So here we are at Day Five of my studio re-org, clean-up, and tour. This is the last section of my studio to share, because this is my most often-used workspace, and consequently, the messiest. Before I started tidying up, it looked like THIS: Now, it’s usually not THIS bad, but yes…usually it is messy. Boxes of product on the floor, project leftovers in trays,Â and little bowls of loose gew-gaws on the table. Anyway, as I was cleaning up […]

Because the closet is on the opposite wall of the crafting tables/workstations, I keep things in here that need to be accessible but not “handy,” if you know what I mean. On the left, there […]
Ok, I got this one from Tipnut, but the woman in the video is Marilyn Bohn. She is an organizing maniac, and has several videos on YouTube on how to organize….well, everything. However, today I’m sharing the fabric folding video. It’s simple and easy, and there may be hope for my fabric stash yet…. I’ll be sharing more from Marilyn…. gotta get that craft room in order!
