Most sewers I know also dabble in other crafts like I do. We sew like there's no tomorrow, then put sewing on the back burner, and crochet. Or paint, do leathercrafts, making paper, jewelry, ceramics, papercrafts, rubber stamping, greeting cards, altered books, and junk journals, you name it, we've probably tried it.
I have observed (or tripped over) how many supplies and tools are required for each craft. Heaven knows, we're not going to use our fabric scissors to cut paper, so we need a variety of scissors, large and small, including those with the fancy deckle edges. And that's just the tip of the iceburg.
My adult son and I live together, and he's also a crafter, although he mostly does crafts that are different than the ones I do. He prefers lathe work, metalworking, making knives and custom-fit leather sheathes, and growing plants in the house. You know, manly stuff.
We live in a middle class 3 bedroom house with a double garage and a little shed in the back. We've survived this long without renting a storage building, so I think we're winning the game. We have craft supplies and tools everywhere, literally.
With supplies that get old, like paint and glue, when I go back to an old craft, I usually need to replace a few. That gets expensive, so I've had limited success in experimenting with homemade glue, gesso, modeling paste, and paint. What a mess! Fortunately, fabric, yarn, rubber stamps, and glitter don't go bad on the short term. But oh, where to store them in a semi-organized way is a real puzzle.
If any of you have suggestions for how to organize this chaos, please let me know!
