Tidying my studio
This morning I was reading my friend Liz Plummer's blog Dreaming Spirals who was re-organising her studio. I took a look around my own and felt a wave of shame, how could I do any work in such a mess. I was in two minds whether to show you the before and after photos or not.
The two photos above show what my studio looked like at 9 o'clock this morning. It was so untidy I had to use my ironing board to do all my work when I had two long worktops full of clutter.
Below are photos of my studio at 10 o'clock this morning. How did I manage this? A little over a year ago, my young granddaughter who was 14 at the time persuaded me to let her organise my room for me. I let her do it, worrying that I would not be able to find a thing by the time she had finished. This was not so. She created corners and areas for every type of work. Now everything has a it's own place and it does not take long to put things away even as messy as it was first thing this morning.
