Another week passes, WOYWW 172?

Well another week has passes and I've done no crafting, BUT I have to say that I haven't stopped all week. I've been busy gutting out my bed/craft room. My room has always been a messy pit, but last week I decided enough was enough. If you've not come over from Stamping ground, Julia's worldwide blog hop where we all get to nosey around craft desks around the world, then click

I had a MASSIVE clear out, and binned almost a wheelie bin full of junk. It took me four days but at last it is looking better. Now I just have to re-decorated, but if I do that, I'm back to the mess I've been up to my neck in for days. Anyway here's how bad it was!

This is the unit I kept most of my stuff on, but it took over the whole room, I've now re-organised and scaled down hugely.

Aggggg! The worstest before the bestest lol

I shall post a finished photo once I've decorated, don't hold your breath though.


  1. Mine is a a craft/bedroom bedroom ...and it looks like yours. I sorted and decorated it and within 6 months its was back to normal ...but then I did not get rid of much because I am part thanks for dropping by xx#8

  2. Glad were inspiring you to make strides and you can keep us posted every Wed now! Tamika #139

  3. Oh dear Angie don't tell me that, I have high hopes of keeping it tidy lol yeah right!

    Will keep you posted Jojorenee :)

  4. How brave to throw a wheelie bins worth away, most of us are hoarders lol! I have had paint testers on my wall for monthd, on settling on a colour I cannot muster up the courage to begin the mammoth task that is redecorating lol

  8. Good on ya for getting organised and wow! for clearing out a wheelie bin of stuff. I can't bear to part with anything and it just seems to multiply!! Just think of your decorating as another crafty project and you'll soon be through it. Can't wait to see the transformation:) Thanks for dropping by, hugs Buttons x

  9. Good for you getting through the clearing out - that is the worst bit... and how come it always looks far worse before it gets any better?! Looking forward to the big reveal but, as instructed, I'll keep breathing in the meantime! Thanks so much for dropping by, and happy WOYWW!

  11. OOooooo!! I LOVE big cleaning time for the studio! I hate doing it, but I love finding things I "had to have" that I lost, and nothing finer than having a clean and organized space!! Too bad I don't have the strength to do mine!! Can't wait to see yours, but I won't hold my breath! LOL!

  12. Ahh, that is a room to my own heart. My room is definitely the before model, just never becomes the after, so congrats if you can make yours the after picture :)
    Have a great week.

  13. Cath your room looks just like mine. I feel so much better now!
    Have a great Thursday, bit late here!
    Hugs Erika.

  14. I don’t know how you manage to craft in your bedroom Cath, I have a designated room and can’t even manage to keep that tidy. At least I can just come out, shut the door and forget about it until I go back in. Judging by your next post you’ve done a fab job of tiding though……..can you spare a few days to come and do mine for me?

    Thanks for stopping by this week.
    Happy Crafting!

  15. Love the before and after shots - well done on a lot of hard work! I have to do the same before Doone & JoZart come to stay, I think! Ach well, it'll be worth it!

    Thanks for stopping by...
