5 Easy (and cheap!)
Tips for Organizing
Your Craft Space

Create a Craft Space


Whether a spare room, the corner of a room, or
a desk area, its important to carve out a space
where you can create. Think outside the box
and browse flea markets or garage sales for
items that might be turned into a workspace,
such as an old bakers rack or hutch. If you dont
have dedicated space where you can leave your
materials set up, create a portable station with
a storage bin or tray that you can move from
your kitchen table into a closet or stash under
your bed.

Freshen It Up
By painting the walls, purchasing a new piece
of furniture, or moving things around a bit,
youll feel more energized and may even find

If youre anything like the typical beader, you have a growing


collection of beads and tools that can seem unmanageable,
perhaps making it challenging to work on projects. Here, we offer
a fresh approach to projects that have had
you stumped! Make your craft space someplace

smalland turning it into a more efficient work area. And you For any type of art or craft, daylight is best, so

Cut the Clutter


Start by buying a few baskets or bins, then sort
your tools, beads, and other materials into sepa-
rate bins by category. Create fun labels on your
computer or by hand. Or purchase a set of desk-
top craft organizers or mobile organizers with
drawers, such as those by Go-Organize.

Reduce and Recycle

Free Bead Retreat


for Cancer Patients
Set to Expand
Lonakana, a free beading retreat nestled in the Endless
Mountains of northeast Pennsylvania, has been providing
refuge and relaxation for five years to women with cancer.
Its founder, Maryann Corey, hoped to spread the healing
power of beading to larger numbers of women and
children. She found an idyllic sixty-four-acre farm on
which to further pursue her mission. The new land and
facilities will feature three handicap-accessible cottages
that can house four to eight guests, as well as an art barn,
yoga barn, portable petting zoo for children, sleigh rides,
and simple country activities. The retreat is designed to
encourage both patients and their family and friends to
escape the routine of doctor visits and to recharge so
they can resume the battle with renewed spirit and vigor.

Lonakana building
COURTESY OF LONAKANA

The Lonakana Retreat grew out of Maryanns


experience with her other venture, the Portable
Playhouse, a nonprofit that brings beading
instruction and inspiration to the bedsides of
women and children in hospitals and outpatient
cancer centers. Maryann found that beading
helped calm the patients by distracting them
from their environment as they got into a
beading zone. She also noticed the strain a
cancer diagnosis can put on families as they

reconnect and create loving and lasting

The vision of Lonakana is well on its way
but needs some help to become a reality.
