My own space

I am sure I have mentioned quite a few times previously that my work space is an absolute mess. Currently I spread myself out between the study and the dining room, which means that our house looks like a tip when I am in 'creative' mode. Ideally I would like to set up our study so that I can do all my work in there and contain the mess to some extent. I want my creative space to be organised and inspiring in itself so I feel motivated when in there.
So the plan is that when I get a spare few days I am going to start by painting the study white, so it becomes a blank canvas. Then I want to get some shelving to house all my fabrics so they are up off the floor (at the moment all my fabrics are in cardboard boxes on one corner of the room!) and in a covered space to avoid the accumulation of dust that is currently engulfing everything. I want to get a filing cabinet for paperwork and bills so they are organised and out of sight. Then I will have two desks, one for the computer / printer and one for the sewing machine and cutting mat. I hope that having a space dedicated to my sewing machine will mean that I am more productive. Having to set up and pack up the machine each time I start a new project is laborious and time consuming.
So, there you have it! I have a plan... now I just need to stick to it.

I am too embarrased to show you my hideous space in all it's glory, so here are some pics of other peoples (click on the image to link back to the original source)...

You can admire more creative spaces here and here. Enjoy!
