We've added a few friends to the get organized challenge group and you'll definitely want to get to know them! In fact, one of them could be you, with a different name of course.
One of the biggest challenges with getting our craft supplies organized and keeping them organized is that there is no "one size fits all" organization solution. Over the last few months I've been talking a lot about "What type of crafter" you are. Understanding this about yourself will make it easier to choose organization tools that will serve you well.
I thought it would be fun to create a few new girls to help describe each type of crafter.
Meet Cathy Craftroom and her dog Crop.
Cathy loves to scrapbook, but only at home. Her crafting space is defined and her supplies always stay put, except of course when she's using them. Her dog, Crop is a regular fixture in her craft room. Are you Cathy?
Meet Sophia Cropalot
Sophia has a dedicated space for crafting at home, but she also enjoys attending crops, classes and retreats. It's important to Sophia that her supplies are accessible at home, but also easy to travel with. Should you be changing your name to Sophia?
Karen Kraftabout can be found crafting just about anywhere.
Karen's got some crafting storage space at home, but she moves around, sometimes at the dining room table, sometimes in the TV room. She also enjoys going to crafting events and hanging out with her crafty pals. Her supplies get put away each time she uses them. Part of her home crafting time is spent pulling things out and putting them away. Do you craft like Karen?
Mary Mobilmaker - always crafts away.
That's Mary at the end of the crop table in the lavender dress. Mary's got a lot going on at her house and no space to craft. Crafting is "her time" to get away from home and focus on scrapbooking and cardmaking. Her supplies are always packed and ready to go. Are you a mobile crafter like Mary?
