Workroom cleaning

It was time again. To do the big clean up. I had no clue anymore what I had, what I needed and what I didn't need. I threw away a lot of junk and sorted out my minis in cute little containers. Now I feel so organized. I know from experience that it doesn't last long before I am back to the same old mess! So hence the pictures that I share with you.

I also got in an old drawer that I have filled with clay. I used to have the clay in cardboard boxes, but the clay is very heavy and the boxes weren't too sturdy so I had to come up with something else. Seems to be good for now. Also every time I do a big clean up I need to put something new in the room or change a bit. I am all about having the carrot in front of my nose so to speak;)

Hope you like my new workspace.  Are you having a clean up these days?..It seems like it  is a very sping thing to do:)

Caseymini said...

I have been cleaning mine all morning. Then I came here and saw yours. I think I will just throw in a lighted match and close the door on mine. It is never going to look as neat as yours! Beautiful room!

Ana said...

Christel your studio looks so cosy, the best way to get inspired for new projects is to have our workspace clean and organized, I must do the same to mine as the weather gets better.

Your room looks very nice.
I wish i had a workroom.
I make my mini's on the diningtable,so there is alway something on it that has to dry.
Most of the times we eat with our plate on our lap.

Funnily enough I have just been having a little clean out as I have just claimed our sunporch as my workroom (although it's far too hot to work there in the summer!).
However compared to your beautiful room Christel I think my space is more like a large cupboard with windows, lol!

I love your room Christel, being quite new to minis it was like stepping into Pandoras box the first time I visited you!!!!

Daisy said...

What a lovely space! I just had fun organizing my space too although it's just a nook compared to your space. So light and cheerful!

what a fabulous workspace Christel:0) whenever I feel swamped with work or cant find inspiration for a new project I tidy mine up.
The clean room makes you feel fresh and ready to start and you always find ideas as you tidy !

Vilket underbart arbetsrum du har! Allt på samma plats och i en sån ordning! Jag tror att alla skulle vilja ha ett lika rum som ditt...

miniacollection said...

I love your work room, it is so bright and big. Mine needs also some tyding up ...It's not easy because it is for my miniatures and my English lessons too.

Jean Day said...

Such a beautiful studio! I love organizing too, great way to find new ideas and it feels so good.

Irene said...

How I envy you having a whole room! I wont get one till the offspring leave home and there's no sign of that yet! I can still appreciate seeing else's lovely tidy space though. Time well spent, Christel.

Oh, Christel, your workspace is just gorgeous! I look forward to the day when I can organize mine. For the moment, I draw and write and craft in my husband's office and it is not my idea of a workspace, but the fun of creating outshines it all. I am so glad to know you!

Beautiful workspace Christel! I agree, Spring does have an effect on wanting to clean things up again. Fresh Start so to speak. Did a little tidying up today myself, but really need to do a complete redo. Your studio is inspiring, thanks for sharing it with us!
