my creative space: colourful mess

This is what my sewing table looks like most days... I wish it was a bit more orderly!

From front to back: new rainclouds fabric (for purses) plus some other purse designs, little pink cardboard template, a work in progress next to a half-finished cup of tea, zips and labels on (and around) my cake stand.

A better view - artworks on my pinboard from some favourite artists!

My zips kept erupting from my zip cabinet, I think I need something prettier than a cardboard box for them to sit in.

My storage for finished products is slightly less chaotic! The red box on top contains business cards, the wine coloured box contains gift tags, and the pink & white box contains bear to deer cards (elephant to rabbit are underneath). (You can buy everything in my shop, remember?)

And some works in progress, waiting to be cut out. How cute is that apple fabric? My friend Wendy gave it to me, it's from an awesome vintage skirt!

Oh I like the chaos... it makes me feel a wee bit better, even though your productivity blows me out of the water!

If I were you I would just sit & stare at the lovely little corner of finished pretty when I got a little overwhelmed by "the rest". ;)

I love seeing your creative space! I especially love the finished products section... it's inspiring me to create something fo rmy finished products too, rather than in piles on my desk!

Oooh I like how you have all your finished stock nicely lined up where you can see it all. That's a fab idea.

Gina said...

Ohhh... that apple fabric IS cute. And your space looks perfectly workable. I get very very suspicious of minimalist 'creative spaces'.
