How do I do it?


How, oh how, do I function in this mess? I did clean it up before the holiday, but still... I suppose it would go against the grain for me to take a picture of the straightened room, now wouldn't it? I have project on top of project- stacked to the ceiling- literally. And yet I wander around out there like I have nothing to do! Probably have too much to do and am simply overwhelmed. Or maybe underwhelmed. That's why there are so many options of what to do- I get bored rather quickly and starting projects seem to be my favorite thing. And hey! I like finishing, it's just the middle part that sometimes bores me. Time to make a list and start some finishing. Honestly, when projects have been stowed long enough, they regain their interesting qualities. Sometimes.

You crack me up! My sewing room is usually a disaster zone. Maybe it is because we are just so very creative! Yeah - that's it! It's not that we are just naturally messy! Hoping to sew some next week after all this company leaves. I have one of my Christmas quilts finished - but have another one still waiting to be quilted. Love you!

Hey, I noticed those floors also! NICE

I agree - too many projects is sometimes overwhelming, but I also agree, sometimes an ordinary old UFO develops into something new and enticing!

Ooh. Like the new look.
And wish I were there to piddle in your comfy room. XOXOXO

Things are way more fun to start than to finish. Got my new toy set up...I would take a picture of it but I think perhaps I would have to stand on the ladder outside the window to get far enough away for a picture. "I am learning".

I too, love those floors! Gorgeous!! A creative mess, is not the same as a regular ol' everyday mess. lol

There is something new and exciting about pulling out those old UFO's!
