Open for Business

Friday, October 6, 2017

            You guys, I have had such an exciting week. Beautifully Organized is open for business!

The idea of Beautifully Organized has been around for almost a year. 

I have been taking an interior design course with New York Institute of Art and Design. The course is at your own pace and I am almost finished with the 4th unit out of 6 units. 

I took a Professional Organizing course with IAP career college and earned my certificate with a perfect score on the final test! 

I read a course book on Interior Redesign (using what the client has to create new looks).

I realized when taking the interior design course that although I love the idea of taking a room from nothing and adding in lighting, and furniture, color and accessories, that not everyone was going to want or need that service. I love to organize. I love the feeling of taking an overwhelming space and creating something beautiful where everything has a place and you can sit back and enjoy it. That is when I decided to take the organization course and change my track a bit. Although I will still finish my interior design course and get my certificate, (and would love a job like that), I think the people who need me the most, are the people looking for a new look or just some help making their life more efficient! That is how Beautifully Organized was born!

Last summer I redid my nieces bedroom from little girl room to “big” girl room and blogged about it here

This summer I helped out a few friends to get experience and pictures for my portfolio. 

I took a kitchen from this....

Another kitchen from this....

We have renovated our house and have been bringing our visions to life slowly, such as with these shelves (which I talked about here)...

Speaking of shelves, I have also done little projects, such as helping my sister in law with her shelves, using only what she had on hand. 

 Here are the shelves before. Not a great picture, but I got to work without taking a before picture and this is the picture she sent to show me the shelves. I have to get better about remembering the pictures! I just get so excited to get started! 

Here are the shelves after

This whole week has been such a mix of emotions. Excitement of seeing this dream become a reality as I booked my first few clients. Nervousness about putting it out there and what if nobody likes it? What will I say when I walk into my first house....eeek! But ultimately I am pretty proud that I dared to take the leap. It has been a lot of work, but I am so ready! 

I hope that you will give me a call if you need some help in your home. No job is too big or too small. I would love to come over and help you with a bookcase or rearrange and organize your whole house! 

Thank you to everyone that has been cheering me on as I got ready to launch this business! I have had some amazing cheerleaders and for that, I am incredibly grateful!
