Busy busy

I have been so busy for the past two weeks, I’ve been unable to publish my blog post. But as soon as things start to slow down I end up sick again. Blah I am so ready for summertime. But anyways on to the real reason your here. 🙂

So I  have been cleaning my craft room like crazy lately (and this time it actually looks like I’ve done something) trying to set the room up into something that works for me. I have been having trouble coming up with ideas on how to organize everything and where to put it so that I can quickly and easily get to it. I hate not being able to find things when I need them. Which would make you think I would be organized, but ohhhhh how wrong you are. I am super messy, and so unorganized its not even funny. You can ask anyone this, they will wholeheartedly agree. hehe

I’ve been trying to come up with something that I can store all my beads in as well as a place to store the tackle box I got to carry things back and forth to a show. (hehe Don’t judge me, the tackle box was $20 cheaper then the same thing that was labeled “jewelry storage”) Well my husband came up with a great idea, an so far it is working out perfectly! He suggested that I get one of those great big tool boxes on wheels. After I thought about it, that’s what I did! I still don’t have it organized, but as you can see from the pictures below it is working out great. And the best part, for all 3 pieces, 8 drawers in total cost me $140 before taxes! A big thank you to Lowes, and Taskforce for having and making just what I wanted and needed. ♥

This drawer makes me the most excited, being able to see all of my seed beads, and have them sorted into sizes! LOVE IT! Now I just need to get more tubes and get rid of the bags of beads I have, and I’ll be all set!
Best part is I don’t have to carry all of them with me when I go to a show, I can just pick what colors I’d like to bring and off I go! IMG_2497

All of my tools fit nicely up in the top part of the tool box, no more randomly leaving them laying on my desk.  (For now anyways)

As you can see it is still a little messy, but its well on its way to being organized. And now even with it being messy like that I know where all of my beads are. Whenever I buy something new I place it in the very bottom draw before organizing them into the proper draw. Now if only I can get the rest of my craft room to function as well I’d be happy.

But well enough of my ramblings about a toolbox. I’ll post the links so you can check out the toolboxes out for yourself if you’d like.
I can’t believe I just made a whole blog about a toolbox, but what can I say. I really really love it!
How do you get organized?

This is what I’ve been working on the past two weeks. 🙂 All of these items will be up for sale on my Facebook page within the next day or two. 🙂
