Office Reorganize

We're in the process of turning my sewing/crafting studio into a nursery for our soon to be new baby. I feel very fortunate to still have some space available to move my sewing/craft cabinet out near the table in the “great room” (those of you who’ve been to our house are probably laughing… there’s not much “greatness” to our main living space, but it’s not exactly the kitchen, not exactly a dining room, and relatively open to the living room, so I’m going with “great room”). I have a big cabinet that has housed 2 different sets of covered boxes in various sizes that I’ve picked up at discount stores here and there. I decided that since I was making the sacrifice of my entire room I should ease the blow a bit by getting all new matching boxes for my cabinet that will better utilize the space that is available in the cabinet. I ordered a total of 25 boxes in different sizes from The Container Store and managed to fit every sewing/crafting/Elle Belle business supply that was not only in the cabinet previously, but also everything that was in a two drawer file cabinet, a floor to ceiling book shelf, and my machine itself… it’s amazing what a difference the right storage containers can make! I downloaded a cool free font from to add a stylish touch to the labels. Finding all my supplies has never been easier or looked this good!

I'm totally an organization geek and am drooling over how much you fit in there. It looks great!

By the way, I nominated you for the Honest Scrap Award:
