Storage Solutions.....

As we all love to purchase that ever growing stash of supplies, eventually we collect so much that we must think of a way to store and organize those incredible finds. Today's article is featuring some tips for storing and organizing your supplies and your space.

The blog being featured today is Dawn Lotharius. Please visit her blog for more great storage ideas and tips in organizing her HUGE space!!!!!
Here is a video tour of how she put her things into order....enjoy....

Look at how she painted this piece of furniture white, added some lovely glass bowls and jars for a colorful yet easy-to-see storage system for embellishments.

Yummy jars are being used for both ribbon and button storage here. Don't you just love the curve and shape of the button jars?

Her wonderful and supportive honey put her gutter ribbon shelves together for her. I'm sure many of you have seen this idea before. An easy fix to keep rolls of ribbon out and easily accessible! Did you notice her Spellbinder nesties hanging on the pegboard? More incredible ways to make the most of what space you have.

This is my favorite! I love the old bobbin clothes pins with the ribbon wrapped around and placed into an acrylic paint can.

Hope you enjoyed today's article featuring some great ideas for storing and organizing your stash. Please visit Dawn to say hello and check out her incredible scrapbooking talents.

Very pretty ideas! I'll have to note these (or store this blog somewhere) for the magical day when I have my own scrap room.

Thank you so much Kim for sharing my "Craft Cave" It really isn't huge! I just took a unused spot in my basement and kept adding more stuff...I do have to share with a guest spot and the laundry room...lol

Always love to see scraprooms and how others organize supplies. Love the black kitty! I have one, too, named Chessie. If you go to my blog and click on the label "my scraproom", I have a series of 6 posts about my organizing, or lack thereof.
