My studio takes but a week to look like a war zone and it usually stays that way for months. I write and create art in this room; household bills and receipts gather on my desk, art supplies and debris lands on my work table. Boxes get shifted around, plants gather, cats play with strands of yarn and before you know it the room is nothing but one big obstacle course. Every 6 months or so I get fed up and have to psych myself up for hours of cleaning and rearranging. It takes me a full 2 days to get the room civilized. The funny part is, I couldn't find things before the clean-up, and I can't find things after, but at least it looks better.
