organizing, clearing clutter, and focusing

I've been trying to clear out and organize my studio so that I can actually find things that I know I put away... I have more supplies than storage space, so something needs to change. I'm trying to figure out if I need to just focus on one thing - like the fiber art - and get rid of everything else - like the collage supplies for my Daily Visual Journal (which doesn't happen daily anymore).

I often feel like I would like more time to work on my art, but when I do have time I don't know where to start because I have so many projects in progress. My studio and office space is cluttered with papers, books, supplies, half-finished projects... I'm surprised I can get anything done. As I write this I am getting annoyed just thinking about how much clutter I accumulate. I tell myself I'll be able to focus better with a clean space, but somehow immediately after I clear everything away, different things appear in it's place.

I'm going to try again. I'm going to clear out my studio and put back only fiber related supplies. My collage supplies will be relegated to one box. All my unfinished projects will either be scrapped or put in line to finish. Time to get serious!

here are the before pics of my studio (slightly embarrassing but now I must get it organized!):

    Thank you for sharing the visual. I have much of my own "clutter" to release.

    1. hopefully soon I'll be able to post a progress picture - so far, I think I've cleared about five things, so it needs a lot work :)
