Hello to all my fellow storage enthusiasts. Once again, it’s Hazel all the way from Sunny South Africa to look at storage options with you. First of all – I hope your 2015 will be filled with love, fun and perfect storage solutions.
Most of you who follow my blog or read my posts on Craft Storage Ideas know that I’m a “Project Lifer” (with a twist). I don’t do weeks – IMPERFECT ME does events. You remember the “old” albums where we stored pictures, wrote comments and dates???? My Project Life works like that. And if I feel like a layout / a mini book, I do one and it goes into my album next to the pocket pages. I call it “My Life, My way”.
Due to unforseen circumstances, I got a bit behind. Mostly it was because I didn’t want to miss out on my family’s fun and therefore did not want to spend time alone in my Craft Closet. But now I have a solution!!
“Mobile” Project Life storage. Not everyone is fortunate enough to have a designated area for crafting BUT that’s no excuse, just get your hands on a basket / trolley / tub and away you go.
I love this trolley from Christine Newman AK Listgirl:
And an old wooden cutlery box from Juju:
Plastic containers come in every shape and size and most of them can stack – even more space for your stash! Hop over to see all the useful tips Mrs Crafty Adams has to share on her blog.
And then there’s my system:
I used a lot of ideas from Mrs Crafty Adams but when an old beverage trolley became redundant, I grabbed the opportunity to incorporate a few of Christine’s ideas to set up a mobile Project Life station. (No Raskog, no Ikea down under in Sunny South Africa) I still use detergent holders to separate my goodies. If you missed out on this, you can read all about it here.
I do plan to add a few canvas bags and a lick of paint to my trolley but for now my system works like a charm. I work wherever the action is at HQ Hamman.
That’s it from me. Thanks for looking at mobile Project Life options with me. I had FUN and even stumbled upon a few more ideas. When we meet again, I’ll share what they are.
In the meantime, keep calm and organize your stash!
