I have been busy cleaning and making my studio more effective for my business. I created this quite easily with supplies I had on had except for the peg board ( which was $5).
1) I found a dyi similar to this on Pinterest.
2) I measured and cut the pegboard.
3) then I used small eye hooks and picture hanging wire to hang the brown paper. (I use this when I am shipping off an order from my Etsy store. )
4) I used the same eye hooks and picture wire on the back to hang it on the wall.
5) I added the baskets to hold the stamps I use.
Note: I want to paint the pegboard white and other things that I use to ship items on the board. I am happy with it for now. Now on to more organizing. Have a great day.

DYI Organizing boxes
I used these three ideas and altered them to meet my needs. A great source is Youtube but also Pinterest. Happy Organizing.

- First - you need a label maker (so you can see where everything is at a glance)
- Second- you need boxes of multiple sizes (shoe boxes work great and they are readily available)
- Third - you have to have a trash can available and (don't be afraid to use it)
- Fourth - Use big boxes to organize different sections (One box for art supplies, one box for fabric, one for beads)
- Fifth and Final - you should try to have a sense of humor and patience - (it will all work out in the end)
Cleaning / Organizing Grid
Ok now that we did a quick list of the things you need you need to decide how to attack the problem.
Some people like list and I am one of them but when I am organizing I use a grid system along with list and I keep a handy dandy notebook (can you tell I have kids) at hand. That way I can write down what I need to get to help me and make list for each quadrant.

I think Organizing your home, time and life is really about a frame of mind. It takes determination to make chaos have order. With three kids -believe me I know. These are a few of my favorite quotes of the day.
Organization isn't about perfection it's about efficiency, reducing stress, & clutter, saving time & money & improving your overall quality of life. -- Christina Scalise
Organizing is really just one big game of Tetris. -- Alejandra
For ever minute spent organizing, an hour is earned. -- Benjamin Franklin
