A place for everything...

"A place for everything, and everything in it's place" is a motto I try to live by (normally I fall dramatically short of this goal).  In our current home (under 1,000 square feet) I have a small (tiny) corner to stash my stash of stuff.  I have to be very strict with myself on what is in the house and what is up in the attic.  Only current projects and things that melt reside inside.  One of my fantasies surrounding our future house is having a dedicate craft room, and I loooooooooove looking at how others have organized their craft spaces.  Here are some helpful articles, photos, and other stuff that I have found in my web surfing.  {Caution: the content of this blog post could be addictive in nature, and The Spunky Diva is not liable for any OCD tendacies that may develop as a result.}

This set of photos from All People Quilt show great organizing ideas that can be applied to any craft or space.  They also have many simple sewing projects that would make fabulous gifts!

The Domestic Diva's Sewing Room Organization Challenge is a great set of blog posts that will help motivate you to divvy up your stash.

Wondering how to organize all your scraps?  Wander over to Bonnie's Site at Quiltville and wonder no more!  This is a fabulous system for quilters to use, and I use a variation by keeping my scraps for Applique in containers by color and size.

Martha Stewart's site has several articles posted on different crafts that organize, and some of these would make cute additions to your craft space.

Even Good Housekeeping has an article, but not very extensive and not likely to help any true craft addict (but it did have 6 pretty pictures of the same itty-bitty craft space so I included the link, LOL)

I love to Google Sewing Room Photos, and just stare in envy at some of the great spaces.  That will get you into a whole other round of web surfing, LOL!

I did preface this post with the warning that I had an obsession about my future craft space.  It truly was a word of caution.  The Spunky Diva holds itself as not liable in the case you suddenly find yourself addicted to organizing or dreaming of organizing your craft space.

Christmas is coming...

Working through some Christmas items to list on, my Etsy store. I will be taking custom orders through Dec. 1st.  Also, getting back into the swing of things by participating in two craft fairs this holiday season. 

Planner Tabs and Dashboard

Post-it's tabs are super easy to add and move if you need to change where there are placed. I find that after placing them, I may find it easier to see them further over or on the other side of the page. 

Seeing so many different ways to use tabs on the top, sides, and bottoms of their planner has given me ideas. And when you find one way doesn't work great, switch the location until you do find the perfect location for the way you use them. 

After this layout, I moved stuff around....

Now the tabs for project lists, H's B-day, next Christmas are on the bottom of the pages. Nothing blocks the,  since the above layout I also switched the monthly layouts to behind the DISFish weekly pages I use.  The teal/blue month tabs are on the first page of the DISFish which includes that month's information.  The monthly tabs on the side are for the two-page monthly sprees by Daytimer that came with this binder. Helps to see the month laid out in that way when on the phone making appo…

Planner Sections

Order in my Palmer (right now) goes like this...Dashboard, wrapped in two verses printed on card stock, Food tracker, 2016 DIYFish yearly calendar for melds tracking,  Weekly (DIYFish Weekly Project) Monthly two-page layouts, Financial Freedom pages, Fitness pages, Project pages (special event planning pages), Church Team pages. 

I have a steno pad in the back pocket for the ongoing, never ending to-do list and what purchases are needed for those tasks. 
A second stern pad is tucked into the front pocket for me brain dump as I think of things during the day.
