Creative Chaos?

Or just chaos? I used to have an entire room to myself - painted this wonderful green color. Some old vintage map drawers that I stored all my stamps in. Lots of shelves to hold everything else. Then I got pregnant - and we decided that the baby should have a room and after much debate and about 2 weeks before I delivered, it was my room that would be the nursery. We got rid of the guest bed and I moved into that room - which had been my husbands with all his movies, army re-enactment and Star Wars stuff. I got half of the room. It was very hard to cram a room full into half a room. I barely managed. And it was just kinda thrown in there. Fast forward almost a year and I was ready to get back in the game so to speak. So I've been working on trying to get my little space organized and de-cluttered so that I can work. I am not a very organized person by nature but I need organization in order to get anything done. It's still not finished and I wouldn't even be sharing it, but there is a blog candy at stake HERE. I wasn't going to enter when I first saw it but I've seen lots of really cute Tilda cards out there and I've decided that the chance of winning a free stamp is worth the embarrassment. As bad as it looks, it was worse. Up until a few weeks ago, I couldn't even really get in there and was forced to gather stuff up and work in the kitchen or up at the LSS. I am working at getting rid of the really deep drawer units and have something to replace them with that I'm really excited about. Hopefully I'll be able to get that done within the next month or so. When it's all "pretty" I'll share again!

And then a view from the window:

Happy organizing! I like organizing just as much as I like to stamp. But with a little baby, I like sleep much better. I wish you lots of sleep and lots of organzing and stamping time!

This looks like mine, only add all of my quilting stuff into the equation. Oh my, I'm hoping to someday dig out and have an organized "craft" room.
