Inexpensive Craft Room Storage and a Giveaway!

I'm so excited to be moving into a new craft room that already has built-in shelving. Remember the picture I shared a while back? Here's a refresher:

It's kind of ugly right now, but after some paint and trim, I'm going to fill it up with all the things I love and it will be awesome.

Since I've got the craft room on the brain, I've been on the prowl for cute, inexpensive storage options. Remember these clear storage boxes I found at ConsumerCrafts?

They are perfect for holding paper, cards and half-finished projects. And they come in 8 1/2x11, 12x12 and 5x7 sizes. So much better than the cardboard boxes my supplies used to be shoved in.

I really like that they are see-through so I know exactly what supplies I have.

But they are a little plain as-is.

Adorable die-cut chalkboard label stickers to the rescue! Can it get any easier?

Now I can label each bin and keep everything dust-free, organized, and easy to see!

Just a quick tip... don't forget to season your chalkboard labels before writing on them for the first time. It's easy: just rub chalk over the entire surface, then wipe clean and your labels will be seasoned and ready to write on.

Now how about a giveaway?!

The lovely people at ConsumerCrafts are giving away a Cricut Explore machine and one of you might win! Boom shaka laka! You can enter using the Rafflecopter link below.

Thank you, ConsumerCrafts for sponsoring this post!

A Fun New Place To Shop!

With a new house coming our way (we close in two days!), I've been dreaming up all sorts of decor and organizing projects. I've been on the prowl for cool products and good deals. Today I want to share a new favorite website for buying crafting supplies.

ConsumerCrafts.com is a one-stop-shop for all the crafty supplies you need! They have stuff for doll making, soap making, kid crafts, painting, knitting, party hosting and everything in between. It's everything I love all in one place!

Here are a few things I've been drooling over:

Isn't this little metal flower pot cute? I love the burlap label. I want to get three or four to sit on my kitchen windowsill. They come in two sizes. They'd also be cute for holding buttons or hair bows.

I also spotted these mini red lanterns:

I want to buy a bunch of them for my Christmas tree. Add some woodland creatures, a big flannel check treeskirt and how cute would that be?!

I'm buying a bunch of these clear plastic storage boxes:

I need better storage in my craft room and these are the perfect, inexpensive solution. I've got a great idea for them that you'll have to check back in a couple of days to see.

Last little treasure I found:

I have something similar to this wire milk bottle carrier in my craft room and I LOVE it. I put four mason jars in it and use it to hold my scissors and pens. It keeps them accessible but coralled. Love it! It would also be a great eating utensil holder if you're short on drawer space or if you're throwing a party.

ConsumerCrafts.com has something for every crafter. They have great prices and the purchasing process was easy. They also have awesome sales, which you know I love. And shipping is free when you spend $75. Which is way too easy to do with all the stuff you're going to NEEEEEED from them.

Oh, and you won't want to miss their Christmas catalog with coupon. Yay! Christmas!!!

**I was compensated for writing this post, but all the drooling over cute crafting supplies? Yeah, that's all me.
