Crafty Ways to Get Organized


Spring will be here in just a few short days! We're ready for warmer weather, longer days, and sunshine galore... but we're not so pumped for the obligatory spring cleaning sesh.

Of course, once you mop and dust and vacuum and scrub the fun part comes... The organizing! Okay, okay, maybe some of us enjoy purging and sorting and making things neat and tidy more than others. But, regardless, it can make all the difference in making your home look cozy, comfy, and welcome. A few easy DIY projects can help provide a home for all the miscellaneous mess cluttering up the house. This truth is double fold if you're a crafter. 

The pencils, the pens, the markers, the glitter, the glue... everything is everywhere. You're the creative type, we get it. But making your craft supply area look good might just help inspire your next artistic masterpiece. 

And since you're the artsy type, you can get your crafts organized with a craft project (mind blow!). We've rounded up a few favorite spring--cleaning projects from our friends at Joann. They have some fantastic and fun ideas that'll make your annual organization a joy!
