One Shelf at a Time: Clear
Meanwhile, I have an idea of what was not working and I have solutions that may fix it. I will need to live with this change for a little while to see how it works. I also need to keep to certain rules. This is my first ever dedicated scrap space. It's an odd little spot in a closet. Weird, but for whatever reason, the people who lived here prior to us felt the need to put a built in desk in the walk in closet. I do have a nice view out of the closet's french door( yes, more weirdness) and can see the whole room plus out of a window. I digress though... My space is small and it is finite. Therefore, I need to choose what comes into it very wisely. This also means using up more of what I have on hand which makes me feel good anyway.
I have made some interesting discoveries about the way I store things. I need to see them or have easy access to use them and properly place them back. I like the look of glass jars but really don't like dusting them. This may sound simple, but knowing these things will help me direct my organizational budget and the choices I make in the future. If you find you are struggling with your creative space, ask yourself what you like and don't like about each separate set of materials. From pens to stamps, each one may be stored or used differently depending upon your style. Knowing what you like and don't like will help you make needed changes. You will find that having a plan also will help you make due with your current solution while you wait to make those changes happen.
