So first up is a way to display some things that spark creativity or gather ideas for my projects. I know pinterest is huge in this way, but sometimes I like the old school way. Chelsea at Two Twenty One made this fabric covered board with nail head trim. I love the detail!

I have a lot of little supplies for my crafts and sewing and keeping them tucked away with like items in fabric covered boxes would be perfect! Amy at Homey Oh My is working on her office space now and has a ton of great ideas like this one. The possibilities of what you could stash in these are endless.

I’ll also need a spot to put papers that need to be dealt with in some way and  these covered cereal boxes from Soho Sonnet would be the perfect solution. And they would be completely free because I have all of the supplies somewhere in this office….if I can find them!
