Craft room update...

(Pardon the blurriness, the sun was too bright, even with the blinds closed)

My craft room is pretty small, so I've been trying to think of a creative way to save space, and not get rid of some of the small things that clutter up the desktop. I had Mason jars with markers, thread, brads, little stamps, and other things, but all those jars lined up took up pretty much all of my work space. So sometimes when I want to make something, I have to carry the tools downstairs to make it...which defeats the purpose of having a craft room, no?

So, I decided to use some of the wall space that was previously covered with a large dorm-style bulletin board. I hung up a shelf and lined up all the Mason jars on it. Under the shelf, I hung a smaller French message board that I made a while ago. It holds less memories, but it's much more stylish and grown up.

Here are some pictures of the new setup. I always forget the before picture! Maybe next time...

New clean desktop!

Here's a close-up of the jars:
