Craft Fair Earrings and Jewelry Making Supply Storage

Hello Everyone!

Christmas craft fair season is upon us! Yikes, I am not ready! Anyone else doing craft fairs and are you ready?

One item I like to see are earrings. On a side note I only make and sell things I will use/wear/display in my home. Too often people try to make only what they think will sell and not what they actually like or that they would wear or use. This is my opinion, and I sure it is different from other opinions. Now I want to sell it all, but I know some things won’t sell and that is ok. And since I like it I will be more likely to use in my daily life.

One thing I do like to sell are cute little earrings. But before I get to the earrings I wanted to show you how  I organize my jewelry findings. I found these really great tool organizers at Harbor Freight.  Here is the link: https://www.harborfreight.com/tool-storage/part-storage/multi-compartment-utility-box-40528.html

They are fantastic, I love how portable they are with the handle and each bin comes out so I take out what I need. There is a lot of room and they fit my needs perfectly.

The organizational bins behind the plastic storage is the metal strip my husband hung along with the magnetic containers from the dollar store. You can read the blog post here: Organizers

The earrings are really cute and fairly simple to make. All you do is add a French hook to a cute charm. I used a zipper pull and some other charms I had in my stash.

I like to use a variety of charms, not just Christmas ones. You never know what people will need or want.

Once I have a pile made I will package them and get them ready for the craft fair. If you are interested in seeing how I make my packaging and how I display my earrings let me know and I will write a post about it.

Organization- Adding Metal Strips for easy organization

Hello Everyone! In any craft room organization is key. It is important to know what you have, and where it is so you can complete your projects easily with minimal headache. These metal strips will help you achieve your craft room organization goals.

Metal Strips for Craft Room Organization

My finished Metal Strips

I don’t know about you, but I have all these little odds and ends that are all over my crafting area. I use them all the time, but I didn’t have a good way to store them I wanted them close by, but out of the way.  I know, that sounds like a contradictions in terms, lol.  My strips are on the wall right above my work table. Perfect reaching distance.

This is such an easy project, just grab some metal strips from the hardware store.

Drill holes so you can attach it to the wall. Secure the strips to the wall.

Add all your little bins!

The little clear plastic tubs I found at the dollar store (you can see it online here) Just add a magnet to the lid and you are good to go. Just make sure the glue dries overnight before hanging it full of stuff.

The metal tubs I also found at the dollar store (here) They are great! With a clear lid and lots of space they are perfect for your metal strip. Just make sure the paper sticker of off the magnet, it will attached better without the sticker.

I added magnets to some of my other odds and ends like wire and micro beads.

Now I have everything on hand, but it is out of the way.

I think this is a great solution for all these little bits and pieces. Now it is time to add some more strips for the rest of my do-dads.

What is your favorite organizational technique?
