One case in point are these containers I purchased last fall from JoAnn Fabrics and Crafts. I had admired them and thought they would go perfectly with our family room decor, but I was hesitant to purchase them because after the fall season, I would have to store them away. That seemed like an unnecessary purchase and one that required storage space.
The second box holds "seasonal" items that I might be working on. In November and December the box contained our Christmas cards, Christmas letter, and postage stamps. Having the easy access helped me to get my cards done in a timely manner and have a place to put "it" all away in plain sight.
How do you store your precious things in plain sight? Please share and keep on creating with everything that makes you happy!
