Tips To Make Your Craft Space Function Better

No matter how often I think that I am finished improving my craft space, I find something new that needs tweaking.

Usually it’s simple changes that I find make the biggest difference.

I am all about convenience.  I like stuff close to me so I don’t have to walk to get something I would use all the time.  I know that sounds lazy, but really it is time efficiency.  That’s how I am selling it anyway.

I have a few tips to help your craft space be more functional.

1} Use a small can or cup to hold your supplies that you use constantly.  Like scissors, bone folder, glue bottle, piercing tool.  I keep these things on this bar that I got at IKEA.  It has 4 buckets that I can organize tools in that I want close by.

2} If you are right handed put your most used stuff to the right side of you.  I am right handed.  All of my punches, ink pads, and some of my markers are stored to the right of me.  I don’t think I could function if it was any other way.

3} Lighting is super important to me.  I like to make sure that when I am crafting I can see what I am doing and that I can see my colors.  All the bulbs in my craft room are DayLight Bulbs.  They aren’t cheap but they are worth it.  You can get them at Lowe’s.

4} A TV, an iPad or your phone.  I think every craft space functions better with entertainment.  I love watching TV or a movie while I am crafting.  I usually put on something that I don’t REALLY have to pay close attention to.  So I am going to give you my list of these types of shows.  If you don’t have Netflix you should get it.  It’s awesome and inexpensive and you can watch it anywhere.

I hope that this helps you get some crafty mojo going and gives you a few ideas on how you can function better in your craft space.

Leave me a comment with your favorite TV show or movie to watch while you craft.  I am always looking for something new to watch.
