Stroll though all the posts this month and see the ideas the Altered Design Team shared!!!
 I have a quick St. Patrick's Day Card!

Papers from Robin's Nest
Now for the last tips of the month on organizing your space!
I have a friend, Beth, that has an awesome little bead store here in Bremerton, WA.  It is  called Echo ArtWorks, it is filled top to bottom.  It is a very small space and has an amazing amount of beads, tools, and to much more in there.  I thought I would share a few of the ways she keeps organized!
  Bottles and jars contain anything from seashells to vintage Lucite!

 Then there are baskets....
Baskets display Lucite, ribbons, yarns and more!

Here is something you may not have ever seen....
These vintage metals are displayed on a repurposed Vintage French Bottle drying rack!
The posts bottles would rest on make great post to hang things on...
to use wasted space Beth added "S" hooks to hang more items from.

 A Printer Block Cabinet has a lot of cubbies for tons of storage!
I love the color coordinated drawers.

Anything with drawers makes wonderful storage!!!
  Thrift store finds make great units to store things! 

This has got to be my favorite!!! 
Do you have any old skirt hangers!!!! 
Put one or two on the wall and store one off items!
Every bit of wall space is used...

with shelves and racks of beads and more beads.
Maybe you picked an idea or two from the store tour.
Thank you Beth for letting me share pictures of your store!
I hope you have gotten some ideas this month to help you organize your creative space!
Comment today and share your favorite organization tip you read about this month.... or maybe you have one you would like to share.
Now off  to MARCH!
