Hoarders, my version

The above picture is my pack and ship after the holiday season.  The rest of the house looked similar.  It was obvious that the small area I had set aside for shipping was not functioning well.  I was having to wade through the boxes to get to my scale.  I was wishing I could have a professional organizer come in like on "Hoarders" or like on "Oprah" and get me organized. Well hiring a professional is not in my budget, and  I don't need a doctor appointment to tell me I have and organizational disorder, and it wasn't bad enough to get the hoarders team in, so I had to deal with it. Below is the same corner, waiting to be my photo corner, and my pack and ship has expanded to the back of the room.

I still have a way to go, but it is so much better to have the shipping area working smoothly again. All of this organizing and cleaning has kept me out of the studio for a week, and I am looking forward to getting back to my favorite part, the making of things!


  1. It is so easy for that shipping area to get out of control isn't it. I like to think I'm not responsible for mine getting out of control since my hubby seems to dump everything he can't find a better place for there. But I probably do that just as much as he does.

  2. Yeah Sue, I just had to get over that it is a static thing, it is a constantly evolving organism!
