Before and After....

Yes, this was how it really looked.

You can see it didn't leave much room for creating.

After a lot of purging..

and hard work...

Finally finished, and I love how I can see my scor pal once again.. Needed that Diet Coke. :O)

I was able to find  these cute little bins at the  Rite-aid to keep my Dew Drop inks and daubers in.  I just love how I can see them now.  The best part is that they only cost me $3.00....

Good Morning to you all. 
      I just wanted to share a couple pictures of how my desk looked Tuesday morning and then how it looked Tuesday evening after I just could NOT stand it any longer... I even made my card for my Friday post and then put everything back in it's place before I headed to bed.  lol...I am trying to be a good girl and not leave my desk so bad that I just can't stand to be creative. 
     After I was done cleaning up I just sat here looking at just how nice it all looked.  I had bought a new label maker last week and I finally decided it was time to put it to good use.  Wow, I really really love how much it has helped me to get things out and not spend so much time looking for my products. lol...
     Well I just wanted to share a little.  I hope you all have a great Weekend.  I am off to the store first thing in the morning to get me a copy of Breaking Dawn Part 1.  My 12 year old niece was sweet enough to let me know exactly which part the moving ends off at.  Now, I really really want to see it.  I have read all the books at least three times, and I am ready to see the movie.  We never didn't  get the chance to go and see it at the theater, so I am super super excited for this afternoon.  
Hugs, Lisa G

I love before and afters. It's amazing how much our "mojo" can clutter up our minds and our desks. Good to see that you've made space for future messes... lol.

Denice said...

I love your AFTER pic, neat and tidy! I think my space is a combination of all your pictures...a real mess by the time I finish a project but cleaned up before I start the next!

I LOVE your Copic holders! But will stick with what I have for now, funny thing is my horoscope warned me about buying anything new...something about staying away from malls, LOL!

Have a great day.

Oh man, now I feel bad about my room! I guess I know what I'm doing today! Love the Copic cubbies, wish I could find those somewhere!!!

Now get back in there and mess it back up, I mean, get crafty this weekend!! ;p

Amy said...

Your before pics could be twins with my space, though I have spent yesterday and today cleaning and putting away...and it still doesn't come close to looking like your after pics! LOL!
Your crafty space is awesome Lisa, love it! And I think you need to share your Copic storage pic with everyone over at Color Me Copic! Email me if you can. :)

Amanda R said...

What a difference! But I can't work in clutter either and go thru and do a good cleaning periodically too. Feels good doesn't it?

Bumbles and Fairy-Tales said...

Enjoy your spot :)

Oh wow Lisa. Your desk looks fabulous. What a great area to inspire you to be creative. You've inspired me to tidy my desk now. I too love your copic storage. Where did you get it? It's perfect for copics.
