Have you ever found yourself trying to pursue a creative pastime — watercoloring, writing a letter, playing your ukulele — but you’re VERY distracted? This might be caused by a cluttered, disorganized space. Seriously. Fortunately, all it takes is one dedicated afternoon, or a good weekend to get everything in its rightful place and for your creativity to be restored. But don’t just take our word for it! Recently, Jordan Ferney of Oh Happy Day teamed up with IKEA for a little bedroom reorganization.


After a shopping trip to IKEA, Jordan scored a few pieces to amp up the storage space in her bedroom. So what does this little life upgrade mean? “Now that I don’t have to spend the time hunting for my things, I can spend an extra 20 minutes in the morning on a creative goal (like taking ukulele lessons!)”


Check out Jordan’s blog for more IKEA organization tips that will make your day-to-day more efficient, leaving more time for creativity. Join the Daily Creative Challenge by devoting 20 minutes every day for a week (or a month!) doing something creative that’s out of your ordinary routine.
