Crate Craft Holder - Pinterest Win!

Saturdays have become a day to show you some my home projects, usually they have something to do with scrapbooking, but this one really doesn't have anything to do with scrapbooking. I'm going to show it to you anyway because I just love it. Perhaps you can use it to store some of your scrapbooking supplies (for those of you more traditional scrappers) but for you digital scrapbookers....Well, maybe you could use it for your kids craft stuff like I did.

I actually got this idea from pinterest (love pinterest!). I saw a pic where you use an old bottle crate  to store craft supplies. Genius! I scored one at a local thrift store for less than $20 and I actually saw plenty as I was browsing. So I took my pick. I wasn't sure if I would like how it looked or if it would even really work right. I got it home, had the girls sort the stuff out and then I put it on our school bookshelf. I love it! It keeps everything nice and neat and it looks kind of cool.

So, even though this has nothing to do with digital scrapbooking, I hope you can use the idea to organize some of your other craft stuff.

I have seen this on pinterest too! I would love to do it but I am yet to find a crate that is in good condition and/or that has a reasonable price tag!

Come on over my way! I've spotted so many in the local thrift and antique stores. Most of them are around $20....some a lot more, some less.
