Almost Embarrased >>>>>

That's right...
I'm ALMOST embarrased to show you my little studio,
I'm pretty sure I'm in
Good Company
these days...
everything is everywhere ~
I can't find a thing!

what is supposed to be a neat little cotner near my desk,
has become a pile of stuff that is swallowing the room....

it's a cluttered and dark mess and I can't stand it.

So, what will I be doing today & this eve?
you guessed it.

I have to rearrange this space to make it more suitable for me.
I'll show pics of my progress as it unfolds...

I will be clearing out the stuff that I just don't use that much
and placing it high on those shelves ...
I have purchased some vintage metal spinner racks and those will hold my flosses.

I'll keep the room light & farmhouse-y..may even paint my worktable and floors!
How's your workspace looking these days?

I'm starting on my Christmas/Winter needlework designs
and really need to get this room in gear...
there's nothing worse than working in a place that you just don't like!!!

Blessings from the Farm,

Hey...this looks good to me ! I am ashamed to say that I've let my workspace go so bad....I've just had to move on - it would take a WEEK to get it back in shape.... Which is exactly what I plan to do very soon. I think it will inspire me . Good luck with yours.... You have a lovely place to create !

Oh NO contest here,I win for sure!!!
My only solution to the mess is to move!!!!!

looks like a very familiar place to me...it's create and make a mess or have a lovely clean home because I have no inspiration...from your recent work it was well worth mess...wonder what treasures you will find as you clean and organize...

Hi Lori,

I'm pretty new to blogging and just found your blog the other day -- I think I got here from Kris Miller Studio. Anyway, your studio looks a lot like mine does right now. Cleaning it is "on the list." LOL

I love your artwork. I find myself more and more attracted to prims and early american crafts. I'd love for you to stop by my blog sometime if you get the chance.

Lori, Not embarressing at all...looks like a creative mind hard at work!!! OLM

Wait, that's not my studio! I thought for a minute it was. But no, mine only has a path in and out of it right now as I ready for Open House Days! Not to worry it will all come back together Lori! Pam from Dream Come True Farm
