The craft room is starting to take shape :) After much deliberation and some trial and error - Here's what part of the workspace looks like after this weekend:
My stash of buttons were sorted out into individual 1/2 pint canning jars - separated by color and hue...
Munchkin got to help with the sorting. He now asks if we can sort them again. He asks at least 3 times a day. I should not have sorted while Munchkin was awake.
My scissors, rotary cutter, and catch-all metal containers are now happily off the workspace and up on the wall.
I bought 2 of these magnetic knife racks from IKEA and LOVE them! The cylindrical containers are from JoAnn's - I bought them a few years ago for $1 apiece (they were found in the party supplies section). The square containers are from Making Memories - they originally held paper flowers.
I don't have a ton of fabric to display (I have lots of random fabric, just not alot that I'd like to have out) - Mostly just fabric for Munchkin's current quilt project and a few random yards that I couldn't resist. For some of my smaller pieces - charm packs and quarters, I went with a fun display using a tiered melamine tray
Now I just need to ask Hubs to hang a few shelves... make some cork/pin/memo boards... make the skirt for the workstation... organize the rest of the stuff... and it'll be just about done ;)
