I haven’t scrapbooked (or done anything crafty, really) since March. Just haven’t been inspired or felt like digging everything out. I keep saying I need to clean and organize before I can do anything. I can’t work when there’s a mess because I feel like I should be tackling the mess before having “fun”. However, if I’m not in the room, the mess doesn’t bother me. Go figure. :-p
I did two loads of laundry yesterday AND cleaned off one table in my craft area. CLEARED it! Woo Hoo! Go me!
However, clearing it consisted of separating the piles o’ crap into pre-marked bins (paper, adhesives, memorabilia, tools, etc.) so I still have all the shit to contend with, but I’m breaking them down into more manageable piles (or so I tell myself). I have several hobbies to organize as well as regular household stuff (i.e., found a pair of pliers in my crafting stuff because I was too lazy to walk it the extra 20 feet to the tool bag, so left it on my drafting table *sigh*).
Anyway, my point, I’m finally tackling the mess that I’ve been using as an excuse to not do anything. Don’t know what motivated me to do that, but let’s hope the clean craft area will motivate me to craft, because goodness knows nothing else has been!
