Hence this challenge / blog hop where we are supposed to clean our studio.
Now... this is something I've loathed for a while now and I've brought tools and projects downstairs as needed (on a project-by-project basis), piling everything up in the attic like this:
Last evening, after finishing everything else that had absolutely had to be done, around 10:00 pm I decided to tackle at least some areas, went up, took the picture above and proceeded to put things in their places.
It's far from perfect, but an hour and a half later I obtained this:
At least now I have some place to put my foot :) The next steps (I wish Sharyl will keep this going for a month or so) are:
- try to get all the supplies organized - this is going to be something to tackle...
- get that desk out and put in my proper table: hubby got it for my birthday last year, maybe this year we'll manage to install it (it's the lovely Harbor Freight Tools solid wood table!)
- put some shelves on the walls, for more space to mess up :)
I am really happy I cleaned the face of the studio a little bit, now I have to kick myself to continue (and to finish all the unfinished projects I just found in the process!)
To see how everybody else cleaned their own studios, please visit our lovely host for a complete list of participants:

Update ~ March 1st, 10:00 pm: I actually managed to get step 1 above *done*! It is a miracle, because in the process I cleaned up a quarter of the attic too (where packaging supplies were scattered all over) and I now have all my packaging supplies all in one lovely place.
The downside? I don't have as many beads as I thought I have :) Or I managed to use part of my stash in the past few months. I also found a mini-project my mom sent me so I'll have to get to that in the near future.
