Free Labels for you and Sewing Room Pictures and Ideas

Hey everyone!~
These tags are for you. Print and cut out and use to label craft containers.

When organizing crafts the best way is to organize like items together.
Like thread, trims, lace, snaps, fasteners, measuring tapes, needles, etc.

For a long time I organized with baskets and beautiful containers...then after two flood catastrophes, I moved what was recovered into plastic containers for the most part. Cute stuff is still in baskets up on shelves, and fabric storage is in larger plastic tubs with lids. I label and tag.

I also keep the things I use the most nearby so that it is easily accessed when sewing or creating.

I am presently in the process of moving my sewing room 

but here are so older pictures of my sewing area. I used quite a few baskets, and an armoire for some of the fabric. I have a lot of fabric!

This is my first ever magazine article picture. The editor wanted a picture of the dollhouse I had used for pictures while listing my miniatures for Etsy. This is several years ago, about 10. I didn't have a dollhouse. I had never had a dollhouse! I purchased my first one when I was 50 from a Marine soldier who was being deployed with his wife, and their daughter had grown and didn't need the dollhouse anymore. Wow!

This was such a special purchase for me. And it was $100. It was empty and I began collecting furniture to put inside of it. 
I also have containers that I have labeled and put dollhouse furniture in. Fabric is separated into colors and I keep the fabric I am using presently on little shelves. The bigger collections of fabric are kept in labeled containers.

All you need to do is tap on the labels. When they open up right click to save to your phone, computer or device.  When you open them again, you can print them out onto paper. You can print out on card stock or full sheet sticker adhesive paper.  Cut and  attach and use on containers. Organize your supplies quickly by putting like things together. You can even go so far, to alphabetize in order. your containers so that you can find things quicker.
I often use plastic shoe boxes to store items and then stack for a neat pulled together look. I also store the stacked shoe boxes under tables and then add a table cloth so that all that plastic doesn't show. I use plastic but I don't have it at eye love to look at all the time.

So those are a few of my tips. Be sure to see my other posts this week. There are many more labels being offered for fun little crafts.

PS I am in the midst of packing of my older sewing room and moving it to a newer area where I can work, spread out, and have all my miniatures and sewing supplies in one room. When I finish I will share all the details with you and lots of pictures!
