|Now I am Ready for any Design Emergency!|
This is the curse of a creative person, I tend to be not the most organized. (although I can organize for OTHER people.) I mean I have my processes, and I can usually find things when they go missing, and I, at least, have a folder for receipts and business papers, thank goodness for quickbooks and online banking! But seriously, I have a vision of order NOT chaos.
Yesterday, I went on a quest for some organization. For family AND business. And I didn't set my goals too high, I mean who wants to be disappointed by the end of the day when nothing is actually organized and it is all still a mess. So my goal was to get 2 bags for business/styling stuff. Sort through my 10 bags of stuff, and consolidate! I found my inspiration from Heather Bullard here...simple enough. A place for my swatchbooks, measuring tape, notebooks, pencils, camera, and important papers...all in one little bag.
|I keep important information on little notecards that is filed away in this little box. |
(kind of like recipe cards, but they are design cards with measurements etc.)
AND I have another cool canvas bag for all of my client fabric samples(which I keep in zip lock bags) magazines that I am using, etc.
|I kind of really love this bag!|
Since I am a immediate satisfaction girl, I wanted the Canvas Riggers Bag from Harbor Freight just like hers...I showed my husband and he said "Oh, there is a Harbor Freight in town!" Yes!!!! A 40 minute drive with the kids and I had my Riggers Bag ($14.99) and the other canvas bag ($13.99). I couldn't wait the 2 days for shipping, I wanted organization and I wanted it NOW! AND there was a Goodwill right next to the shop where I HAD to stop and I found a something to organize my Child's life as well....a place for the dolls....
|A fun red retro suitcase for the dolls. Her new Color scheme in the room is pink and red so it fits perfectly....|
And I love the name Lady Baltimore!
So, ya'll I am set and ready! If you call I I will be out the door in a flash with my little tool bag. If you need that collected wall designed, consider it done! If you need a paint color consultation I know where the swatches are! No more looking for all of the tools I need! YAY! Business is looking better already....now if I could only get that Enormous Inspiration Board created, and collect all of my thoughts, I would be golden...
