Or in my case a craft closet.
I started off with the best of intentions. We have a guest room with a large, deep closet. Most of my craft stuff is in that closet, but like many things in our new house it is apparent that I was pretty good about cramming things into the darnedest spaces and so not quite all of my craft stuff fits in the closet (and the bottom 3-4 drawers of the dresser with most of my yarn).
Some of this is due to organization. There simply isn't any. I don't have the energy or inclination to cook dinner and organize my craft stuff when I get home from work, and I haven't had an iota of time on the weekends (my fault - Chronically Overscheduled could be my middle name). I'm trying to decide how to organize the rest of my cross-stitch and move enough of the random project bags into an organized area that I can do things like get to the sewing machine or the loom without taking a 100 pieces of yarn and paper and what have you and moving them only to need to do the same thing to put the sewing machine or loom back.
The other shelves are deeper and much sturdier (my little line drawing is definitely not to scale). The filing cabinet fits under one (that side has a pole for hangers, because it is a closet after all), and the other is deep enough to fit a white drawer and shelf affair (like this one only with a drawer on top and cheaper). I have my craft stuff in a disorganized array on most of the shelves minus the lego shelf. I also have a huge duffle bag full of fabric on the floor. There really isn't any room to move around and do anything in there, and there really won't be until I get stuff organized.
Any tips for your favorite yarn and craft organization schemes? I have soap and candle making stuff (not much), cross-stitch (a ton), yarn (ditto), and fabric. There are other odds and ends in there as well for the moment, but I'd love to get a start on things.
And the filing cabinet is at least in part for my cross-stitch. It's what I bought it for when I was still a single chick living in Somerville. The boxes of cross-stitch patterns, kits and supplies are patiently waiting for me to recreate my file structure for all of them. I know this won't happen this weekend with family visiting, but it would be nice to get to the end of July and not shudder each time I walk into the room.
