I can't possibly compete with the "big mess" champions, as I have only had six months in my new quarters to spread and create proper chaos. "Orderly chaos" is my preferred term for this. Most of my things are in boxes in the garage, and the pottery supplies (mud pie makings) are in storage - but I have done a fair job of it, even with the handicap of only two rooms to trash. The shelves with the plastic boxes are on shelves over my computer - which is almost buried in scraps of note paper. The book shelves contain the more important of my books that are work oriented - then more above the computer beside the boxes. There are two more chests of drawers not showing - full of threads, yarn, beads, all that good stuff. And where are my clothes? In boxes in the garage, or in heaps under the bed. The jar of paint brushes is sitting on my beloved big double wide filing cabinet - on which also sits my printer.
