My Creative Space

Slowly but surely, my messy creative space is being sorted, tidied and pretty-ed up.  It's a huge job but I try to jump in and do a few things at a time.

I recently used a sweet set of nesting suitcases I had to put cards in; the small for hair clip backing cards, the middle for brooch back cards and the large for business cards.

Today the task was to find a way of keeping my Japanese washi tape.  I did get a bit of washi-tape-storage-envy when I saw Thea's new holder, but this year, as we're saving madly for a new home, I'm trying to use as much of what I had around me.  It's not the neatest solution, but I grabbed a few baby food jars I've been saving for this project and wrapped them in washi tape.  In the bottom of the jars I popped some clay and then some bits of dowel we had around the house.  The best thing is, the storage has a very small footprint.

Necessity is the mother of invention - it's so easy to just spend money on something instead of looking around at what you already have that can be repurposed:) Cyndy

Very clever storage Mel. It only shows off your envy-worthy collection even better.
