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 not crafting, I can be found chasing my 2 small {but very energetic!} boys or playing with my new baby girl. Or shoe shopping... because you can never have too many shoes! Happy crafting! ♥

    Susan says:

    I have a spare bedroom that I use for my crafts. I’m constanly reorganizing to make it easier to find everything. I do papercrafts, paint and sew. That makes for alot of supplies to organize.

    Justasiam says:

    I am so in need of a class like this…I need to do something drastic with my crafting space!

    connie says:

    I have a whole room to myself as a craft room, but I usually craft in my living room so I can watch tv and be around the family. I don’t really have space to actually craft in my craft room. It’s more of a walk in closet for craft items. I would love to find a way to work in a good crafting space.

  8. 108
    Justasiam says:

    Oh, I forgot to tell you where I craft…I have my stuff stashed all over the house in different areas. I am in the process of deciding where I will put a little crafting space, but at the moment it is at the kitchen table since my desk is too small.

    sara-lynn says:

    my craft room is also my office. while I do a pretty good job at keeping craft on its side and office on the other, I’m a good craft supply/scrap supply collector and need to get it organized so I can see what I have and use what I have (instead of just buying more) Would love to win this class!

    Lynne says:

    I can always use help with organizing! Although I have to admit that if you put things away right after you use them, it helps a lot.

    I would love to find a better way to organize our Girl Scout troops’ crafts. We need easy access, visibility and the ability for multiple people to to retrieve and put away quickly and easily. Plus we have to secure everything under lock and key when we leave our meeting space.a tall order. We could definitely use some professional help. Best of luck to all!

    I paint in my kitchen on a special table in a dead space not big enough for a full kitchen table and four chairs but big enough for a thin set of shelves and a table. It’s not ideal but it’s all the space I have at the moment. Organization is the key.
