Tips and Tricks Wednesday: Clean as you work

Untitled-1

I’ve heard many crafters complain that their studio is a mess. That they can’t find anything or they are embarrassed by the chaos.

There is a simple solution to this, one I use every time I craft. It boils down to one saying

“Everything has a home”

or like my dad used to teach me “Elke ding het sy plek.” Its an Afrikaans saying that boils down to the same thing.

When you are done using something, put it back where it belongs. Throw little bits of paper and junk in the bin as you work. Don’t leave it on your work space.

As you finish one part of your project, put away the tools you used for that part.

You’ll find when you are finished you have very little to clean up and your work space and craft room will stay organized.
