Chaos

This is what happens to my office during the holidays...


utter chaos!


I spent most of the day organizing...and playing with Trux!

(dog toy found here)

Is this a cute dog, or what?

"The great pleasure of a dog is that you may make a fool of yourself with him and not only will he not scold you, but he will make a fool of himself too."

Holy moly. I don't feel so bad about my office now.

Yes, Trux is a cutie. Are those freckles?

High Desert Diva said...

Yeah...it's bad when you can no longer walk through the room! All better now!

Yep, Trux has freckles on his nose!

Lisa B. said...

He is a very cute dog! Does he do filing?

willow said...

Okay. Whew. I am very relieved to know that you are a normal human. I guess it was those photo shoot pics of your house that had me fooled! ;^)

Love that pic of Mark on your sidebar. He's a handsome guy!

And yes, that is THE cutest dog!!!

Jenn said...

Oh I can so relate to your pain & your goal. That is what my entire house ended up looking like this past holiday season. I am also busy working to get it to a more realistic level now, one where I can see floor again lol.

Indeed, that is one cute dog :)

Cecile/DreamCreateRepeat said...

I LOVE that last photo. What a wonderful portrait of your pet! Aren't dogs special?! And cheaper to own than horses.... ; )

My {S.T.U.F.F.} :: said...

Hey that's not fair...you can still see the floor :D

Trux...I'm in {luv}

sherry said...

What a great dog to distract you! I'm in the midst of a great clean up myself.

Sweet Repose said...

I'm still laughing I want you to know!!! That is just the funniest picture, as mine looks exactly the same. I was looking for a pair of earrings that I had just made the other day, cause I wanted to wear them...looked for two days for them in the 'heap'(my desk)...well I finally found one of them, but the other was still missing. Well I got to thinking, I am always fumbling around the table in the wee DARK hours of the morning and I have a waste can that sits right under the table...well we all know where this is going...

Think I'll go play chase the ball with you know who...Scratchy say she luvs Trux 'freckles'...LOL...

ARTISANNE said...

You have inspired me to de-clutter! :0)

High Desert Diva said...

Trust me, we don't live in the uber clean house the photo shoot reflects. Major clean-up took place prior to shooting!

Elizabeth said...

I think playing with Trux is more important than anything else.
Yes he is, indeed, a cool dog.

Word verification: aptne

the blogosphere thinks what you are doing is APT

perhaps it's a new noun for 'things that are suitable'?
a little Latinate?

Wouldn't take that one now: repaper
is that an instruction?

Grizzly Mountain Arts said...

Yours only looks like that over the holidays, huh? :) Mine looks like that EVERY day, and Dave's looks worse! LOL When I'm glazing pendants, my dining room table looks the same :)

Victoria said...

Thanks for sharing your work space pictures... I don't feel so alone anymore!

And Trux is not only a cutie, but a real true beauty! His little "tire swing" toy is adorable, too!

Linda Sue said...

Yup, Trux is right up there on the list of cutest in the universe! I am so glad that you posted photos of your creative mess- I feel so - normal- now. Thank you for that!
Mine is an exagerated version of yours...

Bonbon Oiseau said...

hmm..cleaning or playing with Trux? I'll take playing...i can't seem to get back to work myself...good luck lady!

BaldyLocks said...

Trux looks a lot like the dog I had. Boy, I sure miss her.

Beth said...

I had to keep mine clean this holiday season- it is spillover guest space and was being used. Which also means my craft time had to be negotiated with the company.

And, yes, your dog is cute!

T.Allen-Mercado said...

My workspace is my junk drawer! I *really* need to clean it, I just let it go too long and now I'm afraid of it! :)

*Waves at Trux*

Waterrose said...

I've still got my blinders on so that "I see no clutter in my office." And, how's that working for me...it's not!

Happy New Year and much success!

hmstrjam said...

hello i love your animals! definitely believe cats to be spirits come to earth! ps your photo is great, annie oakley style

Heather said...

I can totally relate to your office area...and that is a cute dog-- i recently became a god person myself ;)

Mary-Laure said...

That awesome dog looks so proud with his rope-and-tire in his mouth! Gosh I love dogs...

fly tie said...

definitely a cute dog. :-)

i like the office like that. looks good and broken in. :-D

nichole said...

Hope the great clean up went well. Tough to get started, but feel soooo good when you're done!

Cynthia said...

Less is more! I've got to remember that...I have the same clutter problem...recuring...though not just after Christmas! The pics didn't show so I'll come back later.

A Cuban In London said...

And there I was thinking that my office looked like a tip :-). Good luck with the tidying up. Mind you in my previous job I had a reputation for having the messiest desk in the office.

Greetings from London.

Rosebud Collection said...

I tell you, I can't seem to get my act together..At least you are having a good time with the dog..He is so darn cute.

Alissa said...

Dude...I KNOW! Except, I have the problem of having my office look like that ALL the time lately! I just can't keep it organized...such a simple concept--put something away where you got it when you're done using it! Perhaps a new year's resolution is in order for both of us!

tatsuko said...

I'm still scared to spend more than 5 minutes in my work room - the mess is overwhelming! At least I finally organized most of my craft show display stuff...

Trux is a cutie - I like her smile in the last photo :)

Karen from A`Musements said...

Don't mention this to Cammie, but that Trux is QUITE the cutie!
That picture with the toy at the last of your post is AMAZING... you MIGHT be meant for National Geographic, Domestic Animal Division....

Karine said...

TRUX!!!! He is so wonderful. And I think my studio looked worse, about a week ago. Yikes!

XUE said...

I'm so glad to see this pic of yr office - now I can invite you over! And looking at the other comments - I'm so glad that I'm normal too!

Hey Harriet said...

Aaaargh! I keep leaving comments on your blog and they keep disappearing. Your blog hates me!

Take 2: It makes me very happy to see the state of your office as I now know that you are a regular little messy piglet ;D Not the super dooper tidy type I imagined you to be.

Trux is so cute!

vicki archer said...

Love your desk and your pup, xv.

jodie nicholson said...

I took a photo of just a small portion of my post-Christmas bombsite and could only share it with a handful of friends. Trust me, your room looks like a minimalist display home compared to the horror I faced the other day.
Some days, I wish I sold PDF tutorials or something...

Country Girl said...

What!! You have a border collie! This is excellent.

Lovely blog you have here. Thanks for stopping by mine. I am remiss in getting out and about, so please forgive me.

Ms Dragonfly said...

sharon told me to check out your work space so i know i am not alone! i've moved my art space downstairs in the middle of my living area on what was our dinning table!
