I cannot believe that twelve weeks have passed since the start of the Home Organization Challenge. The final room is my sewing studio, and this past week I was so happy to organize a few things that really needed my attention. I teach sewing classes in my studio, so I vacuum on a daily basis and I am always mindful of putting things in place at the end of the day. However, there were a few things that I have been neglecting. I have also found myself rushing to clean up before my classes and by the end of the week things were a mess.
Over the past few months I have made a few small changes to the room that have made a big difference for keeping things organized. I found that I use my pegboard a lot and the beautiful pattern storage boxes I found earlier in the year have been great for storing the patterns I use for my classes. I also bought plastic bins for my student projects and I find they are great for keeping things separate and within easy reach. The big challenge was dealing with the overflow of fabric and my new fabric boards were really helpful. The boards are easy to make and have been great for folding the over abundance of fabric.
I have a few creative touches that I will like to add to the studio, so I also used this past week to think through some of my ideas. I have a few unfinished projects such as finishing painting the wardrobe and making new draperies. I hope to get my projects done in the next few weeks.
It has been a great time for me, and I hope that it has been helpful to you as well. I will be doing a final round up of the challenge next week, so visit again. Thank you for joining.
