Craft Clearout and Pretty Boxes

My husband has been in Leeds this weekend, so I decided to take the opportunity to attack some of the things that have been accumulating in the house (two extra fridges, a mattress in the front room, an extra ironing board and plenty more). Thankfully, he got rid of most of the big stuff before I got home on Friday, but I thought it would be nice for him to come home to a clean house and I realised my craft stuff was starting to make my bedroom look a mess and not somewhere you would want to rest and relax.

I hunted down some nice boxes on the way home from work and set to work culling and organising my crafty bits. I managed to get the stack of paper and bits and pieces on the floor packed away and my little bureau organised:

This green tray was my favourite find (from TK Maxx) and means I can see what embellishments I have available rather than hunting through draws and boxes.

I managed to hide away most of the things that had been sitting in view and getting covered in dust.

The big rainbow box has blank cards and envelopes, the burgundy box has finished cards. The small rainbow box holds all of my lettering and the pastel floral box is for 3D sticker and embellishment packs. The pink chest of draws is for all of my scrap paper (organised by colour) and the flat box on top of it holds all sorts of ribbon.

This little suitcase was my other favourite find and now houses my beads, so that I can take them anywhere around the house with me.
