To optimize your time
You will begin to see a great improvement in your production time when all of your supplies have a home. Giving your supplies a specific place to “live” will allow you to know, without hesitation, where the products you are looking for are placed. Selecting clear storage containers can help optimize your time even more. Being able to see through the containers to know exactly what products are where can cut your search time in half! Implementing shelves is also a great tool to perfect your space, and keep it organized.
To enjoy your hobby
Get back to the basics! Remember why you started to craft in the first place. Most likely, it was a great escape from your daily responsibilities, somewhere you could find peace and joy, somewhere to remember the delights in life! If you enter your space and it is full of clutter and mess it may not be the calmness you remember. Once you have a corner that has organized storage bins and a nice clean space to work with, there will definitely be an increase in your use of it.
To relieve anxiety
Your environment has a direct impact on how you feel. When your space is a mess, you can feel as if your life is a mess. It may even give the feeling of being out of control. Art should be filling your life with positivity. Creativity can even be considered a form of therapy, and a way to help calm your mind. A form many often choose to utilize. The many colors can help you explore the various avenues of your imagination. Having an organized space gives you a great place to begin. An easy way to go about tackling this clutter-caused-anxiety is looking at one section at a time. If you focus on just organizing your sewing supplies or paintbrushes, you can give yourself little wins while you clean.
