Craft Closet Venue Progress

The bins, boxes and craft supplies have been flying as I dug into the messy part of my Olympics Organizathon over the last few days... and I've got a peek at my streamlined Craft Closet Venue for you today. Here are the before and after pics of the left side shelves.
It is always amazing to me how much more space organizing creates! I do have a good sized box of 80's dusty blue and mauve supplies heading to the thrift store as well. As soon as I find my roll of tape to make labels I'll post more details and show off the right side too.

Basically I'm storing fleece, flannel remnants, my stash of kid's clothing fabric (grands someday?), small batting pieces and stabilizers/Insul-brite in the banker's boxes on the top shelf. This side has nice deep shelves so I'm trying to maximize the space.

Supplies for cross stitch, knitting, painting, decoupage and miscellaneous crafts are in the other bins. I decided to reorganize into seasonal bins to match up with my quilting theme for 2014 and I think that will better motivate me to use them.

Today I am going to take pictures of my cross stitch and knitting UFOs since the sun is out. I have a few of each that will go on my short list to work on this year. More on that later in the week! Then I'm going to move on to the Stash Closet Venue.
