Breathe in the Clean

So this weekend, I decided I simply could not stand it anymore. My craft room was *gasp* unfit to craft in. Possible backgrounds were buried by stock and the whole mess was making using my lighbox require an uncanny amount of balance and grace. Neither of which I am overmuch blessed with. My craft table was 2 inches deep in torn paper, mocked up cards, paintings waiting to be hung, a work in progress, extra paper, and random "stuff" that needed to be filed, stored, and otherwise dealt with. My stock area was stacking up and the floor was covered in boxes, bags with supplies, and an overflowing trash can (it's all paper trash, so it's not unsanitary, but it's not exactly calming and zen-like).

So I spent some time taking the room to task. I cleaned, filed, stored, boxed, tidied, and ended homelessness (amoung craft supplies).

And now, what everyone wants to see.
