I learned this from the designer that came to help me with my basement renovations.
She made this beautiful covered cork board for me. ( as you can see it's being put to good use)
She suggested that I use push pins to keep my items organized on the cork board. It was a great suggestion. Now I can access my dimensionals, scissors, and tape really easily and it doesn't get lost on the crafty mess on my table. (I assure you my table can get craaaazzzy when I am in major crafting mode)
As you can see I also use push pins to display favourite pictures. Wow that wedding photo is a real Throwback thursday photo!!!
