creative space revamp

here's a before and after view of my 5-hour creative space revamp today. i've been envying other creative spaces over the past week or so, i took advantage of some open space today and reorganized my armoire. inside you'll find:

notecards, checkbooks, journals, file folders, writing tools, paperclips, paint, decoratve paper, stamps, collage materials, double sided tape, glue sticks, index cards, old planner pads.

simple keys to organizing:
  • carve out ample open space to play
  • have music playing and tea nearby
  • pull everything out and sort into similar piles (ex. books, pens, file folders, etc. together)
  • have a big trash bin nearby and a bin for passing along to pals
  • begin to put items back in a strategic manner
  • bask in a job well done

tips and more tips on organizing your creative space. happy organizing. happy creating. now let's create in peace sans clutter!

It is official...I need to get an armoire. I seem to always have to go all over the house for my supplies, because I don't have one place to put everything...I have been using a roller craft big (kind of large) but I have to keep it on my deck which is on the other side of the house from where I do my crafts...armoire is now on my list of things to get...thanks Kimberly! :)

Nice work Kimberly, it looks fab! Isn't it so much more appealing to use your materials when they are easy to see and get to? I had let my jewelry and art materials get out of hand so I had a good tidy up this Saturday too, and have been much more creative and productive as a result!
