Craft Room Organization Ideas

Let’s Get Organized & Celebrate My Blogiversary

Before I share some amazing craft room organization ideas – I’ve got lots to celebrate here at  the Party Fetti blog because this week marks my seven year blogiversary and for my Etsy shops!

Can you believe that? SEVEN YEARS is a long time for a blogger to hang in there.  I have followed many blogs over the years that lost steam, were abandoned by the author or just entirely disappeared. It’s crazy to think that seven years ago this week, I launched this party themed blog pretty much on a whim.  I certainly did not know if my business on Etsy would take off like it did and that I would grow and expand every year and still be here! So, to celebrate- I wanted to share my craft room storage recommendations.

Since my business has grown, so has my crafting space!  I now have a separate business office and a work studio and I still feel like I am bursting at the seams.  Keeping things organized and in its place is key to being productive and finding things easily.  Since I am a very visual person, almost all my craft space features open cubes, rolling carts and clear drawers.  Anything that I can not easily see- I label on the outside for quick access when looking for something.  I love my open cubes.

Even my work desk takes advantage of storage space and has open cubes at the base.

I have several pegboards that help keep tools in sight and easy to reach.

I have a walk-in closet in my studio and I use every square inch of it, even hanging some fabric and would you believe my tissue tassels too!

I only make a few party designs with fabric but keeping a good selection of patterns and colors requires quite a bit of space- so keeping fabric folded and in cubes by color is my recommendation.

This year I just purchased several open style wall hanging shelves shaped like houses for more open storage.  They are so adorable!

Come back next week for amazing Valentine’s Day party ideas!

I have also added tons of NEW Valentine’s Day favors, banners and decorations to all my shops and more are coming this week and next week, be sure to stop by my shops by clicking on the links below-

Fall Home Tour

FALL HOME TOUR

Why My Home Is Not Farmhouse Style

There is one thing you should know about our home- it is not farmhouse style and thank goodness! I need COLOR!

Fall is my favorite season, because of all the bright colors of autumn. I like my pumpkins orange and not white and grey. No offence to those who have white decor, white walls, white furniture and white everything.  I do love neutrals – looking at all those ivory, grey, and tan shades is certainly calming and wonderful . . . in someone else’s home. As for me, I went with neutral walls so that I could change out my home decor every season with a pop of color.

Today I am sharing a few areas of my home decorated for fall, starting with our entry table above that is a layered abundance of fall floral arrangements and rustic accents. Yes, I painted that scarecrow stave in the corner many years ago and made the fall wood sign last year.

Our dining room has a wonderful large bay window that lets in so much light in the morning – of course I took these photos a bit late in the afternoon, so even with my flash on and lights all turned on, its a bit dark, but I think its still bright enough to show off.  One of my favorite pieces in our home is the wood box centerpiece on our dining room table – I change it up every season.  Right now it’s filled with leaves, glitter pumpkins, acorns and three electric candles.

My husband made the hanging wood piece above our buffet.  I designed it, but he built it for me last year.  I added the lanterns and switch out the wreath for different holidays.

We just purchased this sideboard cabinet a few weeks ago- it has stunning details, which is why I fell in love with it, plus it was refinished.  I found it at our local area pop up shops in Kansas City, called the West Bottoms.  I love shopping there- I always find recycled home decor and vintage treasure!

This is our kitchen and informal dining room fireplace and my favorite place in the home.  On cold winter nights we turn on the gas fireplace and eat dinner at this cozy table-

Last are a few of my side tables decorated for fall around our home.

Finally, a few items I’ve tucked in that are actually for sale over at my home decor shop on Etsy-  Once Upon A Home Designs

This set of wood pumpkins and fabric pumpkins made by me –
