Folksy Friday – Organised Chaos

by Hilary Pullen

Would you like to guest curate our weekly #FolksyFriday ? See the end of this post for details.  Create your own Folksy Friday blog post – we’ll be sharing our favourites so if you are a keen craft blogger it will be a great way to find new blog readers.

This week our #FolksyFriday theme is all about becoming more organised.  We’ve picked a selection of work from our makers to inspire us to tidy, sort, make notes and get that to-do list done and dusted!

Peg Board UK for Crafts and Art

Pegboards are in, just search Pinterest and you’ll see all the glamourous craft rooms and offices using the humble pegboard.  Time to clear your desk and hang it all on your board and then reorganise it six times until it looks beautiful!  Pegboard by Girl With Beads – Recycled Fashion

fabric bucket tidy

These little fabric storage buckets from Astrid Weigel are perfect for finding homes for stray knitting needles and paint brushes – most importantly they will make your desks and sideboards look fabulous.  You’ll be hunting for the perfect things to tidy away in them!



bird pencil case

You can’t beat a pencil case.  Spending an hour sharpening your pencils and neatly organising them into your new pencil case may seem like time wasting to some. It’s not, it’s actually therapy for the cluttered mind.  The more pencil cases you have, the more organised you are – that’s a fact! Birds and Flowers Pencil Case – The Beaded Garden


Notebooks (especially pretty ones like this embellished notebook from Nellie & Elsie) are basically the recipe for being super successful and highly organised.  Smartphones will beep at you but time spent with a pencil and a notebook writing down your thoughts, tasks and ideas, cannot be underestimated.  Plus you don’t need wifi – just buttons and ribbons!

gin o clock glass

Gin & Tonic may not immediately seem relevant to a theme on getting organised, however there is only so much you can do in one day.  Reward yourself for all that time spent sharpening pencils and reorganising your pegboards! Gin-o-Clock Tumbler by Toasted Glass

It is fab isn’t it! Although I don’t think I’ve ever drunk gin at 10am – that really would be a bad day!
