Craft Month: Creative Trials, Troubles, and Tribulations

March is Craft Month, and to celebrate Creativity Unmasked will be sharing a peek into my own personal crafty life, from my most used crafts, things I love making, favourite supplies, things that inspire, creative troubles and more.  Craft Month is a great opportunity to stretch your creativity, refresh your supplies (any excuse!), get your craft stash organised, try new things, and to simply have a little crafty fun!


What are your biggest creative roadblocks? Obstacles? Frustrations?  When I recently shared a few personal thoughts about blogging and content, I promised to share more of both the good and the bad around here.  In that vein, these are currently some of my personal creative problem areas (ideas and suggestions, as always, welcome!) ... oh yeah ... and there's also a completely unstaged peek at my rather messy craft stash! Open sesame!

Craft Month: My Favourite Craft Supplies and Equipment

I have a lot of craft supplies squirreled away in my craft stash.  I find it rather hard to resist picking up a few new things here, there and everywhere...although I'm trying! Read more about craft-stash busting and organisation here.  My go-to craft supplies and equipment are rather low-tech (see my note below on cutting machines) and very accessible to crafters of any budget and skill level. Here is a quick overview of some of the most-used items in my current stash:

Help Wanted: Designing and Planning a Craft Area/Room


It feels like only yesterday that I posted a Help Wanted request for ideas on wrangling my craft supplies when we moved into our current house and now I'm asking again.  Why? I looks like moving is once again on the horizon.  More excitingly, we're planning to build this time around. :)  So, dreaming hats on, crafty pals!  I would love your help!  I am looking for ideas/inspiration and would be every so grateful for your suggestions and any links you would like to share in the comments (or on our Facebook page). As always, Creativity Unmasked is a sharing place, so if you've shared your own craft room makeover or have an awesome Pinterest board, dropping your own  link is completely fine. :)
