Some storage solutions

Thought I'd share one of my favourite areas in my craft studio. It used to be my work table but now the computer sits on it. The little space on the right has been quite bare so I thought it would be a nice spot for my white plastic tote caddy that I picked up at the dollar store from a while back. Inside it is a glass cup, a small metal bin, and a mug. I use it to hold little knickknacks that don't fit anywhere and things that I want close to me when I'm creating stuff:)

The wall behind the computer - where ceramic thingies and a metal bin hangs. Got these from IKEA in the kitchen section. It houses my often used items like my fabric & paper scissors, xacto knife, journaling pens, and awls.

Then there's this wire basket that I also found in the kitchen organization section in IKEA a while back. They don't carry it anymore unfortunately. I stick all my label sticker and packages of fun goodies that I love looking at in here. It's getting really heavy which reminds me that I maybe should do a little purging soon:P.
What's your fave little spot in your craft space that you can't stop staring at every time you pass by it?

I love IKEA and wish we had one closer to us. My house would be more organized if we did. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it.

Love those hanging storage bins. Ikea has so many great storage solutions, it's one of my fav places to shop (Once every 3 years when I can get to one LOL):O)

Love Ikea for storage! I have lots of their little glass spice jars and all my buttons and ribbons are stored in them, sorted by colour and arranged in rainbow order.... I love looking at them :-)
