I made an effort to actually complete the projects on my table.  It's not like I have a deadline, but if I had the creative spark to arrange the beads in a necklace-like shape, I should at least follow through.

What helps?  Football games.  Seriously.  I have a small travel bead board that I pile with stuff and take downstairs and work on stuff while we watch very important football games.  You can see it's blue handle in the middle.  Football watching is not something we do much in the fall - too much going on outside and frankly, both our local team, and my husband's life-long favorite team, ahem, didn't exactly have exciting seasons.  So...progress...but it still looks like semi-organized chaos:

Doesn't really look too bad, until I show you the entire picture:

See the stuff stacked on my chair, on my laptop (yep there is a computer in there), and blocking my printer?  Not looking so great.  It's enough to make the three dudes on the wall look away.  Thankfully they don't, instead they share knowing smiles (the pictures are my Grandfather, Father and Brother).

Be sure to check out all of this week's entries for BTW on Flickr!


  1. That's hilarious! You're out of control!

  2. Glad to see that my desk isn't the only one! :)

  3. Dang! That is exactly, EXACTLY what I had in mind in my previous studio. I had a wall o' sheet metal installed by my friend the heating and cooling expert and I always wanted to use those little tins to put stuff up! I love your space. I would feel right at home there. ;-)
    Enjoy the day!

  4. Hey that's not a bad set up - I'm MADLY in love with your metal board and holders. You must talk about this in more detail!

    Can relate on sports. I sit and work practically every night as Mr. W controls the remote. :)

  5. Oh am I dreaming or is that real! What an awesome workspace!
