Must. Get. Crafting. Again.

I can't remember the last project I worked on. It's been waaayyy too long. My fingers are itching to sew and I'm missing my glue gun.
And although my lack of craftiness can partly be blamed on a busy summer and crazy kids' schedules, I (head bent in shame) have to take some of the blame.
A big part of the reason why I haven't worked on any projects is due to my unorganization.
Embarassing, but this is one of my craft drawers....

The corner of my bedroom and my closet shelves look pretty much the same.

Hard to work on a project at night when you know you're going to have to search for the supplies you need before you even begin.

So, I'm determined to become more organized or, well, at least know where all my craft supplies are at any moment.

Enter this cutie....

I got it from a friend who already had one and my husband is all set with his tools (yes, he has a workshop and has a garage for his stuff, but I don't resent that, not too much at least) and doesn't want it.

It has some really neat compartments and drawers that I think will be great for crafting supplies.

I can see all my bobbins in one place, scissors in another. Thread, beads, scrapbook paper, all with their own special place.

Sounds lovely.

And I can bring it around with me from place to place and store it out of site when it's not needed.

How perfect is that!!

I'd love to hear your ideas on how I can girl it up a bit-let me know what you think. I'll share again once I've got it all filled up with fun crafting lovliness.

Sadly, you aren't the only one with a messy craft area...I'll clean up mine, if you clean up yours? And, I have the same cart in my yard sale pile! I might just have to go pull it back out and fill it up.

Hello! Thank's for visiting my blog! How about spray painting all the outside and maybe add some vinyl words or designs?
