I love to organize. Sometimes you wouldn’t know if by the volume of stuff I own, but I love anything having to do with organization. I salivate in Ikea at all the organizing possibilities.
I decided this month it was time to organize my crafting more efficiently. When I was first starting out, money was a factor. I had to be creative and do what I could with what little I could afford. And it sufficed. But now that I have graduated, my expenses can be elsewhere. 🙂
I am not only updating my craft fair booth, but also my “crafting corner” as I like to call it. Right now, it takes up space in my parent’s living room. When I move into my apt in Aug, it will be sitting in the lovely nook under my window in my bedroom. 🙂
Here’s what it looks like right now:
A trip to Target got me the black wire grid cubes and the 4-drawer cart. The grid cubes came in a pack of six, so the other three will be a part of my booth. Pretty nifty. As I whittle my way through my fabric, it will eventually make its way into the Sterlite tub below (the contents of which now reside in cart). I just have two boxes of that to go through. >.< Buying the cart was a great investment. Instead of my stuff being in a million small boxes, it’s all in a convenient cart. Which means I now have room for a staging area to wrap my shipments, which makes things a whole lot easier. My patterns are now neatly boxed away in pattern boxes from Joann.
Note to self: do not leave scrapbooking paper out after you’ve used it to photograph products because the cat WILL sit on it.
