My computer is back and she is up and running again! I won't go into detail as to what happened, but I will say it was caused by Operator Error! Yep, that's right! I caused a fatal error with my ITunes and lost my entire ITunes Library. That's when the computer decided that it was just all too much to handle, she just froze up! She back now ...and running perfect; but without my ITunes Library!

While she was away; the mice will play! Since I did not have my computer, I decided to launch on another 'Stash Busting' expedition in my studio. Let's see ...how many times is this now? I think perhaps I've launched this expedition on four or five other occasions. I think I have finally accomplished the cleaning and organizing of my studio though. Hopefully this is the last reorg!

REPEAT AFTER ME! I will pledge from this day forward to buy NO more fabric, yarn or tool for my studio!

YEA RIGHT, like that's going to happen!



EEEKKKKKKKK! What a mess!

Does anybody else have this problem?

There were bags and bags of garbage!

AND NOW ....

I can B R E A T H E!

Everything is once again all organized!

Part of my inspiration wall! The banner reads 'CREATE'!

AND NOW .....

I have lots and lots of things set aside to list on my Etsy account. I've already listed some yarn and have more to come. There will also be fabric, kits and patterns. I just decided it was all too much and I would never get to all of it in my lifetime. So, over the next few weeks I will be posting these 'over excess' items on Etsy. I may even decided to do a giveaway or two!

I keep threatening to clean my studio. It looks much like your before photos.
You did a good job, your studio looks wonderful.

Do you know how much I love your before pictures?! You know, you see these incredible, everything in it's place, studios and you start to think yours is the only one with, ~ahem~ "piles". You did a great job on your cleanup and now it looks like those other wonderful studio pics! Cleaning up mine is on my list as soon as I get this next batch of pillows listed this weekend:>)Now I need to see if you have anything I can't live without at etsy!

Such wonderful "after" pictures.
I can only get the stage of the "before" ones!

Alice, your studio looks so beautiful. Wow, all I could see in those before photos were the fabric stacks...you must have so much. Great to get it organized isn't it?? Now, can I have you come over to my studio to work your magic??

It looks great! Isn't it amazing how quickly things get out of hand! It does in my studio, for sure. Good to see you back. Have a lovely week!
