Craft Supplies

My craft supplies have been steadily mushrooming. It’s not that I buy excessive amounts of supplies–it’s a quarter yard here, a thrifted grab bag, some pretty trim online–but it all adds up very fast, faster than I can make things. It’s safe to say things are out of control. I officially ran out of storage about a month ago. I cleared out half of a closet (sorry Ryan!) to make room for my junk, went to the Container Store, picked up a few more clear bins, and resorted, refolded, reorganized everything. It’s less stifling in there, but I’m declaring April and May Use-What-You-Have month(s). No excuses. Otherwise, I may soon be eaten alive by bits of fabric and buttons.

    I’m very impressed. I seem to have to tidy up every so often and I always discover someting I’d forgotten I’d bought or half made.

    love plastic bins–i have so many that I often forget where i put things away but at least you can see into them to see the contents and I got myself a handy-dandy label maker to make things easier….

    I can soo relate. Doesn’t seem to take long before the cute little crafty piles become mountain avalanches. Your containers are so inspiring.
