yesterday i attended a workshop on "lean manufacturing". it had been tailored for craft producers and was about cutting down waste (waste of materials, waste of time etc) and running a more efficient business. i learned a lot and came home with ideas about what i could do. mostly it's about the inefficiency of my studio space. i haven't really re-organized since the rush in november for the one of a kind show. it lead right into christmas and then preparation for the trade show i did this past week. that's actually a photo i took this morning of the entrance into the studio.
molly dropped off that bag of product and booth display yesterday and there was no room to get it further into the room. and yes - that's my yoga/meditation mat (how's that for serenity?) so somehow, in this busy winter of teaching and filling my new orders, i need to make time to make the studio work for me...
