These are a bit embarrassing. I HATE clutter....on counters, floors, etc. So I do a pretty good job at hiding it all behind closed closet doors :) My house always looks clean and I seem to find the things I need, but the craft closet was getting out of control. I was finding myself not doing as many projects with the kids because I didn't know what supplies I had in the back of the closet and to get to half of the stuff, I had to brace myself for a possible avalanche of foamies, glue sticks, pom poms, etc.
Notice the helpers. It was like Christmas. They kept finding kits from Oriental Trading, stamps, markers, stickers.....fun!
And the FINISHED PRODUCT....before you laugh at the lack of a really impressive "after", I will tell you that there were 3 LARGE TRASH BAGS full of stuff that I got rid of while organizing. Believe me!
I'm sure there are many more impressive craft areas out there, but this works for us. We craft in the dining room, in the basement, and I sew in the living room or at the kitchen table. No central location like many crafters. No fancy organizational system, no pretty labels, but we still create!
The red tote and the orange tote were the clearance finds.
I can't wait to start working on more projects with the kids! Next, I will tackle my sewing stuff...again. I did it a few months ago, but it never lasts long! I feel like I had a Tiffany day. My friend, Tiffany, loves to organize and her house is always spotless. The difference between us, I don't enjoy organizing, but I do enjoy the finished product, lol.
