Carving out a space for your craft may seem a daunting task, but if the desire to create is strong you will find a way.  A spare room is, of course, the optimum space for crafting.  However, not everyone has this option.  You can create a space in a laundry room, a closet or in a corner of a larger room.  A spot in the garage is also a great possibility.

No matter where you have the space to create, organization is a key factor for most.  Hobbies such as quilting, scrapbooking and altered/mixed media art require an abundance of supplies.  To keep your mind on the craft, having ample storage for these items is a necessity.  You can buy ready-made storage containers or create your own from recycled items found around the house and at flea markets.

Shelving is the ideal solution for many storage dilemmas.  Shelving is versatile and can be custom-built to fit any area.  Once the shelving is in place, containers such as baskets, decorative boxes, jars and other household objects can be used to sort items.

Don’t forget the closet for storage of crafting supplies.  Closet doors can double as ribbon holders and shoe racks can serve as supply holders.  An unused closet (yes, a rarity!) can be refitted with shelving for additional craft storage.

As for furniture and workspace, a kitchen island can be made into a craft table.  A kitchen island that has shelving and drawers underneath is a perfect work surface for limited space.  A desk provides a workable surface and can provide extra storage as well.
