Craft Room Before and After

There is one thing that will never change about me. I am messy. I don't really know why I ended up being such mess. When I was little it did seem my Mom was always forcing us to clean our room, and that it was a perpetual mess. I think it may have had something to do with sharing a room with my sister. Not that she was anymore of a slob then I was, but I think that there is something in us that says, "Oh she left her shirt there, I'll just throw my pants there" and vice versa, until you have a complete mess brewing. You would think that getting out on my own would force me to clean my act up, but no. My roommate Lana was cut from the same cloth as I was. In our apartment in Hollywood we had a pile, and I mean a monstrous PILE  of clothing under our stairwell.  I swear it was 4 feet high. We would wash clothes, ones that we rescued form the pile, but the pile was never gone. And for two girls that were living the life in Hollywood during the 90's era of hair bands, The Cathouse, 1970's the Club, and The Scarlett Letter, we had to have appropriate clothing for all of these venues. And now here I am 41 years old and my pile of "go out" clothes has turned into a pile of glue, glitter, trim and lace. Oh and there still is a pile of laundry in my room. My husband is my roommate now, and although he swears if I weren't around he would be totally organized, he is one storage trailer away from getting on an episode of Hoarders. So in my defense, I will say that although I make amazing messes, I do like to stop and clean them up, once in a while. And here is evidence of that in my blue room:
{random stuff all over the place, iron out, empty ink cartridges}
{now all of my holiday inspirations are out to inspire}

{notice the food plate, laundry over the chair, make up scattered about}

{ahhhh, my mac all uncluttered and one of my handmade scrabble books for taking notes}

{my home inside my home}
I am going to email Lana and see if she has only old photos of our Hollywood apartment. That would be so fun to see!


  1. Hey sweets,
    this room is magical.
    i can see why you are so inspired.
    see ya soon

  2. I enjoyed taking a peek at your craft room. I don't think it was that bad before though. I love the tray with your little pine trees!It's hard to keep my craft room tidy when I'm working on stuff. I find especially the floor gets dirty.

  3. Good for you! its soooo hard to stay organized. My table space to work at goes from 8 feet to about 6" in no time at all.
