Reorganized Craft Room Resolution Redux!comments (3) January 7th, 2009
It's seven days into my New Year's resolution to keep my craft room organized, and as usual my beading stuff has been the biggest challenge, but I've had some little successes, too! I thought I'd share a follow-up photo to show how I'm storing my newly labeled bead boxes and other tools and supplies.
On the top of this plain secondhand bookshelf, I'm keeping my go-to things easy to grab. On the left, I have my pliers and tweezers in this handy holder. In the middle, I have my loose beads rounded up (I'm now calling their container my put-away palette in my head, to remind me that yes, I do need to put the random things away!), and next to it, seed beads in tubes in a canister, and in their own larger containers, too.
Then below, I have my labeled bead boxes (10 finished in the photo, 10 to go when I have time to get the glue gun out again!) stacked in groups of five. I put colors I'm likely to use together, and also grouped the two boxes of metal charms together. too.
I'd love to see photos, or hear ideas, of how you're organizing your jewelry stuff, too—and a huge thank-you to Rachel at CRAFT: blog for featuring the beaded label how-to this week!
