Chances are that if you are crafty and like to make pretty things, you probably have a lot of gorgeous buttons, ribbons and beads to make them with. I implore you, do not store these gorgeous items away in boxes, and drawers! Why not enjoy them before they make their way to your next masterpiece. Just look that these pink jade stones by Gathering Splendor on Etsy, if they are tucked away out of site, you may forget you even purchased them in the first place. Pity.
My mother used to sew, and I remember when she would let me look through her box of buttons, I could spend hours looking through them, they were all so different and beautiful. These Dahlia Cabochons from MK Supplies are lovely little pieces just waiting to be put on view.
Make your craft area a place you can’t wait to go and create! You could pour them into a larger glass apothecary jar like the one centered above by English Creek Gardens, Or you can opt to sort your collections by color and size into smaller jars like the far left one by Abbott, or the bulb shaped Dover jar on the far right by Artland. Was your New Year resolution to become organized? What better way to start than with junk drawers and craft nooks?
