And so it begins . . .

. . .the daunting task of cleaning and reorganizing my craft room.

The above picture is my work table. On that 6' table, I had about one square foot of room to actually work.

Here's a different angle of my work table and that horrifying mess across from it is the . . .well, the "catch-all" table. (And boy oh boy did it catch everything.)

Another view of the "catch-all" table.

Just to give you an idea of how totally out of control this mess got . . . this is the floor next to my work table.

Same floor . . . further away.

The "catch-all" table again.

Frightening isn't it?

Since I'm on vacation this week, and Mercury is still in Retrograde, I thought it would probably be a good idea to take advantage of this time off as well as the "clean and de-clutter" energy.

It has taken three full days to go from total disaster to this:

Look! The "catch-all" table is gone!

It has been replaced by new cubbies and cabinets!

Look! I have the full 6' of table to work on!

Ink pads and paper trimmers hanging on the wall . . .so much closer and easier to reach!

Punches also hanging on the wall and much easier to get to.

Yep . . .three full days . . .and worth every minute. The best part? I still have a full week of vacation left to actually sit in there and craft! Yahoo!
