What a mess!!!!!!! (Warning not for the faint hearted lol! and pic heavy ;)

Well after al the Christmas cards and Christmas fayre items that were made in the craftroom before Christmas it looks like a bomb went off and I couldn't ignore it any longer so thought i'd share some before and after pics with you.....

WARNING IF YOU ARE OF A NERVOUS DISPOSITION YOU MAY WANT TO GO STRAIGHT TO THE END OF THIS POST :)





Total mess!! I nearly shut the door and walked straight out
not sure if you can see but its not decorated and still has the sketches of Jacks room on the walls he was staying in here until we decided to make it my craft room....so for now I have stuck all the handmade cards I receive from friends and fellow crafters to the main desk wall hopefully if you sent me one this is where it will be living there are one or two to go up from Christmas but they are downstairs




Its like a personal gallery :)

And after much cleaning a full black bag of stuff and lots of recovered stash i didnt know I had here are this Saturdays results....





if you have a crafty space on your blog id love to visit please leave me a comment with a link to your crafty space so I can come and see :)

Time well spent if you uncovered things you probabaly thought you had. i always say it's cheaper than shopping for more and it's like it was new.

Its energizing when your work space is finally clean and organized. I wish I was better at keeping mine space clean and organized. My rule is putting two things away/cleaning two things before work and after work. That way, at least I feel like I've done something, even if the place is still a mess.

LOL you are funny Emma, I'd be quite happy to have your craft room, messy or tidy - very jealous of all your space & goodies! Since my clearout a couple of years ago I now just have a desk in the family room & 1 small set of drawers - boo hoo xxx
