OK Girl! You are going to have to do better than that! I totally showed you my HORRIBLE mess, and you just gave us a hint. COME ON! GIVE! Show us all of it! I love seeing it - especially around Christmas with company coming!!! Whooo Hoo!
I am almost done with my gift. And I actually straightened up the studio tonight. Whew!
How funny that we both posted our messy spaces with our creative ideas. :) YAY!
Merry Christmas! Have fun!

Wow! your blog is truly eye candy, lol! I love receiving hand made items, they are so much more meaningful, but no one in my family or none of my friends is very crafty. So I guess it's up to me, haha!
Love the work you are doing, the recipients are very lucky :-)
I hope you get into the Christmas spirit soon, maybe a small break to watch something festive, or a drive around looking at the lights will help.
Have a Merry Christmas!
