where i stand sunday

I've talked about wanting organization for a long time. Not perfect, just reasonably under control. I hesitate to show photos, feeling vulnerable, embarrassed, cringing at the judgement that I know people will fling at me.

But I know I am not alone. I know there are other artists out there that share the same struggle. So I'll share the journey, offer a chance to see how to find a way out of not only the physical clutter but the mental mess as well.




Where I Stand is an ongoing photo essay examining the different places I spend my life standing. Too often we take for granted the everyday places we spend our lives walking on. The ground we tread on has its own stories to tell.

I need to do the same and hope to be motivated by what you share. I also wonder how you will be inspired by this process.

Don't worry what others say. I did this awhile back and posted my "organized" studio. Someone commented that it was too cluttered for them!! I thought it was pretty organized for me. But it's time for me to do that again.

I'm there with you and will look forward to traveling along on this journey !

The ridiculous thing is that I have the storage containers in my cart, and I balk at the money - in fact I think I will just go and press that "buy me" button! Thank you!

If you could only see my space, you would know that I won't judge, ever. Love and rainbows, baby.

So glad you posted on this w/pictures!!! I keep thinking my room is organized but then I look at all the 'stuff' I don't use or have to put away or work on...it's not bad but could be sooooooooooooooooooo much better...can't wait to see what all you do. Maybe encouragement for the rest of us.

I think "organization" is over rated!!! Although, I do reach a point in my studio when I NEED to get everything in order!!! (Not that I DO...I just feel like I need to!!)

Helen said...

Dang, now I really feel guilty about putting off my sewing room purge!

Nice to see someone else gets in a mess occasionally. I feel better now. Maybe I'll find some space on my desk to play with my new TAP (we live in hope)
