Craft Storage Ideas: One Quick Share

Craft Storage Ideas: One Quick Share – An Inexpensive Rolling Cart
Craft storage doesn’t have to be pricey – just look at my latest score!

Hello Crafty Friends!

We hope you’re having a great weekend and that you’re getting a little creating in.

I’m using this weekend to work on a few organizing projects, projects that have been screaming for new storage solutions.

I got a screaming deal on the rolling cart below, a cart that can hold quite a bit, but is also short enough to fit under my crafting table (something which has proved challenging since most rolling carts, including my IKEA Raskog cart, are much taller).

I found the cart below at TJ Maxx, in the area where they have back-to-school and dorm furnishings stored, and I just had to share it with you!

It was only $19.99 – here’s the front and back of the tag in case you want to see if your local TJ Maxx (or another store in their chain) carries these:

And here’s a few shots of the cart itself – the first image is of the cart with all the baskets in place and the second is with the top basket removed (yes, the baskets come out!):

Anyone in need of something like this for storing crafty goodies?

Share your ideas for using this type of ‘budget storage’ –
we’d love to know how you’d use something like this!

Happy crafting and organizing,
Steph & The CSI Team

Hello Fellow Crafters!

We hope you’re all enjoying a wonderful Fall thus far.

I was just up in the Midwest and I so enjoyed seeing the early Fall colors (something we don’t get here in Austin, Texas).

If you’re already seeing Fall in all her glory, please share some pix in the comments – I’ll take all the Fall I can get!

I don’t know about you, but I’m big on prepping my craft space for the upcoming holiday crafting onslaught.

And this reorganization often involves finding new ways to store not just my old favs, but also my newest treasures, some of which have been released during the last couple of months and are now finding their way into local stores, and into my craft space.

Sound familiar?

Well, if it does, and you’re looking for a great resource for high-quality organizing and storage options, and you want to SAVE BIG, then you’ll definitely want to read on!

Craft storage for tools – there are many options, but this is my fav!

Greetings Crafters!

We hope today’s post finds you enjoying your Summer days and staying cool.

Dang, why’s it so hot everywhere right now?!

Well, the upside is we can stay inside in the A/C and create, right?


My craft studio/office has been a hive of production for the last two weeks.

I’ve been creating the decor items for my mother-in-law’s 80th birthday celebration and it looked like a pink flower bomb went off in here!

Given that my studio/office colors are black and white with pops of red and Disney collectibles, this is most unusual.

It’s o.k. though ’cause I’ve had a blast creating again!

Craft Storage Idea: Solution for 6″ x 6″ Paper Pads or Fabric Bundles
Craft Storage doesn’t have to come from a craft product retailer!

Today’s post centers around finding organizing and storage solutions for 6″ x 6″ papers, paper pads, and folded fabrics or fabric bundles.

Craft Storage Ideas: Does Your Creative Space Help or Hinder You?

Craft Storage Ideas: Does Your Creative Space Help or Hinder You?
Creativity comes from many places, including where you create – is your creative space an asset or a hinderance?

I saw this Economist article on famous artists’ spaces and thought y’all might enjoy reading it.
The Economist: Artists’ Creative Spaces

And, not only reading it, but thinking about whether or not your space enhances creativity, or diminishes it.

Could this quote from the above article describe YOUR space: “These spaces feed into a mythology of the workspace: the artist is not just a creator, but is surrounded by beauty so that he may create it.”

Or, is this a more apt description of your creative space? “Today’s studios are far less opulent: Jeff Koons’s studio features numerous Lysol cleaning spray bottles for polishing and fluorescent-hued cartoon paintings of a very different aesthetic era.”

Hello craft storage lovers – we know, it’s been a while!

We’ve been working on craft storage ideas to share with you in 2016 and we thank you for hanging in there with us while we regrouped.


To kick things off, I’m sharing a quick handmade craft storage project I came across while perusing some new-to-me craft blogs – this project’s not only super simple, but one that’s perfect for using up your fabric and/or felt scraps. 

This cute little Pixie Basket was created by Heidi Staples and found on her blog, Fabric Mutt – thanks to Amanda Jean of Crazy Mom Quilts for the link!
