Where Shantaie Spends Her Days

Greetings everyone! I'm Jessica, and I'm SO excited to join the Crafty Storage blog team! I'm a lover of all things organization - I often joke that I spend more time organizing than I do crafting. So I think I'll fit right in here.

In this post, we step into Shantaie's garage-turned-crafts room.

As you take a look around, you'll see why she says:

"Paper crafting has all but taken over my own little corner of the house {and universe} I like to think of myself as multi-abled, and I don't really tie myself down to only one craft {art} life is too full of fun hobbies to settle for just one :) {plus I have a fear of commitment}"

I'd bet most of us share that sentiment - being creative doesn't mean you must be limited to just one specific craft!

There's a place for everything (and everything in its place) in her bright white room. And don't expect the ordinary craft storage pieces. Shantaie often uses everyday household items to store her tools and supplies, like the Cuttlebug and Big Shot plates tucked away in a napkin holder, and the die cut accessories all perfectly slotted into a shoe organizer.

One of the first things that caught my eye was the four numbered bags hanging on her peg board. Shantaie explained that she uses them to store various craft supplies, including sewing notions, gift wrap/bows/curling ribbon, and lots of buttons!

"I previously had ALL of that hanging on the peg board...it was functional but very "messy" looking thats when I wrangled it all into the fun bags, I numbered them so I could direct friends and family where to look for something I can say "its in bag 3""

To see some of her other great storage ideas, head on over to Shantaie's blog, Inking Pink. Be sure to leave her some love, and if you do, tell her Crafty Storage sent you!
