Thanks for all the fantastic craft organization suggestions. Keep them coming! (if you want to enter the giveaway, though, please make sure to comment on that post, not this one). I want to give you a little glimpse of how things currently look, at least on one side of the room.
I put this Expedit bookcase from IKEA up in September, but it has taken me months to finally get it somewhat organized. (I *love* the Expedit. I have another one – 2×4 in this same room, and two more in the boys’ room – a 2×4 and a 4×4. Their room is tiny, and the Expedit offers a versatile way to store a lot of stuff. I use their bookcases for books, toys, and even clothes [using drawer inserts that you can also buy at IKEA]).
Click on the picture to see full notes about what is on which shelf. It’s a start. The truth is that most of my yarn lives elsewhere, as do most of my sewing books and about half of my knitting books. I also have at least half my fabric stored in the basement, and another assortment in my bedroom closet. But what I am currently using or about to use (or have delusions or using soon) is all in this room.
