Another week has passed and it’s time again for my weekly roundup. This has been a great week. I didn’t get a chance to get any hands-on projects done, but I did write a bit. Sometimes it difficult to do both. We are all so busy.
I did add an additional series to the the command center this week and I extended a challenge for all of you to join me on my make your bed every morning crusade during the month of November. 🙂 The addition to the command center is a weekly organization tip for the next 2 months and if you guys enjoy it, I may just continue with it. Change is always good because it means you are still growing and striving. I hope you have had a great week as well
I thank you all for showing up every week and for following my projects. I wish I could explain to you how appreciated you are. In the meantime, please enjoy my posts from last week and have a prosperous and productive weekend. Week-at-a-glance for October 26 – October 30, 2015.
Organizing one’s craft room can be a very personal endeavor. Basically, it depends on which and how many crafts you enjoy. Crafting/DIYing can be anything from painting and upcycling large pieces of furniture to crocheting and/or sewing and the size and type of crafting one is involved in will determine the amount of actual space required; however, with any craft or DIY project as with any other area of your life…organization is the key.
A disorganized craft space of twisted ribbons, loose buttons and spilled glitter can take the fun out of your craft projects. To prevent this from happening to you, plan to make your craft room well organized, fun and pretty space. Once you have your space divinely organized the next step is to maintain it.
Whether you have a space in your house dedicated to your hobbies or not, you can get your craft materials organized and make them look good as well. If you do not have a different room allocated for creative projects, think about sectioning off part of a room to store your crafts in one place rather than scattered all over the house. Also, if you have a room that is pulling double duty as, let’s say your dining room/craft room, you will need to find a way to make that work without leaving crafting projects out in a disorganized fashion.

Usually, I use this forum to provide you with tips from me suggesting the benefits of using the resources and skills of a VA to help run your business. I have tried to help you envision all of the things you “should” do when it comes to hiring a VA as well as some things you should not do. This week, however; we will take a look at how a solopreneur has successfully included a VA into the fabric of his business and the benefits of that relationship.
I stopped by Michael Hyatt’s site and I was intrigued with his article discussing his experience using the skills and services of a VA. Michael, like a lot of solopreneurs thought he could run his business without an assistant. Solo, if you will. Read more...

I thought it would be a good idea to begin a “Quick Tip of the Week” focused on organization for Divinely Organized. These will not be long articles, more like reminders or quickie tips you can use to keep your home and sometimes your car or office organized.
They will be quick tips and to some, they may seem quite obvious, but you would be surprised how just a nudge can help someone get and stay on the organizational track.
So for this week I would like to give you a quick tip for keeping your bedroom looking clean and organized. And the tip for this week is (drum roll please)…Make Your Bed Every Day. I know, I know, your mother used to tell you that too. But it’s true. If the bed is made, the room looks a lot less cluttered and thusly, organized and tidy. Read more and take the Challenge…
