Craft Room Craft: Bring Order to Your Obession

Perhaps it’s because we admire the times of our grandparents, builders with a relentless ethic, or our resounding love of design, but I believe our generation is a very DIY-oriented generation. We like making things with our hands and challenging our brains, valuing creativity. It was Maya Angelou who said “You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” Preach girl! Now, bring order to your arts and crafts. 

To some, organization is an expression of creativity. Let us explore, and here we are talking sophisticated organization tactics beyond boxes and folding bins. 

Color Code: Probably my favorite organizing tip for any space (see the color-coded bookcase or closet), but there is something about this kind of order that is simply delicious.

Say Yes to Glass and Acrylic: Clear receptacles are the way to go to see just what you are organizing. Let’s be real, mason jars are cheap and cool (yeah, I said it, I like mason jars…but don’t overdo it) and you can use old spice jars and acrylic units. Now days, they have acrylic storage for everything like this one here

Use Rods: For wrapping paper, ribbon, paper towels or hangers. Rods allow you to tap into your available vertical space (which there is always more of).

Use Dem Walls: Especially for us apartment dwellers as we will never have a craft room, merely a craft corner. Arrange your crafts or inspiration like an art piece on your wall. Be it fabric swatches or sketches, surround yourself with inspiration while using all available space. Hang fabric boards or storage units to help you along the way.

Built In: Use those drawers and cabinets. Perchance you can test your carpentry skills but nothing is cleaner than straight up putting your crap away! Simplify and minimize.
