Surely I'm not the only one that makes a New Years resolution only to groan about it a little later in the year (eg on the 2nd of Jan!). But I'm a sucker for punishment so I've gone ahead & made another resolution ..."Keep my workspace inspirational". And if hubby is reading this - no, I'm not going to put money on it!
I have a little while before I have to tackle this, & luckily for me I get to start from scratch again as I'm actually inbetween moving from NZ to Oz. I have a quite a bit of time up my sleeve to research some great ideas & hopefully be set to put them into action.
I've not been one to hoard fabrics & laces etc up until recently so storage of such items is a new dilemma for me. I now have 3x 60L plastic tubs of fabric & 3 or 4 big plastic bags full of lace to deal with. After surfing the net, here's some ideas I have to work with:
Ribbons & Laces
So this type of storage is great for rolls but all those loose strands of ribbons have to go somewhere too. Up until now I have just flung them over a rail which was effective but unsightly. A better idea I came across is to buy a simple tiered coat hanger for trousers (view one here from Howards Storage World) & drape the ribbons over the rungs. Keep in place with a pretty peg or big paper clip.
Well, hopefully this has inspired many a crafter to 'pretty-up' their workspace? Next blog will be on tackling all the laces lying around.
I would LOVE to see any photos you have of your workspace or hear about other neat little storage solutions you use. I can't wait to start my sewing room from scratch again!
