Organization: Time To Do Something About All These Art Supplies

I have always been crafty, so over the years, I've built up quite the collection of art supplies. I've never really had a system for keeping everything organized, until now. I had a few big plastic bins, but somehow everything ended up jumbled together in one big mess....more
