And to wrap up the week, some tips from Robyn for maintaining your newly organised space -
1Always pack items away into their designated homes after each of your sessions.
You’ll be able to pick up where you left off more efficiently and with a fresh perspective.
2Never have any more than two projects on the go at any given time. Complete one before taking on another.
3Only purchase items on a need to use basis. Crafters often stockpile ‘maybe’ items because they were a bargain and relevant to their current needs. Too often I organise craft spaces that are not in line with ‘present time’ and exhibit many fad projects which did not maintain the clients interests, and can be found at the back of the cupboard taking up valuable space. I find that this often deters people from working on or completing projects as it can all become a it daunting.
4Simplify your space, by simplifying your choices.
Having too many options and unfinished projects means more storage needs and the potential of never completing anything. The reward of completion is the most satisfying, don’t rob yourself of the accolades.
