My crazy craft desk

Not sure what happened but Lola napped for 3 hours yesterday! After I was done cleaning and cooking I almost got bored!
Thankfully I came to my senses and got to work. (YAY!)
Here are the results:
Imagine part 2
: Jillibean Soup Monsters paper, K and Co Amy Butler  Sola paper,  October afternoon journaling tags,  Sassfras Lass doily sticker, Making Memories Paper Reverie butterflies, Tattered Angels Mist in Patina

I have a second page I will save for later as this post will be more about my lack of scrappy organization. After 2 hours of scrap time my desk looks like this:
I am not ashamed! 
Living in a 400 square foot apartment (Yes, I live my whole life in a walk-in closet's floor space) makes organization a CHALLENGE. I don't have the space for organizer shelves to keep everything in view so when I have a productive day it takes several more days to clean up. The result is I rarely clean the desk. My favorite products are all in pampers boxes under the desk. It's a crazy way to innovate but it will have to do till we Escape from New York.

I do keep my Studio Calico kits together and organize my papers by manufacturer. The countless stamps, alphas and other embellishments are all kept in 12 by 12 boxes on my book shelf. Giving my books away was traumatic.
 I know how it looks. I imagine the shuddering. I have stopped shopping for 2011. It will be hard when Summer CHA products come around. I've already spotted the new Pink Paislee Mistables Collection that will make it into one of my Pampers boxes. I just can't buy the whole collection like before.
Little steps people- little steps.
Look! It's Sassafras Lass' Sunshine Broadcast!
MuChOs SmOoChEs!


  1. What a fun layout! I love all the unique details...the masked butterflies with the outlined journaling, and that amazing photo!

    BTW, your art desk looks better than mine. I have tons of space but I still can't manage to get it organized! As the saying goes, "creative people are seldom tidy."

  2. I am so with you! I have a table set up and I will get it cleaned but end up scrapping on the floor because once I get all the stuff I'm looking through out I have no more room on the table! So pathetic! I absolutely love that layout...especially the journaling in the butterflies!

  3. This layout is amazing! I love how you've journaled inside the negative spaces of the butterflies!

  4. All I see is organized chaos! I wonder if the DIVAS like, the ones who get paid, have to fumble around for scissors? Do they keep their scraps, do they have to clean up their own mess? Ahh, I love paper...but I do not like putting it all away!

  5. You journaled around those butterfly shapes? You clever girl!


Ok peeps lets CHAT! You tell me what you REALLY think and I PROMISE to keep it open minded here.
