C is For Craft
I know when I'm in the ‘process' of creating, I can be messy - but savvy creatives also know that being organised, helps ‘process' to go faster and smoother, and when your organised items used in the craft process are also better looked after and it's easier to know if you're running out of things.
So without focussing on any ‘individual' type of craft, what are the key ingredients to creating a great craft area?
Look at your key elements - how many core items do you use? Concentrate on differences in textures, sizes, colours, weights and bulk. Separate flat items and whether fabric, (remnants or in bolts), paper or card think on how best you can store these flat and with enough space to avoid folds and creases. Tiny items obviously need to be separated like with like and need to be housed in something with lids to avoid spillage. Avoid round containers, you will lose linear space. Square/rectangular containers can butt up against each other. Try and keep uniformity in size when it comes to stacking vertically. Label each container, especially if you cannot see through the boxes or plastic tubs.Tools
