Some People Are So Clever!
Not unlike quilters who sport buttons or wall hanging saying "She who dies with the most fabric wins," enthusiastic crafters tend to accumulate a lot of craft materials. Trends change rapidly so we learn from experience that when we see something we can use at a reasonable price, we should buy it and put it away for future use. It's not likely that we'll see it again.
All of those craft materials can take up a lot of space and, because of their unusual sizes and shapes, it can be a challenge to store them in a tidy way that also allows them to be easily accessed when we're ready to use them. Shifting my craft space into another room has re-emphasized this for me, and also reinforced the need to put all my materials in order.
I was very pleased to see this post on organizing scrapbook supplies from the Creating Keepsakes Blog. Some of the ideas are really good. I will, for sure, be using pants hangers to organize my ribbon spools from now on!
