Work Desk Wednesday.....

Hi!
Got super secret Create 10 class stuff going on on my desk at the mo which I can't share much of, just a ickle bit of a peek.......

So I thought I'd share peeks of storage stuff instead. This is how I store my scrapbooking stuff, it took me a while to figure out a good way of organizing it because I have to fit other stuff in here too and it doesn't always stay organized but I've found if you have a sort out around every month it keeps neat and organized otherwise it just tends to grow out of it's space! So if you're working in a small space that's defo a top tip to keep it manageable.
OK so this is a long tall unit, I got in in a sale in Tesco I think it was about £19. It was just the right size to fit in the space I had for it.
Top shelf, scraps of fabric and photos ready to scrap...
Next shelf, papers and cardstock. I try and only keep a small amount at a time. The sweetie jar is just there as a quirky 'book end' they don't actually get eaten!

Then there's the space for other organised bits and pieces and my current scrapbook album. It's almost full this one so it'll be moving soon.
Then finally there's a shelf for ribbons and other bits. The basket was packaging for a prezzie I got, it just fit in that space so I could re-use it.
So how do you keep organised in a small space? Maybe you've got a top tip to share?
Peek at more 'workspaces' today on Juila's blog here.

Love your space and how you've organised it. Can't believe you have a sweetie jar with sweets in that don't get eaten - would never happen in my house! x

The wee bit of your LO I can see looks great! Love the sweet jar too!

I'm an organised crafter too. I lead a very busy life so have no time for hunting for things so everything has a place and it has to be put back in it's place....a bit OCD really but it works for me :-)
