The staffers at Hands on Pottery Studio appreciate that many artists need an inspirational push—especially in the face of more than 150 paintable objects. That's why they've installed a design center, where guests can peruse books, trace stencils, or print patterns from a computer to inform their opus ideas. They allow painters unlimited access to their wall of paints, and mosaic-makers can pick through a trove of marbles, glass, and tile fragments. Constantly striving to nurture creativity, they stroll past tables of guests at work and remain attentive to questions or requests. They don't believe in obstructing the process by charging by the hour or the final number of paint splatters on the guests' clothing. Instead, they encompass all equipment and studio time within a single price for paint-your-own appointments, freeing artists to craft elaborate home-decor pieces or personalized gifts fit for weddings, birthdays, and anniversaries.
Their vision of communal artistry stretches beyond these sessions, however. They host mobile and onsite parties, workshops, and summer camps, which teach children to exceed the output of every great film director by crafting five projects in five days. With a retail stock of customizable gifts, they also display their own painting prowess to commemorate cherished events.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Organization is not just for the wealthy. It is for the single mom who can't find her keys through all of the kids toys in the entry way, and the new couple just moving into their starter home with no idea of where to start unpacking. It is for the elderly couple with a little too much stored in the attic, and the family of four who is trying to squeeze every ounce of usable space out of their home. We work with all clients, of all income levels, for all organizational solutions.
Organizing Options, LLC. helps keep living quarters tidy with organization solutions and systems designed to optimize storage space. The staff plots out storage systems, renovates garages and home offices, and designs and installs closets.

In 1965, Popular Mechanics ran a small classified ad for Brookstone, a new catalog company that packed its pages with functional products and detail-oriented descriptions. Brookstone quickly expanded to meet the high demand for its collection of ?hard-to-find tools,? and opened the door to its first retail location in 1973. Today, Brookstone?s more than 300 nationwide retail locations allow customers to test-drive its ever-growing lineup of interesting products, which range from Bluetooth-enabled massage chairs to power adapters designed for international travelers and their electronic passports. Staying true to its roots as a catalog company, Brookstone houses an even larger selection of products, each waiting patiently to be shipped, on its website.
