Did you get your books and magazines under control last week?
I didn’t. Even though I got rid of several, and put away ones I want to keep, I still have more . . . ugh! I’ll keep working on this one over time, too. I will win this battle!
But for now, it’s on to the next task. This week, I’m leaving it sort of open to your own discretion. I want you to:
That something is going to be different for each one of us, so you have to do a bit of thinking and decide what one thing about your studio space is bothering you the most by being disorganized right now . . . and DO that thing.
You will feel so much better afterwards, when that nagging feeling is gone, and you can breathe a sigh of relief for having it done and off your plate. You’ll feel a bit more free and hopefully, it will boost your creativity and productivity.
While I have no pictures of mine, I know what mine is. It’s my spare room upstairs. The upstairs of our house is four empty bedrooms that I’m in the process of converting into a full studio. Half of it is done (meaning 2 rooms are finished and being used), the third one is being worked on, but the fourth one — uff! — it’s a complete disaster.
I’m using it as storage right now, until I get the third room finished; then all my stuff will finally once and for all have a rightful place (or be gone). But the storage method I’ve used up till now is “stand at the door and pitch more stuff into the room as far as I can chuck it”. Not a good system.
I started working in there last week, and realized that this would be a good organizing task for me to continue with this week. And then I began to wonder if I’m alone . . . or do you have a particular area that needs help, too? While yours is probably not as bad as mine, if there’s a catch-all spot you have that’s really bugging you, this is the week to address it.
I’m interested in hearing what sorts of spaces/areas/piles you will all be working on this week! Ready. Set. Go!
