Craft Clean Up

Sorry I've been MIA lately. I decided to tackle the mess piled in my craft room. It was turning into the the catch all room. So on Tuesday, I introduced my 3 year to Moon Sand (a parent's curse but kids love!) and I went on the organization/purge train while he played away.

Today I can actually see the countertops and floor! But when you clean up one mess, then you tend to create piles of other messes...at least for me anyway. So there's still lots to do down there! And that doesn't even include decorating the space to make it look pretty to create in. I'm blessed to have such a great place to work but it's a basement with no windows...so it needs a little sprucing up!

If you are like me, I try to find easy and cheap ways to organize. And yesterday I found the cutest containers to organize my boys' craft area. Why not visit the garden area at your local home improvement store? I found these cute colorful plastic pots for $1.25 each at Menards. Great for keeping the art supplies all in one place. I drilled a hole on the side for easy hanging on a chicken wire frame. They can easily be removed so you can have the container by your side for easier reach.


Got any fun and simple ways to keep clutter under control?

  1. I've got the itch to organize too - maybe I'll get there as soon as the projects I've got going already are done! Love the bright colors of those organizers/pails - very kid-fun!

  2. Hi my sweet Kindra!
    Just dropping in to say hi and I see you are a busy girl...good for you for de-cluttering!
    I need to do that in the worst way..I hear you about when you start to clean it up you leave messes all around in other places..its kind of like musical-mess! lol
    It looks like you've found a great way to help with those ocntainers though, and they look so nice and colourful too!
    I wanted to tell you that I found my little addition to my mailbox and Ill have it up and doing what it was made to do as soon as hubby puts a screw in the rusty addition and puts it on the brick outside..and I'll show-and-tell you!
    Have a great day dear!! xoxo

  3. These little containers look so cute hanging from the chicken wire. Great idea, Kindra! My craft closet is starting to overwhelm me. I need to do a little organizing this weekend.

  4. That's such a cute idea! When I'm cleaning out a space I tend to create piles of things in other places too. It's like a never ending cycle!
