My Craft Corner

I absolutely fell in love with Kelley's crafting organization when she posted about it a few weeks ago.
I couldn't wait to make my own! Before this, my craft supplies were strewn around my little apartment and all over my parents' garage. I've never had my own "space" before so this was really exciting! I was super giddy driving home from Michaels with these:
I wanted mine to look exactly like Kelley's because I loved it so much and she was so sweet sharing where she found everything! But, I couldn't find it all so I decided I had to be flexible and use what I could find!

Here's my final product!
I love it! I literally can sit and stare at it for hours!

It wasn't expensive either! Each little cube was on sale for 50% off and with my 15% teacher discount they came out to less than $20 a piece! I also found the little gray trays in the Target dollar spot to hold my printer paper and my cardstock. The little gray felt organizers hold my paintbrushes and pens. And my personal scotch laminator fits perfectly on top!

I printed the labels on a gray polka dot background using the adorable font Kelley suggested. It's from Kevin & Amanda called Pea Jo.

I am so proud of myself!

Check out my Etsy Shop to see what kind of things I create!

  5. I'm going to sit next to Kristen and look at it for hours. I LOVE the way this looks. I think, because it's white, everything looks so crisp and clean... and, well, perfect!
    If it makes me happy to look at it, it must make you super happy to be able to use the things that are stored (so neatly!) inside!

    Happy week ahead...

  6. Wow!!!! This is awesome!! I want it! :) I need something like that FOR SURE. My craft "station" is in a closet which means it can get messy. I think I need to put it out in the open! :) I love it. Enjoy creating! Without pressure!
