Office Makeover (full disclosure)

I love my home office.

Someday I may rent an office space but for now, I love the comfort and convenience of being home, especially because it affords me extra quality time with my three-year-old. Yes, I often play Crazy 8s with him while I’m using the computer or put him in front of the TV with a snack when I need to take a call.

The walls are turquoise, the pretty office supplies are plentiful and I get sunshine in the window all day long. Plus my husband planted roses right outside the window that I get to enjoy.

This is the picture I use online of my desk/work space. I share the space with my husband for the time being. Naturally this is the cleaned-up version.

Here is the full disclosure part…THIS  is where I usually work: at my craft table on the laptop. I am involved in a LOT of projects at the moment all the time, so there’s no shortage of STUFF. This is actually the cleaned up version! Notice the crafting supplies and miscellaneous clutter that surrounds me while I work. I don’t mind it, but I would like it to be more…calm.

I admit it, I do dream of having an office like this…

So I have teamed up with my friend and colleague, Sherry, of Totally Transformed to help me de-clutter and reorganize my space, including my vast amount of craft supplies and Mary Kay paraphernalia. I am hoping to get myself super-organized so that I can work my business even MORE efficiently and with MORE creativity!

I’ll keep you updated on my progress but for now, it’s in the ‘way worse before it gets better’ phase. This is my desk currently, as I purge and sort.
