My New Organized Craft Corner

My little corner filled with all things crafty became a dumping ground over the last couple of months.  It was time for a change!  So I carved out a few hours one Friday afternoon and did some serious organizing.  I find it so energizing to take a stale unorganized space and make it functional again.  Here's what it looked like before (don't judge me, we all know crafting leads to hoarding!).



Eeek!  Yarn overflowing, crochet needles everywhere, felt and fleece piled high, and you can barely see my poor sewing machine.

I first decided the quilting table was no longer working for me.  I mean, I never quilt so it seems ridiculous to have a QUILTING table.  I quickly found it a new home through Craigslist.  We had a spare desk so I decided to use it.  It's a simple desk that will make it more difficult for me fill with clutter (hopefully).

I took everything out and off the desk and shelves, moved my new to me desk in, and then proceeded to do some major de-cluttering.  There was a bunch of junk inside that quilting table.  I made some piles, found unused containers throughout my house, labeled them with a paint pen and viola!  A completely new and organized Craft Corner.


Wow!  So fresh, so clean!  Everything has a place with room for more.

Here's the breakdown of where everything ended up.


Not in view is a table top ironing board and 2 cutting mats discretely placed behind the bins underneath.  And I now have a drawer to keep my notebooks full of crafting ideas.


And since this desk has open space underneath I thought filling it with well organized bins would help me keep the clutter at bay.


So that's it.  My new organized Craft Corner.  I hope I can provide some inspiration to my fellow crafters for your own Craft Corner or room.
