Creation Station Clean Up

The Creation Station really needed a huge tidy after Christmas. I tend to dump things in there "out of the way" over the Christmas period and use it as a quick wrapping station so it was a mess......definitely no photos......too embarassed! You may have seen my recycled storage containers here. I didn't stop there, no siree. Now I am covering shoeboxes! They are going to look so pretty on my shelves!

Something else that needs attention is my creation inspiration - aka: magazine collection. Yep, my collection is a BIG FAT MESS!  I bought nice blue fabric boxes from Ikea last year. They fit my Expedit shelves and I was planning to store my mags in these.

I really wanted some divisions in the containers so turned to my trusty core boards......love core board! I also use it to make mini bolts for my fabric storage....see this post.

I cut them to the correct size and labelled them with some blackboard labels I found at the Dollars and Cents shop last week. What a find! I have coveted these on USA blogs and I was thrilled to find them at such a good price.......going back to clean them out tomorrow!

2 containers sorted and filled........3 (or more) to go.


  1. Mags present a problem for storing don't they! Your boxes look good though - I would need too many boxes for the number of magazines I have!!

  2. mmm Love those blackboard labels - very clever - I am on the hunt now - just as well I live at the opposite end of town . . .

  3. how neat and tidy they all look Cath,well done.xx

  4. It's a big job, but it always feels so good when it's done

  5. so lovely to be organised and in such a pretty way too!
