Tips on Organizing your Craft Supplies
1. Decide how you're going to organize your supplies (by color, theme, size)

3. Decide whether you need portable or stationary storage - depending on your type of hobby
4. Be aware of the limitations of your crafting space for shelving or cabinets
Storing your Supplies
1. Be sure that your supplies are away from dangerous situations (extreme heat or cold, within reach of small children, accessible to pets)
2. Be sure that your supplies are stored in child proof containers or that you have non-toxic items, such as paints or adhesives (if you have children in your home)
