wire and fabric and paper, oh my!

i was cruising the aisles at hobby lobby yesterday and i came to a screeching halt when i spied this.....a sturdy wire holder that holds three nifty wire baskets. it stands about 32" tall, and when the curved wire hooks on the sides of the baskets are inserted into the round loops on the stand.....


it looks like this! and when those baskets are filled with all of the rainbow-fabric-bliss from my stash.....


it looks like this!! it's my absolute new favorite storage solution!! and the best news is i didn't have to use that 40%-off coupon that was burning a hole in my pocket.....it was already marked at 50% off!!!
so, how did i end up using my 40%-off coupon?


well, even though my paper stash overfloweth,
sometimes a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do.....

You're killing me....I'm going to have to crawl to the store tonight. I love your new wire storage system, your fabric organization, and now I HAVE to have that SEI paper pad.

I always go ga-ga over storage bins too. Isn't it funny how these little things can bring us so much joy? And your newly filled bins look so inviting...enjoy!

I might have to make a trip to Hobby Lobby and check this out. I love your idea for storing your fabric stash in it. Love your new journal posted the past few days too! Awesome! I love your style!

Pat said...

Your storage solution is beautiful, colorful and efficient. Win. Win. Win.

just lovely! and i LOVE how much you LOVE paper - i have a weakness for it too :)

Pat said...

I LOVE that, too bad we don't have a Hobby Lobby here in the DC area!

Sophia said...

Hey, my paper stash overfloweth, too - but who cares!!! :D

And I LOVE your idea with the wire baskets. I would have never thought of that. I'm always looking for ways to organize my work area.

Happy Thursday!

You found the perfect solution and it looks wonderful! I want one!! I would have to find a corner...how bad is that!

Linda Pruitt said...

Oh . . .I miss Hobby Lobby . . . we had one when I lived in Texas, but none here in Oregon!

Tara said...

How cute is that! Have been looking for neat ways to organize my art/junk room.
Hugs,

Love the basket storage unit...we don't have a Holly Lobby so I guess I will just have to admire yours...love the way you filled it up with fabrics.....could be used for so many different things as need arises....good deal girl...
Hugs and Blessings

Gee - I gotta say it would be a real 'experience' to go shopping with you! So glad to see you having so much fun!

K said...

I hope that just once in my life I get to a HL. Just once. Preferably with you to show me around and preferably with a humongous budget!

Doda said...

I love your storage system!! And I love all the photos you've included - it looks great filled with supplies. What a great pick.

Jane Farr said...

LOL!! I just learned a new Hobby Lobby is opening within walking distance of our house. (My hubby is very concerned....) :)

aimee said...

rachel awes said...

what great finds.
it is ALWAYS such a challenge
to figure out how to store
all this art stuff!
& love your new dear
pad of paper.
great finds!x

Lisa Holtzman said...

Very cute, your fabrics look great in there, good solution for storage. I think I'd have to hang dozens of baskets from my ceiling...I'm out of floor space : (

Love the new birdy journal, so happy, makes me want to write in it and love the wire baskets too. They are so creative just empty and then with all the colors in them, they are so pretty. Ohhh.

make a bird book!

Beedeebabee said...

This is really, really good! Not only will it look pretty sitting wherever you put it, but it will be so easy to see and grab what you want, without lots of rummaging around in dark boxes in the back of the closet! xoxo Paulette ;)

Sara said...

Okay...now I need one in my craft room! what a fabulous find, Lori! :)

..i.ve been gone but now im back.
i.ve missed your blog.
and
yet another reason why we are soul sisters...THE 40% off coupon. you clip it every week don.t you. even if you don.t know what you are going to use it on. hmmm! and probably the michaels and the joanns coupons too...and sometimes they pile up in your wallet and you have to throw away weeks of coupons at a time.
be honest.
im right arent. i?
or at least a little bit close.
hugs.
