A Little Help Here?

24 Sep

Oh goodness. As embarrassing as this is – I decided to show you my craft room now that it’s EXPLODED with supplies, prep for the huge craft show I’m doing, as well as boxes of team items.

 

 

Since I’ve been busy concentrating on getting enough inventory – I’ve slipped a little when it comes to keeping this place organized. It seems like every day I come in here it starts out looking like this and after an hour or so it turns into this:

 

Better.. but oh so disorganized. It took me about thirty minutes to find my modge podge. By the time I was done finding it – I didn’t even want to attempt the project anymore! This girl is going to take some time organizing this place so I don’t have to keep rearranging and finding place.

I started looking online for cheap storage solutions that I could also use to display items at craft shows and came across these at Target for $15.99. I’m ordering three of them. I’ll also be buying buckets to go in the squares so your not looking at all the crap I have 🙂

 

After going to a friends house and seeing how she stored her large sheets of paper I had an ah-ha moment! I could hang fabric from that to keep it from getting the fold lines and having to iron them over and over again. She had an extra and let me have it so for now I’m going to try it out and if I like it – I’ll be ordering another. These are $14.99 from Ikea and exactly what I need to get some more storage shelf space.

 

The last purchase I’ll be making this two weeks is a paper rack to get my paper off the bucket on the floor and make it easier to see what I have. I found this off of Amazon and think it would do the job well – especially for 13 bucks!

 

This process will end up being a few posts long. My goal is to take this space and the items I have and create a working organized system from top to bottom. No more wasting precious crafting time!

 

Thanks for stopping by!

 

Love Always,

J

    We always feel better when everything is organized… I wasn’t sewing for a couple of weeks because of the state of my sewing room….!

      Yeah – it’s been hard to get anything accomplished with it this chaotic!
