Craft Room Organization Tips

CRAFT ROOM INSPIRATION

CraftRoomCollage1

Some of you crafters/makers/artists will appreciate this roundup of tips and ideas for your creative space today.  If you are like me, my studio/craft room begins to look like chaos after a whirlwind week of projects.  Since I work from home and my studio is my work space, I try to keep it clean and organized but some weeks the new projects set aside to work on start to gather around my floor and pile up on my desk.  Today I am sharing some tips and all around visual inspiration for tackling craft room organization.

First I want to mention the health benefits of crafting and why it helps keep the body and mind young and sharp!

Okay, enough of the facts.  Time for some visual eye candy-

Peg boards are a great way to get your tools and supplies off your table surface –

And the peg board also makes quickly grabbing what you need a convenience.

I have this work table in my studio and it pulls double duty as storage and a work surface.  I love it.  You can find it at several online retail outlets.

However, standing and working is not for everyone. Here are some well organized seated spaces-

This is great working small space.  I personally love white furniture in my studio and updated all my bookcases and storage to all white.  All the colors of my craft supplies and bright cardstock really pop against the white furniture. It lends to a fresh and clean feel- even when you are a bit unorganized!

Maybe posh is more your style? This office type setting still offers lots of hidden storage while looking more like an executive’s home office. This might not work for a full-time maker but if you only dabble in a few crafts and have limited supplies, an abundance of storage may not be needed.

In contrast, lots of open cubby space may be needed instead.  This is a nice small space but features a great shadowbox style open shelving above.  I love all the different size storage squares and the distressed painted desk! Don’t be afraid to add color and inspiring art and objects in a room that is devoted to crafting.  If you are just converting a small space in your home, you may not want to go all out on color and decorating the area- keep it more simple and clean with matching furniture and only one to two pieces.  Cabinets with doors are great too for  hiding craft supplies in a craft area that is not an entire designated room.

Closets converted to a crafting area and craft supply storage are great for hiding all those tools and knick knacks when they are not in use.

Open areas with some natural sunlight help to inspire creativity and offer good lighting. If you have a large enough room, use the space. This huge work table centered in the room above is a great example of good work flow.

Built-in cabinets are a perk, if you can afford it.  This is a nice layout with large windows allowing for maximum natural light.

Whatever your craft style, budget and space will allow for in your home- plan it out if you are getting ready to add a studio or craft space. Ask yourself what your level of storage needs will be based on what you make and your supplies. Think about what you may acquire in the future for supplies too.  Start by pinning designs you like on Pinterest and build your craft room as a vision before jumping in and buying too small or a lot of furniture.

Check out my personal Pinterest board that I used two years ago when I remodeled my studio-

My Creative Space

Figure out what your space will allow for and remember to create some art and make something for yourself for you new space.

Come on over to my craft shop on Etsy for a pinwheel kit to add a table centerpiece full of color your new creative area or if you need additional supplies-

Pinwheel Party in Pastels

PAPER PINWHEELS PASTEL PARTY

Hey You! It has been a little bit of a lag in between my writing here on The Party Fetti Blog.  Expect that to be the norm from now until the end of September.  I have been very busy with more and more custom orders coming in from my event planners and my five Etsy shops.  Yes, I have FIVE shops! All a bit different and all wonderful handmade goodness, plus my newest adventure with custom craft kits and crafting supplies with the READY SET CRAFT KITS shop.

ReadySetCraftKitsSticker

And it is only going to get much busier as the weather warms up for weddings and more outdoor events.  In case you didn’t know – my Etsy shops are only a small portion of my business – I actually work as a vendor directly for 37 event planners and wedding planners all over the world.  Every spring and summer, I ship my designer party favors, all handmade and ready to go, to every corner of this planet- France, England, Australia, Hong Kong and everywhere else. My pinwheels are my biggest seller and I start making them in bulk as Spring and Summer approaches. I have actually made 500 pinwheels in one day.  Whew- oh the blisters!

Here is a pretty pinwheel themed party featuring

PASTEL PINWHEELS

The XL DOUBLE PINWHEELS really make this  party tablescape pop!  I offer these in

The PINWHEEL PRETTIES Shop as well.

I love the idea of topping these jars with mini pinwheels too.

All the sweets feature edible tiny pinwheels as well.  YUM!  That cake!

While I don’t make edible pinwheels for food, I certainly offer the real deal and they even spin.

 I love the idea of SPINNING PINWHEELS on a cake!  I offer these in my
