New Stuff in my Studio


Here are my new "cubes" I got at IKEA. It has helped tremendously to organize my supplies and gives me a place to display artwork. I like to have things out where I can see it to use it. After I took these pictures, I decided to use the two lower cubes to hold two sewing machines for easy access.

This is my thread rack. The wall racks are wooden silverware trays I bought at Target. I put hangers on the back and they are perfect for holding spools of thread.

The next photo is a photo holder I found at IKEA. You bend all the spokes up and it holds some of my ATCs for display. Notice the little jars of buttons? I got them from a scrapbook store. They have such cool colors like the spring green, watermelon and aquas that I like.

This next picture is a little holder for my dyed tags. I love the color of the tags (dyed with Easter egg dye). The large jar holds ribbons not on a spool. The spool ribbons are in my ribbon box on top of my cubes as you can see in the picture. OK, that's the new stuff for now.

Hi Vivian, just found your blog recently! Love your re-vamped space! What fun it must be to spend time there. I was looking at the ribbon jar and I believe that I see a polka dot ribbon like ones that I bought at the Mid_Atlantic Quilt show 2 years ago! I love those ribbons and use them in my postcards frequently. Will visit again soon.
