90% of real crafters make real messes....
Well, here it is: where I craft. I guess it might look messy to some people. Like my friend, who peeked in, then said: "Hmm, I could never stand having open shelves like that!"
It doesn't really bother me.
This is the cleanest that my craft table will ever look.
All I really care about is that my paper cutter has no gunk on it, and that my craft mats have no grimy residue from that last craft project.
The Random Shelf holds random stuff: tape, new ribbons, sanding blocks, a new punch that doesn't fit in the punch drawer, and a couple of keychains (!).
My desk is about the same as the craft table, but I'm happy with it. I can sit in my pink chair, and do my stuff. Usually, one of the dogs will be sleeping in their cage.
The shelf does need a bit of reorganizing, but I never seem to get around to it.
On the weekends, it's a little more tidy, because the calendar & homeschool stuff isn't on there. But the coffee mug is usually there.
And there is a Random Shelf above my desk, too. It holds important things like glitter, ribbons, folders from long ago, and a stuffed unicorn.
I also noticed this today...book, craft, jar of dried flowers (?) and pencil basket with stuffed unicorn...all on premium shelf space. I just don't make sense!
And this is the bit that drives my husband bonkers: my printer sitting on top of Scooby's cage (but I put a red blanket under it, so she can't mess with the electronics). He's okay with me setting my craft totes on Pippin's cage, though.
This is as clean as it gets, and if it were any tidier, I'd probably be too nervous to make anything (especially if it involved glitter).
So, no excuses. This is where I do what I do.
Thanks for stopping by!
