Just recently I decided I needed to seriously go through all of my craft "stuff" and reorganize. First, you need to know that I have always stored my stuff away in bins that I could put in a closet (what was I thinking?!) Here are some storage tips that saved me:

1. THROW STUFF AWAY. If you've been saving things for over 6 months to a year for some crafty purpose and you haven't used it yet, PITCH IT!

2. Put your supplies on shelves! Not bins. It's easy access (that's what she said), and really cute. Surround your supplies with pictures, books, and make it YOUR space.

3. Find cute, inexpensive containers to organize. (Orange basket = .99 at Target for embroidery thread, pink catty for pain brushes and glues = $1.99 Hobby Lobby, Liberty of London storage boxes = $6.99-8.99 at Target). Helloooo adorable.

4. No shelves? Make them. Use an old book shelf or get the cheap-o ones you can mount on the wall. Go to Goodwill. Unfortunately, being thrifty takes a little more effort.
Fill your shelves with cuteness.

Make space where you think you don't have any :) I obviously still have the problem of not cleaning up after myself.... must work on that.

  1. I can't throw out crafts and such! Not so sure as to why though! I have a disgusting amount of construction paper in all colors but it WILL be used...eventually! I never know when I am going to be inspired! I like to sketch, I'm a bit rusty at the moment but I will work it and rock it again! :) Glad I stumbled upon your blog!
