Are You a Messy Crafter or an Organized One?
Are you the type to never be able to see the top of your work area? Is it covered in glitter, papers and glue? Or are you the type to keep everything neat and tidy? Which way is better? Can you be a little bit of both?
I like what you call organized chaos. It always seems like when I clean up the area I lose things. That being said I lose my keys everyday if I don't put my keys back into the same spot. It's a constant battle every freaking day.
My office right now? It’s a right off, and that is not an exaggeration. It’s not like I want it to be like this. It’s just that the office is not a priority to be fixed at the moment. So I refuse to unpack my boxes, which means I can’t find jack squat at the moment.
So let's look at the Pros and Cons of both!
Messy- Messy people are said to very creative people. They have a wide range of interests and they can jump from one project to another. They think outside the box and have the need to create lots of different projects.
Messy people tend to be a bit more spontaneous, flying by the seat of their pants. They tend to be more flexible and they don't get anxious over the small stuff. This is because they thrive in chaos.
Organized- Organized people want things to look perfect. There is nothing wrong with that. They can come up with simple solutions to keeping things organized and still make it look pretty all at the same time.
They plan out their projects ahead of time. They focus their energy on completing them on time and in an orderly fashion They tend to finish one project before moving on to the next.
Messy- It's hard to find work space when everything is everywhere. This is especially true in a small space. There is always the possibility of breaking things as well.
Organized- Because most organized people plan out their day to day activities it is hard for them to go with the flow. You need to schedule time with them in advance because they plan far in advance. They need order so that they can survive. It is not necessarily a bad thing. It is nice to have a little organization every now and again.
Sometimes you can be a bit of both. I know I am organized when it comes to planning. I love to plan out my projects. I am definitely not when it comes to my craft space. It's a struggle. What about you? Are you organized or messy?
