Hygge Self-Care CraftVent Day 14 – Sort & Purge Tools.

Hygge Self-Care CraftVent Day 14 – Sort & Purge Tools.

It’s time to take stock of our crafting spaces! If you’re a crafter you might also be some degree of a hoarder. You know how it happens, you dabble in this craft or the next, or even if you only have one passion, you try many different techniques. Before you know it, your crafting space is overrun with too many things, and you have trouble finding the things you do love and use.Today it’s time to toss some things! (or donate, or sell)


  • Broken/Dull punches
  • Dull scissors, craft knives and other cutting tools (unless you know you can get them sharpened)
  • Pens & markers that no longer write
  • Bent knitting needles or crochet hooks
  • Dirty/broken cutting mats


  • One function tools you rarely use (ribbon cutter anyone?)
  • That fancy tool still in the box for over a year
  • Tools for a particular technique you never do anymore
  • Obsolete tools that have been replaced


  • Glues
  • Adhesives
  • Paints
  • Paintbrushes
  • Inks
  • Sealants
  • Other liquid media

Note: be sure to check which of these you can toss in the trash, and which need to be disposed off properly.

You may not get to all of this today, but make a start with the things that are easier to sort through. Then make a plan to continue preferably before the end of the year
