Organizing Your Crafting

Organizing your craft room
Your crafting hobbies can take over your house!

There is a world of crafting for us to enjoy but as most of it requires that you buy some type of specialty supplies or equipment and the cost of it can pile up very quickly (and so can the space that it uses.)

It use to be that crafts were considered to be a inexpensive hobby that would save people money but now craft stores are filled with all sorts of fun and expensive things to buy.

If you are an avid crafter you might have everything from paintbrushes to yarn, all squirreled away ready for you to delve into. But sometimes crafting can get out of hand.

It becomes depressing, not fun, when there are piles of half finished crafts though out the house or worse still, crafts that are half done but get ruined because they are moved from spot to spot to make way.

Organizing your crafting can make you hobby more fun when you know that your supplies are neatly placed away ready for you to start your next project without having to search through out the house to find what you need.

how to dress a bottle of champagne
Dressing a bottle of champagne gives it an extra bit of prestige when presented on a table.

This was something that I was taught to do years ago but doesn't seem to be done so often anymore.

In the high end florist store I worked we were routinely brought bottles of expensive wines and alcohols to dress them or the cradles that they were being served in.

For one of our own recent parties I dresses this Methuselah sized (yes, that is the correct term) bottle of bubbly as it was the show piece of the wine table.
how to sell your clothes for cash
Selling or trading your clothes makes perfect sense if you want to re-coup some of the money that you have spent to maintain your wardrobe.

You might have clothes that were gifts and never worn, or clothes that you bought and then quickly discovered that they made you look terrible. 

You hate the idea of just giving it all away.

While many charities survive on the generous donations of clothes that are given to their thrift shops don't feel that you have no other options to get rid of your good quality clothes that you no longer need. You can make some cash from your closet.

how to make a tea towel chef's apronYou need to get ready for some spring cleaning and to get yourself in the mood why not whip up a tea towel chef's apron.

Tea towels often go on sale and it is a pity just to use the great colors and patterns that they come in just for mopping up.

This apron was made with two 99 cent tea towels I picked up at the Cambridge Towel Outlet Sale.

Easy to make this tea towel chef's apron is meant to be washed many times and still look good.

These can also be made up quickly as gifts for the cooks, barbequers and bakers in your life.
