Where did I put that? Video tour of AHS craft area and lots of links for craft organization

Good morning (or afternoon/evening).  Hope all is well in your neck of the woods, here we are finally getting some winter, a bit of rain and wind, though it isn't going to last too long.  Have come to realize that 2012 will be known as the year without winter : )

Well, I have been working on videos (and some crafting), finished one finally, though it still isn't what I hoped it would be, and am working on another how to video, needless to say I am not happy with my first 10 attempts and will be redoing that video yet again...sigh.  It  is not easy to video and get all the information within 10 to 15 minutes! It is also hard to keep your images "on camera," don't even get me started on how many times I have heard myself say "mmmmm," just not good!

Anyhow, today I am sharing with you a video of my little crafting area, and lots of links for craft organizing: )    

Here is what my craft area looked like when it was first put together, about four years ago:

And then it went to this:

From Craft Area

And now it looks like this:

Yes, I know, lots of things in a small space, but I am happy in the area and even though I could move into a spare room, well, I have become attached to being in my cozy corner : ) Having such a small area forces organization, and yes, it is just as easy to "lose" things in a small area as a large area : )  My area is fairly well organized, it has to be or I couldn't move.

Finally, as promised, here is the video of my little crafting area:

Now, onto some links on fantastic craft room organizing!  If you are lucky enough to have a room, or if you just have to steal space from a room (like me), or if you have to store your things and craft out of a closet, well, there are sure to be ideas for you in the links below:

More storage ideas:  I loved the double-decker table storage, if I had room that would be in my area : )


Another great repurposing storage idea:  This is so cute and functional, loved it!

Crafty Storage Blog:  I have been following her blog for years, and while she isn't posting as much as she used to, there is just tons of ideas on her blog from years past (have this link on my side bar as well.)

Would love to see some of your craft areas, if you have pictures or videos of your space leave a link in the comments : )

I hope you enjoyed the post today, don't forget that I pin lots of things over at Pinterest and also try to post a link at least once a day on my Facebook page (some of the links end up here as well, but not all of them).

Enjoy the rest of your week, happy crafting : )

Loved the video and all the idea Jacquie!!! I am obsessed with looking up craft room organization so I am off to check out some of your links. Oh and I totally cracked up looking at your room at the beginning and now. It is like my house where what my hubby calls my 'craft virus' spreads through the house like crazy!!
