We have some fun and easy ideas for organizing your craft room with items you already have around your home. So don’t throw out that spaghetti jar or paper box! Take a look at what we did with items one might normally throw away or recycle! It will cost you little or no money…and you’ll be taking some small steps towards crafting in a more earth-friendly way!
The beautiful pink fabric box you see in the photo above was created by the amazing Carla C with the use of her pattern, Case Study: Basic Boxes.

*New episode of The DIY Dish will go live tonight! Find out some fun ways to turn trash into treasure!*
We are happy to be a part of a campaign for a great cause. The Just Ask! about Hereditary Breast and Ovarian Cancer (HBOC) campaign raises money in order to provide cancer screening to women who could not otherwise afford it. In fact, we can all help raise that money by simply clicking the “like” button on the Just Ask Facebook page. $1 will be donated to provide that cancer screening. Isn’t that wonderful?
2. Share a memory or a thought about someone you know who has battled Breast/Ovarian Cancer in the comments section.
Thank you for helping us spread the word about this amazing campaign. We know all too well how cancer of any type can happen to anyone at anytime. We have lost close friends and family to this devastating disease and have also seen many others able to beat it. We have been inspired by the courage and faith of each one of them.
*Giveaway is open to a world-wide audience, 18 years and older. Void where prohibited. Last day to enter is THIS FRIDAY, March 25, 2011.
