Please pardon the mess while we are under construction!

Creativity has come to a screeching halt as my office is under construction. 
This was last week:

This is today:

The guest bedroom with all my stuff piled everywhere
Building a work table and shelves right into the wall using old barn wood from this barn:

I only had time to create one ATC for a swap due this week:
ATC with a fence: "Wildflowers along a fence"

So my focus has been on organizing my forever cluttered desk in the living room which is ALWAYS a disaster.  Piles of mail, swaps needing to be filed in my swapping binder, journals coming in and going out, and mail waiting for something done;  it is an eye sore!  

Looking forward to sharing my newly created work space with you next week!
Sneaking peeks at other’s creative spaces at What’s On Your Workdesk? Wednesday  Won’t you join in on the fun!  We would love to see what’s on your work desk!


  1. Definitely wip! It will be great when finished I'm sure! Love your atc! Good luck getting everything sorted! Chrisx 42

  5. I love th fact that your desk hash been reclaimed from that old amazing! It makes for a fab workspace, that's for sure. Hope the rest of the renovations go well :-)

  6. Wow! This was quite a shock after seeing your beautifully organized studio shots last week, before the remodeling. However, reorganizing can be good creative therapy, and I LOVE that reclaimed wood work table. I'm glad you at least got to do an ATC, which I really like the 3-D effect on. Happy WOYWW and Blessings!

  7. Hi Diane, now that's a surprise, really looking forward to seeing the finished studio remodeling.
    The ATC is lovely, I think you have done well to make that Lol!
    Thank you so much for the visit to mine.
    Have a great week and happy crafting, when you get the chance, Angela x #44

    Hugs & Thanks for visiting me earlier Neet 14 xx

  9. Your new creative space is going to be great!

  10. Hi Diane,

    I can't wait to see the new space. I love the idea of using recycled wood from the barn. The ATC looks nice and summery.

    Thank you for visiting me! I'm hoping to finish my desk hopping today.

    Happy belated WOYWW
    Peace, Kay (65)

  11. Love that you are using something old to create your desk. That looks like an amazing barn.

  12. WOW that's a big change! That will be a lot of new crafting surface D. Beautiful ATC. One plus to having things out is that it's more difficult to forget where you put them lol.

  13. Oh my word, Diane what a change from last week! Trust it is going well, and you will soon have all your space back.
    Take care. God bless.

  14. Oh wow you are getting it all sorted what fun you must be having and you will have a new creative space to play in. Gosh you could have it already as I am very late in getting back to people this week it has been manic for me worse than normal. I do hope you forgive as I am doing the last minute dash to make up for it.

    Hugs Eliza & Yoda
