So one of the things that I really wanted to work on this year was streamlining my business. I'm taking another class this spring semester, and may be headed to graduate school in the fall, so being organized is really a necessity. As you can see from the photographs, this was NOT happening.
The first thing I did was replace that white drawer set with something on wheels. This is right next to some built in cabinets, and with those drawers there, we were not able to get into that cabinet whenever we wanted, without dragging those drawers out, which was a pain.
In this first drawer, I have most of my shipping and packaging supplies in the front basket, and some miscellaneous craft supplies in the back basket.
In the next drawer, I have stringing materials, and wire - fiber products and ribbon in the front, and beading wire and regular wire and tools in the back basket.
I'm using that mug to hold my paintbrushes that I use for my clay stuff - that's not all of them, certainly. Part of the reason I have them there, instead of with my clay stuff is because they often just fall to the bottom of my clay supply bin. I'll dig out the rest here shortly. That mug was given to me when I graduated college (the University of Arizona - hence the big A), but the handle has a big crack in it, so it's not suitable for holding drinks anymore. The little bowls in the corner there are good for holding beads while I'm working.
