Document 31 or Help I'm drowning in my art supplies

Well, I made a valiant effort at my Doc-u-ment 31 but missed the last half of July. It's rough to do anything with 3 hour PT sessions 3 days a week. But I did document most of my month and this is part of it. These are the before pictures of part of my art space. As you can guess from the photos I don't have a room to call my own. This is actually the dining area of my home. Hubby calls it command central but as you can see it's seriously unorganized at the moment. It's going to take some time but I'm slowly working it into shape. The goal for this area is to get it straightened out again, thinned out, and work on a better layout for most used supplies. I'm motivated in the next couple of weeks to get the thinning done as our local scrapbook store is having another "Trade Days" event or basically an art garage sale. I have dibs on a table already and determined to let some more stuff find a new home. I made almost enough at the last Trade Days to pay for a new rolling tote. Mine had blown out a zipper. I now have 2 nice new rolling totes thanks to a couple of good sale finds. Much easier to travel with and almost packed nicely too. Anyway, I'm going to keep on Documenting the odd day here and there. I'm finding it helps clear the mind a bit and flesh out goals and art ideas. Now to get my journal finished.
