Last week Bong Mee, a painter from PAFA, (Philadelphia Academy of Fine Arts), began interning here with us at the studio.  She has a penchant for organization. What a stroke of luck! Look at what she did to my Kreinik drawer:

For the first time it is in perfect order, colors, types of thread, just perfect!

She is now working on my metal beads and findings, see...

I even went to town on my own, organizing my pearls, crystals and beads. I found that using these small plastic containers, and flipping them upside down allows me to easily see what I have, and the lids stay on tight, so no more spills, or endless amount of embellishments rolling around in the drawers. Now I can see what I have, and what I need.
Now, at least 3 times a day, I will open my precious drawers and just stare.  Then smile. The gently shut them till the next time.

Bong Mee is, as I mentioned, a painter, however she has asked to learn about fibers and stitches and how to put them together.  Yesterday we did our first study period and it was fun to see her interest.  I sent her home with canvas, stretcher bars, a book on stitches and threads of her choice.  I can't wait to see what she will come up with.

Great organization! I've been looking for small containers like these. If you don't mind my asking, where did you purchase them?

These are plastic containers I got at our local AC Moore. They have the little pop up tops and are used for mixing paint and storing it air tight. They are very inexpensive although when you buy over 100 of them... it adds up.

Where did you find the dividers for the kreinik thread drawer?
