Hello friends. Today I want to talk about craft room organization. I'm always in the process of organizing my materials. I've changed my methods many times. I try one way then another then another until I find what works best for me.
I went through several types of paper storage for scrapbooking: First was a tall rolling cart of sorts where the paper would often get dusty from sitting out exposed. I've tried stackable trays, but they take up too much room. Now I am using drawers for my solids... (I have two of these on a table)
I tried using an inkpad storage container, but most of my ink pads wouldn't fit.
It also took up a lot of room, so I went with a regular plastic box for inkpads.
I keep my vinyl, paper scraps, and current projects in 12x12 bins that fit perfectly under the paper table.
I think there might be a better way to do this, although it's very handy hanging on the wall right by where I sit to sew.
I've tried several ways to organize stickers and die cuts. I started off using a zippered binder system, but it became too much of a hassle.
Then I began using a Creative Memories sticker keeper.
But I don't really like it. It's kind of messy looking, and regardless of the tabs, it is difficult to find what I'm looking for. So I started using this instead.
But I haven't relocated my stickers to this organizer just yet. Any suggestions for sticker storage that might look better and take up less space?
I'm really having trouble designing my pegboard where I will get the most use out of it. I basically took everythign down and restarted this project.
They were too tall, so you couldn't see what you had in them without putting something in the bottom, and they were very flimsy.
