Messy Me!

There are two kinds of decorators.  Neat and organized or messy, like me.  I am SOOOOOOO messy I might even qualify for an award! Before every new project I make sure my kitchen is completely clean. By the way, in Texas, even the television is friendly…

And then I do this…

And this…

I’m not sure when I decided empty bottles should be flower nail holders, or my Nanny’s potholder an icing rag.

This sad thing is, this could all be prevented by simply laying down a vinyl tablecloth.  Yet somehow it doesn’t feel like I’ve worked unless I sling a little icing around.  I think I may need a 12 step program.

So there you have it.  The true story of how I can make a 360 degree kitchen mess {as in you can turn a full circle and find something on every single surface}.

Sometimes even my dining room isn’t immune.

Anyone want to guess how I am spending MY Saturday?

So, how do you work?  Are you messy {like me} or neat and organized?  You’ve seen my workspace, now it’s your turn.  Show me if you dare!

PS-You don’t need a blog to link up.  Facebook and Flickr links work too!

PPS-My husband *may* have cleaned up this mess which was made for “blogging purposes”.

    I used to decorate cookies with melted chocolate & confectionary coating. Then I took a Level 1 Wilton class just to learn more about piping and wound up making 25 pounds of buttercream icing for the 3 of us who took the class together. The clean up for RI is a breeze next to the mess of the other two! It love cleaning up when there’s no cocoa butter or Crisco involved. Almost magical the way RI disappears! The only part I dread is putting away of the clean tools & supplies properly so I can find them easily when the next project begins!

    Oh my goodness thank you, my kitchen looks exactly the same after even a small project and I was beginning to think it was just me. I always bug my husband for being so messy when he cooks (a rare occasion indeed), but oh my goodness can I make a world class mess when I bake!

    In looking at your post on being “messy”, I noticed your “leftover icing” bottles where the the liquid had separated somewhat from the sugar. Can you tell me how you remix? I have tried using a butter knife and stirring the icing inside the bottles and I have tried to roll/shake the bottles. Both methods have flaws. I cannot seem to get the mixture to be fully mixed. Any suggestions?
