A spurt of organizing!

by mary April 15, 2014

I love making jewelry, but not so much cleaning up afterward or organizing my work space.  As a result, my work station can get out of hand at times!  Most recently, I've been busy working on several custom orders as well as new pieces for the website, plus have picked up some fun lots of chain broken jewelry.  After having trouble locating the tools & supplies I needed, I decided yesterday that it had finally gotten to the point where I had to get serious about putting things away & organizing!  Here's a look at the "before" picture . . . not so pretty . . .


After several hours yesterday & another hour or so this morning, here a look at the "after" -- I can actually see my work bench & have my most frequently used tools back where they are supposed to be for easy accessibility!

And a great side benefit was that, as I was putting things away, I found several cool pieces that are just begging to be made into necklaces, bracelets & earrings!

Now, if I can just keep my work space this organized for awhile!
