WOYWW: Oops, I Did It Again!
And the goods are even more irresistible when we have a coupon in our hand!
I went to Michael’s yesterday, intending to use my 40% off coupon on a pack of markers. And then I saw this:
When I got home, I vowed that I would check it out, and if it didn’t offer efficient and accessible storage space, I would dutifully return in and buy those blasted markers.
But once that paper wrapper came off, all bets were off.
I have to say that so far it seems impractical. The drawers are tiny little trapezoids that fit very little. Almost all of the openings are so deep that anything I put in there falls down so far I can barely manage to retrieve it. (One only has so many rulers to store after all!) It takes up a huge amount of space on my worktable, where room is truly at a premium.
But that photo holder! (Like I I couldn’t just slap a frame on my table!)
So, no, it’s totally impractical.
And, yes, I’ll be keeping it, thank you very much!
If you would like to check out other creative-types’ work spaces (and count up how many of these revolving organizers you can spot!), hop on over to Julia's Stamping Ground. This is a special week, as Julia is celebrating two years of WOYWW with a PiF (Pay it Forward) event. Participants are sending little handmade gifts to one another in celebration of getting to know one another and baring our oft-messy work spaces and works in progress over the months. Very exciting!
What’s on YOUR workdesk this Wednesday?
