Crafting Organization Week: Craft Desk + FAB Giveaway!

craft organizationHappy Monday, friends! And Welcome to the Crafting Organization Week here on Craftaholics Anonymous®! This week I am going to focus on sharing ideas, tips, tricks, and products that can help you tame your craft room, craft desk, craft nook, or craft closet! With spring cleaning in the air {or maybe the nesting bug just bit me! haha}, I thought now would be a good time to tackle this topic.

First, I’m going to talk about one of my favorite organization products from The Original Scrapbox, and then I’m going to share a round up of links for different articles on organizing different supplies, such as ribbon, fabric, etc. AND THEN, there will be a GIVEAWAY at the bottom!! So keep reading!

Craft Desk: EZ View Desk by The Original Scrapbox 

craft room

One of the first items I would recommend when putting together a crafting space, is a craft desk. A work space where you can spread out and CRAFT!! I love the EZ View desk in my craft room because it holds SO much stuff! It has bins and drawers to hold and organize loads of crafting supplies. Plus it has a fantastic working space on top. I think the size of the work space is good. Its not too big {I can reach all of it while sitting down} and its not too little {I can spread my supplies out while I work}.

The bottom of the EZ View desk is interchangeable so you can get the shelves and bins {like what I have}, a shelf, file drawer, or drawers. That way you can design a craft desk that fits your crafting needs. I also got the extra set of drawers for my desk. This makes my desk a little higher and gives more storage. The height makes it easy to stand and craft at and it doesn’t hurt my back. {I know sometimes I’m in a hurry and don’t have time to sit down, so rather than hurt my beck bending over while I craft, this higher working station is perfect!

I will also point out my crib spring turned inspiration board in the corner. I simply took an old crib spring, spray painted it turquoise and hung it on the wall with nails and wire. Now I use clothespins to hand pictures and tidbits of inspiration.  

But the best feature of this craft desk is…..

The See Through Top!

I can see all the supplies stored in the top drawers of my EZ View desk! I like to put my most used supplies in the top {yes, I use Washi tape all the time!! hehe}

washi tape

I love looking at my colorful collection of washi tape through the top of the desk. I love to organize my supplies by color usually. Because I usually go to my stash of ribbon, fabric, or washi tape, I’m looking for a color. That’s my preference. I know other crafters have a different system that works for them, so find what works best for you and stick with it! If you decide that organizing by size or another characteristic works better for you, that’s awesome! Go for it!

You can see a couple of my bins are almost overflowing….that’s one of my scrap fabric stashes :) Notice that I upholstered my stools so they’re softer on the tushy. A must for any craft marathon! haha Did you see my $3 chandelier that I got at the Habitat for Humanity’s Restore up there? A simple coat of sunny yellow paint and its the cherry on top for my craft room! Love a good, simple makeover like that! Look for small things like that for your craft space that you can add a little spray paint or a simple makeover to add some personality and jazz ! You will find that those small details matter and take a space from okay to AWESOME!

    I love how you’ve organized your craft room! The fabric storage is so pretty! My favorite storage is probably re-purposing things for storage, like mason jars and tin cans!

    Jo says:

    My favorite craft organization trick is using a pants hanger to put rolls of ribbon on. I would love to win this to continue to organize my crafting supplies. Thank you for this opportunity.

    Bernice J says:

    My favourite organization tip?…well, I could actually use some help with my system of organization! I do have a few that work well, though. I keep all of my buttons and small embellishments in canning jars that I have placed in a rack on my wall. That keeps my space clear, all the small stuff corralled and it looks so pretty too!

    Stacy says:

    Love your craft room, no comparison to the little area I have in our basement

    Sheena B says:

    I would have to say my favourite organization tip is to use CD cases lined with magnetic paper to store my Spellbinders dies. Great way to keep them in place and tidy.

  8. 408

    I would love to win this! It makes all the fun craft stuff look so pretty.

    This would be so awesome to win! My favorite organizational tip is color-coding! I’m a little OCD .. but you can always find what you want much easier. :)

    May P says:

    Never count out the simplest way to organize, which is individual containers or bags. I love the plastic storage containers with multiple compartments, so that I can organize my beads and findings.

  12. 412

    I’m creating a craft room/office right now and love your organizational ideas!!

    Kim says:

    These units are absolutely beautiful. Functionality and attractiveness make pieces like this a true crafters delight. I would be thrilled to include this topper in my dream studio. I hope to have a space that will function as my studio/shop so I can invite customers to sit and watch as designs are created and fashioned, especially for custom work. How cool would that be?!!!

    Cindy R says:

    I love your craft room, the desk top would give me so much organization for my embroidery supplies.

    Angel Estes says:

    I removed the large canvas container from one shelf in my CraftBox and put a lazy susan (found it at Bed, Bath and Beyond) on the shelf. Now I can see all my ink pads – even the ones in the back – just by turning the lazy susan. I love it!!

    Liane says:

    I can not wait to have the space to have ALL of your stuff….. only another year until the young one goes to college! LOL

    Diane Haning says:

    We just moved to a new house and I finally got somewhere to make into my craft room. No more having to pick everything up just to have dinner. I have a room that is 24′x24′. It has windows on one side that are low. Great for light bad for storage. I am using 2 long skinny shelves turned on there side. I can store things in them and a padded top to use as extra seating or extra storeage.

    Mandy Bealer says:

    Chris Baker Cox says:

    I have a room for all of my crafting supplies. I have always had a problem with storing paper. So, I took a plastic tote and some 2 gallon, 1 gallon, and quart size Ziploc bags and sorted my paper by color family. It isn’t fancy, but it works for me. Plus, it was an inexpensive way to organize.

    Linda H. says:

    I had lots of shoeboxes and that’s what I am using to store most of my crafting supplies. I just put a label on the box and store them on the shelf with the label facing out. Works great!

    Debbie Craine says:

    I love the scrap rack way of organizing or at least I would if I could ever get my craft room set up correctly. Right now I’m like a turtle slowly but surely buying the needed cubes and desktops from Michale’s to get organized would love to have one of the Original Scrapboxe’s but the pocket book Screams painfully when i think too hard about one.

    Sue FitzGerald says:

    These look awesome

  49. 449
    Leah K. says:

    I often repurpose baby wipe containers. I label them with tape and a sharpie so that I can easily change the label if I decide to use it for a different supply. I also use photo storage boxes to store supplies because they can be left out in the open and look nice.

    I store my ink pads in an old wooden cassette tape rack- they fit beautifully.
