Studio Saturday at Artbeadscene

Welcome to Studio Saturday! Each week one of our contributors gives you a sneak peek into their studio, creative process or inspirations. We ask a related question of our readers and hope you'll leave comments! As an incentive we offer a free prize each week to bribe you to use that keyboard. The following week we choose a random winner.
This weeks winner is Cindy Dolezal.
You have won a pair of Toad Stool charms from the studio of Jennifer Heynen
Send Jennifer an e-mail with your address and she will get it right out to you.

This week we visit the studio of Tari Sasser at Creative Impressions In Clay.
Well it used to look like a studio. Now it could be declared a disaster area. 

I can get to my desk and my computer. There is a path, sorta. Yes, it's embarassing but I have to take on the attitude of my coffee mug above so I can get done what little is possible, when you have a mess like this. Blinders are on until you have time to deal with it.
The culprit for the standstill is the blue shelf on the left. I measured the shelf and the space and it still won't fit. I guess it helps if you measure the correct spot the includes the countertop. I am determined it will fit. You can see I took a hammer to it but the front lip still won't it fit. I am determined, I will win. The photo on the right is where my little photo booth lives. Now there is loads of stuff piled on it.

I had intended to show a new design today but, I can't find it. Wonder why?

The left side and right side of the studio with a path. You can't move forward till one thing is moved so the next item can be moved and so on. The first thing to be moved it the shelf and it's stuck. I have been living like this for about a month. The good thing or bad (whichever way you look at it) I don't have a lot of orders currently. The time is now available, until the next child needs something and I have to stop. Working at home is both a blessing and a curse. They all think because you are home you are available all the time.
My actual working space where I glaze has shrank significantly. It's the shift and the shuffle when you are working to complete a project.
Piles and stacks are everywhere. I think it's time to ditch the old computer so I can use the space. 
Hope no one tries to fax, it's buried in the corner.
Now that I've aired my dirty, I should probably try to start moving, condensing, rearranging and cleaning my studio. 
Give us dirty laundry, sing it Don!
When I am finished, I am going to have a studio sale. 

My question this week is:
How bad is your clutter? Or working space.
Leave a comment at Art Bead Scenes blog and you could win the 4 buttons pictured. Because I could find them!

I don't feel so alone after seeing your studio... I posted pictures of my messy work space on Facebook and I've now decided to describe it as organized chaos! :)
