This time though I need to plan it out first. So I thought you might like to come along on my journey with me.
I know I should empty and re-evaluate the room, but seriously, who has time for that? Plus, it would make me far too anxious and I'm impatient, so I'll be doing the room, bit by bit. It isn't the best way, thats a fact, but needs must and I have way too much stuff. I also need to keep costs to a minimum, so I'll be repurposing items found around home or I'll look in charity shops or eBay.
First things first ... I need a plan ... so here's the list I wrote out.
- What Do I create in here and what do I want to create
- What's not working in my room at the moment
- What is working
- What do I want to store
- What can I store elsewhere
- Storage Needs
All this also shows is I have too much stuff!
So I've armed myself with another storage box and decided to clear my desk first. I can put it all in there, and then just start with a clear desk.
This is my desk at present ... not the worst its been, but not the best either. I'm thinking I need a clear desk feel, which will give me the opportunity to actually get things out; either scrapping, quilting or dressmaking, work on them, and then put them away. Well, that's the idea.
There you have it ... my messy craft desk. I'll be back with how I'm getting on, in future posts, I know this isn't going to be done in a day or two, but I determined not to drag it out either, like I say, I have a head full of creative ideas and I need to get on with them.
