That's One Organized Craft Closet

Posted by Krista at 11:39 AM
Well, we did it! It wasn't easy, (ever do a project with your husband? Then you know what I'm talking about.) but we both survived and it is finished!  I am really pleased with the results. Thank you hunny for all your help and putting up with the fun that it was ;).

This is the top part of the closet.  On the very top shelf are things I rarely use. I have a box for scrap paper (I keep pretty much all the scraps for card making, ect), a bin for things to be scrapped, a big paper cutter, and a basket full of stickers for scrapbooking.  On the next shelf I have a basket for all my adhesives, a basket for pens, markers & the like, a basket for punches, and a basket for embellishments. The next shelf holds my Big Kick and other die machines, a basket of dies and folders for the machines, a basket of pieces for cutting systems, and a basket for tools (scissors, cropadile, ect).

The bottom shelf has a little desk like spot - a place I can put bills, keep a calendar, just whatever I need to keep track of. To the right of that I have my idea books (need to have those handy), my 8 1/2x11 paper and my scrapbooks. Oh yeah, and the little basket with a little sewing machine is just there for now.

At the bottom of the closet I have 2 rolling carts.  In the black cart I have items I've bought or saved for projects, things like notebooks to alter, clipboards to alter, stuff like that. On top of that cart I have 2 storage bins for my 12x12 paper.  In the white cart I have all my stamps in the bottom drawer. Inks and other sorts of stamp pads in the second drawer. The top drawer holds everything for embossing and glittering cards.  On top of the white cart I have the 2 cutters I use the most and a basket with all my stuff for the felt projects I want to make.

So there it is! My first organization project complete.  The only thing I want to do is make some labels or tags to hang off the baskets so I will remember what's it what without having to look. Plus it would be good if anyone else uses my stuff; so they can find and put it back easily.

Now to put the rest of my house back in order. ;) Funny how when organizing one space everything else gets neglected. So today will be spent getting the house tidy and ready for a great week of organizing, decluttering, and working on routines.  What are you going to do today?

Wow Krista, that is AWESOME! I'm so jealous. I would love to have all my crafting items in one spot...the closest I can come is one of those 5 drawer plastic things in my closet! Maybe one day, I can either repurpose or have my very own crafting room. :) Hey, a girl can dream right? ;)

Thank you both! I am really happy with it. Although I'm thinking PAINT!! But that will have to wait, other things to organize & clean first. :)
