Steve and I moved cross country back in December, We are currently renovating and living in our new home. My Current craft space is 9x10 - the space we are renovating for the craft room will be 24 x 20ish. No matter what size space I have, keeping it neat and orderly is a priority. Chaos kills my creativity! We painted this little room a nice bright yellow to keep it cheerful. I still have all of my sewing stuff packed, so for now, I'm doing paper craft related art. If you are like me, storage is an issue. Compared to some crafters I don't have a lot of "Stuff" but I do have a lot of paper and fibers, keeping track of that is a challenge! Here is my result: Keep reading for more details
My Trusty bottle of Best Ever Glue helped me come up with a "prettified" solution
Steve looked at this mess and just shook his head, I know it is awful. This room will become part of the Master bedroom so we don't want to do anything with it - like put up shelves.
I have 7 of these large base units holdinding stampy paper crafting sullpies, 4 of them are full of cut paper. I cut my designer paper into 6x6 and 5x7 stacks (from 12x12 pads). What I needed to wrangle was the 12x12 pads and fibers that I store in these Sterilite containers.
I literally had nowhere else to go but up the room is stuffed - trust me I am not suffering, I just wanted to get this under control so I can work better
Last year when I was planning out this room (knowing I would be in it for about a year) I used this to plan my colors"
Since I still had the paper stack I made this with (and I could find it) I cut 2.5-inch strips to line the face of the drawers
and used just a tiny squiggle of Best Ever Glue. It dries completely invisible and holds paper to plastic perfectly!
Popped them in and created a label.
Steve is still shaking his head, but at least it looks better and I know where everything is. Total time into this - about 2 hours.
I hope this might be a helpful solution for some of your "stash Issues"!
