How long can you procrastinate decluttering your craft area? If you?re like many, the answer is ?TOO long!?Crafty Decluttering shows how one small craft space was organized and transformed. The story is told through pictures of the progress. Seeing how one crafter’s mess gets organized may be just the thing to motivate you to tackle your own projects in your own way.

Organizing a craft space is an ongoing challenge. Two systems were featured in this updated version.

Not everyone is lucky enough to have an entire craft room, but regardless of the space allowed, decluttering is vital. In fact, the smaller the space, the more important organization is. Minimize your clutter to maximize your productivity and peace of mind.

The author’s craft is wire-wrapped jewelry, but the overall concepts may be applied to other fields. If you need some quick inspiration on improving your own space, this book is for you!Organizing your area allows more time for creating.Enough said!

"a small book with some funny photos and very little substance"

Reviewer: .


A book about decluttering by someone who hates to declutter so much that the only way she could declutter is to write a book about it. I found myself identifying with the author immediately, as at the time of writing I am reviewing her book instead of decluttering. My way appears superior as it puts the work off for longer.

This is Brenda De Haan's story of her Mother's Day declutter of her craft's room. Each page has a short passage of text and a photo with meme-style text on it, giving a cleaning tip. These tips are in some cases too simple, like 'have the handles face the front'. Also the advice to use folding benches you use for shows for extra storage is excellent advice, until they are needed for the next craft show and have to clear them off. Can you ever have too many dressers? Yes. British houses are smaller. The warmth and byplay between her husband and herself is clear throughout, and I did laugh when she revealed the mess had simply migrated to the rest of the house, because I have lived this.

However I have to mention a major problem with this book. This is a light 49 page read. It might be enjoyable if you are a crafter, but it won't last long (my reading time was five minutes in total) and it had very little substance. While I do not mind reading it for free, I would not pay money for this book. >From curiosity I checked the normal price, and there is absolutely no way I would pay £6.79 for this book. I would actually be angry if I had spent that much.

Crafters who can get this free will enjoy it literally because they will have lived it. Otherwise it is a small book with some funny photos and very little substance.
