I am really trying to get my crafty mojo going again, although before I can get down to any real crafting, I need to be able to step inside my craft room and actually see the floor!blush

Any papercrafters still around please? I need inspiration!

Go in there and give it a tidy up and make it look nice. Get some books from the library for ideas ! Come over here and I will give you a little push !

I always like to combine a bit of tidying with crafting. So could you cover some lovely boxes or magazine holders for your embellishments or paper craft beautiful labels for drawers?

That way the sorting is a bit more creative.

That said, toy storage has taken over my craft space for the foreseeable future so I envy you having a space that needs sorting!!

I have actually made a few cards but I have cheated and made up a few "kits" from a swap I did last year. It feel weird copying someone else's ideas but at least it has got me crafting again!

I agree with your idea Hoogally, in fact that is something I started doing a few years ago, I revamped a few paper folders and pencils pots, hoping that eventually my craft room would look more uniform and ordered as opposed to the mish mash of storage and clutter! LOL, that obviously never happened! blush

What did you buy DrewsWife? Nothing like some new crafty stash to give your crafty mojo a boost!wink

I looked back to see when it actually was I decorated those pots and stuff for my craft room. It was back in APRIL 2012
