"What a mess we had - with a guest coming to stay in our longtime "Stash and Dash" rooms. I brought in Spaces Simplified and was SHOCKED at what we accomplished in one afternoon. What would have left me rocking in a corner actually became do-able and even enjoyable. I am only sad that I waited so long. Jacqueline's vision, experience, work ethic and personality were exactly what I needed. Our house size has increased and we are loving our new spaces, relaxing more and having fun together. What a weight off my shoulders."

Before Jacqueline from Spaces Simplified came and helped me organize my workshop (ie my life!), I felt scattered, disorganized, and stressed out in my space which should have been a happy place to work in. After all, I was creating beautiful products using natural, fresh ingredients. These ingredients deserved better care than I was giving them under these messy conditions. I tried moving things around, making attempts at various layouts but none seemed to eliminate the chaos. I couldn't figure out what I was doing wrong.
Jacqueline came in and first listened to my concerns, and what I was trying to accomplish. She had such a nice way of asking me questions, repeating my answer back to me to make sure she understood. Her suggestions were flexible and if I had a reason not to do something in a certain way, she always had a few more solutions that could fit the bill. It was truly liberating! I thought linear and she thinks in 3D! She sees the immediate and the long term whereas I couldn't get past the immediate.
Little by little, the workshop started taking shape. She taught me to map out the desired layout, to place workstations so that they flow, and to keep little pieces from flying everywhere. Everything has its place now and when I reach for something, there are no longer boxes, bags, etc. falling on my head or crashing down from the closet!
There were a few changes and additions that took place a few weeks after Jacqueline was there, that I felt I could handle on my own but since I wasn't sure if I was still using the space as best as I could be, I called Jacqueline and she came to re-asses the new layout. With a few tweaks, I was on my way again!
Jacqueline was so understanding and her personality made me feel at ease, whereas I would have normally felt embarrassed about the mess I was working in.
My workspace truly does flow now and I feel happy and at peace just like I should. This happy energy is what I want to be going into my products. I'm so thankful to have had this opportunity to work with Spaces Simplified. I'm saving time and money now that I'm no longer ruining items or re-ordering things which were already in my closet!
I truly recommend this service, whether for personal or work.
