Show & Tell Sunday - Container Week!

I wasn't able to join in Show & Tell Sunday last week as most of my china pieces are in storage for when I move home but I can join in today!

My bedroom is my craft space and unfortunately also doubles as a storage facility for all the bits and pieces I'm buying for what has far exceeded any "bottom draw".

I showed you in previous posts (here & here) some glass jars I'd found whilst thrifting and decided filled with craft supplies they could become decorative on my shelves

I did manage to clear one draw out to house some craft supplies but didn't want to just throw them in.

I gathered some small designer giftbags I had hanging around

and found they were a perfect fit in the draw

for my ribbons

I'm off to visit Cerri & see what everyone else uses to store their supplies

I can feel craft room envy coming on!!!

The glass jars are great! I have been looking for them every time I visit our local thrift stores. I have found a few recently. I like your groupings or clusters. It looks better that way!

I never would have thought of putting gift bags in drawers for dividers! GREAT IDEA!

I love storing things in glass jars. I like the gift bag idea very clever.

Just a few months ago my craft space was my bedroom that I shared with my hubby and baby boy... it was tight!! I am fortunate that I have an entire room to call my own! You've done a great job utilizing your space.

Your glass jars are lovely. LOVE the gift bag in the drawer idea! I have a deep drawer in my desk that I've left empty because I haven't known how to maximize the use of it. Now I do! Thanks!

I love glass jars! And the idea for the bags for ribbon inside drawers is inspired! Thanks for inviting us in!
