Here's pics of my craft room: http://s54.photobucket.com/albums/g82/lylacfey/

I use a lot of decorator boxes to keep organized.

It would be nice to give credit, if I could have found it! Most of these came from blogs that showcased others' craft rooms, and didn't give credit...

How funny that I included a craftster's room!! Thanks for the inspiration!

I love all of these storage ideas, but it seems they are mostly for little things, bits and bobs. I would love some storage suggestions for the many thrifted wool sweaters that I have fulled and use as fabric. They are bulky, different sizes, hard to fold neatly, and wool (so they must be kept pest-free.) Right now, I have some in drawers and some stuffed on shelves. Neither of these solutions is working. I would like to be able to see them (to make color choices easier); keep them dust and pest-free, and uncrushed; and keep my cat from sleeping on them. All of my shelving is open and I don't have enough drawers to hold it all. At this point, all I can think of is those zippered, plastic bags like the ones comforters come in, sorted by color, and stuffed under my bed. Surely you imaginative craftsters can come up with something better than that! I can't wait to hear from you.

Maybe hangers? My grandpa always asks at stores like Old Navy and JC Penny's and whatnot if he can have their pant hangers (the kind with the clips) and they give him boxes and boxes full. Picturing a closet or clothesrack full of rainbow wool bits gives me a warm fuzzy feeling... lol.

SkkyAngel I think that is a great idea! You could also use those hanging shoe organizer things, and roll up your wool. Hmm I will keep thinking!
