Craft Room Organization; Part 3- Wall Storage


Just hanging around!
 
In my case having a small space means having to be creative with storage!  Look no further than the walls!  Although, even if I had a big room I would still use the walls.  My goal here with creating my "creative space" is to see all my crafty things.  I'll get to my "open shelving" soon;) Ikea is ideal for the look I'm trying to achieve.  My room has wood, glass and metal.  And the galvanized wall storage at Ikea fit my vision and my wallet.
 
My stencils!  I had them all on one small ring like for keys.  UGH flipping through them drove me NUTS!  When I was getting all my $3 bars and S Hooks it dawned on me to hang them up!
Now each stencil is on it's own hanging free of each other and hooking into each other.  I can see all the patterns and when one jumps out I simple grab it.  What a dream!  Using S Hooks to hang your stencils is a winner!
This trio of 22" bars hang right behind me so turning around to grab when I need is effortless.  These long metal baskets are a steal at $5.  Holding my tapes, glue dots and favorite ribbon is readily available.
The last bar holds my goodies I use often including tool, distressing and water crushes. 
At my desk are these 39" bars.  This is my high use stuff including 2 buckets, $5 each holding my misters, glue and scissors.  I even have my heat gun hanging with an S Hook!
Not to mention each basket holds my distress paints, stains and glitter. I have space to add one more when I need more storage.
I use ALL of these!
One of my first decisions was to have these big metal pieces to hold all my Movers and Shapers!  I LOVE this system.  I can see all my magnetic dies. 
 
They sold me 2 displays for $10 each since they had no stock. What a deal! These were cheap anyway at $16 each. 
 
I love all my Cargo Stencil numbers trimming the bottom. 

My husband attached 2 anchors one each wall to create a long wire for my tags.  This is 12' of display space.
 
Now my desk is free of all storage.  All this room to create.
 

Thanks for checking out Part 3- Wall Storage!  More to come!

  1. Looking great! I too have a tiny room, which I share with a dresser, bookshelves, a file cabinet, and an exercise bike. Very frustrating! I just got a Cameo but still use my E2 - I have to keep moving them to use one or the other. And if I take my laptop in there to use my Cameo, I have no deskspace for it plus the project I"m working on. Someday I hope to make the room all mine!

Altered Halloween Advent Calendar w/ Video

WOW, I think this is my biggest Halloween project yet.  It took me 5 days to complete and I could have kept adding!!!  As you know I adore Halloween and yes I have begun bringing out my Halloween goodies.  Lots of photos in this post and there is so much to see.  So lets get into the project and get you inspired for Halloween!
I was asked by Scrapbooker's Paradise (where I teach) to make one of these Kaiser Craft Shadow Boxes...with a Halloween Theme!!!  Arm twisted and mission accepted.  I am going all Tim on this one! I started by spraying all the pieces with a Hammered Finish in a gun metal grey. The set even comes with numbers;) I used My Minds Eye Happy Haunting paper to create each box with a great pattern paper background.  Then using all my Tim Holtz goodies and $1 Store finds I went to town decorating.  I used various numbers from the rub ons, metal numbers, wooden and those that came with the Shadow Box.   Be sure to dry fit before gluing!  It took me 4 hours to die cut…

Halloween Decor- Pennies a project

SIX PROJECTS ON A DIME!

Are you looking for some Halloween Decor ideas?  I have a few for you.  These are projects I have been working on for the past couple of weeks.  BANNERS
I made Boo and Beware for my 2 corner windows.  These are cut from Birthday Bash, using Recollections Halloween paper and Stampin Up Halloween Paper.
I made this Tim Holtz Banner, "Trick or Treat".  Hangs over my spooky dining room.  Black sheets are there for the holidays.
Cut from Birthday Bash and the frames/ font are a Sophisticated cut.  I added beads from Walmart and skulls are a $1 store necklace cut up.
This BIG Banner is "Happy Halloween"
The charms are Walmart and the tulle is from an old Halloween costume.  This glitter spiders are a $1 store find.

Happy Halloween!
Candles
Cheap-o-la...You can make this on a budget...promise!  I picked these candelabras up from Michaels for $12 at 50% off.  I bought them on a day they there was an additional 25% off so in the end they were less than…

Apothecary Curiosities Coffin

Creepy coffin, I love this one!  I saw these little wooden coffins at the $1 Store and had to get one.  I ended up making this for a class and everyone loved making them.  Halloween is the best!  All the creepy stuff I get away with creating! I picked up these great skeletons at Michaels on a string of garland...6 per rope.  With a little force he fits! I made a template of the coffin and cut Tim Holtz Laboratorie paper to fir in the back. I accidentally broke my skeleton's arm.  Oops!  So, I glued his arm holding the glitter pumpkin.  SAVE! I picked up these skulls on a bracelet for $1.  Layering the Curiosities Coffin is key!  You want to look at the layers, like mesh, pen nib and a spider! I added the "shelves" using popsicle sticks cut to size.  This way it has a cabinet feel. The Apothecary Remnant Rubs are so perfect of the glass bottles full of eyes! Adding a little Spanish Moss makes it all creepy. I LOVE HIM! After the sprayed coffins were dry I sanded them to …
