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.

While blog hopping recently, I came across this fantastic tip listed on Be Our Best.  Jill has compiled her Top 10 Blogging Tips in one place to help others out there in blogland.  Most of them I had heard of before.  But she had one on her list that I have only seen a couple times in practice, and have not heard a how-to do it before.Number 6: Add a clickable signature to your comments.If you add the following text to the bottom of the comments you leave for other bloggers, whatever text you insert for “Your Text Here” will be clickable.  You have to switch out “{“ and “}” with “<” and “>” then it will work.  Remember to also change the “Your Blog Address” part, LOL! {a href= }YOUR TEXT HERE {/a}Bonus Tip ~ I use Notepad to store all the html codes I use on a regular basis {the direct link code for my signature image, color codes, etc.}.  I added the above code to my Notepad page, edited it with my information, and saved it.  Now all I have to do …

Quick Kitchen Curtain Tutorial

How comfortable with sewing are you?  Would you like to a quick and easy project that you can do yourself to create a window valance/ruffle out of any fabric you find?  Here you go!  There are only three lines of stitching in this project.  Very little measuring, and gorgeous results.

This project actually started almost two years ago, when I painted our current kitchen a pale ice blue we had left over from painting a bedroom.  To try something different, I painted the ceiling of the kitchen a deep, high-gloss navy.  You can see just a little bit of the ceiling in the finished curtain picture below.  As much as I adore the contrast in the paint colors, trying to find a ready made curtain for the kitchen has proven impossible.  Lots of kitchen curtains are to frilly, not the right color, too white, so on and so forth.  Did I mention too expensive?
So, when I brought home this fabric from Sewing Club and was trying to figure out what 'it' wanted to be, I decided it would be perfe…
