Welcome to the Drawer Organization Blog Hop!

For the entire month of April, 10 bloggers will be sharing the process of cleaning and organizing  drawers around our homes each week.

We kicked off the first week in the kitchen! This week we have been doing drawer organization in our Office, Craft and Living Rooms.

My Attempt At A Small Amount Of Craft Room Organization

This blog hop has been great.  It is keeping me in check and I am making small attempts to get organized.  Last week we organized our kitchen drawers.  I did two of my kitchen drawers but since then kept my cleaning up and my kitchen has looked great for an entire week now.  BONUS!!!  It is amazing how cleaning a little bit each day or each week is so much easier than going hog wild (go ham) every once in a while and wearing myself out.  Ugh!

I created a short video before I started so you could see the room and the area I am working on before.  Now keep in mind it was just Easter and I had done some cleaning. This room has definitely been worse than this before.

You can see the drawer before I started too.

 

 

It Gets Worse Before It Gets Better

Just as in the kitchen, I started by removing everything from the drawer. I put it all on the dining room table.

Clyde was helping. He loves to create messes!

I tossed a lot of papers, business cards, pieces of “who knows what” and more.  Then I tried to create piles of tools, patterns for things I have made and everything that I wanted to stay in that drawer.  

I had a box of q-tips. I don’t use them very often for crafting but I do use them.  So I put a bunch of them into one of my empty jars that sit on the paint shelf I made.  It was perfect. I found other things for these jars too from the drawer and the desk top.

 

Finishing Up

It didn’t take me too long to get everything in its new place.  The desk top looks much better and I can find things in the drawer again.  Yay!

I created an “after” video too.  Enjoy!

 

 

 

 

 

This was fun and we will be back next Wednesday with more drawers to organize.  I hope we are inspiring you to do a little organizing of your own…if you need it. I say…take baby steps!

    The drawer looks great! My kids love your cat and came over to check him out. You are so right- to get organized it gets really messy first, then better.

      Hi Jenny. Thank you. Clyde is quite the character and I am glad he was liked by your kids. That makes me happy. That is one thing about organizing. There is that awful mess before anything looks better.

    Your craft space is looking great, Michelle. Sorting and purging have been keys for me, too. it does get worse before getting better! I’m enjoying this blog hop not only for motivation, but I’m finding lots of great ideas, too.

      Hi Beverly. Thanks so much. I don’t really like my craft room in the dining room but we needed a second guest room so it will have to do. I am loving this hop too. It is fun to see the process of others

    I love your craft space. I use whatever room I happen to be in. I had it in a spare bedroom, then one of my kids moved back in (again).

      Yes. Those kids can always come back. My two boys were fighting over the one guest room so I had to create another. Basically their rooms again just decorated my way. LOL! Thanks so much.

    Your little helper is just too cute!! The drawers looks great (would love to have that yellow bin!) and I am really liking those shelves on top of your desk. They look like a great place to store craft supplies.

      Hi Amanda! Thanks! My husband made the shelves for me a while back. They were in my previous craft room and they fit on this desk so I brought them downstairs with me. They are very helpful! Clyde is a “great” helper. LOL!
