Today marks the final day to do the assignment for Week 1 of the Get Organized Challenge with Tiffany Spaulding over at TheScrapRack. Although Tiffany sells The Scrap Rack, she doesn't say you HAVE to use her product. She is all about EDUCATION. She truly wants everyone to be organized and ENJOY their CREATIVE JOURNEY.
I met Tiffany over ten years ago when her system was still just breaking the market. I used her 4-system concept to organize my tools and supplies when we made the move from IL to MO. And I've taken her class three times. But something is different this time...
I am DOING the assignments. I am DOING the steps to finally put my studio back to the way things were before I began sharing the space with my daughter when she moved back home with my first grandchild. Something about 'sharing' that space kind of sucked the creative energy right out of the space. I'm looking forward to putting things back to rights and doing a thorough sage cleansing to restore balance and positive energy again.
So why do I need this Get Organized Challenge? Because my ACTUAL creative space measures approx. 75 square feet. That is the space that includes the work table, SU area and the upcycled entertainment center. I am expanding that work area a bit by relocating my Die Cutting area as you'll see in the following slide show. I'm shuddering as I share this but this is part of the journey I have embarked on:
So with these pictures out for all the world to see, let's move on to Week 2. We're going to be talking PAPER. Thankfully, mine is pretty much where it goes. There will be some minor changes at the end of the course when I add my very own SCRAP RACK!
