Craft Room Organization Video Part 2

Whew, sometimes YouTube and I just don't get along. Not sure why, but I had such a time trying to get this simple, short video to upload last night. Finally this morning after another try, it cooperated!

Take another tour of my craft room, this time a little more close-up. Here I share some tips on storing your craft supplies to help you feel in control of your space and not overwhelmed while trying to create.

Please keep in mind that I'm not here to teach you how to "hoard" stuff and I try not to focus on the "ownership" of stuff. It's not a video that says "looky at all the stuff I have!" My goal is to share ways to keep the things you use in the best organized way possible for efficient crafting. And since crafting is my full-time job, I need things to be orderly and as efficient as possible.

I don't hoard anything, by the way. I only buy what I'll use (not just because it's on sale or a "deal") and I definitely use what I buy. If I haven't used something in a year, out it goes. Two times a year I hold a clearance sale in my home and what doesn't sell goes to the local elementary school, the Girl Scouts or my local church thrift shop. I have no problem letting go of supplies that I have outgrown, and I feel especially good if someone else can enjoy them.

So check it out and let me know your thoughts. I apologize in advance for the fast camera movements in certain scenes. (I really need a camera person so I can be hands-free.) Part 3, the final video, will be coming next week or so, so be sure to check back or subscribe to my YouTube channel.

Thanks for looking, and have a great weekend!

  6. Thanks for the helpful storage tips. What are the clear paper folder storage envelopes? And where did you get the tall pieces for storing all your alphabet pieces?
    Thanks so much again.
