Have y’all noticed the new section of the site? We are happy to now be carrying quilting supplies! There are lamps, quilting frames, long-arm quilting frames and much more. We know that if you love scrapbooking and crafts, you’ll love to quilt too. Now we are a one-stop shop for all of the necessities! Are you a quilter? When did you start quilting?
I just moved. There is little (aka NO) storage in this house except the garage. So my Christmas decorations, skinny clothes and wrapping paper (among 1000 other things) are all stacked in plastic bins. If I want something on the bottom, I have to take down the other four bins on top! It’s a pain. I looked into storage shelves and (MAN!) they are expensive. Then I ran across this gem:
Isn’t it great? It is so simple that I’m sure I could even do it myself. Is there a space in your home that could use this great storage shelf? What do you think about tackling this project?
The instructions are written at this link too.
Today I told my husband I wanted to accomplish three things — one of them was to “quickly” clean up the garage. We had a few things taking up the space my husband usually parks, so I thought we’d take a half hour and make it so he could park inside again.
OH MY. I was wrong. After we’d been down there over an hour with little progress, we decided we would come back to it another day. Where do I put all the stuff? I thought it would be an easy fix, we would agree on the solutions and move along with our Saturday. But apparently I’m not as organized (or as great an organizer) as I thought.
I write about this to just ask for a shout out — are you a great organizer some days (or with some things) and not so great when it comes to others? We here at Scrapbooking Crafts and Storage are here to help you organize the unorganized, but today I might need to reach out and ask someone else for help. Don’t worry though, my scrapbooking stuff looks awesome and is totally organized!
Anyway, today I think my problem is I let too many little things build up. I think organization starts with simple things: ribbon organizers, cup holders and photo albums all gather the things creating clutter and give them a place. Then you take those little things and put them in bigger things, like desks and armoires.
What is your philosophy? How do you like to organize?
Last week when I was in Michaels, I ran across this cute Mary Engelbreit print that I thought y’all would enjoy:

Even when I feel like I don’t have enough time to breathe, I know that if I set some time away for my projects I will feel so much better! I should buy this print and hang it by my computer to remember to do some “traditional” crafting. How do you keep yourself sane?
