Unless you watch YouTube craft room tours, it is hard to know what other craft rooms look like. While I am at the crops at Stamp and Scrapbook Expo, I always walk around in amazement at the portable crop organization that I see. It is no easy task to pack up everything you have at home and bring it with you to the crop. You all know our wonderful Michelle who works at the crops. I am going to take you on a little behind-the-scenes tour of her fabulous craft space. (It sure helps when you are a photographer and your friend has a photo-worthy craft space!) Are you ready to be amazed at how everyday storage solutions can be functional and fabulous?
Organizing your embellishments into their own containers will save you so much time looking for the perfect item! Having your products in one central location in your craft room will not only look appealing but also just might spark some creativity within you. I could just stare at this view forever.
Let’s say you want to organize all of your little items but you don’t have space in your room that allows for height. Normally you would think that jars are out of the question because you don’t have a high enough shelf clearance for them. Don’t get discouraged! Take a look at this organizer that would slide under almost anything and needs barely a 2-inch clearance. I would suggest looking at thrift stores for unique storage solutions and you may be surprised at what you find.
One place where you can find solutions for your home craft space is in the kitchen department at any store. We all like a well-organized kitchen. Just think to yourself… can that flour or sugar organizer work for my glitter? You betcha! Give it a try and think outside of the box.
If you don’t have tabletop storage, look up! Use those walls. This is probably some fancy shelving, but to me, it seems like rain gutter spray-painted would do the job just as well. By moving up along the wall it allows your table to be free of clutter. Just think what else you could store on the wall!
If your craft room is tucked away in a part of the house no one can see, clear jars work perfectly. You can see what is in every container for more efficiency. But let’s just say for a minute that your craft space is in the family room of your house and your husband does not want to see colorful pompoms everywhere. You can line the glass jars with fabric or paper and conceal the contents. By doing this they would be disguised and look uniform no matter where your craft supplies are.
All of your clear containers do not have to be the same size. Take a look at this picture and all the different sizes that are represented. Do you organize by color in this same way?
Have we given you some craft room organization inspiration? I sure hope so! We want to see where you craft at home. It could be on your kitchen table, in your converted garage, or in a corner of your bedroom. The point is that it doesn’t matter where you craft, as long as you are happy crafting!
See you at the Stamp and Scrapbook Expo Crop!
