If you have the same luck as me, when people find out you are an artist they offer you their unwanted craft supplies. Well how could I say no to free stuff?

The biggest challenge when having large amounts of materials is keeping them organized and easy accessible. The key is to keep yourself from drowning under a sea of fabric and buttons, and those old curtain clips (that you think are outdated, but maybe they’ll come back in style by the time you actually get around to making curtains). Yes, it is a problem.

I’ve put together a little roundup of clever ways for you to keep your craft supplies under control. The links below each image will take you back to the original source.
