Tidying and sorting


I usually live surrounded by a bit of creative clutter. I’d love for everything to be super neat and tidy and organised, but that’s just not the way I am. My friend posted this picture the other day (the only link it had was this, but I can’t find the actual picture on the website – I’m sure it must be there somewhere though!)…

Isn’t it lovely? A workspace like this would be just amazing! Of course, it’d need to be at least double the size and I’d need someone to tidy up after me. It would only take me a couple of hours to get to the point where the doors would no longer close!

Yesterday I realised that my ‘creative clutter’ had got way out of hand to the point where it was just a mess.


I had loads of unfinished projects stacked up next to me, piles of notebooks, patterns, paper, receipts – you name it, it was probably there somewhere. After a couple of hours of sorting and tidying it now looks like this…


I love the uncluttered feeling and the space with only the things around me that I’m actually using… but there’s already a whole lot more around me than you can see in the picture. *Sigh* I guess I’ll┬ájust have to come to terms with the fact that I’ll never be one of those really tidy people and that there will always be ‘stuff’ around me. Does anyone else have this problem or is it just me?
