I'm in love with the frame! Definitely on the lookout for some like those to paint and hang in the scrap room!

My best organization find was an old wooden cassette tape shelf - it's the perfect size for ink pads! I have more wall than table space so it's perfect. Mine was around $2.50 at Goodwill. I just Googled to find a photo and here's someone using it for just that:

They have a lot more sizes than I do; I mostly have the white Stampin' Up! ones shown on the right which fit just perfectly in each slot.

This was on "The Frugal Crafter" blog and the image is linked; they have a lot of great ideas! I also came across this thread at Splitcoast Stampers that also has tons of ideas (but only a few pics). I hadn't really used Google Image search before (for anything like this, anyway!) so now I'm going to check that out as well!

These are wonderful and so creative. Thank you for sharing. I think I have one of those pop boxes in the garage. It's been sitting around for years. Now I can give it a purpose. I also love the frame idea.

Sadly, I have no organization skills...mine moved away to AZ (immom2anc!) and my room is a shambles again! When my boy moves back to college this week, I plan on hitting that room hard and gathering stuff for a garage sale!

I'll be back in November to visit if you want some help then! LOL. Just keep it to a mini-avalanche until then. ;)

I used to have a peg board, but now I don't have the space. I did see a great idea using a large photo frame with wire strung through and the half round buckets hanging off of it, so they sit flat against the wall. I'll see if I can find the pic for you. :)

mine is not very ingenious but I took a towel bar and some little hanging baskets that I bought at IKEA and have all my essentials stored right above my desk :) and I took an old under cabinet shelf that I found and put it under my deska nd it houses the current pictures I am working on!

and I repurposed and old shelf and put all my flowers on it....

and last but not least, I also repurposed one of the kids changing tables! it houses all of my albums on top, some sewing stuff and extras on the middle shelf and the bottom shelf just has some little extra storage drawers...the best thing about this is I can hang my bags from it that I like to just grab and go when I go to a crop :)

Love the frame with the chicken wire. Showed my daughter so I can use it in her room. She would rather corck board but that with work too. Might even paint the wall the shape of the fram with magnetic and chalkboard paint from Home Depot. Will use the chicken wire for me.

Loving all the different ways people are creating storage for their stuff. I hope more Cherries will post pics of the ideas they've come up with for their scrap rooms. I'm finally beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel in mine,'s a looooong tunnel. ;)
