A peek at my shelves and treasures in my newly organized creative space

Once again, inspired by blogger Shabby Vintage Junk, All my goodies are gathered and sorted in clear jars, and various other containers that I had handy.
Instead of labels, if it wasn't abundantly clear what is inside the jars, I hung one object on the jar to represent what it holds.

Some of my favorite little trinkets and goodies live on this shelf too.
I also thinned out my collection of tidbits and you can find these treasures in my Etsy shop.
And a prized rotating bin is put to use, with more treasures, and supplies.

Getting the Creative space in order

I think my creative space is starting to take shape.  I've actually added more to this room to make it serve it's purpose better. But I've also re-defined it's purpose and gotten rid of a lot of stuff that did not need to be in here.

I organized and condensed my tid-bits of creativity in clear jars via the inspiration of fellow blogger Shabby Vintage Junk.
 See the before photo at the bottom of this post to see just how far this area has come.

This area has been greatly de-cluttered
I have no closet in this room, so I fashioned a make-shift divider with this old dresser.

Behind it are bins of my Etsy inventory, giving this room some more functionality.

As promised here is a before shot from a few years ago.  Creativity is Messy!!!!

A little Bling for those Spesky Slip Covers

Here's a quick and simple project for you.

 I'm not a huge fan of slip covers, but in the case of this old plaid sleeper sofa in our guest room, it was our best option. I got tired of the ties on the arms (well I accidentally tore one off) and so I decided to substitute some old brooches. 

I love the result.
