Easter Giveaway! To enter post a great tip to help stay organised !

Easter Give away !
All you need to do to enter is be a follower of my blog and leave a great tip for helping to stay organised !
After starting to clean and organise my sewing /craft room, I was sorting through my craft magazines and I found I had two copies of Country Craft (Patchwork issue)Magazine Volume 19 No 8. Its a few years old, but its brand new, it has lots of patchwork projects, so if you love patchwork, you may like to enter. I will also include in the give away a few fat quarters of fabric... So please enter by posting your favourite organising tips , you can enter as many times as you like and the best one will win... Only available to Australian & New Zealand residents. So what are you waiting for away ...
I have just been through all my materials and 5 fat quarters will be included in the prize. I hope that may tempt you all to enter and come up with some great tips for helping all of us to stay organised. I'm looking forward to hearing some great tips to help me keep my sewing/craft room clean, neat, tidy & organised all the time. Two big tips are having lots of storage containers, well labelled and put every thing away when you have finished with them or if not possible try to put it all way asap. Or at least put every thing away before you start your next project.
I will select the winning tip and post it on my blog on Tuesday night 26 th of April .

So the lucky winner is Tracy from Sunny Corner Farm .


  1. I love your blog, I am here daily to see what sort of fun you have for us! For organizing, I am all about the P Touch label maker. I label everything. Because I do so many crafts(ie sewing,scrapbooking,cardmaking,etc etc) I have tons of supplies for all of the above so I like to keep my many crafting items in rubbermaid type containers thus the label maker. I cant go a day without it!! Thanks so much for the chance to win this cool magazine and the fat quarters. Hugs & Smiles, Dannette

  2. Love to quilt..To keep my bits and pieces organised I use old enamel bowls and clear mason jars.I can see what I need when needed and it looks cute sitting on my craft shelves..Thanks for the giveaway and I am a happy follower..xx

  3. Having just given my youngest daughter's bedroom a thorough going over, I can definitely say the best thing to keep a room organised is a place for everything and evrything in its place.
    Thanks for the giveaway. I'm already a follower.


    Thank you Sherrie

  5. Love your blog, love to craft and (trying to) love to organise. With 5 young children I do find it REALLY interesting to keep everything organised. I try to follow the "little and often" mantra. My other tip is to never leave one room or area without taking away something that doesn't belong there - and then putting it back where it does belong (of course!) Have been following you silently since you first posted in SS about your blog.

  6. I recently organised my linen cupboard, and labelled the shelves so my male family members know where to put things away, and where to get things from....Its working great.

  7. love your blog, for organizing craft stuff I use empty commercial margarine containers which I recycle from a nursing home, they are perfect size 10 cm high x 20 cm wide and 30 cm long. i clean off the labels and stack them in a cupboard. for beads, buttons and all small sewing and craftstuff I collected a lot of glass babyfood jars from the recycle centre , they look very colourfull on skinny shelves above the sewing table and everything easy to find. any sewing, embroiderie and craft patterns are sorted in plastic sleeves in folders. to keep it tidy i try to sort and put things back in its spot regularly and when planning a craft with small kids i get everything we need (kids can help choose) and take it out in one of the containers to the rumpusroom, this to stop them pulling anything and everything out,also because more room there
