I'd loto be neat and tidy, but I'm not. Had a big tidy up last week so I can at least see the floor though :-)
'love' not 'loto' - stupid predictive text
I guessed what you meant ;-)I think I'm selectively tidy :-/
I know that feeling. I'm generally untidy, but I quite like having a blitz every now and again
Good to know I'm in good company :-)
Yep, my desk is a mess too. Every now and again I blitz it - think it might be due for a New Year blitz!(sorry about the aborted comment- Im using someone elses computer and realised the were still logged in!)
I wondered who that was... now deleted forever.Yes, I need to clear the decks :-)
Hi just found your lovely blog, try to keep it clean.
Spent most of yesterday putting things back to where they were supposed to be - I could do with Mary Poppins help I think.
I procrastinate by tidying up.
I'm like Terry, I can put off work for hours by having a good sort out. The problem is that now I work mainly from my laptop in the morning room so my old desk upstairs is used only to put stuff down on and then I can ignore it and walk away. Not good.
Celia, your studio looks like a very active scene...and that's good! In my little apartment I aspire to organized clutter. Lots of stuff, but I do know where everything is, and regularly sort out the clutter categories' fiefdoms.Christmas preparations introduced some true spacial challenges, but the preparations were such fun, I didn't mind a bit. Today is going to be a clearing up day...maybe I can finish by noon. xo
Yes... my desk is a mess too. I'm meant to be tidying up this afternoon!
When I'm in a creative flow everything is everywhere, which can be very annoying as I'm a tidy person at heart! :) x
I've done mine - come on your can do it :)
My work table looks very similar but the rest of the place is quite neat.I like the new look of your blog, not sure when you changed it but I am playing catch-up after illness.Happy New Year to you and Cliff.
I'm tidy at heart and it never gets too bad but it's often a mess really.
I don't think that's messy at all Celia. At least it shows you are doing something!
Ha. no, that looks tidy to me!! I have several paintings and scraperboards on the go, each has a pile of ref books, sketches, roughs which revolve and mingle and spawn! Anyway, I don't trust tidy!! ;-)
I believe making art, is a kind of pulling things out of chaos into some form of order, so studios reflect that process, it is very satisfying when it works, but a clear-out now and then helps too!
I vary between tidy and chaos, I guess like many of us. Just had a major tidy before teaching a lino class and even got the vacuum cleaner out!!
But if your desk is a mess, then it is all in order in your mind!
I'm never tidy. I used to claim it was because I didn't have enough storage, but I am forced to confront the fact that I am just a naturally untidy person. Ho hum. There are worse failings. Though I do get frustrated with myself when it takes an extra half hour to get going on a task because I have to unbury my desk/hunt down my secateurs/go fossiking around for my favourite knife...
I love reading all the comments (except for spam and advertising which I will delete) and I'll reply here in the comments under each blog post, it may take a few days if I'm busy.You don't need to have a blog to leave a comment, you can select the name/URL option and fill in just your name instead of a blog link.And, I've turned off that annoying word verification malarkey, to make it easy for you :-)
