Per Lisa....Get in the zone!
I really believe that no matter if you’re crafting in a spare room, the bedroom, the garage, or on the kitchen table, you will be more inspired and more likely to enjoy the process of creating if your supplies are organized. Then when you can’t find what you need for a particular project, you’ll know it’s because you don’t have it rather than because it’s totally buried and you’ll have to spend lots of time looking for it.
Organization not only helps prevent you from buying more than you need, it also helps you find what you need in your existing stash.
For the past several years I have lived in a house with an extra bedroom that I turned into a studio office. I thought more space would surely make it easier to stay organized. But alas no…before I really invested some time (and a little money) into my storage solutions, my supplies were either piling up on my work table, spilling over into the hall closets, or they remained inside unopened bags on the floor…and then before too long, my workspace started encroaching upon the living room sofa and kitchen table. This “dreaded spread” will happen without organization, no matter if you craft in a dedicated room or in the corner of the family room.
Whether you’re organizing a drawer, a cupboard, a closet, or a whole room, it helps to divide the area into zones to keep similar types of supplies together.
Make zones for tools, fabric, paper, small embellishments, paints, glues, markers, stickers, etc. That way, when you aren’t sure whether or not you have a particular item, you only have to search for it in one zone, which saves so much time!
