Craft Room Organization-Compartment Shadow Boxes

Craft Room Organization

 Hello Friends,

Last Friday, I shared with you 3 Steps to Getting Started Organizing your Craft Space and Ribbon Organization.  This week, let's talk about using Compartment Shadow Boxes in your Craft Room.

Compartment Shadow Boxes are a great way to showcase and organize small things is your Craft Room.  They can be hung on the wall  or they can be free standing or...

Organize Your Craft Room

 they can be used lying flat in drawers to organize lots of little things.  This is oh so much better than rummaging through a drawer of this and that to find one small thing.  This one houses Washi Tape, Clear Blocks for stamping,  Address Stamps, Business Cards, adhesive removers, enamel dots, paper doilies and more.  Imagine a drawer that stores oodles of things and... each little thing has its own spot.

You can buy compartment Shadow Boxes both used and new.  Look for them in antique stores, online or in your local craft  and department stores.  

Let me know in the comments, if you found this Craft Room Organization tip helpful.  Be sure to stop back next week for daily paper craft ideas, a Color Challenge (Tuesday)  and more.  If you are looking for Handmade Christmas Cards and Paper Crafts ideas, be sure to stop by on Wednesday for my 3rd installment of the 12 Weeks of Christmas. 


Have a fabulous weekend,

How to Get Started Organizing Your Craft Room

  Organizing Your Craft Room

Hello Friends,

Do you feel overwhelmed when it comes to organizing your Craft Space?  You're not alone.  It's a big job, but you can do it!  I'm in the process of redoing my Craft Room, so I thought that it would be fun to share the process with you.  I did a series on How to Organize Your Craft Room in 2012.  You can view them on YouTube Here.   I was still learning the whole video process back then, so please excuse the quality.

  Craft Room Organization

Step One

Step one is a step that you can use to organize any room in your house including your Craft Room.  Sort your things into 3 groups:  Keep,  Give Away or Sell and Trash.  Hint:  Start small and work your way around your space.  Tackle the first cabinet or bin, then go on to the next sorting into your 3 categories as you go.


Craft Room Organiation

Step Two

Now that you have gotten rid of a lot of things, you are ready for step two.  Hint:  Getting rid of things that you are not using is essential.  Bless someone else or generate a little extra cash for you redo, but it is essential to move along the things that you are not using anymore.

Step Two is to rethink how you are going to arrange your room.  Even among the things that you are going to keep, some things (furniture and storage solutions), may be more useful in another area of your home.  For instance, my old office chair is finding a new home in my husband's hunting blind.  And that put a smile on Joe's face.  Erase from your mind how it it used to be and envision a whole new space.  Draw up a plan and go to Step Three.



Ribbon Organization

Step Three

Now that you have your "big picture", begin working on how to organize smaller groups of craft supplies.  Here's an example.  Yesterday, I rethought how I was going to store my beautiful collection of ribbons.  In my previous room it was all stored on my ribbon rack collecting dust or stuffed in a drawer long forgotten. My newer or current ribbons still have a home on my ribbon rack, because they are easily accessible and pretty.  But the rest of my collection has been rerolled and is housed by color in trendy Mason jars that I found at my local Kroger Market Place.  Now my beautiful ribbons are safe from dust and they have become part of my decor.  How fun is that!   And...I eliminated a whole lot of space gobbling ribbon rolls.   Step Three is a process that may take a while, but it's worth the effort.  




Have a fabulous weekend,
