The love supreme

15.4.11

One thing I love.....

Is getting into a huge mess....
and then cleaning it all up again....Ahhh....what a great feeling.

I really LOVE neatness and order...
which makes me question....why am I so damn messy when I'm creating?
Even when I'm scrapbooking I end up sitting in the midst of a pile of paper...offcuts.....
and double sided tape backings.
I'm no different when I stitch....I have fabric...threads...pins...everywhere...
I spend the greatest part of my time searching for things I had only one second ago.

So for those who remember my nice tidy room....
I thought Id share a sneak peek of just what damage I can create.

I'm sure I'm not alone with this.....I bet there are many other serial 'messers' out there...
please reassure me I'm normal.

  2. Normal...yes, definitely normal. I love a clean craft area, and feel so inspired when it's all tidy and beautiful. So inspired, that I mess it up again almost immediately! Ho hum...it's fun, though :)

  3. Completely normal, I have to have a clean area to start but boy can I make a mess! Kristina Werner had a post about this last week and many of her readers posted pics of their desk, you are very normal. http://www.kwerner.design.com/blog/

  11. You are so not alone Marnie.
    At least you have a room. My craft is spread over the whole house and I spend more time looking for stuff than actually sewing and creating. But it's fun. xx Sue
