Do you feel like you spend all of your creative time sifting through creative clutter?

Does it feel like as soon as you haul out your supplies, it’s time to put them away again?

Are you regularly surprised to find supplies or tools you forgot you had? Or worse, are you
regularly frustrated when you can’t put your hands on the things you are sure you have?

Do you feel like your creative space (or the lack of it) zaps your creativity?

Hi! I'm Linda, the craft addict behind Craftaholics Anonymous®, a craft blog. Crafting is cheaper than therapy, right? When I'm not DIYing something, I can be found taxiing around our 4 crazy kids or working out. Or shoe shopping... because you can never have too many shoes! Happy crafting! ♥

    My husband purchased an armoir off of craigslist and then remodeled it with peg board, lighting and a ribbon spool for me. It’s in our living room so that I can hang out with the family while being creative. Then when I’m done, I can close it all up and it looks beautiful!

    I am lucky enough to have a craft room but it doubles as a home office. My craft supplies far surpass the amount of true office supplies in the room though! The tiny room is to the point of bursting. Does the class magically give you more square footage??? ;) Excited about the class as I have issues organizing paper.
