Inspired to Organize

I have quite a bit of storage in my house.We built this house 4 years ago, and I made sure to add as many nooks, cubbies, and drawers as possible. However, my design space is seriously lacking.

When I moved here, I was in a jewelry-making funk. Creating jewelry had started off as something fun to do on the side, and quickly became something that occupied much of my time – I stopped loving it, and would go for months without making a thing. My tools, stones, beads, and findings got shoved in a bag and found a home under the sink in the laundry room.

I’ve fallen in love with the craft again, but since I’ve occupied all available storage space, my jewelry bag still lives in its tiny spot. Let me tell you, it’s a big, fat pain to haul it all out and dig through it every time I’m in the mood to design.

So I’ve been dreaming…

I’m dreaming of a space where everything is at the ready, and easy to see.

I’m dreaming of little containers that are as pretty as they are functional.

I’m dreaming of a little spot that I can call my own.

It’s time to turn those dreams into reality. Time to stop pondering and get to planning. By the end of the summer, my goal is to get it all done – I’ll be sure to share the pics with you as soon as my spot is ready to go!

What have you been dreaming about? Is it time to wake up and make it happen? I’d love to hear all about it!

  • A few weeks ago I hosted a wine tasting party for a group of ladies I’m honored to know.  This group gathers together to laugh, love on each other and most importantly raise money for women’s education.  We are all apart of the PEO sisterhood. My husband’s office is the perfect place to host this event.… [Continue Reading]

  • As you know from this post, I’m homeless.  Well… not technically homeless… but kinda!  We sold our house too quickly {good problem to have I suppose}.  But while we wait for our new construction, it leaves my fab family of five without a home base to call our own for a few months.  If you know… [Continue Reading]

  • Darcy Markus decided to close her shop, Maison Galleria, because she wanted to spend more time with her baby AND do more boutique events.

  2. Good for you for having big dreams and making them happen! Being organized really makes such a huge difference :) Stopping by from Gussy!

  12. I wish I was more organized! :( It would be so helpful Im sure. And I have a “craft room” but I’m usually in such a rush to finish what Im doing that I just end up leaving the supplies out and they stay there. I can’t wait to see what you decide to do! :)
