Creations by Jeff


The story behind this great ribbon holder is a sweet one: a husband who likes to make crafty storage for his wife and turns it into a business.

After Jeff's wife displayed it on her blog people started asking if he would be willing to start making and selling them, and so he decided that he was willing to do them for sale.

Jeff can make many different variations of this, and also very conveniently they can be shipped to wherever you want as well.

You can read and see all about them here.

Nicole Petersen's studio


I believe this is just one wall of her studio. Let's hope that Nicole will share with us the rest, which was featured in CK October 2006.
I love the use of the available space with those wire baskets on odd shaped shelves full with stickers and embellishments packs


Love this beautiful Typist drawer used for rubber stamps.

Really Useful boxes

Thanks to Becks Fagg and her blog I have come across this new storage product:


The UK based crafters are well aware of the Really Useful Boxes, as they are called, or RUB as they are written on the boards. I have quite a few of the boxes in three sizes and, although they are a really good product, they are not perfect for me. The reason is simple: I like boxes that don't stack on top of each other because when I want to get to the bottom one I don't want to have to take all of them out to get to the bottom. However, the stacking situation makes lots of people happy, so who cares what I think!
I also think that this box could be great for Debbie's rub on storage idea which could be adapted for stickers sheets.

Debbie de Wilde Rub On storage idea


Debbie's idea in her own words:
I bought an expandable file folder (Creative Memories Expandable File Mate) It has different sections with loose file folders. I organized my rub-ons theme wise (Alphabet, decorative, numbers, kids, christmas, quotes and so on) Now I just have to take the file folder out and there are my rub-ons. So far: This is a great way of storing your rub-ons. It could very well work for stickers too! One last tip: To make sure that the paper backing of the rub ons stays in place, I staple it to my rub-ons.

Lisa Itatani's studio


In her own words: I remodeled our garage after I found this great apothecary counter at a local auction house. It was too big to fit into my house, so had to go into the garage. After a month of remodeling, it has a new home. I will be putting in some tables after I finish unpacking all the boxes.You can her work and read about her life here.

Ivy Pe latest ideas


Apart from being a very talented paper crafter, Ivy Pe has great ideas on how to store things.
I like this entry in her blog where she recycles ideas and explains evolution on the storage front. Above there is the way Ivy stores her patterned paper, an idea from Real Simple.

Regarding the bit about buttons, I believe it is important to change those things that don't work. Just think what type of things you don't use often even though you like them. Provably you don't use them because they are stored in a non inviting way for you, ie, big jars of bottomless buttons, impossible to reach for that little one.


And the above picture shows how Ivy stores pre-scored cards. I have a very similar way and I have to say is pretty great to find easily the right colored/texture card.
