If you are anything like me, you want to craft something beautiful without spending the entire day at it, so let’s Organize Your Crafting!
On September 1, 2020 we moved! Yep, during the pandemic ?

As soon as I can get through the unpacking and Christmas, I’ll give you the details of building the tidy “Greenhouse” where my paper garden grows … Overlooking my backyard garden and bird feeders!
As you will see, I use punches a lot for creating my “4 Cards in 30 Minutes” by the dozens. I have everything popped up on Kickstands that gives me some shallow space for storing a nifty drafting table brush for quick cleanup.
I mail lots of cards each year, and have repurposed the Whale Tail Punch Storage unit for Card Storage. This unit, when turned on its side has the perfect sized slots for A2 cards and their envelopes. 12 slots for cards and 3 slots for envelopes
I assembled a mobile kitchen island, also from IKEA, for my cutting station. It holds my Big Shot, Simply Scored, and an industrial paper cutter on the top shelf. On the middle shelf I have 4 Wafer Die Storage Bins from Stamp-n-Storage for embossing folders, Framelits, Thinlits, and additional Magnetic Cards from Stamp-n-Storage.
The cutting island has two wheels at one end, so at the end of the day I can lift and push back into place.
Everything I have put into The Greenhouse has saved me time and space to dedicate to what really matters: making and sending cards. It really is true: Organize your craft and unleash your creativity!
Thank you for visiting, and I hope you have found inspiration and solutions to your crafting organization. Feel free to ask any questions you have. I love encouraging your crafting!
Small town attention to detail: While I have known Brett Haugen by phone for many years, the “Our Story” video says it all. Watch it here:
I had to pare down after moving into the smallest room of a new home. I love the fact that the Combo Holders come in widths!
