What This Blogger Was Doing For Weeks Before The Blog Party!

First of all, I must tell you that I was completely overwhelmed by all of the visitors who came to this little blog and left the kindest and most thoughtful comments on my Where Bloggers Create II post.
Thank you to all who took the time to visit here. I hope you know that you're welcome anytime at all. I loved seeing so many (I didn't quite get to the entire 450 but I skipped around a lot) inspiring craftroom/studios and I have taken notes and bookmarked spaces to steal borrow some great ideas. The sincerest form of flattery, right? I have met some wonderful new friends and my faithful buddies were right here cheering me on...I love you! Now because everything I do has to have some humor injected...I give you this...
I promised I'd show you what my "creative space"looked like 2 weeks before the big reveal...

 Just keeping it real for you!
If I can clean, rearrange and reorganize my space...anyone can!
I'm loving this look so much more...

I didn't get to your creative space, but I am glad I waited. I got the biggest treat, the before and after! Your more of a craft store than a craft room! I am so glad this makes us clean up our rooms once a year!

Joyce ~ I just want to say "thank you"!! Really, seriously....I am so encouraged by the "before" photos. It gives me hope. : )

I haven't made much progress on my space yet. Other things have gottenin the way. But I have plans and plenty of inspiration ~ and oh yes, I have hope! Thanks friend!!

Put a bed in there and I'm moving in! It's so pretty, Joyce!

You are a true inspiration! I'm so glad to see that a very creative person can work in a little clutter, but how nice to have everything so well organized.

This does make me chuckle! I have a space for beads and a space for paper and one is usually total chaos (the one I am working in) and the other is relatively clean). I have never had both clean at once!
Thanks for keeping it real, dear woman!

oh Joyce! Even the "before" is not that bad! But of course the "after" is more inspiring! You made a great cleaning!
But don't forget to ink that angel stamp and use it somewhere!

Oh my gosh Joyce! You would not think it was the same space! This was such a fun behind the scenes peek at your harried two weeks! It doesn't matter one single bit when you can create the beautiful things that you do. Again, it was such fun seeing your creative space! E PS just waiting for one post card participant to mail.


It looks good the first way...seeing that you are a creative person...things need to be handy!
It looks good fixed up too!

I so adore the reality of it all. Makes me feel so much better about myself, my mess. Mimi
