    I painted my room this past summer too. a pale yellow. pulled the carpet up..the wood is a mess, but i wanted to be able to move all my stuff around, since most if it is on wheels. If i ever get the floor to the point where you can see it..i will be able to use the swiffer to get the threads and dog hair off it...

    I just cleaned up my cutting table! That's where the real problem lies, for me. 'Cause I can't part with the little bits. Might just be useful for something. Don't have time to sort it, at the time of cutting... so I just toss it to one side, and the pile builds.

    I can see most of the surface of my cutting table, now, which is rare indeed.

    I don't think you can be both neat and creative at the same time, can you? I know I can't...........

    What a great idea-and I need motivation I think! If I don't get mine cleaned I will not have the room for my new sewing center hubby is building. Mine is awful compared to all of the ones posted here...hang my head in shame...oyyy...
    BUT I am going to jump in and get it done. Now I will go take some pictures to post!

    (I absolutely loved the border wallpaper but when my daughter was about 12 months old or so she woke up from her nap and decided to peel it while waiting in her crib :-( )

    Well here goes ...

    I ventured into the sewing room to take BEFORE photos. New at this on-line stuff so hope I got these uploaded to Flickr correctly.
    http://www.flickr.com/photos/3007721...7623106160616/

    It's amazing that the photos look so much worse than I thought the room looked. Hopefully tomorrow I will feel up to be moving a bit more to start cleaning-up.

    Yesterday I catalogued all 342 of my magazines. Today I started on the books, I'm at 103 from the two bottom shelves, three more shelves to go. Then I'm going to make a list of all my embroidery threads. :thumbup:

    I might actually get organized before I go back to work on Feb 1st, but how do you keep it organized when sewing?? :?:
    I so want to be like Eleanor Burns and throw stuff over my shoulder and have someone else clean it up.

    hi watterside you sure are brave... went to the address site you gave us. I love all your ingenious ideas on how you use items in ways that are different from what they were meant to be used for. Very clever and creative. I have been tidying up my sewing room for I don't know how many months and I am still not finished yet. I have been transferring all my stuff from inside the house to the outside rooms. I also do a lot of other things i.e. cards, decoupage, sewing etc and so I have to find a place for all the paraphernalia that all my hobbies have. have a great 2010. Thanks for trying to get us motivated - I am not a procrastinator, but I need motivation.... :O) ciao
