It’s like a swamp: the creativity just drowns after the first couple of steps. So I decided to tidy up and organize. This is the «Before» photo:

I’ve searched in the past for the crafts corner organization ideas (see this link), and almost a year ago I came up with this system:

I am rather proud of it, because it survived for so long, which means it’s functional. It uses PAPPIS boxes from IKEA, 79 p each. 

The label has to be well thought through for the system to work well. In fact, the whole system has to be thought through before the labels are made. From my experience with my children, the system must be intuitive, convenient and easy to use, otherwise it will just create more mess rather than helping organization. 

I’ve made the following categories for my supplies: felt pieces, yarn (two boxes), embroidery floss, paints, stuffing (polyester wool), wadding, nature objects (twigs, bark, pine cones, shells), blank notebooks, finished gifts.  Then I just let the imagination take over. The label for embroidery floss is embroidered with the said floss, and the label for paints is painted. 

The labels for the yarn boxes feature fluffy yarn spirals, while the label for polyester wool box has a 3D picture of cotton made of cotton wool and a piece of an old T-shirt. (Unfortunately, the photos are not very good: what looks black on the label is, in fact, green).

Now I have a problem. For several months now I’ve had a box which I named «miscellaneous».
