Are you starting the year by organizing?

Does your art studio look something like this?
(note to self...cover those hideous wheat decals on that chest!)
Or this? 

I'm not even brave enough to show you more of my mess...and it has to get cleared out & organized...again.  Some of the stuff will go into my Etsy shop as destash...and some will be donated. 

This room doesn't even hold all I have...there's stuff in here by the computer & lots of fabrics & such in the basement.  I used to sew a lot.  My Mom sewed a lot...and so much of her stuff is still here, 3 years after she's gone.  I don't do much sewing anymore...and I'll be packing up a big box or 2 of supplies to send off to Rebecca Sower for her "Clean-Out for Quilts" fabric drive.  Rebecca and a group of women are creating quilts that will be sent to women & children in Haiti.  It's an on-going project, so if you have a fabric stash, perhaps you could help, too.  She has a list of supplies they need & a link so you can email her with any questions & to get the mailing address. 

Thanks for taking the time to read this...it's a way to do some good while cleaning out & organizing your own supplies.  I'm always happy when I can help by donating things others need that I have far too much of...I don't have money, but I do have STUFF to share. 

Now to tackle that studio...it's a challenge with a kitty "helper"...but I wouldn't have it any other way!

  1. Happy New Year Debbie! This looks organized based on my standards. My little craft nook looks like a disaster zone. I have done the opposite of you lately. Instead of paper crafting I have been sewing again.

    Have a healthy and happy New Year!
