Craft_Paper_ShelvesIt is that time of year, after the busy holidays for our studio to get organized so we can stay as creative as possible. A few months ago we shared our new office space as I brought three others onto my team and needed to move the craft space and add desks and work spaces. It is always a trick to keep the office tidy and functioning and have the space to store materials and create. Believe me, we can make a royal mess. Since we work with our large stash of paper everyday, it was most important to keep all of the paper both in sight and in order of color. We use both 12×12 and letter sized paper and these paper shelves that we found at Michaels were the perfect solution. As you can see from the new photos here, we have added another shelf and just ordered two more. To add to ease of keeping all of our papers in place, we added chalkboard tags inside of the shelves where we can write the paper colors or types. For those of us that just need a place to store our craft materials and organize our scrapbook paper, paint, markers and yarn, you must check out these nifty craft storage systems.

My project is to complete a set of spring ranunculus flowers where I can share the Ranunculus SVG with you. Here is what I created. Hope you are inspired to both organize and create! ~ Lia
