When I picture the windows open in a room, I imagine warm sunshine streaming through as the wind gently blows the curtains. Fresh air hits me and I am compelled to take a deep breath. The refreshing energy fills my soul. Of course there are only certain seasons when it's practical to open the windows, but my goal is to fill my heart, home, and family with a beautiful serenity that always makes me think the windows are open!

A little dollar store organization

My craft room has been in serious need of some organization.  I still have a ways to go, but wanted to share this cheap organization idea I used.


At the dollar store I picked up some colorful baskets to store ribbons, fabric paint, etc.  The shelf was made by salvaged pieces from an old house… as in FREE.  :-)
I just painted the piece of wood and the rod and put them on the metal brackets.

These two plastic baskets hold scrap fabric and jelly roll fabric.

purple wire basket and ribbon

Rolls of ribbon hang directly on the rod as well as in the basket.

These baskets hold odds and ends like buttons, craft paint, scrap book scissors, pipe cleaners, etc.
Useful and handy, yet out of the way and no longer cluttering my work area!
