Completion! Project Home Office/Craft Storage Organization~Step Three

Craft Supply Closet Organization

From North of the Boulevard~

The implementation step of my three steps to reaching a goal is obviously the most daunting, but once the goal has been met, it's definitely worth it! I set out to reorganize my home office and turn a messy closet into a craft supply storage space. I had to do a thorough job of sorting, relocating and discarding. The catch all closet is now a functional craft supply storage closet and I could not be happier with the results.

Adding Some Decorative Touches to Craft Supply Space

Decorative Accents for Craft Closet


I've been busy this week sorting through things my home office/craft supply closet. I managed to clear out the entire closet. While reorganizing my craft supply closet, I decided I wanted to create some decorative holders for various things. I didn't want to spend any money though.  The best part is that I had all of the items I needed on hand.

That's A Lot of Stuff! Project Home Office/Craft Storage Organization~Step Two

Office reorganization

From North of the Boulevard~

The quest for a more organized home office/crafting space continued today. After I finished with Step One yesterday, I was ready to tackle the piles of stuff that I had moved out of the closet, drawers and shelves. It's a good thing I have a pretty large landing just outside of the office door! Putting Step Two into action was a pretty big task.

What's Behind the Door? Project Home Office/Craft Storage Organization~Step One

Home Office Organization Project

From North of the Boulevard~

What's behind the door? Sometimes, it's good to just shut the door and forget about what's inside. That only works for so long though and then it's time to do something about what's behind that closed door! One of my  early goals for this year is to reorganize my home office/craft storage room. So, I've taken the plunge.

Goal Setting For The New Year

Goal Setting Plan

From North of the Boulevard~

Do you make resolutions for the New Year?  I think it's a better idea for me to simply be mindful of changes that I need and want to make rather than saying "I resolve to..." The new year is a great time to do some self evaluation, some reflection and some goal planning. With that in mind, here's my plan for 2015.

Planning Ahead for Thanksgiving


From North of the Boulevard~

With the end of October approaching and our fall crafts prettily placed throughout our homes, it's time to start planning for Thanksgiving. Getting a head start on shopping is something that makes the day stress free for me. Procrastination just doesn't work for me.

Closet Conversion~Organizing a Display Nook

Converting a closet into a display space

From North of the Boulevard~ 

While having an empty nest brings lots of changes, I've leaned that it comes with a few advantages as well. One of those is that we could put our plan to convert what had become a spare bedroom into an upstairs den into action.  Gloria had a large bedroom and from the time we bought our house ten years ago, I knew that one day, her old room would become our memorabilia room. We waited until she was married and moved into her own place before we got started. It's still a work in progress, but one of the best parts of the room is the closet conversion.

Working 9-5 With Killer Shoes~Organizing a Wardrobe

From South of the Boulevard~

Normally for work I am supposed to wear business business attire but every once in a while when I have a meeting to attend, I like to kick it up a notch.  After losing 45 pounds, I have new found confidence in dressing up and picking out clothes.

Stair Case Gallery Wall

Staircase Gallery Wall

From North of the Boulevard~

Like most people, I have tons of family pictures. With three adult children and three grandchildren, it’s hard to decide what to do with all those snapshots of our life.  Lots of them fill the pages of photo albums, many of them are framed and displayed throughout my house and even more of them are stashed away in a storage bin. So many pictures!

I decided a little while ago to try to take control of the framed photo overload that was threatening to take over every available flat surface in my home. The answer was to create a staircase gallery wall. I love organizing the pictures this way.
