I have a couple of ways that I organize things. I has some pictures, let me show you them!
This is the wall opposite the door of my craft room. There are three bookshelves with an amalgam of crap. Please don't mind the dog bed on the floor......That the 18lb cat lays on too. My computer desk and printer/scanner are to the left of the bookshelf on the left.
This is the one on the left. On top I have the plastic divided containers. There are 11 with beads, 2 with charms/pendants, 1 with vintage buttons (mostly glass), and 1 with "miscellaneous crap". I also have two "books" with small containers for Swarovski, and two containers for seed beads. I use a Dymo electronic label maker to label EVERYTHING! On the second shelf is my plastic box with drawers. Again everything is labeled. This is mostly jewelry making things, with some random stuff in it. Third and fourth shelves are office supplies. Bottom is books and magazines, divided into magazine holders and labeled. I only keep crafting books and magazines in here.
This is the middle bookshelf. On top are ikea jars that I used chalkboard paint on. There are markers, some art supplies etc. There is a square jar that has ribbon it in. I wrapped the ribbon around clothes pins. Works well for short pieces. Second shelf is snap together tubs by snapware. More ribbon, feathers, measuring cups, punches, moss, paint pens, colored pencils, dominoes, etc. Then what I did is remove the last two shelves. I then stacked sterilite drawers on the left and then the 12x12 sterilite drawers on the right. Again, labeling is my friend! In the 12x12 drawer area, drawer 1 and 2 are tape. Drawers 2, 4 and 5 are rubber stamping supplies. Drawers 7,8 and 9 are paper and embellishments. This does NOT include the 8 drawer scrapbook tower that is stuffed full lol. OH! and on top of the 12x12 thing, are these awesome things I found at Michael's made by Tim Holtz. They are like printers trays but made of paperboard so you can embellish them, and have removable containers inside. I cut paper to fit and podged it into the different little sections and use them for flat and small things.
This is the bookshelf to the right. The top 4 shelves are fabric. I just fold and stack. The bottom is just random crap that finds a home in here.
This is my super awesome ikea desk. I love it because it has a glass top and it's easy to clean. To the left of it, next to the fabric bookshelf is a stacked set of white mdf drawer things I got at Michael's. These have poly clay, pasta machine, altoid tins, my glitter and glitter glue etc. My desk has regular glue and other crap in the left. In the right side cabinet is sewing supplies. To the right of the desk is the like 8 drawer scrapbook storage that is full. lol. Oh and please excuse the mess on the desk, I was making miniature something!
This is in my closet. I found them at Walmart for $10. There were 4 cubes to a box, so I got two. I ended up epoxying the joints together cause it kept falling apart. This section is for yarn and tools. I may move the fabric in here too and the tools out to the bookshelf.
That's my area! It's usually pretty messy, so you got to see it on a good day! haha, my DH calls it "The Room of Death" because of all the halloween decorations/skulls/skeletons, which just makes me happy cause I love that stuff! Hope that gave you some ideas!
