My Creative Space - Pretty Storage Space

Those of you who remember this post about the Ikea cubbyhole shelving Mr Cheeky Monkeys bought for me, will probably also remember that it was purchased because I am rather messy and struggle with craft storage issues.  I love my shelving solution, but am still on the hunt for more smaller (and perferably subdivided) storage drawers and containers to put into each cubbyhole.

Now those of you who are fans of Kaisercraft products will know that they produce a multitude of little drawers and storage containers for avid papercrafters to assemble and decorate themselves.  I absolutely love them, but the cost can be a little prohibitive (especially if you have to buy pretty papers and embellishments too).

Soooo, I was pretty pleased to receive a large discount coupon for Spotlight last week and quickly rushed off to see what I could grab at a bargain!  I settled on this nine drawer set as I thought it would be a nice size for fitting into my Ikea shelves (now that I'm home, a 12 drawer set may have been better, but oh well).

I chose papers from the Kaisercraft "Secret Admirer" range, thinking they would go well with the paint colours I already had at home.  The gorgeous vintage buttons embellishing each drawer were a gift from a friend (who will probably be reading this so, THANK YOU, you know who you are and you're a legend).  I could probably add more embellishments, but I probably won't since these drawers will predominantly be sitting in my larger shelving unit.  Now I have no excuse not to store my craft materials neatly when there is a pretty set of drawers waiting to be used!
