Craft Room Organization

Wondering how the move to my new craft room is going?

VERY SLOWLY!

That’s on purpose though. While my husband quickly put in new flooring, painted, added shelves to the closet and assembled a new desk and drawer organizers from IKEA…

Craft Room Update

I have been slowly going through everything from my old craft room.

It’s time to let some things go. (Watch for an online garage sale coming soon!)

We crafters tend to save things because we “might” be able to use them on a project “someday”. 

I’m done with that.

The “things” were beginning to suffocate me and I could feel my creativity being drained by all the stuff.

As I sort through everything I am only saving the things I LOVE. The things that when I look at them inspire me to go make something right now.

I’m also taking my time deciding on how I want things laid out in my new craft room. Going for the best set up and organization I need to make the most of my room and best store my craft supplies for optimal creating.

The company Stamp n Storage has been on my radar for years but the only product of theirs I had until recently were their Magnet Cards to store my framelit dies. 

This post contains affiliate links, which means that if you click on one of the product links and make a purchase, I’ll receive a small payment from Stamp n Storage as a thank you for telling you about them. There is no additional cost to you and I’m only telling you about products I currently use or will be using in the very near future.

I recently ordered 2 of their Three-Tier Paper Holders for my 8-1/2″ x 11″ card stock.  They arrived the DAY AFTER I ordered them!! Now that’s what I call speedy delivery. First impression: These things are sturdy and very well put together. I can’t wait to get started using them!

 

60 Ink Pad Holder

Next on my wish list is a 60 Ink Pad Holder that can be mounted on my wall. My current spinning ink pad holder has served me well for many years but by moving my ink pads from my counter to the wall I’ll clear up more counter top space for stamping.

 

Lock Down Punch Holder

I also plan to get a Lock-Down Punch Holder to mount on my wall. While I loved my old punch holder made from IKEA towel bars it just wasn’t working as well for me since Stampin’ Up! switched from Whale-Tail punches to Lock-Down Punches.

I’ve also been meeting with California Closets to come up with better storage for under my counter. 

I love to stand up when I craft and a few years ago my husband used some free cabinets that were left over from a kitchen re-do to add a stamping counter to my room. I’ve loved it! However there was so much wasted storage space because they were big and open underneath. That’s going to change in my new room!

So that’s where I’m at. SLOWLY moving into my new craft room.

I’ll be sure to share more photos as I go and when it’s all put together I’ll do another video tour.

If you have any great organization ideas that have been working well for your craft supplies I’d love to hear them.

  • Oh, Jessica, I’m right there with you! I just moved and then I fell and hurt myself so everything has come to a stop as far as unpacking goes. I look in the Craft Room and feel so overwhelmed! There is so much in there I can hardly breathe. You provided some good ideas that I’ll consider. Thank you for your post, and I’ll keep watching for updates. Good luck!

  • DITTO on the inspiration to clean out…I recently moved to my new craft studio and am in process of “letting” go of things I have had for over 25 years! That includes scrap-booking stuff…thanks Jessica
