I love sitting at my desk. It feels good to wake up when it is still dark out, and admire my work space all lit up. It is kind of like how you get mesmerized by a campfire or lit Christmas tree.

However, a lot of the time,  there is a pile of stuff left there from my last project.  Instead of getting inspired to do art work, the pile inspires me to organize.

This morning, after seeing my hole punches all scattered on the desk, I thought up a better way to organize my them. So, great! Accomplishment. But no art work done. 

When I am in the flow, I don't see the chaos. But afterwards, it keeps me from moving on to the next project. It feels like procrastination to organize my space when I want to work, but I can't move on until it is done. I wish I knew how you folks who are always tidy and organized, do it.

For the record, I don't believe those people really exist. I think they're like fairies or gnomes or elves.

I agree with Jenny and I am one of those neat artist. When I'm working things can get rather messy. But I do try and tidy up when I'm done for the day.

You have to tidy up whilst the next idea brews;I think it is all part of the process.
