Hi There! This blog will no longer have any new post or activities. Please click here to go to my NEW blog, as I've depleted all the memory on this one. I hope to see you there! I will, however, continue to keep this blog up, as there are tons of ideas and tutorials that you may want to search through. When you are done searching here, please head on over to my new blog and visit me there. Aloha, Teri

Before and after

Maria has a challenge over on her blog. She said that it was okay if your area is messy because that means you are creating. How true! Although her area wasn't anything like mine, I decided to take some pics to post. Jen and I were talking about it and she said, "you know how my area looks like right? I'm gonna post it for Maria's challenge" - you go girl! Well, although I won't be doing Maria's challenge, (just because I couldn't commit to posting to her challenge daily) I thought I'd give you guys a scare (or laugh) and post a picture of what my table looked like before I cleaned it. I don't even have space for anything comforting on my table!! No wonder I get frustrated doing projects! I have such a small space to actually work in because there's too much stuff in the way!
Here's what it looks like today, a little more organized but I still have to clear it off as this is where our tree goes! We bought a small tree today and I can't wait to decorate it! This year, I've decided to change the decorations and color! We are having a red theme (a first for us with this color!) and I can't wait to decorate and show you all.
Do you ever have problems finding a home for those straggler items that just don't have a permanent home yet?? I'm struggling with that now. Wish me luck!

So true - a messy area means you are creating ... it's better than collecting items and not doing anything with it ... you are not alone, believe me.

Maybe get a desk organizer or something so things are off the desk so you'll have more work room?

Oh my gosh Teri. . .what a big difference your desk looks when its cleaned up! It doesn't even look like the same area. You should come over to my place and clean my room up! LOL! You sure do a fabulous job of cleaning up!!

I have the same problem. I have 4 tables in my craft room but so little stamping space. It's hilarious!
