Improving Where you Create...
I have been off my blog for way longer than I expected...I guess my online business
overcame my time to keep it going since it has been really busy the past few months...( not that I am complaining, mind you!)
Ar any rate, I have done some vast improving in my business and here are just a few simple ways I have done so:
A. Got my own work room- yes, no more working at the dining room table and having to clear everything off for dinner time- I really think if you want to create well, you have to be glad where you are working... now I have a 6 foot long folding work table so I can spread all my stuff out within convenient reach...Hurray!
B. Clear, multi drawer units and containers- no more scrounging through cardboard boxes on the floor looking for that "essence of fine
mist green" crushed velvet fabric....or losing that exquisite bauble that would have been the perfect touch to the finished creation of King Louis the 17th on his 63rd birthday...
C. Folders and organizers for all receipts and lightbox backgrounds- a real nice timesaver for hunting up just what I need
That is about it for now- I can't tell you how much easier things have been with just a few simple changes. My work is much more efficient, and I enjoy where my location is- so my creativity isn't as squelched! Which, if I may add, has increased now that I also keep a full ideas journal for any thoughts of new ideas for me to work on- and I have a daily planner of what I am going to create for the upcoming weeks each day...it really helps when I am stymied for what to do that day. (It's kind of like a menu plan only it's about art work...:)
If you are thinking about getting organized to better your craft, I say do it!
You won't believe the difference it will make in more ways then one!
