Mmm. You know that feeling when you have a specific project in mind, and you rush to grab your needle nose pliers...only to see that they've suddenly run off to Narnia along with your library card and a couple of mismatched socks?
Yeah, my craft supplies, once neatly kept in their little cubbies, have since expanded into random boxes and bags throughout the house. To start, here's the round-up of the jewelry making supplies (or what I estimate to be about 85% of it):
First I re-purposed my button tray to hold all the findings. Jump rings, earring posts, chains, etc. Shaking this box will just move things from one cell to another, so I decided to keep everything in little baggies to minimize random things flying out upon opening.
knot maker, various pliers and cutters, and a box of charms.
This time I bagged the contents, and left the lids off. I'm still not convinced this is the best method, but we'll see how it works out.
Though it's not very pretty (no coordinated, matching boxes), it is nice and neat, back in its cubby!
How do you store your jewelry making supplies? Any good tips?
