I’m a little bit explosionating.

I just posted this on Instagram as a sample of the mess that is my craft room. The floor is covered in boxes filled with yarn, WIPs, and various craft supplies.

I actually have a mind to re-arrange the whole room, but I have a few crochet deadlines to meet before setting aside time for Craft Room Overhaul. I am also afraid I will never make time for the overhaul, so hopefully I can zip thought my project for the Sugar High Club art show as well as a secret Yummy You sample (and also assorted Etsy orders) in a fairly timely manner!

I tend to always feel overwhelmed and always behind. I make lots of lists. I live by lists. It feels good to cross things off lists. But I still feel behind!

I know that part of the solution is to learn to say “no” more when it comes to work-related projects, and I think I’m getting better at that, but it’s hard to say no to participating in fun things! Even when I was working in publishing, I always felt behind, always took work home. There were always stacks and stacks of manuscripts to get through, and then more stacks after that. I have never lived my adult life any other way. I suppose this has its pros and its cons!

Speaking of fun projects, I will have a really super awesome great new pattern in a “bookazine” that’s dropping on the 20somethingth of February. I’ll keep you guys posted! I’m so excited for this one!!!!

    I love how there’s packet of cookies in the background ๐Ÿ˜› ! My room looks exactly the same except with bit of maths homework here and there and the odd bio/chem textbook thrown in! All my yarn, hooks and books (which all fit into a small flexitub, hehe!) are hibernating under my bed ๐Ÿ™

      ๐Ÿ˜› Actually I usually don’t eat a lot in there, but I bought those cookies for my mom and I keep forgetting to give them to her!

    This reminds me of me! It’s “organized chaos”, in my book. My stuff might look like my room threw up (haha), but don’t move my stuff, because I know where everything is. Honestly though, I’m either a cluttered mess or hyper organized. I.lI wait to organize my things until it wears on my nerves, and then I’ll organize the heck out of it so I don’t have to do it again for a long time. Lol! Maybe I’m a slacker neat freak? ๐Ÿ˜€
