100th Post for 2010 - Giveaway!

This marks the count for my 100th post for this year! That means since My 1st post on June 15th, 2007...I'm at 614 posts! I do roughly 150-200 posts per year, and I'm thinking that maybe by the end of next year I'll be able to celebrate my 1,000th post? :)

So on to the giveaway....My scrapbook /altered art group is having a local Craft & Hobby garage sale at my place at the end of June. And since then, I've been filling up my garage with things to sell!
And as you can see I have a lot of stuff!
So for my giveaway...as I sort, I will fill a pretty good sized box (12X9 4"deep) with "studio de-stash".
For your chance to win, comment here with idea's you have found that work to store your stuff. Earn a extra chance to win by linking to your blog or flickr to show photo's of your organization!
If I pick you (by random # generator) and if I can't contact you because your blog profile is private or you did not leave a active e-mail addy, I will promptly pick another winner.
I will pick someone Monday Morning. Good luck to you! and good luck to me in sorting my stuff!

i found that tall clear jars work best for buttons and ribbon and pencil cases (hard plastic ones) work great for floss! still don't have the best solution for my paper though LOL :D

Oh how fun! I love using basket and chest for storage. Old jars for buttons and embellishment. Old suitcases for vintage linens and such. And of course lots and lots of shelves..

Wow- you do have a lot of stuff! I also like mason jars or old glass milk bottles for buttons and stones, compartment plastic boxes for beads, and colorful photo boxes from Michaels for most of my other stuff. I like to sort and label my stuff :)

I am re-doing my space right now and I just bought one of those paper racks that stores use as fixtures. Also, I am going to put up a wood shelf above my crop table since I live in such a small place. Good luck on organizing!

This is a beyond awesome giveaway! :) I have a work area to clean out myself tonight. I'll be using lots of jars and baskets too. I have a bunch of old style clothespins I will be wrapping ribbon around and a big jar to put them in for something nice to look at. Good luck with your sorting! ~Lanie

Oh, Michelle, what a great giveaway! I use plastic drawers or various sizes and clear plastic boxes for stuff on the shelves. Lots of labels!!

I use a combination of solid metal and metal wire shelving, backets, and shelf organizers to get the most out of my 10 x 20 space. For small items, I use spice jars and some IKEA jars my assistant gifted me with. Also, ANY vintage jar is fair game to hold rocks, scrabble tiles, game pieces, and whatever else crosses my mind.

WOW, how is this for luck? I just took a picture of my studio TODAY and posted it on my blog. It shows most of my organizers and those pictures are at the top of my post!

That is going to be one fabulous Garage Sale with all of those goodies.
I love using Glass jars and clear plastic storage containers with lids. I love to see what's in things so I can just grab what I want and not have to open a million boxes looking for something

I hoard a lot of ribbon too - so using old clothes airers and an old wooden play pen, taken apart pieces...they are hung on the wall and boy do they give a beautiful display of colour and texture!!

I like the small plastic or metal storage units with the tiny drawers for small images buttons, letters etc. I LOVE the 4 unit open topped tackle boxes from walmart, they have a carry handle, ans then you can stand them on their side when not being carried and each unit pulls out like a drawer, and each unit is one of those compartment-ed containers they sell in the bead isles at mike's etc.

Good luck at your sale!

I would love to be in your garage sale. I'm in the same boat, I have tonnes of supplies and running out of room. I also have my annual garage sale. I keep my unmounted on a photo binders (4x6); I use tackle box for my charms, punch outs and buttons. My magazines are stored in binders with the plastic inserts or in the magazine boxes.
