Crafty Organizational Blog hop....


Thank you for stopping in & please leave a comment before you leave to your next stopping place.
- I hope you arrived here from Leanne's place for our first blog hop & hope you all go away with lots of creative ideas to get your juices flowing once you made a full circle of hopping.
Here is a list of the participants in order:

Photograph Storage - Leanne http://scrappingamma.blogspot.com/
Embellishment Storage - Jo http://buckeyejo.blogspot.com/ ( you are here )
Stamp Storage - Wendy K. http://www.myscrapbookingblog.com/
Ink Pad Storage - Ramona http://create-with-joy.blogspot.com/
pens/pencils/markers storage - http://missjeannemania.blogspot.com
Sticker, Die Cuts and Rub-On Storage -Amanda http://www.notimecrafting.wordpress.com/
Tools Storage - Mary http://mbryt1.blogspot.com/
Paper Storage (including Page Kits) - Mary http://mbryt1.blogspot.com/

My category was for embellishment storage. I have tried many different things from baskets to boxes to jars and even used a hot wheels storage container. I was not happy with them- always searching. Below you will see what I now use & love it. It sits right beside my desk & I can see what I have from brads to eyelets to flowers to those dew-drops....
It came from the tool section at your local Walmart store. I am sure you can find it at K-Mart or Lowes or just about anywhere that sells tools & such.
You can even mount it on the wall if you would want to.

Great idea! I have one similar to this that I can use. Thanks for the idea!

Vidette said...

I love these organizers. I wish they came in prettier colors. I ended up spray painting mine.

Karen said...

I do have one of these on the wall of my old craft room but somehow it never made it to the new place. Now I use those wooden Ikea boxes that you have to put together. Fun blog hop!

Hey, Jo! I have that exact same thing - but it is filled up with other stuff! I guess I need to prioritize what I want to save and where to put it!
Good to see you again.

Thank you for the great idea on storing my embellishments.

Miss Jeanne said...

Amazing! I just started doing the same thing! Great minds think alike! I have more embellishments than what I have drawers, so need to buy more! By the way, I'm so sorry that I was late on the blog hop, but it was worth it! Check it out and please add me back to your list! I have more pen, pencil, and marker ideas listed than a person could dream! missjeannemania.blogspot.com

Hello Jo,

These organizers are great! I actually keep my JEWELRY in one! I hadn't thought to use another for my embellies though. Thanks for the tip!

I use two very similar containers! They were free to me from my dad's workshop. He used the containers to hold nuts and bolts and screws and things. I use mine to hold buttons separated by color, small paper flowers, colorful chains for paper crafting, foam and chipboard alphabets and much more! I am so excited to see someone else is doing the same thing! Thanks for sharing!
Angel Hugs,
Bridgett
