This is what I came up with for my current projects. I hope this will help me to just keep a handle on what supplies I need for the task at hand.
This weekend, I gathered up my craft stuff that I have been using for the past couple of months (I have them stashed in my laundry room and garage - YIKES). What a mess. I have been crafting out of clear totes, a popcorn bucket and even brown grocery bags. It is driving me crazy, because, I can't find anything I need when I need it. I keep thinking, I know I saw that somewhere -----
I think this organizing project will take some time. I don't have a craft room or even a craft closet. I use a couple of shelves in the laundry room and that's it. So please, if you have a great craft set up that I can get some ideas from, please let me know in the comment section so I can grab a cup of coffee and head on over to check it out. Please, Please, Please....
I am trying to sort by, paint, fabric, ribbon, Christmas, Halloween, etc.........
See here I go again, I get side tracked and forget what this post is really about - ha ha.
While I was out in the garage, I came across this beauty. At first, I wanted to just paint it cute and put magazines in it. How Boring......
I did paint it and distress it a little then........
I got this great idea. I could put all my supplies for my current project in here and take it from room to room and be able to craft when I get a spare minute or two. I just cut cute paper to fit the front and mod podged everything.
I have a thing for burlap -- and you all know I love my rosettes, so I added some to the front.
I even tied ribbon on the handle to make it more festive.
Now, the back has me most excited.
I stamped lines on a piece of card stock and slipped it into a page protector.
I cut it to fit and glued it shut. I then glued it onto my mod podged back.
Now, I can write the contents on the back, or, make notes of what supplies I need to get with a dry erase. I can change the list whenever I change projects.
I am now working on my Valentine Cards.
I even put a few stamps in there. I am so excited about this. I think it will help in clutter control and I can pack up quickly and set up just as fast. Thank you for stopping by and as always,
Happy Crafting and Organizing.
