Starting out organizing in 2009

I tend to work best & have more creativeness when there is a big pile of jewelry and rhinestone pieces at my fingertips... but, I am going to try this... "organizing thing". We're getting ready for Disney (leaving next Friday - at 3 am - hopefully the kids will sleep during some of the 11 hour trip - ah, who am I kidding??) ~ and so I am trying to get organized for it all, including other parts of my house. I love organizing (when I am in the mood :-), if it would only just stay that way. Here are some pictures of the "before" ~ in my jewelry area:

tah dah..... here are some "after" pictures:

what is it about getting more and more of these beautiful things? I just love them. How could you not love it?! Now, if only I was off to create more pieces of jewelry with these beautiful jewels... but I'm off to Nordstrom to use my gift certificate my husband gave me for Christmas... I love Nordstrom!! yummy ... I know exactly what I want... I'll show you that later!

I understand completely what you are talking about. I make jewelry, and if I am not organized, I would go crazy! I just went through an organization frenzy last night, as I went to a gem and mineral show and came home with tons of new stuff. Before I could do anything, I had to find a home for everything I bought and that lead to straightening up everthing! Have fun in Disney!

I also know what you mean. When I bought my last storage container, someone told me "if you would make more jewelry, you would not have to buy storage containers to store the supplies". I am also into miniatures, so am trying to get those more organized, etc. Have a great trip.

Just found your blog from Beth's Award page - congratulations! I'm feeling a bit unworthy to be in your company but aw heck, you'll never see what MY place looks like! I'll just hide behind the cyberclutter! Your jewelry is beautiful!

I LOVE it!!!

I like organizing when little hands aren't reaching & grabbing for MY things... LOL

I think me & the princess will do some of this organizing... just as soon as I get off of the 'puter.. LOL

Thanks for the inspiration. As cool as your 1st photos are.. I bet the organized version is much more productive!

Hello Lori! I wonder when I'll get a chance to see you again... I've been looking for a faux saphire earrings, do you have anything like it? I see you have lots of blues in the box and I actually saw one that I love it!! Thank you!!
