the perfect craft room

i have big dreams for a tiny work space. at the moment, my craft corner is the most depressing thing. it's cluttered, lacks storage, and even though i try to keep it tidy, it always looks like a bomb went off in it after a day. i like to work on several projects at the same time, and need the space to let them all out until i can get back to them, and i think it's too much of a pain in the ass to put everything away after an intense crochet/sewing/whatever session only to have to get everything out a couple of days later. but like i said, i don't have that much space. so i need to come up with clever ideas to make it seems as though it's sorta clean even when it's not. what a challenge! i'm currently on the look out for the most inventive storage solutions available out there. i'm pretty sure i have to start out with this Expedit desk+bookshelf combo from Ikea
then, add a few organizers that are both practical AND pretty! like this desk caddy from Etsy seller, LessandMore
and this yarn bowl is amazing. SO clever! from TheMudPlace
i wouldn't mind having this in the bookshelf to help me keep my books straight. available here

a few baskets to keep the yarn at its place. aren't the colors just lovely? makes you want to create something right away! photo by Heather Bailey
these glass jars make perfect needle storage! from Viviana's craft room
looks like i have a lot of  work to do in order to... be able to do a lot of work!
