I don't know about you, but my physical creative space competes with a lot of other needs in our house, like a place to eat, a place to cook, a place to use the computer, a place to put all the children's school gear when they come home...and more. With three children (and all of their stuff) space is a hot commodity in our house.
I have been trying to come up with an idea to make better use of the space we have and how I am able to organize my creative stuff. On a recent trip to IKEA I purchased some shelves (EXPEDIT) and some boxes (KASSETT). I thought I had an idea of how to use it in my space, but it just wasn't working. And so the shelves, in their box, just sat in the middle of my kitchen for 2 MONTHS (too heavy to move out to the shed).
And then last Wednesday my friend Kate came to the rescue and said what about putting the shelves here?As soon as she said it, I knew it would work. So with a little girl power over the weekend, we put the shelves and the boxes together and I began to move stuff into the shelves. I can't tell you what difference it makes being able to get to things easily and to have most of them in one central place. You will note, however, that a couple of spaces have been taken over by my youngest and middle daughter - ah, that will have to change:)
