i have been organizing


And, it feels good. I have been busy reorganizing my workspace.
Rhinestones have become a huge part of my jewelry designs. I have had no time to really organize them like I've wanted. They have simply been stashed in every available open space. Since the beginning of this new year, I have been attempting to organize our office/my workspace. Since this is where I can be found almost every waking hour I'm home, I needed to do it. Disorganization drives me crazy. Really, it does!
This past year, while in San Antonio, my daughter and I had each purchased a jewelry organizer from The Container Store. It seemed like a great idea to use for storing my personal jewelry. But once home, I stashed it away in my closet, waiting to use it ~ someday. This past weekend I pulled it out, and hung it from the closet door in our office/my workspace. I used it to organize my vintage finds and rhinestones jewelry. All of which has been accumulated the last several months. It allows me to see everything I have. I really like it!

I also completed one piece of a collaboration this weekend~using some vintage rhinestones of course! Now, that really feels good!

Hi Diane -

It always feels good to organize. I always find little "goodies" that I had forgotten about, and get lots of new and inspiring ideas as I go.

Good for you! (want to come over & do my workshop now?)

It looks great! I need something like that for my suppliies. i'm an addict when it comes to buying them, and they are everywhere. I definitely need to follow your lead and organize better!

I know exactly how you feel about liking things to be organized. In fact that is one of the things on my "to do" list today is to straighten up my studio. Love your new pieces and using the jewelry organizer is a great idea. Take care

FABULOUS! In my opinion, it's a work of art to just figure out alternative uses for items. You actually used that jewelry organizer for *jewels*, but it doesn't have to be ...
When's our next trip to The Container Store? =)
