10 Steps to Organized Craft Rooms and Studio Workspaces

1. 4.

I found some articles with tips and ideas to help you get organized. Creative people can often be messy. I am most productive in organized chaos. I like to see my supplies and raw materials. Many of my projects stem from the visualization of them.

Found this great link at Craft Resources using “Google” search. The people over at Get Creative Show .com had a business seminar and here is what some of their contributors like, Karen Booy , Ewe & Me Pattern Co.,
Crafting the American Dream
, and CRAFTLINK Newsletter shared.

  1. Separate Work Areas
  2. Think about Storage
  3. Easy Tool Access
  4. Lighting
  5. Workspace
  6. Ambience (i.e. Music)

Karen further advises in order to keep things organized…

  1. Find Creative Storage Solutions
  2. Be realistic
  3. Put it Back
  4. Tidy up

I recognize the need for balance and creativity in my life. Perhaps it’s because my 50th birthday is fast approaching. It’s cause to stop and pause to figure out the best way to get the most out of every aspect of my life. Creativity comprises a huge part of my life so I’ve decided to undertake this challenge.

If you’d like to join me on this undertaking stay tuned…I’ll be bringing you more tips and resources as well as documenting my progress. Wish me Luck!
