There are only a couple of hours left of 2011, so I thought I would share a few more of the christmas cards I created this year, I didn't photograph them all, in fact I didn't make as many as I wanted, alas, I promise to try harder next year.
One of my current bug bears is my messy craft area, I have stolen the back end of our lounge and have a very functional set of drawers, but as for organisation, I am hopeless.
I always start each crafting session with good intentions but the photos here show the state it usually ends up in
Even the window sills behind me and the floor end up piled high with discarded stash or half complete projects
And the weird thing is I HATE working in a mess and Neil will attest to the fact I am super tidy everywhere else ( in fact I drive everyone in the family potty by putting everything away as soon as it is finished with and I LOVE clean surfaces)
So what is it about craft spaces ? I know that I am not alone, I have shared many a messy desk story with lots of fellow crafters
Anyway, the photos above were taken yesterday afternoon, ( the awful part is, they were taken an hour after tidying began !)
I sorted ribbons yesterday before my gym session, went shopping and did the cleaning up around the rest of the house and really intended finishing it all up before bed.
No hope! I ended up being sidetracked by Johnny Depp with Amy and making banana splits and fruit smoothies for the kids ( anything really just to delay the pain of sorting out all that STUFF)
I have made a concerted effort today, Amy helped with the papers and some more ribbons, hopefully tomorrow I should have some 'afters' to share
On that note, I will bid you all goodnight and wish you all
A HAPPY NEW YEAR
Thankyou for your kind words and comments all through the year
