AHHHHHHH! My Studio is a Black Hole!

I've spent the last week setting up this blog and my pretty new QuickBooks Pro software, creating only 1 or 2 items....and you can see why. About 2 weeks ago my Studio was beautifully organized and tidy. This is what it has become.




Don't get me wrong, I am a VERY messy person, and I know that this doesn't look as bad as many studios, but after a week or two like this I go crazy and need it all to be tidy again. My head doesn't work creatively unless my space is clean and organized, but unfortunately I am missing the Martha Stewart gene that makes me clean as I go! Yes, I know that's the way organized people live, but my pattern is:

  1. Clean and organize and promise to never let this happen again.
  2. Work and tidy after myself for about 1 week.
  3. Let it all go to hell.
  4. Lather, rinse, repeat .

Today I will spend about 2 hours bringing it all back to order so I can again have A Beautiful Mind. I will then tell myself to keep it that way, and then...see #'s 2, 3 and 4 above. I am having the whole thing painted in about 1 month, so I'll have no choice but to really get my act together to prepare it.

I'd love to see some pics of other artist's studios. Please send to me!

Addendum to yesterdays post re Jewelry Designer Manager Software http://www.jewelrydesignermanager.com/. Even though the software combines GST and PST for us Canadians, when I post to QuickBooks Pro (Cdn Version) the taxes are broken down correctly. It's MAGIC!!!
