A Revamping already!

I have been watching some of my favorite people redo their crafting spaces. I have to admit, the way I had everything looked really cute but didn’t work really well…so I went and got some sweet little boxes at Wal-Mart and reorganized the item I seem to use all of the time

This seems to work a whole lot better.

Then I took the items I had in the cute cherry boxes on the shelves behind the desk and put them in plastic containers that I can see thru and grab as needed. Not as cute, but much easier to work with! Those shelves are not easy to get to!

I still need to move all of this around a bit, I can’t get into the bottom 12 inch drawers….but they are Christmas anyhow…

I also redid my hutch where my computer is….being into genealogy, papers pile up in a New York Minute!!!! So, I had to get some organization here also.

Love my little red dish drainer, got that idea from Brenda at A Cozy Cottage! I have file folders on their way to me that have colorful rick-rack on them! The little white boxes hold all of my CD’s…images, photos, etc….I will be making them all cute at a later date…I hope! Of course, there is always stickers. :)

And yes, that is a sweet little paint foal on my screensaver, and my Vista Bubbles….love them!

Take a good look, it is empty!!!!! Joyce, those are your Necco wafers I am eating right now! I got the fun, colorful pencil holder at Target, in the same place as the dishes….I love all of the colors, and if I need to I have a silverware caddy for a picnic! That is what it was intended to be!

I also thought I would show you a few photos of part of my Peep collection. I have no idea where to put this stuff, and I have a big bin of even more….but I am not parting with it! :)

Love your studio! Those boxes are cute-- I like the turquoise handles. Your peeps collection is fun! I kind of have a little collection going too. I just picked up "vanilla marshmellow" Peep lip balm at Target the other day!

You have a charming space! I love your storage solution. I like the plastic bins, and I need to take a stroll through WalMart to find those.
I saw your tags on Elizabeth's blog, too. They're lovely!
I'm glad you came by my blog, so I could come by yours. I'm following you now. :D I look forward to more pics of your workspace on Wednesday. ;)

I like what you have done especially the blue trimmed plastic stackable boxes, very handy now. What became of the cute cherry boxes?

Your opening pic makes me feel happy! ♥

SueLovesCherries said...

You go, girl! I change things around all the time, too. I like your bins - good idea! Now, let's see some projects!!

It's looking real good! I'm redoing my craft area, and I'm having a hard time organizing everything so that I can find things easily, and remember where they are! I really like those plastic boxes with the blue handles. They look pretty user-friendly. I don't think I'll ever have enough room for all of my stuff!

Cozy Little House said...

I'm glad you liked the red dish drainer idea. I picked it up once upon a time in a magazine somewhere. So many things you can utilize it for!

I have some of those cute walmart boxes and love them. The cute colored snapping handles are what captured me. Plus I love they have several assorted sizes and nicely priced. And the dish drainer idea, I may have to lift it for myself as well if you don't mind. What an absolute creative idea. Love your area.

Happy creating in your beautiful new studio area! gail
