Like that title? I think many of us have this idea that craft room organization begins with having a beautiful craft room or studio, preferably well-lit so we can photograph our projects for Instagram. Oh wait, is that just me? ;)

Seriously, though, many of us do think that more space will equal more organization, and it’s no wonder. When I Googled the phrase, “craft room organization”, I found no less than  8,290,000 results and the images revealed large spaces with plenty of shelving and cute, color-coordinated baskets that made me want to drop everything and drive over to IKEA.

But the truth is, having a craft room will not make you more organized. I’m talking about the real problem behind our disorganization today on my Time, Money, and Organization podcast. This is the third in a series where we have tackled three of our biggest frustrations concerning crafting and creativity.

In the episode above, I mentioned The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up which is about the Kon Mari method. I recommend this with some caveats that I don’t agree with everything the author mentions when it comes to “tidying up” but there are grains of truth, some of which I mentioned in the podcast and as well as in the workbook.

I also created a Craft Rooms & Organization board on Pinterest that you can look through. I’m including organizational ideas as well as craft room layouts to give us inspiration. Click the image below to check it out!

If your craft room or area feels beyond help, definitely check out Dana White’s book, Decluttering at the Speed of Life. She is hilarious and real when it comes to the pain of decluttering. And her method completely takes away the mess that is usually left behind for a decluttering project. Get her book here.

I hope this series has been an encouragement to you. It’s been fun writing these episodes and recording them in our office. My husband probably never thought the microphone he used in his garage band days would end up being used for his wife’s podcast series. Isn’t life funny that way?

Thanks once again for your support of Little Girl Designs—It’s a blessing to be able to encourage and help you in your creative journey. Have a lovely {and creative} day!
