If you're like me, you wonder where to put it all of your beads, tools, jewelry making supplies, and how to organize it for ease of use. After taking stock of my own stash, I've come up with a few simple tips that will make your workspace less cluttered and your stash easier to use.
Have a look around your home and determine a good spot to sit and work, and a place to store your supplies. If you don't have a desk or tabletop in an area with good lighting, invest in a good task lamp such as an OttLite. As far as storage, even if you're limited to one corner of a room, or part of a wall, you can still make good use of the space by storing your supplies in an organized fashion. Get creative when looking for items that can be used as a workspace or storage area by visiting local garage sales, flea markets, or second-hand stores for items like old dressers, a hutch, or bookshelves.
