I found 3 huge apothecary jars a while ago from TJ Maxx, put them away, promptly forgot about them, and discovered them again. I filled with regular buttons, another with vintage buttons, and the last with rolls of ribbon. I'm sure I will change my mind again. In the meantime, here is what they look like.
The mess that I call my craft room is slowly getting organized little by little. I wish I could spend my days organizing but alas work is getting in the way of my fun. :) Here is the room with all the crap on top of the island in the process of finding their permanent home. No one can tell but the island is 4' x 6'. Yes, that seems pretty huge for such a little room. We'll see...
These Jetmax storage cubes are my absolute favorite! Probably because I didn't put any of it together. Thank goodness I have 2 strapping bucks living at home with me (yes, I refer to hubby and stepson, not the poolboy or the butler). Ha. Yes, those letters spell "STUD." :)
Here is the other wall so far. The shelves and rails are from IKEA. I could totally use about 10 more of each, but I am trying not to be such a hoarder. :P I sent my sister home with bags full of srapbook cardstock and patterned paper. The old me would probably have some anxiety parting with so much stuff, but this new me is going to buy more paper. :) I'm still a little bit of a hoarder. Can't change that easily. I haven't had nearly the psychotherapy I need.
The room keeps changing with my mood, and as indecisive as I am, the room will keep changing. Stay tuned...
I have slowly been purging and reorganizing my scrap area. My room has looked the same for a while now and I needed a change. My hubby had built shelves desk to ceiling to utilize the space a little better, but I thought it would be fun to utilize the floor space and use the wall for decorative items.
Michael's had their scrapbook storage 40% off and had an additional 20% coupon. Score!
Hubby and Junior has been building these Jetmax storage cubes and I am sure they never want to see anymore of these suckers. Oh well. :) Hubby tore down the shelves from the walls on both sides of the room and I love how the cubes look 2 cubes high.
Here's the other side of the wall 3 cubes high. The Cropper Hopper paper holders fit perfectly in the cubes.
Here's what's inside some of the little drawers:
We have a long way to go since the work area will now be in the center island. But so far so good. :)
