Clean Up!!

The time has come -- I've met my 'show' quota and its time to clean up my work area.  Although compared to pictures I've seen (and you know who you are *smile*) my work area is actually recognizable underneath my mess.  But for me - 'Miss Neatnik' - it is cluttered and filled with this and that.  

I love cleaning up after a major project (or series of projects) is completed.  Its like clearing my mind, getting it all set up to conjure up new and exciting work.  Happily I weed through all the left over threads, embellishments, buttons, charms and bits and pieces -- putting everything away that I don't think I'll need anytime soon. 

Ah, the joy of a space in which to clutter all over again!

"Organizing is what you do before you do something, so that when you do it, it's not all mixed up." - A. A. Milne


  1. Yes, there's a feeling of clearing the decks before moving on to the next frenzy - where will you go next?

  2. Gosh, I am on sick leave and I have tried to do the very same thing, and organize some fabrics too. Just not enough time in the day!!

  3. I like the analogy of "clearing your mind" -- feels that way to me too; but I'm sure I'm not as meticulous about it. ;) Fun post!

  4. guilty as charged...my mind is in a terrible disarray, as is every working surface at the moment ;>}

    CONGRATS on meeting quota!

  5. Ah, miss Neatnik, how I wish I was more so!! Congrats on making your quota, and good wishes to you on your show... I am considering doing local (British Columbia) fairs next year, and would love to know what you consider to be "enough". Hugs ;-)
