About Us: The History of Shape Up Your Space

D ecorating and organizing come naturally to Dawnell and Diane, and they have been helping friends with their homes for many years. With encouragement from many acquaintances, they have combined their talents and efforts to bring these valuable services to others. For the past five years they have helped clients find calm and order in their homes, offices, garages, and craft rooms. Their specialty is using what a client already owns to transform a space into a functional, relaxing and aesthetically pleasing room.

Dawnell and Diane have also worked in the educational system for more than 20 years. Dawnell is a paraeducator in the regular classroom and has also worked in classrooms with special needs children. Diane is an elementary school teacher and substitutes in classes K - 8th grades. This classroom experience has been invaluable in managing the chaos and clutter that accompany a room of 24 or more students. Tapping into skills used to guide and teach also helps clients learn new strategies for maintaining a clutter free environment. Who better to learn new techniques from than two experienced teachers? They are patient and accepting as they lead you to a fashionably clutter-free, stress-free and happier life!
