Help! I Have Cute Plastic Bin Disorder!






Ha. This morning as I looked at my very messy studio desk, I realized that I couldn't get any work done because my desk was cluttered with yet more tins and plastic bins that I got at Target this week. Does anyone else share my affliction? I tell myself that I "NEED" them to organize my craft stuff, but soon I think I am going to "need" a new room to organize my craft bins and buckets! But I just love them - I love their bold shiny colors and junk-holding ability. Look what a mess I have going on in my studio! They don't seem to be doing their job.
On another note, check out this cool critter I saw this week - he is a Pileated Woodpecker. Huge and beautiful and not something you see every day. He actually let me walk up fairly close to him to get this shot. Cool!

Also - new ribbon flowers for sale in my shop this week - check them out! Trinkets.
Okay - off to fill some bins. :)

what a fantastic shot of the woodpecker ! I love those new button flowers too ! I think you have that affliction bad, maybe you need to craft something with some of them and put them in your shop !

Hi Laurie! I'm like this too! What you didn't get to see in my pics of kawaii shots in my studio is, the really messy part of the studio! I too, love all sorts of containers & strangely, buy containers & then try to fill them up!! Post more pics here please - I too, love seeing glimpses of other people's studios!!!

I hear you, girl! I buy them, and buy them and fill them up but still can't seem to find the supplies I'm looking for quickly. Please let me know if you find a cure!
