One of my goals for 2010 is to get a grip on my craft room which is usually the messiest room in the house. The main reason it is messy is because it's full. I am trying to do a little every few days. Here's one shelf that looks decent enough to share.I love putting things in jars because then I can see what I have. Since I am all about the 3R's (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle) these are all repurposed. The small jars actually have some sentimental value-- would you believe those are the jars of our daughter's first (Enfamil) formula bottles from the hospital when she was born? Yep! I thought they were so cute and a perfect size for embellishments. The nurse actually looked at me quite strangely when I asked if I could keep them and take them home (my husband was a little --no, very- embarrassed). Anyway-- they work so who cares! The jars with the red lids are from Jiffy peanut butter and the ones with blue lids are from Lipton tea mix-- both work great for larger items. All are sitting on steps for spices from The Container Store.
The clear nesting tower boxes are from The Paper Lion, a local invitation store. Right now they are holding an over abundance of ribbon that I purchased on clearance. The little shelf above the jars is from IKEA-- that's my tiny collection of Martha Stewart punches.
