Hi, I'm Christa Scheffer and I am the organizing enthusiast behind Creating Calm. I am an entrepreneur-at-heart, a lover of all things beautiful and orderly, and the mom to three wonderful grown boys and a Weimaraner named Shadow.
I came by my love of organizing honestly, if not later in life. Both my parents have always been neat and organized. They often encouraged me clean up after myself. Much to their dismay, it took me a while to see the value of this practice.
I can, however, now honestly say I am fully committed to 'cleaning up after myself' as I know how important it is to keep things neat and organized for the sake of my sanity.
I'm of the opinion that we do not have to choose between form and function. That our spaces can be both functional and beautiful at the same time. This is what I strive for when organizing anything; a space that functions efficiently and effectively and yet is beautiful to behold.
Creating Calm was born out of my desire to help people see how much more enjoyable life can be when we set up our home to be the beautiful sanctuary it can be. A place where we can come to at the end of a long day to relax, re-energize and rejuvenate. A space where everything we own has a place and there's a place for everything. Not just a house, but a home. A calm, lovely home!
Please send me a note to say hello and tell me about your organizing challenges.
