Studio makeover

This is going to take me FOREVER.
Here's what I went down to this morning:
I am so lucky to have such a big space to work in. I have separate spots for sewing and paper crafts. There is a kitchen sink (double sinks) and a counter with an exhaust fan. I have a huge cutting table. But it's all under an avalanche of stuff. I have my recycling box and a garbage bag in hand. I've rolled up my sleeves..... and I'm sitting down to a cup of tea......

Okay, first up -- setting up my stereo. It's been packed in a box since I moved in 3 years ago. It only took me about 1/2 hour to unpack it and set it up. I'm playing a tape (yes, I have a great tape deck -- I can still make mixed tapes, lol). The tape playing now? Twin Peaks Soundtrack :) ANd when I unpacked the 3 cartons, what did I find? All of my missing bath towels! And a vintage down filled duvet. Hmph, that's where they went.

Now I'm going down to tackle the desk area. Wish me luck!

Three years already! I need to do some um, drastic tidying to my space that's beginning to rival yours! And what happened to the weather????

You can do! And, by the way, I have a couple of boxes in the basement still unpacked from when I moved her over 10 years ago.

I can't wait to see the "after" pictures. It always feels so great when it is done. I think reorganizing is inspirational.

Haha, that is one awesome room with a lot of STUFF and not much space left to move. Wishing you luck and have fun discovering your space again!
