“Pobody’s Nerfect!” The Good Place Eleanor Shellstrop*
In the Summer when my studio was open to the public, I was really pleased with how I had set up my workspace. I had sketched out a plan and after a few tweaks was happy with the outcome. I had thought of everything? Or had I?
After the event there was an opportunity to get feedback on how we displayed our workspaces from a “secret shopper”. Turns out I had planned for visitors viewing everything inside my space, but I had forgotten about the window that looks into my studio from the corridor. Guess whose studio was used as a bad example of not making the most of the corridor window to present their work…… Yep it was Deco 22! Inside the clutter had been hidden well. However, that corridor window view was just a pile of card and fabric rolls visible and my logo. It did not look great. I was not the only bad example, but I was the only one that had their business name visible.
Now my space is limited and although I keep trying I still have a lot of stuff ……(but not talking about that right now!) ……and there is nowhere I can put those things in the space I have. So, this time I am trying something new.
The window has been covered with white paper so you cannot see my pile of stuff. This time instead of just my business name I have added snapshots of work in progress and some finished products. Lesson learnt, Nobody’s perfect and acknowledging your mistakes and working to improve them will always be a work in progress.
