Evolution of the Craft Room!

>Someday I'll have a whole room for my crafts! But for now, I must make do with what little space I have..and appreciate it! Anyway. I had all my crafts on a table behind our couch in the living room, but it just became a big pile that was getting higher and, I decided to move it up to Gideon's room, and after that wasn't working out (not enough space) because he could reach and get into it, I moved it all in to 1/2 of his closet. Jessica and her AWESOME organizing skillz, helped me organize it, and with a couple minor adjustments today (shoe rack in top) it is juuuuuust right! I have to hang a couple things and then it'll be perfect! I'm so excited..that's why I'm sharing this with you! Here are some little tips for your craft room too!
~Use a tension rod for a ribbon holder
~Loose ribbon I tied to a few O rings and sorted by color, they are hanging in the corner by my lamp. And the little pieces I have in a little jar.
~I put a shoe rack that I got f/Big Lots in the top of the was the perfect size, I still need a couple more baskets, and to label the baskets, makes for easy organizing of my projects.
~I got the perfect size shelf to organize stuff onto from a friend.
~I have a magnet board that I'm going to drill a couple holes in, tie some ribbon through, and hang..I got a pack of 3 for $2.88 at Wal-Mart..they work great (and MUCH cheaper than buying sheet metal f/Lowe's)
>I especially like this because I can open the doors, work on my crafts, close the doors and walk away when I need to take a break,w/o having to put away my project! Now I'm happy and Gideon still has his room!

A Quick and Easy Project

So this was a quick and easy project.
~I got the letter from JoAnn's, chose my scrapbook paper and traced the letter onto it, then cut the letter out of the paper. Glued the two together and sanded the edges. Antiqued the edges, added a sticker and some ribbon and Voila! My kitchen is decorated in Pineapples and that is where I will hang this! It would probably be cuter in brighter colors if you are making one!
