Organization isn't about perfection it's about efficiency, reducing stress, & clutter, saving time & money & improving your overall quality of life. -- Christina Scalise

Key Item for Organizing: trash can

Organizing : Key Item
 
 
 

You can click on the image on the sidebar to go to amazon link.


This may seem funny and of course it is common sense to have one. But you will need one while organizing and it is always good to have close.

 In this step you want to have your trash can, and a line of boxes. Each with a name on them. Give away, fabric, paints, books, etc.


So my suggestion is to go through everything, and find it a permanent home. It will make your projects go faster if you know where things are. Good luck



Here are some pictures of this concept. :D

Organizing Art Studio - Key Item - Boxes





Organizing : Key Item
 
 
 

You can click on the image on the sidebar to go to amazon link.


Key Items : Boxes of Multiple Sizes

I use 12 quart plastic boxes for storage in my art studio.

 I label each one and it keeps me organized.


You should also gather other types of boxes:

        shoe boxes
        shipping boxes
        food boxes (cereal, cracker, etc)

These will be the beginning of your organization system. My suggestion is to also get shipping tape, decorative duck tape, and get ready to use your label maker.



Here are some pictures of my boxes in my studio. :D

This is the label maker that I have and I will say that I love it.

 It makes me happy to see the labels in my studio and home.

It makes life easier, especially with kids.

So my suggestion is to get a label maker and this is a great one to start with. I have had mine for years.



Here are some pictures of my labeled studio. :D

SHOUT OUT TO ALL THE LIBRARIANS IN THE WORLD!!

This is my first blog post for the librarians and of course it has to be a thank you. I have always had a passion for books and I think I can thank the librarians of my past, present and future for supplying my habit.

I think the librarians are what make the libraries what they are. I have met some great, warm and helpful librarians and I could sit the whole day curled in the corner of the library with a book. They fill the spaces between the books with happiness.

Thank you.

So my question to the librarians is what types of things would you love to read about? What kind of posts interest you? Comment and let me know, I would love to hear from you.

Featured place - Antelope Canyon, USA


picture from classic-thunderbird-club.com

I think that there are a lot of places on Earth that still have magic and this place seems to be one of them. The colors and the flow of the Earth are a beautiful thing. If you search for fairies I wonder if they hide in the shadows of this magical realm. A place to spend time at added to the list.
