Keep It Neat and Tidy!

Well, I've been spending the last few days cleaning my craft room. What a disaster! Papers, ink, stamps, ribbon, charms, etc, etc, etc, all over the place! Now I know I have that photo - but where? And where are my favorite scissors? Ok - it's time. My creativity is being stifled by this mess. Time to organize. I'm fortunate enough to have my own craft room, but unless I keep it neat and tidy, it isn't very inviting. This is what it should look like!

Yes, it's true - When you have a nice neat organized place to work you can concentrate on what you want to do and not on what you're looking for. Your space doesn't have to be large or strictly devoted to crafting, as long as your crafting supplies are in quick reach. Many crafters simply use the kitchen or dining room table for their work space, and then it is even more important to have your stuff in some type of containers, legibly labeled, so you can take anything you need to your work table before you start. So get going, look around, and see how you can improve your workshop.
