If you’re like me your are gearing up for the onslaught of Christmas crafts. This time of year I am almost giddy with the anticipation of all the fun crafts to do an make. Favourites for me will be making candles and Christmas cards using stencil theorems. I have recently jumped back in with both feet and I am trying to get caught up on my scrap booking.
Last year I did something I sort of regret- I stated all my crafts and hauled everything out and dug right i without any preparation or organizing. it was pretty chaotic. Add to that my kids and their friends and within a few eeks I had trouble finding even a pair of scissors. Over the Summer I worked on creating a “craft” room but I am still not happy with it. I have been avoiding using a giant IKEA 5×4 cube Expidit shelf but think I may have to go that route. Currently I use 2 long shelves above a table and have clear bins I have labeled with White labels. I really should kick myself- I don’t like the way I organized them but labels are messy looking and smeared.
I should have used my DYMO Labelmaker to label all these bins! I have the bins sorted with brad and rhinestones, ribbon , inks and small paper packs. Uing my label maker I will also sort by color- using red for Christmas, Yellow from Spring, etc.
