Saturday afternoon Oscar and I organized our craft cupboard. I’ve never posted it before because it looked like a bomb went off in it, and no one could go in except I, as only I knew how to take things out, like Jenga – so nothing would fall out. I decided the cupboard was originally designed for Oscar – Part of the reason we extended the counter into the eat in kitchen was to gain extra storage space for things like this. Anyways, I needed to address making it more easy to find things. I added in more shelves from Ikea, went to the dollar store and stocked up on more craft supplies so the cupboard was stocked better and, emptied it all out so I saw what we were working with.
I collect jars – Jam jars, pickle jars (the best) as they are awesome for storing items in. Although I prefer big plastic bins for markers and crayons, as you have to sort to find the best colours – jars are great for dollar store craft items like wood balls, sticks, pegs and glitter. On one of the doors I cut a page protector in half and taped it to the door, so it was a clean pocket to hold Oscar’s sticker collection. In plain sight – more likely to get used.
