Spring Clean Craft Room Series with Carri!

I'm Carri~ AKA abusybee! Welcome to my Craft room!

I have to admit I am a messy scrapper! I have been paper crafting since 2009 and consider it a HUGE part of my life! I enjoy every second that I spend with paper! My Husband built me a great space to craft (you can see the process HERE and I  filled it with paper, tools and embellishments and I was quickly running out of space!  

I often do many quick clean ups but I knew I needed to completely organize everything and the sorting process began!

Clean and Organized!

The process: 

Paper before:

Paper After:

 Sorting of all supplies!

I sorted ALL my supplies! Buttons with buttons, ribbon with ribbon etc. I used boxes during the sort to help it go faster.

I also sorted everything once more by Theme. All Christmas, Halloween, Birthday, Baby ETC now have there own set of containers:

Now if I am creating for a theme like Baby I just pull the baby containers and everything I need is right there! 

My clean out took me 9 hours over a two day period. I thought that was pretty good! I also hauled out 3 laundry baskets of supplies that I no longer use! 

I am super happy with how organized my space is! Now if I buy new supplies I know exactly where they belong.

Here is a video showing my completed space!
