We recently moved some furniture around in our studio at home. The black cubicle bookshelves used to stand on end to form a wall, but I put them on their side to make it feel more open. This also gives me alot more "counter" space to put things.
I recently discovered the joys of these "scrapbook organizers". I bought one with a michael's 50% coupon so I could lug alot more supplies to our recent play retreat and found it to be so cool that I went back and bought more. This particular one holds all my charms, metal tools, waxed polyester, needles, wire and other related stuff.
This is my fabric bag and has everything I need to sew anywhere.
It's handy to either throw in the car for a weekend getaway or simply bring down to the living room to sew while watching a movie.
This one holds my tape, glitter glue, paints (I only use these tiny pots for traveling), etc. The masking tapes are in long bags so I can pull out a stack easily.
This is my pen bag...and no, I don't take this into a coffee shop...but I do bring it to the loft when I want to journal in there or I can bring it to whatever desk I feel like working at.
Anyway...these have been working fabulously and keep alot of stuff all in one place. I can store them in my cubicle bookcase to put them away. You can bet I'll be keeping my eyes peeled for more sales on these things (regular price is about $25...way too much when they have so many sales)
