Because a friend blessed me with this awesome cabinet for helping her clean and organize her scrapbook/stamping room... (and let me tell you girls, grab a friend when you do this... the work load is much lighter and there are lots more laughs).
I decided now is a great time to start organizing my Creatin' Space. When school starts up in August, I am going to become a full time crafter. I'm pretty excited about it! =]
This cabinet was first in the dining room but being a black, red, and mustard girl... the beautiful chippy white paint was just out of place. So I brought it upstairs to the library where I have a little space carved out for me to create. I love using these wire baskets for my ribbon. I also have one more really tall basket on top of another cabinet.
Just gonna share with you a few things I use for littles. Let me tell you, everything I use... I bought for cheap, cheap! Mainly at Hobby Lobby when they run their 66% and 80% off sales. Sometimes I might even find something left in the 90% off sale but that doesn't happen too often... not often enough, haha!
I bought these cute metal buckets last week. Regularly $13.99 for set/5, I got them at 66% off for $4.76 for all 5... less than a buck for each one. 3 candy canes made... I better get in gear so they will be ready in time for Christmas, lol!
The wire baskets I bought last year were regularly $5.99 for set/3. I got them at 80% off at $1.20 for set/3... 40 cents for each one. Perfect for holding littles. I only paid a few dollars for the ceramic urn last year at 80% off. Perfect for tall things.
Of course, you just can't beat good ol' yard sale prices. Muffin tins and bread tins make perfect storage for small amounts of littles.
Lastly, the classic mason jar... my favorite of all favorites is the best for storing all kinds of crafting supplies.
I delight in these awesome lids with the holes. I also have zinc lids for my other mason jars that hold cookie cutters, little wooden hearts and stars... all kinds of littles!
Wasn't really planning on this post. I brought my cabinet upstairs to my creatin' space and before you know it, I'm an organizing fool, hehe. Not a good thing to be doing when I'm getting ready to leave in the morning for a weekend trip to Branson, MO to spend Independence Day with my family.
Please have a safe but wonderfully fun 4th of July weekend~
