What I learnt from my years of experience as a crafter and creator, your workshop can get messy easily. A few years back when I first moved to our new home, my workshop was all over the place. Everything was everywhere. Once I started creating more cards, everything got chaotic. Especially during Christmas season. So after that I decided it was time to tidy everything up. It took me a few days, but I finally got everything in the right places. If my workshop is messy, then I feel that I am messy and I can’t think straight, therefore I can't work. So I always keep everything in its place, unless I’m creating of course.
Here are a few tricks I use to make things easier.
2. Categories! Along with the boxes, you can categories your materials. For example, all Christmas materials can go in one box. If you have certain things you use for weddings, christenings etc you can separate that in categories.
4. Labels! Make your own labels and label each box. Believe me it makes life easier, as I always forget where everything is. Especially if you have lots and lots of small things.
