Where Do You Store Your Creativity?

A while back on my FB page I shared this photo of a fun flea market find:




Today I'm focusing on that rather fab (ok. Outrageously fab vintage Norwegian sewing box). It's been in the garage a while taunting me. Needed a major cleaning and the wherewithal to sort through the junk inside of it. Incoming piles from the World's Longest Yard Sale (and the purchase of an adult size bike for Boy Wonder which means I will NEVER be able to park the car in the garage again - sigh) meant I had to get off my duff and git 'r done.
Back in February I got some cool metal boxes at The Vintage Marketplace (refresh your memory here) which I eagerly came home and filled with craft supplies. Which were full to capacity right from the start. I've been stuffing the drawers ever since. You see where I'm going with this don't you?!




I'd like to say this is how I will be keeping things looking but let's keep it real. You know, and I know you know that I "styled" it for the shoot!




How will it really look in everyday life? Let's peek inside.




Glitter and glue and stamps, oh my!




Yep. That's just how I roll. Glitter in unopened packages because I'm afraid of using it up and losing my stash. Further compounded by the unending stream of someday projects filling up ridiculous quantities of brain/storage space.
At least she looks good from the outside!
So what fun vintage pieces do you use to "store your creativity"?

Same problem with glitter here. A sign of a hoarder I am afraid. I have one of the same sewing boxes still holding the stuff that came inside when I bought it. Now I am absolutely inspired to actually USE it instead of trying to decide what to do with it. Thanks Carrie!
