WOYWW 120

It's Tuesday night, and I'm writing this now, as I may not have time tomorrow... or I may be buried under the bomb-site that is my dining room... It's not so much "What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday?" this week... more of "What's NOT On My Workdesk???" *lol*
Please bear in mind that I am now going to blog a photograph for WOYWW that only shows the tidier part of the desk/room today. It may even get worse before it gets any better...
So far I've bagged three binbags of craftiness for charity, one for local schools, two for the rubbish bin, two for LouLou, and a few bits'n'bobs for giveaway at craft club on the last Tuesday of the month.
And I'm not even a fraction of the way done yet.
My son moved out tonight, to live with his lovely girlfriend Steph... so the dining room will now become a dining room again... eventually! I now have a North-facing itty-bitty little craft room all to myself. Or, I will have when it's all tidied, painted, shelved, cleaned, and made ready for the mess that wll descend as soon as I can get crafting in there.
My papers are sorted, my bits'n'bobs have containers/jars/boxes/wicker baskets or something similar to live in, my Christmas crafty things have a dedicated unit, and I'm all just about ready to finish sorting and take residence in the craft room. It's not just any craft room.... it's MY craft room. *lol*
I know... you're looking at that photograph again and thinking to yourself  "She's joking... that can't be the tidier part of the room!".  Sadly, it is... I cannot yet get to one corner where I have spare chairs and a new unit to go in the craft room (that's already filled to bursting!)...
The view as you step in from the kitchen door is enough to make a grown man weep (well, it did my hubby *lol*)
Hubby doesn't believe me when I say that you have to make a worse mess before it starts to look tidier... hehehe.
I was supposed to be installed in the new craft room by today - but looks as though it will be at least another week - and more for the new shelving to be built. It'll be worth the wait though :)

Pop over to Julia's at the Stamping Ground, and add your workspace to WOYWW #120!
Have a wonderful Wednesday everyone!

Poor huby ... but then men just don't understand organised mess!! Its not messy ... just busy!!!! Lots of people seem to be de-cluttering at the moment, and it'll be great when you are in your own little space.
Happy WOYWW

Wow, that would probably make me cry, too! But you are right. I always tell my friends, it looks its worst when you are getting it in order. And of course, you get a new room out of the deal, too! Way to go!

I also had problems to get my hubby understand, that it becomes worse before completion - and it takes some weeks, not some hours!
Have a nice time organizing your new room!

It'll be worth it when your new room is set up! If you're throwing anything else away throw it my way!! Husbands just don't understand the inner workings of the craft world bless 'em, my husband thought we'd had burglars and they'd ransacked my craft room I almost didn't like to disillusion him! xx

Doone said...

Wow - that's impressive!! But, all in a good cause. Do you think autumn sets people's minds to declutter, cos loads are doing it this week. I think it's good for the soul actually, I love sorting stuff out!! Your new craft room will be worth the wait :) xx

famfa said...

It will all be worth it in the end. A lovely new room. Can't wait to see. I am jealous, I don't even have a room at the moment to make a mess in.

Neil said...

Thanks for sharing your space this week, I always enjoy visiting and hope you have a fabulous rest of the week.

Sandra said...

I was about to say let's stop calling it a dining room and call it what it really is, your craft room! But I guess it's going to be a dining room after all! Love the new Bo Bunny papers and the stamps in the earlier post, I got a little 6x6 Bo Bunny Christmas pack at the weekend, such beautiful papers. Thanks for the tip about the craft shop in Soham, hopefully I'll get to visit it as I will most likely be coming back to Cambridge in the very near future for a few days.

My craft area just gets worse and worse ...the intention was that everything had a place ...who was I kidding ...I am rubbish about putting things back so everything piles up or is dumped on the floor for me to trip over.

Enjoy your room once you get into it.

You will get there... just keep tidying and nagging for the shelves!! It will be worth the wait - I used my dining table for a while a few years back and I hated the obvious mess you are faced with all the time.

Elizabeth said...

You're going to just love your new craft room so it's worth the turmoil you're creating now - and it is so true that when decluttering you inevitably cause more clutter in the process but eventually all becomes organised :)

I’ve a giveaway over on my blog, you might like to take a look at:- http://silverscrappers.blogspot.com/2011/09/my-memories-suite-digital-software.html
