It’s been a fun kick in the butt to get my studio clean and organized! It had gotten just a bit out of hand because of some big projects I’ve been working on. Those of you that know me well – know that clutter makes me pretty anxious. Everything needs its own place – and it needs to live there when not in use.
When Cheryl from Muppin.com put out the word that she was organizing a Spring Clean Your Studio Blog Hop – I knew that was just what I needed to get back on track. Our assignment was to take some “before” pictures – then clean and organize and take some after pictures. Challenge accepted. The pictures below are before I got busy.
It didn’t take me too long to get it cleaned up, once I got busy and focused on it. As you can see from the pictures – I have lots of cupboard storage space – and a good amount of counter space for such a small room.
So many bonuses with this 8′ – 13′ space! It’s in a building separate from our house so I can “go to work” and come home and leave it behind when I’m done. I have a bathroom a couple of steps away through the pocket door at the far end of the room. And I have a beautiful view of our backyard and the house.
Here are the “after” pictures – not a huge change but it sure feels a lot better to me.
So much better! Now I’ve got a free motion practice quilt ready to load onto my new Cutie frame and the counters are all clear. It really helps my head – and my creativity level to have everything – except what I’m working on – put away. If too many things are out – I get distracted and eventually I get stuck. better for me to put it all away behind closed doors.
Everyone has a different style of working – and what organization means to them. Be sure to check out the other participating Spring Clean Your Studio Participants. You may get some organization ideas for your own sewing space.
