here's a long overdue peek into where the crafting magic happens...
in my dreams...i would have a white desk. my over-four-year-old big honkin' ikea desk is practical for all the space it gives me...but it's so dark. the chore of maybe being able to take it apart, get it downstairs, and spraypaint it isn't worth the hassle for me. obviously.
to my eagle-eyed readers: yes, i took these pictures waaay back in march and am just now sharing them with you. :)
since i forgot to pull back the curtain, here's an old picture of inside my crafty closet...i first painted this room blue before deciding i preferred a clean white slate for all my colorful craft and art supplies. the closet organization looks basically the same as when i first set it up. you'll just have to take my word for it. :)
a closer view of the clear shoe boxes from the container store-- they are insanely useful around the house...especially for organizing craft supplies.
oh, there's something that has changed: my washi tape collection quickly outgrew that little vase and it's now stored in a repurposed floor grate on my windowsill.
my pile of favorite neutral fabrics -- used mostly for photo backgrounds -- sits out in the open:
the rest of my fabric stash is folded in dresser drawers in the closet:disclaimer: old picture. this portion of closet organization may or may not be currently as neat as it appeared originally. :)
about one-seven-hundredth of my bottle and vase collection:
my hidden attempts at organization: a corkboard hung behind the door holds receipts, business cards, paint swatches, fabric swatches, items we're interested in purchasing...i covered the back of the door with chalkboard paint and that's where i keep some of my to-do list. at any given time, i have at least three to-do lists in circulation.
the remaining wall is lined with to-be-finished projects, extra picture frames, reams of computer paper, and artwork. maybe someday i'll be brave enough to show you the mess......maybe...
do you have a dedicated craft space?
do you have any tips to keep it organized??
