I love pretty things, in pretty packages. Being able to look at lovely things on the walls of my office and craft room, and around the space where I spend most of my work day inspires me. When things are organized, bright, and easy to find, it makes me happy, calms me, and leaves me wanting to spend more time in that space, and create even more lovely things.
Although I’m pretty sure this pen box is going to last about 24 hours on my desk before it ‘disappears’ into my daughter’s bedroom. She was eyeing it while I was making it and already commented that it’s in her favorite colors. I might have to nail it to my desk in the middle of the night I think.
This pen (or pencil) box is the perfect addition to the office of all you everyday overachievers, like me, and you really don’t need any crafty skills to put it together either, even though it looks like you do.

Have I mentioned I have a craft room and office in our new house? No? It's huge. Like master bedroom size. The teen is none too happy that I put my name on the door and claimed it as mine before he had a chance. It has a beautiful big window overlooking our cul-de-sac and a thick beam running under the roof line. There are no built-in closets or shelves though. Well, unless you count the bench under the big window. It is also one of the last rooms in the house to be unpacked. I have been digging through boxes looking for supplies, spending a fortune at craft stores when I can't find what I need, and the room has somehow become covered in glitter and paint and stickers. Already.
Last weekend I had my husband assemble shelves for me. I have 5 large 5-shelf shelving units along the back wall. This will house the majority of my party planning and craft supplies in containers and boxes. I've been gathering a lot of inspiration for my craft room/office from Pinterest. You can view my 'decorating' board to see some of the gorgeous craft rooms I have pinned.
With my shelving now up I started picking up containers this week to store some of my craft supplies in.
I found some large First Street brand plastic kitchen storage containers at Smart & Final this week. They were only $3.59 each. They are the perfect size for my shelves and although I love the look of glass jars and containers, unfortunately with small children who think my craft room is also their play room these aren't very practical for me.
I plan on filling quite a few shelves with these. They are perfect for holding foam letters and shapes, pom poms, buttons, sequins, fabric scraps, feathers, stamps, and cookie cutters. There's a smaller size too that are $2.39 each so I plan on picking up a few of those too. They'll be great for holding items such as popsicle sticks, glue sticks, and tape.
