Bead Studio is a mess... Clean up!

I have not been feeling as creative as I could be... not with the bead studio looking like this! This room also doubles as the office so we have lots of paperwork and books in there too. I want to walk out the minute I walk in. For the past couple of months, I have not been working in there. Mostly, I go in and drop projects or pick up materials. I dropped off my 10 month old at grandma's house earlier this week...and I had 4 glorious hours to clean/organize!
This shot is from the door looking in. To the left is the photography station. To the right is the husband's desk. He's only used it once and now basically serves as a dumping station for his junk.

This is the husband's desk. Full of clutter.

My work area. I  had unpacked from a show and stuff stayed on the floor.

The photography station. How am I supposed to photograph stuff with all that junk on there? Somehow Mandy the manny's hair even fell off.

ahhhh... much better. You should hear the vacuum with all the seed beads.

The husband's desk is clear. Hopefully, I can keep it that way so I can use it as a shipping station since he doesn't even use it.

Mandy is back on her station and she found her hair.

I had too much stuff on my desk. I think I had the mindset that I wanted to have everything easily accessible to me on the desk. But it was hindering me. I barely had room to work! I moved the scrapbook organizer container under my desk. It's full of bling and seed beads. 

I moved the multicolored cart out of the way of the closet door.  The top shelf of the bookcase is for my pounds of seed beads. The middle and last shelf now houses my photography props. I've never worn those shoes. They are only for shoe clips. Do you see that blue basket full of stuff? They were containers that I kept on my desk. No wonder it was so cluttered!

I hid a box of random stuff that needs to be sorted in the closet.

Here's another box of stuff that needs to be sorted in the corner.

Next post, I'll post photos of how I put away my beads/tools to keep it out of sight but still easily accessible. 

How do you organize your workspace/studio?
