As a crafty person, the holidays are like my Olympics. By the time everything is done, my workspace looks like I hosted some kind of very wholesome rave. Glitter, bits of paper, and other supplies are strewn about and I can’t find a dang thing. Clearly I’m in need of some organizational help, but if you know me you know it still has to be pretty. So today I spruced up some boring black office supplies with a little paint and colorful embroidery thread. Check out the video below:

With office supplies like these I almost look forward to tidying up! Do you have any organizing projects on deck for the new year?
