Starting the year off with a clean organized space allows for you to focus on your art, business or hobby, without the worry of uninspired space.
As you clean, take advantage of cleared space by considering how you can rearrange large work surfaces. For example, in Valerie's workshop she had two desks for making jewelry. One desk was under utilized which made it easier for me to convince her to eliminate it all together.
Freeing up floor space allows for greater flow and function. In Valerie's case, eliminating the extra desk, moving the existing photo station, and moving the computer desk created better flow throughout her workshop.
Newly designated areas for mailing, business duties, and sewing maximized the functionality of her space by making them all within arms reach.
Highly functional spaces start with clean surfaces, though keeping the surfaces clean is usually the problem. Using desk top organizers will help, but creating a habit of putting things away is even better.
1. - Look around your space and consider the level of usage for each piece. If you have under utilized furniture, let it go. Another persons junk is someone else's treasure.
2. - Consider your daily activities when designating the location of supplies or items you use regularly.
3. Use your support person by asking them to look at your space and help you decide where large items can be moved -another person can add a fresh perspective
