I'll Bet Descartes' Bedside Was Never This Messy...

Jacquie over at Wild Ink gave me an idea. She posted a shot of her desk (which looked very organised to me.) I thought I might share a glimpse into the shameful clutter of my bedside table. Since the dining room table is layers deep with computer parts, miscellaneous "important" papers, wool, old coffee cups and the like, I do most of my work sitting on the bed. Consequently, the area around the bed resembles a nest of tripwires and hidden hazards.

Added the next day:

Obviously, no magical elves came in the night to tidy up. I suppose this could make an interesting, if pathologically revealing, animated sequence if I kept taking photos from day to day.

    I could go on, I have a large collection!
    I am thinking you are not getting 'a bit' at the moment?

  4. Awww, thanks Jude. I was just thinking that I bet Jude has a perfect immaculate house so that she can pour her creative energies into her stitching. Where are the elves when we need them?

    Oh no, no elves, please! I would never find anything if someone would clean my... floor. (Tables... are just not big enough for my clutter...)

  6. Thanks! I love seeing other people's clutter. I can either feel superior or like a kindred spirit, depending on my mood, and how recently I straightened up.

    Your clutter is inspiring. My desk may look "organized" (it must be the illusion created by the neat row of post-it notes), but I didn't show the floor beside my desk...
