Shame's A Great Motivator

.
Hmmm.
.
Fearful that I may have sent prospective customers running for the hills in horror after posting that picture of my workroom, I took a couple of hours out this afternoon to clear it up.
.
It probably looked like a complete pig-sty bigger mess than it actually was, so it really didn't take me long to get it straightened up.
.

Halfway through

.

Honestly, it's true!

.
Believe it or not, I do actually have a place for everything.
.
It's just that I'm not so great at putting things back in their place.
.
It took a couple of these
.
.

(only mine were in a china cup)
.

.And some singing along to them

.

.

To get it looking like this.

.
.

.

.

So you can all come back now ... the scary room has gone ... for now ...

Okay, tell the truth now... What did it look like before you started? Is there a before pic out there somewhere? Or just that halfway pic?

crikey - it was rather messy, wasn't it? Did environmental health come in at all?

Yaaay! I am at this exact moment in the process of "doing" mine. Must be something in the air, even if we are a world away! :)

The necklace I received in the post this morning(from you) can NOT possibly have come from a shit tip like that...... (ha! ha!).

I look at my "messses" and call them "creative" messes. The necklace is lovely. Thank you so much x Cathy x

I need to do a before and after of my little sewing nook - nothing like a whole room like yours (OH THE STORAGE YOU MUST HAVE!!!) but vast improvement on what was there before (stacks and stacks of papers, books and misc items)

It must be a clearing day.... I have just bagged up 7 bin bags of old clothes and stuff i really don't need..

Love you workspace... too! I'd have somewhere like that ...but I would have to send my 11 year old to live with her nanny! ;D
