All my craft desks are always crowded. Even when I crafted on my kitchen table and had to tidy it every time my materials and tools were never neatly arranged. What I need to grab is always at the bottom of a pile or / and tends to roll across the surface and fall on the floor.
The photo shows the corner of my polymer clay desk - where I also block crochet work and assemble beadwork so I always have to move different materials and I am quite useless at storage that makes sense. I always look for something.
But the worst of all is dust - as I don't have a lot of time to create everything has to be dusted whenever I start a new project.
