Getting Organized, Everything in it's place

My space that I live in is small. Thankfully, it's an apartment, so it's cheap, and it's temporary. But it's small. I've taken over one section of the living room and one couch with my papers, my paper cutter, my cutting mat, my finished journals, my packaging supplies. Yesterday, a table was moved in for me and put over the coffee table. Strangely enough, it works.

So all my supplies are nicely arranged on the table, with finished journals in a box, and packaging supplies on the coffee table. It's a really nice feeling to have it all organized and I feel that all of a sudden even my brain is less cluttered!
I have my projects in progress in one section, so I can see what I need to finish. By the end of the day tomorrow, I should have several journals ready to list! Including one new design that was a special order! If it works the way I envision, I'll be making more to list!
It's amazing how change can stimulate action. Thankfully this is change for the better. I've had a rough week, and getting my supplies organized really helped me to come up out of the rut. This organization has been a long time coming. A really long time. And since I didn't even have to move a table, it was so easy!!
I stated the other day, in the Etsy forum, that my dream is to make my business flow.... from the conception of the idea, all the way through to packaging. To make it easier on me to be able to create, and run my business, and not freak out when I have a dozen sales to ship out. (It could happen!!! Actually, two days ago, I had 5 items ordered in one day!) And now it's coming to fruition.

Sometimes, life is good. Sometimes even when it's not, something small can happen to make it all worthwhile.

Isn't it amazing how much better it makes you feel to be organized? Keep at it :-) By the time the holiday rush comes this year, you'll be an old pro and 15 orders in a day will be a breeze.
