Creating an organized space specific for your craft doesn’t have to be difficult. Follow these 5 simple steps and you’ll be working on your masterpieces in no time!
Know What You’re Working Toward
The first step to creating your perfect craft room is to know what the end result should look like. While some may need a small work space with a few drawers, others may need a large workstation with shelving units. So, it all begins with what your craft is, and knowing exactly what’s needed to create an environment that inspires and gets those creative juices flowing.
Before you can create your dream space, you need to go through the items you’ve collected over the years. There’s good reason for this. Chaos can cause a cluttered mind, and a cluttered mind can stall creativity. Do yourself a favor and go through everything you have.
Discarding can be difficult for those that create. There’s always a fear of needing items for future projects. But be honest with yourself. If you’ve been holding onto something for years and haven’t found a use for it, then it may be time to say your good-byes. We’re not suggesting you toss it. Instead, donate it so it can be used by another passionate crafter.
After you’ve gone through your items and separated what you won’t use, make note of what might be missing. Perhaps glues or paints needs to be refreshed. Maybe you’re out of red thread. Could it be blank canvases that need to be replenished? A fully stocked craft room will be an asset when the mood strikes.
Bin and Label
The best way to stay organized is to put your items in labeled bins. There was wisdom when Benjamin Franklin said, “A place for everything and everything in its place.” Knowing where your items are offers more creative time for doing what you love.
