Well, I'm finally finished setting up my studio and now I can get back to work creating my giftware again! It's amazing the amount of tools and supplies a person can accumulate over the course of 14 years of operating a business. Yes, I do have a LOT of stuff, and I couldn't get everything into my new studio because it's actually a smaller space than I had before, but I think I did a pretty good job. It's still a work in progress though and as I work in there I'll move things around if I need to. And even if I don't really need to, I know I will move it around anyway because I like change!
Now that I've gotten to this point, there is still work to do. There are boxes to re-label and new stock lists to create. And then there's the dreaded inventory to take - but at least I know where everything is now! Hey, I even found things I forgot I had, so even though it's been a lot of work moving all this stuff, it's been helpful too. Nothing like a move to make you get organized!
Trying to fit all this stuff into a smaller workspace was a challenge. Some of the storage items I've used in the past just wouldn't work in here, so I had to improvise. That's probably what took the longest getting this space set up - having to keep changing things around because my original set up idea had to be modified a few times. I even changed rooms after I got started because this room was a bit larger! Ugh! Now that I've finished it I think this will work out good for now though, but I guess time will tell!
