I’m starting a new mini series on how I’m organizing my studio! Here’s the thing, I’m a very right brained person when it comes to organizing or keeping clean. While I love a nice clean clutter free space, it’s just not how I work. I’ve developed my own type of organization that works for me so I thought I’d share it through this little series along with how I just re-did our home studio (which I share with my husband).
First, let’s talk travel storage. Storage that’s perfect to move around the house or out of the house!
Creative Options sent me some of their awesome craft storage solutions and I have to say, I’m impressed! I have tons of tote bags that I usually throw everything in to take with me, but these provide so much more stability and organization without much more effort. I thought it would be fun to show you how I use each of the pieces.
First up is the Large Signature 5-Pocket Tote (available in-stores at Hobby Lobby and online at Joann and Walmart). This is my general “what I’m working on” tote. I love that it’s soft but has some sturdiness to the sides so it doesn’t fall over when I move it. I can still “throw” stuff in there but it doesn’t get lost at the bottom of a soft bag that swallows it when I try to search for something.
I also put my coloring books and pencils in there for when I want to play around while watching tv!
This is the perfect memorabilia keeper for me! I have loads of memorabilia all over the place and when I am working on a scrapbook page or mini album I have to look in 10 different places to find a ticket stub or card. This keeps them all safe and in one place. There’s even a removable zipper pouch that I can keep smaller items (like those ticket stubs) in.
The Crochet Tote in “Viva La Pink” (available at Joann) is my current seasonal favorite because it’s the perfect size and shape to hold my gift wrapping supplies.
The Total Tote in “Vineyard” is my go to front seat or travel solution for making mini albums or traveler’s journals on the go.
I love how sturdy it is, the size and that it keeps everything I need in place without having to dig around. Because if you’ve ever had to dig to find a tiny paperclip while crammed in an airplane or car seat you know what I’m talking about!
I feel like all of these products have just enough pockets and spaces to keep things organized without having too many for my scatterbrain to get lost in. Since I’m sharing “studio” space I often move around the house and moving big boxes around just doesn’t make sense!
