And now back to normal. Ish. I'm slowly chipping away at the office/craft room. I'm still having problems figuring out what to do with everything, trying to come up with an organization system that will work well and will be easy to maintain. Yesterday I was a Target buying a new iron (my old one had a small incident and um, it needed to be replaced). So I stopped by the Dollar Spot and grabbed some storage bins. Specifically four little buckets and five little bins. I figured it would give me a good start.
So I went home and transferred all the supplies that had been in random containers - a coffee mug, plastic cups, and a decorative box - to my new matching buckets.
And I've started organizing the drawers to go back into my drawer organizer. I think the front of the drawers are eventually going to get covered in scrap book paper and made a little cuter. But for now I'm happy to have at least one drawer organized. So this is the paper supplies drawer.
I mentioned before that I had organized my paint. Well, with no overhead light in our office, it's next to impossible to take a good picture. Especially since it's practically dark by the time I get home. But, we'll just pretend this pictures looks fine, okay?
In the tall jar I'm storing all my curly ribbon. Once again, it's great because I can see what I have. It's also pretty and colorful. And the best part is, neither of these projects cost me anything. The lazy susan was a leftover from our kitchen. The jar was a gift for Christmas.
The office is nowhere near being done, but I love seeing little areas starting to come together. How are your winter projects coming along?
