Ouch! This is embarassing


I have been foolish enough to join a new club called the six-inch-square club. It is all about how messy some of us crafters can be in our work space (there must be some more who are willing to step forward even if they are not as bad as me) . The question is how do such great works of art come from such a messy space ( and I am so unbiased, LOL).

A view of my work table:- tools, glues, pens and pencils. the boxes at the rear left contain colouring pens, markers and paints (some) on the right the boxes contain six months worth of swaps which I haven't yet filed away (my excuse is I am still looking at them) and the orange biscuit box contains bits and bobs like ribbons and ephemera which I use regularly (more than once in the last six months). Currently working on a few cards which can be seen in the foreground.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hostingfind out more at Agnes the reds blog, where she will explain all.
If you visit my Flickr photostream you can see this photo with pop-up notes explaining what all the clutter actually is. And there is also a photo showing more of the surrounding environment and believe me it doesn't get any better.
Just one thing, I do not paint up there, I have more sense than that.
