Today I have decided that something has to give, I can't keep going on like this. Baby steps it will have to be though. I'm going to start with a clear up. The desk that my computer is on is in the spare bedroom. It used to be my work desk when I did a lot of papercrafting and I had hoped to use it as my sewing desk too but it has turned into a dumping ground and is covered in bits and pieces of everything, no room for a sewing machine if I tried. Instead my sewing stuff has taken over the rest of the house leaving no room untouched (even the bathroom has a pile of magazines for reading while relaxing in the bath). Mark has been really good but I think even he is starting to lose his patience now.
Here is my desk in it's full glory .........but not only that under the desk is crammed full ........
.......and by the side of the desk
.... and under Mark's weight bench
Now don't get me wrong this isn't a large room by any means but there is also 3 totes full of cat fabric, 3 totes full of card and paper stock, shelves crammed with embroidery floss, glitter, beads and brads. Not to mention 2 book shelves, Mark's computer and a whole pile of bedding and clothes belonging to my sister that she should be collecting this weekend. All of this adds up to one giant mess and this is only one room!
It will be a mommoth task but I guess I have to start someone and pledging at least one hour of each day to the clean up won't be that bad I'm sure!
