I swapped the kid whose room that was into the basement where my craft space used to be (his choice, now he has a small bedroom down there and my old crafting space for his own, he loves it). The rooms both have the knee-kick walls already with a height that just works for the bookshelves I've got some stuff on. I have so many baskets, bins, etc but it's just too much. Now I am going to lose the second smaller room up there to the man as his office space so I'll have even More stash to try and fit into my room. I'm working on it but it's really difficult, I can *make* it fit via tetris technique but that does not work for actually crafting, only for storage. The fold out couch we use for guests is in my room as well, that will definitely have to go to make space for my sewing and cutting tables. I feel very conflicted about all of this.

My doll stash went from this horribly messy "stock box":


To organized in four drawers of a spare dresser that holds yarn.
First drawer is dolls I have 100% concrete plans for:


Second drawer is fantasy skin tones:


Third drawer is natural, human skin tones:


Fourth drawer is clothes, shoes, and accessories along with dolls with missing pieces (arms, hands, etc):


The yarn is now in the doll box:


Not pictured: several dolls I recently bought in a lot because they were a steal.
ETA: if anyone is curious, I forget exactly how many I have, but I know I have 100+ dolls in my stock box.

I am still really struggling with my crafting supplies. I can't seem to get things organized to my satisfaction even though I've gotten rid of at least half of what I had stashed. I'm frustrated and disappointed and have a lot of work coming up that needs my attention so I feel pressured to get this DONE already. Ugh. I am going to focus on it today and if I don't make enough headway I will take a broom to that space and just sweep everything that's unsorted and cluttering up the floor right into the trash.
I probably won't do that.

Somehow all the Christmas crafts items, supplies, scraps are allover so yesterday I started with craft area gathering all things Christmas and into an empty panettone big tin with Xmas pattern, everything I found so far went in there.
It is now 2/3 full.
Some A4 size stencils, A4 papers , etc went  into a bookcase next to my 1" stack of 12x12 papers/cardstock.
Yesterday I sorted out 2 smaller boxes 25 x 25 cm  and sorting out along theme one is now all Spring/pastel colors supplies, papers,scraps, pale tea dyed papers etc. The other has another narrow box  put into it with diy ephemera journaling cards in it and next to it a small stack of half finished journals format TN.
Made a go at making some new journaling cards for spring with all sorts of leftovers and that is in a clear travel bag. Maybe this afternoon I do some time finding fall/autumn and start a box for that.
First week of january I want to continue the organizing and when I pause as I get tired soon than I do some ephemera or watch video crafts youtube and continue the organizing and sorting out of supplies. Yesterday also did some tea dying of music papers  using Rooibos tea which gives a brown-reddish tint and a hint of tea scent to plain white copy papers.

That sounds very organized, BelleBeryl!
You must have a wonderful paper stash.

Yesterday was looking at Youtube for inspiration, saw scrap paper bundles video by Gayle Agostinelli and I think is a great way to sort little packets of papers. I will not be cutting totally square as I like uneven papers. Will add also some of my new amaryllis/hazel papers to these.
