Making Stuff & Making a Mess

It's amazing just how quickly my studio space can go from "super neat and tidy with everything put away" to "looking like a crafty bomb went off with piles of stuff everywhere".

This usually happens when I'm brainstorming some new ideas, as I go rummaging through lots of boxes of supplies looking for the perfect material and try to get half a dozen different ideas out of my brain and onto paper / into prototype form all at once. I love making sessions like this: so much creativity and crafty fun!

Tidying up afterwards = less fun, but never mind :)

Luckily I have a dedicated studio space at the moment so I can leave the desk, coffee tables, sofa and floor covered in heaps of crafty stuff, shut the door on it and come back and tidy up later! After years of working from the kitchen table or in the living room in my old flat it is a delicious luxury to be able to really throw myself into making things / working on new designs and not have to worry about tidying up straight away.

Because I don't have a craft room, I think I won't mind if it looks like that when and if I ever have a craft... corner! Don't worry - we have seen yours in a perfect tidy condition :)

Hmmm ... I have the same problem, but no craft room! My bedroom gets stuff all over it and I have to clear the bed each night.
Doesn't stop me from crafting though!!

I'm so glad it's not just me!

Bairozan - haha, thanks! It is indeed tidy sometimes :)

Beth - when I used to work on my old kitchen table, weeks would often go by without us being able to eat on it!! The urge to craft is definitely too strong to be resisted, isn't it? :)

Claire - definitely not just you! x
