So just how do you store your crafty stash?
I have just spent the best part of the day sorting out my crafty stuff and whilst it looks spotless to me now it still looks messy to a none crafter….I.e. the old man lol!
I have drawers of stamps, inks and pens. Boxes of fancy papers and embellishments and they are all tidied away again now but my desk, (my working area as I like to call it!) well that is another matter. I guess it’s because we need to have the stuff to hand don’t we? Things that you use every time you craft such as base card, tools, glue, coffee etc. and what’s the point in packing stuff like the Ebosser away when it’s such a beast to take out and put away again so that lives on the other corner of my desk.
I feel very lucky today as my fabulous hubby came in mid tidy up and suggested some new shelves to make storing card easier and ribbon storage too so he says if I can live with it for now, when the spring comes and he gets his new shed then he will make me some. I just wish it was spring already!
I remember when I first started crafting and kept all my stash in one little carrier bag, but you see everything that I have I need! When I got it I had a plan for it and the plan is still there, I reckon I could quite comfortably craft for the next ten years without buying anything else other than glue but does that mean I will stop buying pretty things and bargains? I think not!!!
Let me know if you have any amazing storage secrets that might help fellow crafters and I will share them!
Ps lets not get started on my knitting needles and yarn stash…………..
