Clean~up, Fix~up Your Workspace

 I've never felt like my desk was the problem, as long as I can keep an area big enough for a tray to work on, I'm good.
                           But I have to admit, this is an improvement, just look @ all that room!
 The floor to the left of my bead table.Things got piled, stacked & balanced until it was the massive mess you see here.
                                                                  And now, the floor!
  The space in front of the closet. This is bags of gift bags, ribbons,packing materials & assorted Christmas.
 More carpet! The day bed is now accessible AND you can actually get to the other side of the room.
                                   Said other side of the room. These are the boxes I collage
                                                                               After
Another shot of the area in front of the closet. The Top Hat box & the other black box are full of bowls that I used to use  for beads. Since I moved the type trays in last October I have been phasing out bowls.The wooden case behind them holds my empty trays. The room isn't 100%, maybe 75%, but I feel really great about what I have gotten done so far. I made a pair of earrings for the Fusion Craft Month Challenge, (more on that tomorrow!) & have put a few ideas together for some future projects. Thanks for reading!

  1. This is great-- you've really come a long way! Gone is the slumped over Santa and other Christmas goodies :-) (I was tripping over b-day gifts from 2012 in my spot!) The area looks tidy now! I could still use some work on some of my floor space but it looks like you managed to "tame that beast" in YOUR area! Thanks so much for participating in the challenge and sharing your photos! Best wishes! --Sharyl

  2. You really got a lot done! So much nicer to have more work space, and be able to walk across the room! Thanks for sharing.

  5. You have a closet lucky you! I actually hold the tray on my lap so don't NEED to have a clear space .. it just needs to be flat enough to balance said tray when I quit! Everything does look much better... but do you remember where you stashed things?

  6. Jayne you did a marvelous job of organizing your beautiful space. I am really liking seeing everyone's work spaces. I have gotten a few ideas for how to improve mine from this challenge. I am envious of your type trays they are way cool.

  7. omg - I love your philosophy Jayne - "as long as I can keep an area big enough for a tray to work on, I'm good." Now if only I could get my husband to understand that. Thank you for sharing your space! I'm attempting the Fusion Challenge, but am a day or two behind.

    1. since I have a shelf for trays I can switch out a tray per project as inspiration hits.
