Day Five, 4 PM

posted in: Studio/Organizing | 2
It’s 4 PM on Day Five of my project to clean up my studio, and I’m declaring victory! The floor is clear. The table is cleaned off. Stuff is put back where it belongs. Success!

Truthfully, this is really just phase one, but you have to celebrate small victories, right? For me, it’s a major accomplishment to be able to easily walk all the way back to where my sewing machine is without having to step over stuff and squeeze around obstacles! It’s such a joy to see that 8 foot stretch of white table top! Sorry, there’s no “before” picture of that because I literally could not stand in the same spot before I started cleaning.

My daughter, Bethany, even vacuumed for me. When was the last time it was vaccumed? I can’t remember.

Phase Two will have to involve opening drawers and cabinets and thinning out stuff. I’ll need to go through the bookcases and also organize the boxes above the cabinets. I have an idea for a way to organize my thread, but it will require enlisting my sweet son-in-law to use his power tools. (Are you listening, Eric?)

But I’m thrilled with the progress that has been made and I’m satisfied to stop for the day.

    Your space looks huge and well organized, though I would love if had bigger pictures on your site.

      I’ll see what I can do 🙂

      Also, anytime you hover your mouse over a picture and the arrow turns into a pointing hand, then you can click on the picture and it will get bigger. So, larger pictures are often nested behind smaller ones.
