So now you have the inside peek into what it looks like where all your pretty cards are made and assembled! What a mess!
I have been torn between just going with this, and then splurging to create more of a workable, pretty space. My frugal self says that it's not necessary and I can suck it up, but then when I look at it, I think, "Oh my, I can't take this anymore! It's soo messy!!"
Yesterday I took my very first trip to The Container Store with Patrick. I told him about my internal dilemma as we were driving around close by to this amazing store, and he told me, "Well it doesn't hurt to look. We don't have to spend a ton of money, plus we can just get ideas to begin with." Thanks for the common sense, Patrick! :)
The Container Store is actually having their "Work Smart Office Sale" right now, and I was truly inspired when I left. I didn't buy anything, but I took their sale catalog home to look through and think about how I could organize that stuff above. Patrick was right--it didn't hurt to look! In fact, it helped a lot!!
In the meantime while I plot and plan, here are some photos of really great workspaces:

Have a lovely Tuesday!
