Hey!! I've been trying to clean/organize/decorate our office/studio a little at a time. Because really that's all I can manage to get done....I started back in at the beginning of the summer (yes, last summer, 2009!) and am still going...slow and steady wins the race:)
Recently I made a couple of quick, small changes that made a big difference. First, I emptied a lot of my art supplies into mason jars...because that gets rid of boxes and big ugly packaging taking up space, and let's face it, everything looks better in a mason jar!
I just started saving glass jars from things like spaghetti sauce and salsa...let them soak in hot water to remove the labels and then run them through the dishwasher. Now I can transfer a ton of supplies to them and they'll look great on a shelf or my desk:)
I also recently found these really cool graphic print file folders at Target. These make me want to file away receipts and orders!
They came with these cute little stickers for labeling, I like the pop of the chocolate brown border.
12 folders came in a package, 4 each of the 3 designs...the orange Greek key, blue lattice and green quatrefoil.
There's nothing like functional and stylish!! The office is looking so much better now. Anybody else working on their office/craft room? Anyone have any other tips or tricks for getting all this clutter to look good?
