Whether you make stationery or jewelry or quilts, keeping your supplies organized means you can create efficiently and with ease. After several months of planning, nearly a dozen trips to IKEA and weekends spent stacking shelves, I’ve completed the renovation of my own humble studio. Here’s a few simple tips, using samples within my space, on how to rethink your storage and maintain a pleasant place for crafting.
Office, kitchen & even garden storage containers often make great craft supplies storage:
Use plastic magazine and brochure racks for paper (including hard-to-store 12x12 size), rub-ons, stickers…
Glass cookie jars for ribbon scraps…
and mini flower pots for adhesives.
Create a space that sparks your creativity and keeps you motivated:
Why not use a map to keep track of your Etsy sales? I still have to put mine on the wall, but once it’s there, I’ll place a pin on the map for every time I get a sale in a new state. :)
Buy a motivating print, or design your own! My custom print came from SunAndPenny.
Show off your projects! I put my favorite cards of the moment in these little wall cubes.
