Good morning! Can you believe it is almost time for school to start? We only have 3 more weeks until the big day. Eek! :) We have been making our back to school list of what we need this year. It's very long! ha! I have 5 kiddos going to school this year. (Yes, that’s all of them!) Whew!

You can also find lots of Project Amazing ideas using these products right {HERE}. Today I’d love to show you this Easy DIY Ribbon Storage idea using Command™ Picture Hanging Strips.

Easy Craft Room Storage Idea #gearlove

This post is part of a sponsored campaign for Socialstars & Office Depot. #GearLove #GearUpForGreat

Good morning! It’s Friday! What are you up to today? I hope something fun! Do you have gear you can’t live without? You know the things you use every single day. I’m sure it’s not a surprise to you, but the gear I can’t live without has to be craft supplies & a way to organize them. I love the organizing of the craft supplies *almost* as much as the craft supplies! haha! Earlier this year I showed you how I organized my craft room (also known as my “craft area”!) in our master bedroom. Since then I have been tweaking the space & adding a little bit more storage to my space. You can never have too much storage! Of course, I headed to Office Depot to pick up a few supplies to help me. I had been eyeing these cute storage containers for a while now. I love that you can #gearupforgreat & find just about everything you need for so many creative & organizational projects at Office Depot. So keep reading to see this Easy Craft Room Storage Idea! It’s perfect for adding a little bit more storage to a small space. :)
