Craft Space Challenge

~ I would like to host a craft space challenge to all my crafty friends.
You will have 2 months to organize and make your craft space more efficient.
~ You'll need to e-mail me a current pic of your crafting space ~
At the end of the challenge, I'll post a on-line voting showing those that participated, with a before and after photo. And there will be fun Storage related items to be given away!

You don't need a blog to join, just the will to get organized!

Starting date is today.
Last day of challenge is June 30th.

That's 2 months.
~During that time I'd like to encourage you to share with the rest of us, on your blog, or by sending me a e-mail for me to post...storage idea's, your frustrations, long lost discoveries, how you stretched the penny on organizing, what worked, what did not, thoughts and idea's, and how it's affecting your crafting!
~Also you can join anytime, but the longer you wait to make the comittment... the less time you have to organize!

~ I will also post weekly update's of the progress and trials of those participating.

~ This a round about the condition of my studio. I admit my studio will never be fully organized as I wish, but I really need a better system!
~ Here's a start.

Also...here are some flickr sites that might help you to discover what will work for you!

Craft Rooms, Artist Studio's Pretty Organized.

Please feel free to tell your other blog friends and invite them to come join the fun!


  1. Hi!
    This is a challenge for me! I don't know if I dare to send in a before picture!! I'm going on vacation (and just leave the mess) for two weeks, but when I'm back, I'll come back here! Have a nice weekend!

  2. What a fun challenge! I just sent some pics to you - it's so messy it's embarrassing! :) (maybe this will properly shame me into getting it cleaned and organized...)

  3. what a fab idea! this would totally kick my butt into gear!!!!
    i just reorganized my room, but i still feel like its messy. is it ever done? can't wait to see everyones rooms.

  4. Oh I have been trying to organize so hard, this will help me to keep at it. My next post will show some of the chaos! Lets go! Kim

  5. Organization, it's a good thing. I will stay tuned for the after. The before looks familiar.

  6. Michelle- That is a good challenge. I think I may participate. Right now it looks like a bomb went off in my little basement area.

  7. What a neat idea! Wish I hadn't already organized my 'dump'last week..LOL! Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog!!:) Sandy

  8. oh, i so wish i had a room so i could play...i work out of several cupboards and create on the dining room table...my stuff is always put away, otherwise the cats would take off with everything!!!

  9. Hi Michelle
    What a great challenge. I have a craft room, however, it is not yet finished. But all of my goodies are there. Don't think this would apply to your challenge as we also use it as a storage space. However, I will see what kind of photos I can send.

    On your previous post you mentioned you were having email problems. I emailed you my mailing address so that you could mail me "The Little Prince", please let me know if you received my email.



    PS: I also read where I got tagged. (My first TAG! Yipee!) I will be posting tonight.

  10. I have been working on my craft space for months now. I was making progress than it exploded again. I worked on my space last week but I didn't take any pictures. It doesn't look too bad now but that is because I boxed up 3 boxes of stuff to go through..but I will take pictures later today and email you. I still have lots of organizing to do.

  11. omg...love your space. You aren't holding back!! Showing our spaces is kind of like standing on stage naked...it really shows the good, the bad and the ugly!!

  12. Well, I'm in. I'll send you my pics in the am. To both of us Good Luck.

  13. I read this post just in time. I am going to begin getting my craft space in order this week! Can't stand the mess any longer! Great idea for a challenge. I will send pictures soon.

  14. What a great idea. I'm tempted to do this but scared to commit.

  15. What a great idea for a challenge! I am waaaaay to embarrassed to show pics of my space. It's shoebox small, so think tiny Tokyo apartment and you'll know all the organizational challenges I face :) The ceiling is looking pretty attractive to hang shelving from :)

    I love looking at before and after pics though and esp. all the unique storage ideas!

    Also.. I love your space right now. What a wonderland full of treasures! Just a fabulous place to create!

  16. I posted my before pics on my blog and emailed you a couple.

  17. OK, Michelle! I just sent you an email about my "redo" as well as posting it on my blog! See what you think!!

  18. Oh this is a good idea. I'm not committing mind you. I'm not going to set myself up to fail! I did do a MAJOR studio fumigate a couple of months ago and I've managed to maintain it. I still need to implement all kinds of systems for storing things. Boy, it's a lot of work. Thank you for those flickr links. Can't wait to check them out.

  19. Always a "Day Late and a Dollar Short!" What can I say! I'm finally getting caught up on my important mail after a week in the hospital! Your challenge is right up my alley!! Since hurting my foot last year, getting around and putting things away has been really a "pain" soooooo.... Let's just say your pictures actually look neat and organized to me! My pictures are down right scary! LOL!!

    Heather from the Theatre Troup!!


Thank you so much for stopping by.
Your comments make my day! :)
