only took 3 days. Sigh.

Yes, I have two small drawer units. The bigger ones you see are 3 drawers tall, the smaller holds 4. Eventually I'll get it clean enough to take pictures of the rooms so I can show them here. Still just too horribly messy now though, it's embarrassing Sad.

Looks neat and organized to me! I think I am just going to label all of my bins "STUFF"...I just don't seem very good at putting things back once I use them....I am also embarrassed at the state of my whole house, but I have an excuse...it is being remodeled top to bottom...so stuff is everywhere...
