What a Great Idea!

Feeling slightly brain dead after the holiday season? This is normal, don't panic : ) Here are a few things to help you get sorted out!

This tin can hold ATC cards, ribbon, measuring tools, buttons, brads, gem papers, scraps, beads, pearls, and any other small pieces! Or carry it in your purse...hehe
Don't let the name fool you. The ideas aren't only for Christmas. It's full of winter and everyday fun too! If nothing else, you'll have some gorgeous cards to admire.

I bought these really cool metallic brads. The problem? They somehow exploded into my craft bin. Now. If I had had a Craft Keeper Jar there would not have been a problem!

Clings, clears, papers, and stickers cluttering your crafting area? Go for the Stampendous Storage Solution. You can hang them up too!

Fun, fresh, creative ideas for stamping, card-making, and other crafting projects. How many pages, you ask? 256!

You've gotta love that Tim Holtz has such great taste. This binder is made of faux leather that has a flourish design. It's an attractive way to store your unmounted stamps and acrylic blocks. Why risk losing something you've invested in?

A clear bag with zipper closure and convenient carrying handle. Have paint dabbers, pencils, and/or watercolors that you want to take on a trip? Done. Toss em in the case and they're ready to go!

My friend would kill me if she knew I was exposing her, but she has hundreds of Copic Markers in a large plastic bin. I was looking through for a certain color and couldn't find it. When I did find it, the cap was missing! Sound sadly familiar? You need this.

This soft suede little number has pocket pages for you to store Spellbinders Dies. Not quite impressed yet? The page for small dies holds 10 per page, the medium holds 4 per page, and the large holds 2 per page! Don't have Spellbinders? Not to worry: this case can hold other things too! Gotta love zippable binders.

1. This case is transparent so you can see what you've stored.
2. There are dividers so you can keep separates separated.
3. There's a spot for your chompers!
4. It snaps closed so your stuff is secure and won't escape : )

So...90 pages of card examples, stamps, techniques, a guide to tools & colors, and instructions for other crafty projects like jewelry...how could you even begin to go wrong?! Honestly...I want to go craft right now.

Ah Vera Bradley. Such pretty designs! Sure you could use this as a purse or beach bag, but why not use it as a way to store paper pads or rubber stamps? Going to a friend's for a craft night? Going to a park to do some sketching? Be fashionable with a crafty tote bag! It even has pockets for your pens, pencils and other items! One more thing: it's washable!

With a neat, old-fashioned look, this Craft Spinner will keep your blending tools handy! Never smudge items again in your supply bin with leftover ink. Also, you won't have to buy as many refills if you have a blending tool for each color and you can actually find them!

This 8" x 7" tote bag is made of durable nylon and can store scissors, glues, markers, crayons, pencils, and just about any other small item you can think of!

I've always found that organizing the things around me is a good way to clear my mind and help me relax. Maybe these items will help keep you organized and worry-free!
