Okay, so I have lots of pictures!!

First of all, I finished my craft organization (at least to the level I felt I needed to!)

Here's my sewing table, and in the background the other desk with my candle can, current cut pattern, and... well, this one is a bit odd, but a coffee set.


A bit of labeled tins - sewing supplies!


Fine arts rack (usually in the bottom is my big bag of craft acrylics, but I was painting!)


Labeled shelves in my craft desk! From Top: Scrapbooking Supplies, Carboard & Cardstock, Ephemera & Printed Papers, Glues & Tapes (in the purple box), Rubber Stamps, Patterns, and finally, at the bottom, there's the box of certain crafts, and my Lip Gloss Supplies box (and some extra bags in teh middle!)


My organized bead/findings stash - in a tackle box and separated containers... also featured are paintbrushes.. and the Beck's beer keg is filled with beer caps that I eventually intend to use!


All right. Well that's my organization! Not featured are my fabric toybox & hanging baskets because they weren't quite organized this time. I was proud of myself for doing this though!

And some things I actually made:
A nice handy sunglasses case, with skull-finity fabric and velcro closure


And My Sailor Jerry style Mini Tote - handpainted (and hand designed) detail, no pattern, and made of pants! (On offer in the FOC Raffle 4 - "Amore" themed!)


The interior, showing off some of its pockets and the Sacred Heart fabric lining

Lol littlebiskit,

You just need to put it in perspective. If you use that yarn to make a ton of ornaments you may be able to destash a bunch of old buttons or use the yarn to make a ton of little crochet critters and destash some pipecleaners you may have Smiley or whatever LOL

you could also look at it as gaining new storage, rather than failing at de-stashing.  The fact that the storage containers are already filled is a slight drawback, but one that could be overlooked if the yarn helps with battling your all-consuming button, pipecleaner and fiddlybit stash.

it's okay. You see yarn can insulate your house. So technically you're saving money by making your house warm... uh maybe?

Of course!  My craft room is in my very cold basement, so I should get even MORE carts full of yarn and fabric to keep me warm!  You're the smartest!

Also, the yarn in the carts doesn't look to be organized well.... i'm thinking if I re-ball everything I'll be able to fit the excess yarn that's spilling out of my current 18gallon tote, so then I'll actually be able to organize and close it.  (Plus there are more colors, which will aide in using colors I have to make crochet food for my daughter and also there are things besides acrylic!  Hurray for something different!)
