Friday Favorites


I have so many things saved in my favorite links, but once they go there they never seem to resurface, so I thought I'd start sharing them here. Maybe this can be my virtual rolodex of favorite things.

I've been eyeing teired wire baskets for a while now, but I haven't commited to one yet. This one from Pottery Barn is nice and big. I'd spray paint it white if it were mine, but the price tag defiintely keeps me from buying this version.

On with the Pottery Barn theme... I would love to have this as my tool table in the closet. I'd even love to have that mini fridge in there too. I can always go for an ice cold Coke and chilled chocolate bar when crafting!


This would be cute in Ethan's room filled with stuffed animals.


These are very familiar. I have candy jars in my scrap room storing all of my ribbon rolled onto clothespins. I bought my jars from Walmart.


Super storage like this would be awesome. Can you imagine the shelves filled with brightly colored bins and knick-knacks? Yummy!
And since I happen to have some pictures of my crafty space already on my computer...

Here's a picture of one of the rows of ribbon candy jars I mentioned.


I definitely swear by organizing everything by color. Here's how I keep my paper. The tabs are secured to clear page protectors that I sliced the 3-ring holes off of, so they're just pockets. I keep the scrap pieces in there, so I reach for them first. It really pays off.


I even organize my closet this way.


Okay, my mom is here visiting from Texas, so I'm off for now...

Laura those clothes pins are GORGEOUS!!!! If that were in a store I would be tempted to buy every single ribbon! I love the paper color matched tabs too- FANTASTIC idea. I have a lot of prints but maybe it's time I organize by tone as well. :)

Say hi to Mom from me! :) Oh, and funny thing, my dad IS flying today to Texas for a 2-week business trip lol! (he's going first to Dallas and then Tucson, AZ). Any craft stores I should point him in the area?? :P

(really, my dad is so clueless abroad that I just asked him to bring me back something from starbucks... which I don't have over here argh!)

I loved all your product features. Maybe it'd be easier for you to keep track of them with Pinterest. I signed up a couple weeks ago, and I'm hooked. You have to sign up and wait for an invite (couple days top) but it's really worth it :)

I loved that stack of wire baskets too. Think I'll head over to pottery barn and see how expensive they are....

I love all those things too!!! Thinking I might have to break down and buy some candy jars and clothes pins because my ribbon bucket is a MESS! I will need to work on my paper stash because its a total mess and yours looks wonderful. Now as for my closet... Color coded too!! Even have it color coded by tanks, short sleeves and long sleeves. Crazy I know but it works for me. Thanks for sharing! Have a great time with your mom.
