Getting Organized: My Everlasting Struggle

I love window shopping at places like Ikea, Office Max, and the Container Store. Why? Because I like to dream about how to furnish and organize my dream studio/office. But it's only been dreams. I want to be organized. I cringe when I look at my room and my desk at work. I've let everything fall to pieces. But all my recent readings on small businesses and reading everyone's blogs... well... I'm starting to get organized again.

Even just the small steps I've taken so far have made making jewelry easier.

Look at that box! That makes me INSANELY happy. I have a WHOLE BOX full of beautiful lucite flowers... most of which are from my order which I received yesterday. I just love looking at it and touching all the flowers. I know. Strange. But, oh gosh, I think they're just delicious and having them organized makes it so much easier to look at and admire them :P

I got the box from the Container Store. I have maybe 3 or 4 of these compartment boxes and 2 single boxes. This is the first one I've utilized. See, I really WANT to be organized, but I'm just lazy.

Now, my "studio" is mobile (everything I need to make jewelry fits in a lovely backpack) but if and when I have my own studio space, I'll probably want to store my beads in something like this-

My tools aren't the only things I need to organize. My time. My money. My life. This is just the first step. YAY!

Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!
