Studio Friday: Storage/Containers

This weeks challenge from Studio Friday: How do you store your arts and crafts supplies in your studio? Where do you store them? Do you have enough space for it? Maybe some of them are even unusual??! And how about that space under the bed...?!

These pastel beauties are "This" (the pink bird) and "That" (the green bird). Their nest is a crytal goblet known as bead purgatory. It's where broken, damaged, or just plain too ugly to use beads go to live forever. Or at least until the goblet gets full and I bequeath them to children for kids' craft projects :)

The goblet is low since I just emptied it recently, but this is so pretty to look at in my studio, especially when the morning sunlight refracts through the crystal. I love how things that were once discolored and broken are transformed into such a pretty studio accent just by being stored prettily.

Your pastel birds are very sweet. And that's a great way to display them. I have some old crystal goblets and glasses.

You given me a great idea!

Thanks for the comment!

I just realised that I didn't have my email there. But I have put it on now.

I do still want to take a class to get that extra professional look.
