When considering your workspace, here’s rule #1 ...
If it feels right to you, it's right!
End of Rules.
When we moved to Atlanta from St. Louis at the end of 2003, I left behind a house with enough storage space to comfortably store three decades of collectibles gathered by a certified 'Collectoholic' . . . that would be yours truly! More on my favorite collection at a later date . . .
I had started creating jewelry and selling locally about a year earlier, but had no special place to work. I used the kitchen table and would drag out all my tools and supplies each time I went to work, and got into the habit of cleaning everything up when I finished for the day. What was I thinking? Who needs a kitchen table, anyhow?
Well, old habits die hard, and even though I now have an entire second bedroom in the apartment for my office/workspace I still clean up at the end of a day I've spent creating jewelry for my Shop on Etsy.
The cubicles stay on the messy side until I get sick of looking at it, but for the most part there's
a place for everything, and yada, yada, yada.
PS All this storage space courtesy of my favorite Collection that is packed up and stored for the time being.
