Why Amazon Prime is a Lazy Crafter’s Dream

Why Amazon Prime is a Lazy Crafter’s Dream

I’ve been an Amazon Prime member for years. I admit that when I first heard about it, it seemed like a just another thing to spend money on. But Amazon Prime is a lazy crafter’s dream! I’m a bit of a procrastinator. I think it goes hand in hand with the lazy crafting part of me. Luckily for me, Amazon Prime has thousands of items that qualify for free two-day shipping (and one-day or same-day in certain areas!) I’ll be…

Portable Craft Organizers

Crafting is even more fun when you can store your supplies in a portable craft organizer. Here are 10 of my favorite options to organize your craft supplies. Several of these craft organizers can be created from things you already have at home If you are shopping for a new portable craft organizer, look for coupons.

Paper Scrap Storage

Have you ever needed just a small piece of paper for a craft, which you knew you had somewhere in your scrap pile, but looking for it was too overwhelming or would take too long? As my scrap pile got larger, looking for the right scrap got harder and harder. I knew it was time to create effective Paper Scrap Storage. You guys have heard me say many times that I save almost everything. I don’t mean to sound like…

DIY Marker Storage

As I continue my never-ending quest for organization, I decided that I needed better marker storage to keep all my writing utensils close at hand. In keeping with my hoarder collector persona, I have plenty of pencils, pens, markers, and more. My current two desktop holders, a mug and an old mesh container, are overflowing (and a little outdated.) I need something better. Being the lazy crafter that I am, I apply that laziness to my household abilities. I subscribe…

DIY Vinyl Storage Using Cardboard Tubes

I have a vinyl problem. What I mean is, I have a vinyl storage problem. We all know there is no such thing as too much vinyl. I’ve tried a few different storage methods, but my collection has, um, outgrown them. What’s a vinyl hoarder to do? Create new storage. Many years ago, when I thought my life was busy, but I only had 1 child and didn’t have an earthly clue what busy meant, I used my birthday money…
