Well, this has been a busy week with the Easter holiday having passed just short of a week ago and all the hustle and bustle of spending time with family and friends. With the rapidly improving sunny weather, here in Southern California, I have also spent a lot of my spare time this week doing a few “spring cleaning” activities.
I began organizing my craft tools and supplies (the physical and tangible ones) and shopping for either new tools or filling in what was missing or on my wish list. While I don’t have a huge amount of craft supplies or a dedicated room for crafting, it just seems that once you start acquiring more than a few tools that you’ll need to find ways to organize them.
I have a board on Pinterest dedicated to just this purpose and I enjoy finding pins that showcase craft rooms or craft organizing ideas that incorporate a vintage touch. However, creative vintage inspired craft storage and organization pins, just like many vintage items themselves, are a little more difficult to find.
The following are a few of my favorite pins. Hopefully, they inspire you to organize your craft tools and supplies and get encouraged to do some spring cleaning. (Clicking on the links will take you directly to my Pinterest account’s pin. Click on it to go to the original blog post.)
Shabby Chic Book Print or Antique Map Crafting Boxes With Bookplates
Chipboard Dress Forms for Organizing Ribbon or Twine
Wire Baskets For Frequently Used Rubber Stamp and Ink Pad Storage
Hopefully , in the near future, I’ll be able to create a blog post that showcases some of the great craft finds I found this week (for awesome prices as well) following a tip I have always used when I shop for other household goods and that is to shop off season for huge discounts.
