My Crafting World...


A very small post about what my space looks like...
and I mean a very small space.
I am very organized... and I have a place for everything.
When I craft and create It does take over,
but it cleans up in 10 mins or less...

I have a system... 
1. Know your colors
2. A place for everything
3. Keep it in reach or view
4. Categories
5. Purge, Give away or Donate...

*the biggest one... if it is smaller than 3x3 for paper... give it away
If I have less than 6 inches of ribbon, twine, trim... give it away
If I haven't used it in 2 years... give it away...
Use it... don't hoard it...

Simple... at least in theory...
to make it easier... 
I give away all my scraps and anything that fits the above to my friend Ms. Kitty...
She just started her journey into cardmaking and crafting.
So she really likes all my giveaways...

Finally here is my crafting world...


It's not pretty ...
although I dream of eventually having a craft room, for more room, with matching furniture... LOL
it doesn't have to be perfect, and pretty...
the truth is I would rather invest in my supplies, tools and anything I want then in 
furniture...
after all a pretty place is not a requirement to create... 





My favorite item to organize with is the adorable little racks I found in the bathroom section at TJ Maxx...
I don't know what they were made for, but when I saw them I knew they would fit my space and display/hold my ribbon perfectly...  They only cost $15 each... what a find...
Here they are:





So there it is... 
although there is paper stored under the table in roll away bins...neatly
and in the big brown Frankenstein shelf I have my cricut in a cubby and my tools in the pull outs and cabinets... it all works...
