Workroom Cleanup Continues

14 Aug

When I last posted about cleaning up my workroom, my work station was so overloaded that I’d begun overloading my computer desk.  Now my computer desk has been transformed into computer AND shipping central!

Computer Desk

Alas, my workstation remains more untidy than ever!

Work Station

This will be time consuming because it will require a lot of decision making about where to put all this crap!  Well, I’m comforted by the knowledge that my workroom is about 75% tidied, which is far from where I first started.  Progress is happening, people!

Ran Amok

24 Jul

I didn’t do any cleaning yesterday, so I did double duty today.  Almost everything is off the floor, and the floor has even been vacuumed.  I’ll have to take the steam cleaner to a few areas where there’s dried polymer clay, etc., but for now I’m exhilarated with my progress.

Next I have to tackle my computer workspace, which is actually messier than before since I am working on some jewelry pieces.

And my workspace, where all the stuff on the right of my computer workstation belongs, will get an overhaul.  I’m exhausted just thinking about it.

No more running amok; for the rest of the day I will be walking calmly!

Betterer and Betterer

22 Jul

Made more progress on the clean up of my workroom.  Haven’t yet touched my computer workstation or my work table, still trying to clear the floor!

Now, of course, I’ve just rearranged and shuffled stuff from one room to another, but all this is going to charity so it won’t be here for long!

I See Floor!

And I can actually close the door to my workroom!

I have now exceeded my personal tolerance for manual labor; time for wine!

Progress!

21 Jul

It’s not much, but I started the hard task of cleaning up my workroom!

I can see the top of my work table now, and a lot of books have been displaced by items that were on the floor.  The books will go to charity.

There’s a long way to go, but at least I have begun!

For Shame

19 Jul

I have tried, quite unsuccessfully, to put my workroom back together.  I did get a start back in March, but I’ve lost ground since then and  now it’s even worse.  Since I can’t get to my workstation, I started using one of the fold-out arms of my computer station.  I can’t find anything and just looking at it depresses me.  I’m hoping by publishing my shame I’ll do something about it while I can still get in it!

The rest of the house looks great, but this one room is now worth of reality TV.  Dang.

Spring Cleaning Runs Amok!

22 Apr

Back in March, I posted the following on my FB fan page (or whatever they’re calling non-personal FB accounts now-a-days):

I returned from Utah, unpacked, and finished 6 months worth of housework, during which time my creativity decided to take a holiday and has yet to return. I know the conclusion of an intensive, long-term project (like taking care of my grandmother) can deflate the euphoria of success, but it’s been nearly 3 months. What do you do to get out of this kind of funk?

I figured I needed about a year to straighten myself out.  Here’s what I’ve accomplished so far:

A cubyhole for my gift boxes now exists. Not really exciting to anyone but me, but it is hopefully a breakthrough from the fug in which I’ve been drifting).

Progress never ends!

(BWT, that’s a custom order (one of 8 different projects!) for a “tree of love” being roughed out on my external disc drive; can you find the 3 structural hearts?  The large open spaces will have dangling crystal hearts in birthstone colors!  Seems like my bread-and-butter for the past 9 months have been custom orders; blessings to everyone who gave me such exciting projects.)  🙂 Progress
