Many have asked about a craft room tour. I actually shot a video of my old craft room in my old house. And the video will be here soon! I promise. I haven’t had time to share it as it is a big project. But soon…

  1. I started using the Avery Elle pockets in the fridge bin and so far so good I up to date with it
    I think the next thing will be maybe a table top spinner or the boon organizer
    Since the Avery Elle pockets are working for me I have to say those are my favorite at this time
    Thanks for for videos

  2. Because I love decorative papers so much, I’m loving my clear and colored plastic 12 x 12 storage containers.

  3. I think I just lost my comment so here goes again. I wish I stayed more organized but I have to say, I love the fridge binz for stamps and the small tins for mini inks. I cannot wait to see the video of your old craft room (and look forward to a video of your beautiful new one 🙂

  4. My favorite organization tool is the interdesign container for my stamps and the Avery Elle pockets!
    Thank you for sharing all you tips with us!! Merry Christmas Jennifer

  5. Thank you Jennifer for sharing all your tips! I have to be organized and my table has to be clean before I can work. I love my paper racks and spinners on my desk hold all the things I use the most.

  6. I love the small clear “hardware” organizer boxes from harbor freight. Inexpensive and they stack nice! I use them for small embellishments or sentiments as well as sewing notions, etc.

  7. I am looking forward to using the mesh bags to store projects! I have to stop and start a lot when crafting and these look like a great solution.

  8. I follow most of your tool and organization videos and you have had some amazing favs. Mine favorites of all is the fridge bins for the stamps and dies and the storage of both using the clear bags/envelopes for them all. From the dividers from plastic folders to the label maker I absolutely cherish… it has saved me time after time.. and also the embossing folders by number. An embossed sample using free paint sample cards from Home Depot (shhhh!)
    numbered to match larger bags I got from SSS to hold the folders that I numbered to match. Anyway… you have saved me time and again. Thanks Jennifer

  9. The Organize More Storage units are my favorite. I am more productive with the inks readily available on my desk. Thank you for the tips.

  10. I ❤️ how my stamps and dies are organized in Avery Elle stamp storage pockets and Interdesign bins. Thank you SO much for sharing that tip. I love how clean and uniform they look! ?

  11. You have been a huge inspiration for getting my craft stuff organized. My favorite tool are the sectional boxes that I use to keep my mini ink pads and sequins sorted. Really helps since I can see everything at one go and keeps things neat and clean.

  12. I love the fridge bins! Thank you so much for taking the time to make these videos! They are so helpful and insightful! God bless you and your family!

  13. I need to get lot more organized but I recently just used my label maker to label all my inks, as well as , my ink swatches (thanks to your ink swatch system). Now, that my ink collection has grown, I am going to look at the products sold by Organize More.

  14. I bought small magnetic metal holders meant for locker organization. I two stuck to the side of my file cabinet near my craft table – one for small card stock scraps, the other for water colour paper scraps. Not only does it provide a quick place to stash all those extra bits so they don’t create clutter, but the scraps are always in reach if I need to quickly test a marker, stamp, etc.

  15. So sad to hear this is the last video in the My Favorite Crafty Things series! 🙁 I always enjoy this video series a lot. It is very helpful in deciding what is best for me relating to ink, tools, organization things, etc. In my craftroom, I think the best organization tool I have is the Ikea shelf unit. (I think it used to be called Kallax). It keeps my things visible, but organized. Thanks for the chance to win!

  16. I love using 2 gallon zipper baggies for my decorative paper. They are big enough to hold 12×12 paper, they close to keep out moisture and bugs and they lay flat on shelves. I keep all my scraps, organized by color and/or size, in these bags. I immediately went to Amazon to order some of those organizers, though. I think those will save so much room in my craft closet that I will be able to buy more stuff. hehehe. Thanks for this series, it’s been a lot of fun and I’ve learned a lot along the way. Have a great holiday!

  17. I have never heard of the BOONE organizer until this video, but I think I am going to have to get one! My favorite craft organization piece this year, is the Stampin’ Storage Ink and Refill shelf. I received it for Christmas last year and it has made finding the ink color I want, super easy! I’m thinking a BOONE organizer is next on my list! It will probably also end up as a giveaway at my retreat that I host twice a year! WOOHOO!

  18. Jennifer your organization videos have literally and honestly changed my life! I too have recently moved and because I had many of your systems in place not only was it easier to pack but unpacking was a breeze compared to before! I am still setting up my craft room and tweaking things here and there but because my cardstock was in similar sleeves, my stamps and dies in pockets then into Interdesign containers, I am happy to say nothing was lost or damaged during the move! But by far my favorite recent organization tip is the ink swatches! Jennifer it is unbelievable what a huge difference they make! Thank you thank you! Next on my list is the boon organizer! I think it is truly a must have for me and cant wait to get one to try!
    Merry Christmas to you and your beautiful family!
    Stay Wonderful!
    Hugs, Tammy

  19. My favorite organizational tool is the LabelMaker along with the Avery Elle envelopes and InterDesign container. Please have save me a ton of space! I love that I find all of my sentiments together.

  20. Hey Jennifer!
    First I have to say ‘THANK YOU’!
    Your ‘My favorite crafty things’-Series is my year-end highlight since 2013! I really enjoy watching your videos!
    My personal favorite organisation tool are the job ticket holders. It wasn’t easy to get them last year here in Austria, but after I had watched your paper-storage video I had to get these!
    Greets from Austria

  21. SQUEAL!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Video and ALL of the Organizational Tips!! My Favorite is the Clear Sleeves!! I use them for ALL of my Stamps, Dies and Stencils!! THANKS for sharing and have a FABULOUS WEEK!! =)

  22. My favourite organisational item would have to be a set of drawers (two actually) on wheels, very hand and so easy to find things in as the draws are not too deep. I do think a label maker wold be a boon but a bit too extravagant for me. Pen and sticky label.

  23. Boxes of various sizes, and I like the metal mail holder you showed. Thanks for all the “Favorite Things” videos!

  24. Love all of your storage and organization videos. I really love that sequin storage, it is so much better than a whole bunch of little bins/containers!

  25. My favorite organization tool has been the stamp pockets, and keeping them all my clear stamps organized by type in a bin that I can haul in and out of the cupboard. Much easier than the binder method I tried!

  26. My favorite organizational tool has to be the Avery Elle stamp storage pockets, and all the other sizes from different companies. Your videos are so helpful in narrowing down what products I really need (or want), so thank you!

  27. My favorite organazation tool is my own homemade distress inkt tower. Here is store all my distress inks with there foams to blend everything and basic inks like versamark and versafine. On top of the tower i also have room for some tools like acrlic block, scissors, pens and bonefolder.
    I just love your videos. I learn so much from it. Would be awesome to win something.

  28. I really like the idea of the mesh bag with handles. I don’t have any for myself yet but I plan on buying some soon.

  29. Love the Videos! So very helpful. The mini vac is a fantastic idea….always bits if something to clean up while crafting.

  30. I love my label maker and I really like using the job ticket holders to organize my papers. Your advice has made my creativity flourish 🙂 Thanks

  31. I love all of your suggestions!
    My favorite organization item right now is the Job Ticket holders to store
    paper. I need to be able to see things and these work out great since they
    are strong enough to keep the paper from getting bent and ripped, but are see through.

  32. My favorite organizational tool is the label maker. I just love how everything is labeled so uniform and perfectly. My friends joke that I have a label for my label maker.

  33. I love the fridge bins, I have only been using them in the fridge (haha), but now that I see how well they work with the storage pockets, I will invest in some for my craft room. Thank you for this amazing series!

  34. I love bags – all kinds of bags. Thanks for showing me a few new ones. Will also be trying the job ticket holders for projects.
