Upcycled Organization

We've been working on re-organizing and streamlining our craft supplies here at the RePlayGround studio. The other day, I began to tackle (hah!) our giant pile of trim, ribbons, webbing and other sewing supplies.

Here's some of the 'before' and 'after' in progress - I used all sorts of random materials to help me put things in order. Thread went into shoeboxes and old plastic storage boxes, and webbing got wrapped around scrap cardboard.

And here's a nice trick I discovered: old, empty spools make perfect places to store ribbon and other small bits of trim. Not the most innovative reuse in the world, but certainly worth keeping in mind!

You know, I find that when I play with my stash and put it in order, I get inspired. Kind of a cool cure for crafter's block. spring cleaning never felt so good!
