I am ready to sign myself up as a traveling salesman for Urbio. No kidding. I think this system is the best. I use it in my new and improved Crib Meets Craft closet and love it. The modular design of the plates make this a great storage solution for crafters. If you have a Container Store in your area, take a look at the Urbio system and play with the different configurations. And, while you’re there you can take a look at some of my other favorite organizational solutions for crafters like the Linus Cabinet Organizers, which I use for organizing my stamps – or the Clear Shirt Drawers which are great for storing large spools of ribbon. To learm more about Urbio, you can take a peek at the installation video to see more of how this system works. Seriously – you should watch the video. Can you tell I’m a fan.


Erin Condren planners are probably very familiar to you. They are awesome. I love mine and I’m pretty sure you’ll love yours too – if you don’t already own one. They are colorful and come packed with tons of organizational accessories including stickers, personalized labels, a plastic zipper pencil holder, a perpetual calendar for keeping track of yearly events and interchangable laminated covers that can be customized with photos and your name…and THAT’S standard on these planners. When you take a look at all the add ons – there are even more options. I own a standard planner without any of the additional add on items, and I could not be happier with how jam packed it is with everything I need to stay organized all year long. With the new year upon us, you should probably take a look at Erin Condren !

These storage binders are just the smartest thing ever. They keep your metal dies tucked away yet incredibly easy to access. I love that I can label the spine and organize them like a library of books. I opt to organize similar dies together, even if they are from different manufacturers. This way, you make the most of your storage binders and it’s easier to remember exactly what you have available to you. The other plus is that Little B packages ALL of their dies in these storage binders. So if you order a Little B die set, it shows up at your door perfectly organized. Some of my favorite Little B dies are the Holiday Die Set, Bouquet Die Set, Boxes & Bows Die Set.

  1. so many cool give idea’s. I love anything organizational. Thank for sharing these. I can add some to my Christmas list for the hubby.

  2. It would take me, probably, 3 days!! But my biggest problem is not having space enough for the stuff I have!! So it is almost IMPOSSIBLE to organize and clean my space!

  3. IF I were to clean my craft room I would need a really long 3 day weekend. And coffee. And chocolate. It’s an uber mess at the moment. And the one item I need help organizing the most is hard. I have lots of stamps and spend lots of tome shuffling through them so maybe them? Or spools of twine and ribbon. They are still in a box from when we moved 11 months ago!

  4. I would say it would take about 30 minutes to clean up my craft space. I have things pretty well organized, but I am in the middle of a project, so there are a lot of things scattered about right now!

  5. Hmmm – good question. I could probably completely clean up my craft space in a few hours… Am I dreaming? A day maybe? Maybe a definition of “clean up” would help. I would say I’m more cluttered. I do know where everything is though.
    I think my craft supplies that need an organizational system is paper pads. I have some in hanging folders in drawers – but the overflow is stacked on top of a cabinet and has to be moved when I need anything.
    I really like the die storage binders you showed. I’m gonna check those out. Thank you for sharing these great organization solutions!

  6. My sewing box is starting to get out of control. I need to start using bags to keep track of my cross stitch threads

  7. Hi,

    OMG! do I need the storage from Little B! If I start now it will take me a week to get everything in it’s place! You are asking this question near Christmas timel? I started ny work in September and I have not been able to finish as of today!
    I will consider myself lucky if by mid January I am all organized…and then it’s Valentine’s….this does not ends!

  8. Wowza I wish there was a giveaway for a Fairy Craft Queen to come organize the craft space of my Dreams, but since i have to do it myself…well
    If I could go non-stop uninterrupted it would take me 3-4 days including trips back and forth to the store.

  9. I’m hoping that Santa brings me a craft room redesign. It’s my favorite room, but it needs some organization. My dies are a huge problem. I use them frequently, but there is no order.

  10. It usually takes 1 hour or less to clean my craft room, which involves not only cleaning but also re-organizing whatever isn’t efficient for me. My new papers are organized by ROY G. BIV, by size, and by card stock weight vs. text weight. The scrap papers are organized by ROY G. BIV in color-coded drawers. It’s easy to collect all the scraps from my table and walk over to the drawer and just place them into the appropriate color drawer. And all my various ongoing projects are in see-through plastic boxes. So when I pause a project, it goes into that project’s bin and the scraps go into the appropriate scrap drawers. All dies go in the dies drawer, inks in inks drawer, and stamps into their binder (or drawer, for wood-mounted ones). I do need a better system for the cling stamps because I get tired of flipping through all the binders. But once everything gets put away, it’s a matter of vacuuming the floors. And seeing a clean space only inspires me to create again… and make another mess in the process.

    1. I have just recently moved into a house so most of my craft supplies are still in boxes. It would probably take me a few weeks to unbox and organize

  11. My stamps need a different organization system because I have two different sizes of cases now. Such a great giveaway – Container Store is my favorite!

  12. I am not a very organized person. There, I admitted it. I am starting one room at a time now that my kids have moved out. To clean and organize my craft room, I would say three weeks working 3-4 hours a day. I know because I just did my walk In pantry by myself and it took me 5 days. It is a 6×7 foot pantry with 4 levels of shelving. My craft room is 14×22. Nuff said! Your makeover is amazing. TFS .

  13. I would love to win the Little B dies and magnetic storage. I have a little corner in a smallish family room to craft, so storage is a real problem for me.

  14. Love everything you shared today, especially the die organizer…I need that! It would probably take me 10 minutes to clean my space. That being said, it isn’t nearly as organized as I would like.

  15. To really properly clean my craft space right now would take probably a minimum of three hours. That’s a total guess but it’s pretty messy right now.

  16. The part of my craft room that needs the most attention and organization is my stamps! They are everywhere. 🙂

  17. It would take forever to organize my crafting space. Since you have posted so many great crafts, I just had to go out and get a Cricut Explore – now instead of cleaning and organizing, I am playing. Love the Little B die sets and the magnetic folders they come in. thanks for sharing your incredible skillz

  18. Oh! And depending on the way I decided to organize I could do it in 10 min (with one big craft bin) or a few hours if I did it the right way and not a “black hole” bin!

  19. Surprisingly I am currently try to teach my daughter to clean up her space after each project. So just about 10 minutes. my daughters getting better.

  20. Your timing is perfect, Amber. I started reorganizing everything in my stamping room so have been closely following your craft-to-crib project. Thanks for the chance to win this GC!

  21. OMG, it would take me at least 2 hours to finish organizing stamps, dies, card stock, embellishments, etc. would love to accomplish this before I get in full swing mass producing my Christmas cards.

  22. Honestly all my supplies need to be organized. But I’d like to tackle my vinyl, some of it is on rolls and some are loose sheets.

  23. I just re-organized all my paper and am thrilled that I can find what I am looking for. Stamps and dies are next on the list. I love the Container Store and have one not too far from where i live. Thanks for all your wonderful inspiration and the opportunity to win.

  24. None! I clean up after each project and store any “in progress” projects in clear zipper envelopes that I purchased from Target. Keeps my husband happy, and he never questions my need for supplies!

  25. Containers are a crafty girls best friend! I use them for e v e r y t h I n g!! I try to keep them consistent to the craft: papercraft, knitting and crochet, sewing. Organization can make such a difference.
