    Hey Anna! Beads and wire…sounds like fun! When I was in high school my dad gave me a little cabinet thingy made for holding nuts and bolts to organize all my beads. It had about 30 little plastic drawers and worked great!

    I’m at a loss about what to do with the wire…lol!

    Lisa – I know exactly what you mean and it seems like I never have the tutorials when I’m in the mood to organize a bit…now I do.

    I’m glad it can help you too! Thanks for your sweet comment!

    Thank you so much for featuring my closet organizer. I just realized I was getting a lot of traffic from your website and I really appreciate the shout out.

    love your site, first of all. I recently discovered that if I cut the top of my medium size Arm & Hammer scoopable cat litter boxes, and wrapped them in my favorite wrapping paper, that they were the perfect size to store my scrap paper in without bending the paper. and they fit nicely on my bookshelf. I just cut the box like a magazine box angled on the side. wrapped, secured with adhesive spray, and a label for the end. :)
