We found quite a few handy tips on how to organize your crafting supplies, here are some of our favorites.  I have always appreciated a good pegboard. They’re such a flexible storage option since you can add or remove different aspects as your storage needs change. You won’t want to miss the transformation of this room on Just Call Me Homegirl.

She made these fun colored jars just to match her room decor, the details are over on her blog.

10 Linen Closet Organization Ideas

The linen closet is the bane of every neat freak’s existence. Somehow, this one small closet attracts clutter much faster than other areas of the home. As we enter a new (hopefully less cluttered) year, we found a few ideas to inspire our own linen closet organization. This linen closet is every perfectionists dream! Julie Blanner painted the inside of her linen closet (a place that usually is neglected) a light color to create a brighter space, making it easier to find things. If this was my linen closet, I think I’d leave the door open all the time! No linen closet, no problem! Ella Claire added these practical yet beautiful shelves to her bathroom to create the storage space her home was lacking. Seeking Lavender Lane shares a great step-by-step guide for those that aren’t quite sure where to begin in their organizational efforts.  Make sure you head over to her blog to see the before photo of this closet, it’s very relatable and will give you hope for your own closet. While many people choose smaller baskets for their closet, Little Glass Jar uses larger metal bins. This creates such a clean feel to her closet while keeping all those smaller items in their place. For some reason, most homes have wire shelving in their linen closets. If this aspect of your closet bothers you, head over to Lemons, Lavender, & Laundry to see her solution! The large baskets Clean Mama uses create such a uniform feel. The best part about this closet organization though is the guest basket. No more digging around for clean (and relatively unwrinkled)…

20 Trendy Thanksgiving Tablescapes

Thanksgiving is just days away and if you’re anything like me, you aren’t at all prepared.  Here are a few tablescapes to inspire your Thanksgiving decor. A patterned tablecloth is a great way to switch things up without having to invest in new dinnerware.  This plaid pattern Bless’er House chose for her tablescape is to die for! It also serves as a great canvas for other things that go on your dinner table, like the ones I go over in my post on serving tray decoration ideas. A few years ago, I decided to add some color to my Thanksgiving decor.  I still reminisce on how well this design turned out. All the details are on my blog, Designers Sweet Spot. We love how Fox Hollow Cottage designed her table around this vintage sugar mold. It’s the perfect centerpiece to give the table a casual yet sophisticated feel. Make sure you take a peak at her cute turkey-themed dinnerware! Speaking of turkey, check out the wings on my tutorial on how to create angel wings home decor. You’ll definitely want to head over to 2 Bees in a Pod to check out all the adorable details added to this tablescape, including the DIY clay place cards! Such a special touch.
