Sneak Peek – My Workspace

Now that all the spring cleaning is done – oh, who am I kidding? My workspace is always in some form of disarray with at least 3 projects going at once. But I was able to make it semi presentable before I left for vacation. Since I live in an apartment and don’t have extra space for storage (I would kill to give some of my stuff the Harry Potter treatment), I made due with what I had. Here is a peek inside the mind my organized chaos (which is the best any of us can ask for sometimes).

Allons-y!

So that’s my space! What’s your workspace look like? Super neat, complete mess, or systematic chaos?
