How to Organize Craft Supplies

Confessions, people.

How much of your living place is covered in knitting and craft supplies? I know as well as anyone, it gets pretty bad. There are just so many little pieces, as well as big and bulky things, oddly shaped items…it’s a mess.

I didn’t spend hundreds of dollars at The Container Store (it was actually about $5 at Michaels, some garage sale finds and a bunch of Ziploc bags).

Day 74 of the 365 photo challenge is “In A Field Of Green.” This is one of my favorite outfits lately, and short of the necklace, what you see here cost less than $5 at a resale shop. After all, green is my second favorite color, after rainbow.

Things I Love Thursday | Green Things

These random 40-degree days and heavy storms have gotten a rumbling going.

It’s almost I feel like the roots stirring underground, and the seeds quaking with waking seedling tendrils inside.

I can’t wait for spring. I’m going to run around the newly budding forests and take as many pictures as my wee camera will hold.
