It’s a new month and Spring has sprung here in Houston (I have the sinus infection to prove it). It is so tempting to jump on the spring cleaning band wagon. Instead of sharing tons of pictures of beautifully organize, already perfect spaces, I thought I’d dig into my Craft Room Organizing Pinterest boards. My plan is to share some ideas that are really fast, inexpensive and easy to take action on, like right now! The picture above is an idea I found today from Domestic Adventure and it looked so easy! (You have to check out that original post, the before and after is awesome!) Just mount a magnetic strip on the wall (they are usually in the kitchen section for holding knives) and use it to hold your bobbins, scissors and even presser feet! She does make a good point about the bobbins getting magnetized and the problems it could cause for computerized sewing machines though. So use caution when implementing this idea.
I love the idea of making good use of the vertical space in your sewing room/creative area and clean off your sewing table. I know that anything around my sewing machine is in danger of being pushed to the floor by the project I’m working on.
By the way, I’m also sharing these tips on my Instagram account and I actually haven’t come up with a cool hash tag yet! But when I do I’ll be sure to share it here!
Also if you want to feel better about the state of your space, check out #honestcraftroomcleanup for some great before and after clean up pictures!

Happy stitches and happy spring!
