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?

    I have a crafting room that I love, but it is not as organized as I would like it to be…I am slowly getting there but would LOVE some ideas for organizing my space! Thanks so much!!!

  2. 52

    I craft in my sewing room, which right now is completely disorganized! It’s a beautiful room with a vaulted ceiling and tons of windows, but no storage space whatsoever, and no walls to put storage! I’d love to win a spot :)

    When I knit, I craft all over the house, but most other crafts are done (and everything is stored) in a bedroom that is part craft room, part my office/study location, and part guest room when we have anyone over. It is a very multi-functional room and I would love to figure out how to organize it so it all has a place when we have guests!

    I craft in my sewing room. I am trying to reorganize it and make it work better for me. Piles of junk (supplies) everywhere. I do spend more time looking for the supplies and trying to make room than crafting or sewing right now. I must get this mess under control. This would be a great way to begin.

  5. 55

    I craft in my office or at a friend’s house. My office is part craft room so that is handy :)

  6. 56

    I am in a spare bedroom and am CONSTANTLY looking and sifting through things. This really annoys me because I really am an organizing enthusiast. I really need to figure out a way to BETTER organize my things. Thanks so much for the chance at this great gift!

  7. 57

    I usually craft in my craft room since that’s where all my supplies are!

  8. 58

    I craft where ever I can find a large enough spot for the project at hand. I’m pretty flexible especially since I don’t have an organized space at this time. Someday. :)

    I just re-painted and started organizing my sewing room/shop in our house and I am sooo stuck right now! So much stuff and no idea of how to store it effectively!

  10. 60

    I craft just about everywhere. Typically the dining room table, but lately I’ve been using my desk for sewing.

    Barbara MacAskill

    I usually craft in my bedroom. I will soon have a brand spanking new craft room that I can decorate how I choose to and will be able to leave a project out if I need to quit for the day. It is going to be so nice to not have to clean up in the middle of a project. I would love to win entry to this class because I am going to need lots of tips on organizing my new area! Thanks for the chance to attend this class!

  12. 62

    I craft in my home office/craft room.

    I craft all over my house. I have a table I use for my Pampered Chef Shows that I bring up stairs to cut patterns out when I sew. My sewing machine and serger sits on tv trays when i am using them in a small room with my computer, futon, file cabinet and tv. My silhouette is on the kitchen table. All my suuplies are either in the guest bed room on the bed or in my sewing tote. So i definitely need some organization.

    Rachel B

    I really need this! I do my crafting in the basement. My darling kiddos call it a huge mess!

  18. 69

    I am in the midst of organizing and creating a “playroom” in a spare room that has become a junk room over the last few years. I definitely could use lots of ideas for how to organize my play supplies as they keep expanding. Also for now they are in different rooms with art supplies one room,sewing another,etc. Thanks for the chance to win this class.

  19. 70

    I craft all over.. In the office, on my kitchen table, the floor in the living room… Sounds like I need help!

    Haley Grossman

    I have an office/craft room but its totally cluttered and unorganized so i drag everything out to the living room every time i have a project…crazy.

  21. 72

    I have a little craft corner that is currently all cleared out so we can redo the floors. I’d love to re-vamp all my storage to better organize it— every time I think I have things under control, I can’t find stuff and I know it’s not working! The class would be perfect!

  22. 73

    I craft in my 8×8 laundry room/home office that also has my dog’s potty pads in it as it’s the only room with easily washable floors. It’s hard to craft with the never ending laundry piles!

  23. 74

    I have taken our dining room over – it is now my scrap room

  24. 75

    I’ve always considered myself organized. There’s a ‘home’ for everything is what I say. Now it’s more like organized chaos. I have a lovely sewing cabinet which keeps most of my sewing together. I have a scraproom that is becoming a warehouse of some of my other craft things. Help!

  25. 76
    Barbara Keckler

    I have a craft room just for creating!

  26. 77

    I craft in a shared office space with my husband, who also build and paints miniature models! It’s only a 10×10 room, so, yes it is as cramped as you think it is!

  27. 78
    Lisa A

    I craft all over the house, but mainly on the kitchen table or in the guest room.

  28. 79

    I took over the office!

  29. 80

    Oh what a great give away
    I have a whole craft room but end up creating elsewhere in the house because the room is so unorganized

    All over my house, at my mom’s house, the back yard lol and sometimes in the car.

  32. 83
    Cheryl S

    I craft all over the house: don’t have a specific location. My “stuff” is stored all over, boxes well camaflaged in the living room, in the garage, in an outdoor storage bin, and in a closet. I sew and craft on the kitchen table. Therefore, there is no organization!!! Help me!!

    Loretta T

    I craft every where, sew in old dining area, knit and crochet in living room while watching tv, cut fabric on bed, use cricut in kitchen, I always have a bag of something in the car. I do have a “sewing room” but it is far away from family and in the cold, dark basement.

  34. 85
    Allyson D

    I craft on my dining room table. Hoping to move to a more permanent place within the week. Right now, it’s the best place to be able to watch my kids and work at the same time!!

  35. 86

    I craft at my kitchen table.

  36. 87
    Margaret Diez

    I do all my crafting and sewing in my craft room. It’s pretty well organized for my needs, but my two closets are an accident waiting to happen. I could sure use some ideas to make my supplies in e closets more organized, accessible and presentable.

  37. 88

    My craft room is my dining room which is currently set up as an office/craft room space.

  38. 89

    I craft anywhere and everywhere. My dining room table is my number one spot. Then the living room floor.

    I made sure I’d have my own craft/art/photography studio when we built our house. But I think I spend more time organizing than doing! I really could use this :)

  40. 92

    I have an *almost* studio. My husband is working on it in his very small amount of spare time. :) I’m using half and figuring out to the best of my ability to BEST and most usable way to organize the space. :)

  41. 93

    i could soooo use some help organizing my studio!!!!

  42. 94

    I craft in my bedroom now. I have just recently been confined to a wheelchair and am having to relearn how to organize and craft, I need these classes. Thank you for this giveaway.

  43. 95

    Currently we are getting ready to move so whenever I craft it is usually anywhere I can space in our house- lol sometimes you just need to craft amid the mess :)

  44. 96

    i would love to craft if i could get more organized… help!

      Oops…forgot to answer the question. LOL!! I have a craft room, however, I find myself crafting more and more on my dining room table. Not only do I have more space, but my cats seem to have taken over my desk in my craft room.

  46. 98

    I craft in our 10×13 office/craft room/sewing room/guest room. It’s awful.

  47. 99

    In a cluttered “studio” in our breakfast nook. It’s quite the disaster.

  48. 100

    I usually craft at my kitchen table.
