A month after I shot my candid, ridiculously unorganized, apartment studio last spring, my husband and I started to look for our first house. So, my organization vacation was a great opportunity to purge all the things I wasn’t using, and organize all my beads. I was grateful for the head start, and now that they drywall is patched and the everything is labeled, I am happy to show you the results.
I could never have done this without my class with Gayle Goddard, the Clutter Fairy for 2 reasons:
- I’m a free-spirit, and I like the idea of whirlwind bouts of art-making. Problems arose when I couldn’t find anything and had no room for new supplies. Gayle helped me realize how much more creative and productive I can be if I placed a few limits on my whirlwind. Now, my organized materials surround and inspire me, and being in my studio beading makes me happy and not stressed.
- Even with my realization, I needed a plan of attack. When I look at my before video, I cringe to think how much worse it could have gotten because I didn’t know where to start. Gayle showed me step by step how to kill my closet clutter and get organized. Her philosophy about organizing beads and art supplies helps it stay that way.
Tomorrow on the podcast, Gayle and I discuss how she started her business, why it’s important to be organized, more about her philosophy, and our upcoming online class: Organizing your Bead Space for a Creative Explosion. Stay tuned for more organizing goodness!
