Hello craft buddies and welcome to my home office and craft room! As someone who is blessed to craft for a living, I was so thankful to get a space in our home dedicated to my content creation business. Scroll down to see the full video!

In August 2022, we moved into a new home with an extra bedroom that I could make my own. In January 2023, I thought I had created a great space – and I did for a time – but after using the room for a full year, I learned what worked and what needed to change.

Today I’m sharing the process from start to finish of my recent overhaul and declutter of my space. I’m also sharing a full craft room tour where I run Whiskey & Whit to make all of my YouTube Videos, DIYS, Cricut Crafts, and more! I also have a full list of supplies and items I used at the end of this post you can reference if you’d like to get anything I share. Let’s get into it!

Why is an organized craft space worth it?

Have you ever looked at your workspace and felt overwhelmed by the clutter and chaos? It’s not uncommon to feel that way, especially when you’re busy and on-the-go like I am. I spend most of my waking hours in my craft room office and at the end of 2023, I knew something had to give.

I’m sure you know that an organized space can do wonders for your productivity, creativity, and overall well-being. And that’s something I needed – STAT.

I knew I needed some sort of separation of my work from our life as a family. Both my husband and I work from home, making it easy for both our jobs to bleed into our time together – not the best! I needed to be able to fully be present when I was working and to fully step away when I was not.

First and foremost, an organized space can help reduce stress and anxiety. When you’re surrounded by clutter and disarray, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and frazzled. However, when you take the time to declutter and organize your space, you’ll feel a sense of calm and control. This can lead to lower stress levels and a more positive outlook on life.

In addition to reducing stress, an organized space can also boost your productivity and creativity. When you have a designated place for everything, you’ll spend less time searching for things and more time actually creating. This can help you stay focused and on-task, leading to more joy-filled crafting. Plus, an organized space can help spark creativity and inspiration. When your space is clean and tidy, you’ll feel more motivated to work and create.

Overall, having an organized space is crucial for your mental and emotional well-being, as well as for your productivity and creativity. So take some time to declutter and organize your space – you might be surprised at how much of a difference it can make!

Craft Room Organizing Tips

Organizing a craft room can be an incredibly daunting task (trust me I just did it), but with a little creativity and planning, it can also be a fun and rewarding experience.

Here are some tips to help you get started:
First and foremost, it’s important to assess your space and determine what kind of storage solutions will work best for you. This might include shelves, cubbies, baskets, or drawers, depending on the types and amount of supplies you have. Also, consider shopping other rooms of your home to see what you can grab and put in your craft space. Consider grouping similar items, such as all of your vinyl and paper products in one area and all of your felt and fabric in another, to make it easier to find what you need.

Another helpful strategy is to label everything. Whether you use a label maker, cut Cricut vinyl labels as I did, or simply print out labels on your computer, labeling your supplies and storage containers will make it easier to identify what you have and where it goes. In my craft room, I used the font Lemon Milk to label everything. You might also want to color-code your storage solutions to make it even easier to find what you need at a glance.

Finally, don’t forget to decorate your craft room in a way that inspires you. Hang up artwork or photographs that make you happy, display your finished projects on shelves or bulletin boards, or add some plants or other decorative elements to bring some life to the space. The more inviting and inspiring your craft room is, the more likely you are to want to spend time there creating. For me that’s inspirational signs, photos of my family and YouTube friends, plus a Taylor Swift-inspired shelf!

One of my most-asked questions about my filming is – how do you get the shots above your hands when you craft? It’s this contraption called a Glide Gear. It allows you to add lights and a camera to film.

In conclusion, organizing a craft room can be a fun and rewarding experience if you approach it with creativity and planning. By assessing your space, choosing the right storage solutions, labeling everything, and decorating in a way that inspires you, you can create a craft room that is both functional and beautiful.
