Feng Shui in a Craft Room

You watched one of Marion's videos (apieceofcraftdotcom on YouTube), and it was one of her and her husband. Garrett was saying that having disorganization, even if it is enclosed in a box or basket, causes your feng shui(sp?) to be off, which causes your creativity and inspiration to be blocked. Believe it!

While you were sick recently, when you would get something or go in to make a card real quick, you would leave the mess out because you didn't feel like cleaning up. Also, before you got sick you had been doing a huge creation of stock for the store of my items, and that left the new Tim Holtz stuff, your Big Shot stuff (which is still not organized to your satisfaction), all the stamps and things you used for the happy bday cards for Mama, and the paints and things that you had been using all out too! So the area is a mess that needs to be cleaned up, and there is a lot of new things that need a home. TH stuff is now in a box, but it is not organized, but where to put it. The chipboard box, which has cut chipboard pieces from packaging, coasters, etc. in it is in such chaos, it is hard to be motivated to do a mini---that you are dying to do--because you will have to deal with that stuff in that box! Oh, and you have a new (old) bookshelf that needs painting--it is bumblebee yellow leftover from the old elementary school, which you bought from the neighbor for $20-- and you need to get all my children's bookmaking things on that shelf too.

So after watching the video, you know for a fact that you are sort of avoiding the area because of the chaos within, even though when it is cleaned up there is no visible chaos. The new bookshelf will help a LOT. But there is a huge need to take some of those "chaos in a box" boxes and organize them more neatly. It will really help your "aura".
LOL--- No, you are not some new age hippie or anything, but what Garrett (Marion's husband from the video) said really made sense!! Her room is so neat/oragnized, and you love that she has a small sofa and table for sitting and reading, etc. You would probably spend a ton of time in your room if you had a seating area...
Maybe your next plan should be to rearrange and add that red comfy chair!
