"Prettying Up" My Studio.....Part 1

A few weeks ago, some bloggers got together and posted looks into their lovely art studios.
After looking at these spaces, I decided to straighten up and "pretty up" my studio as it was very messy and unattractive. In observing the other spaces, I decided one of the reasons I disliked my space was because it was so utilitarian with most of my items in plastic containers or boxes.
So I went to TJ Maxx and purchased 3 apothecary jars for $5.50 - $7.50 and away I went. I filled each jar with some of my items and added one of my handmade tags to 2 of the jars and voila', I had a much nicer space in which to create. It's certainly not perfect, but I like it soooo much better.
I will show more photos of this "prettying up" process on a future post.
Thanks for looking and I LOVE your comments!
(Please forgive the different colors and fonts used here......I'm technically challenged and can't figure why the font changes and the color of the type changes as I write. Any help would be appreciated.)

It's so much fun pretty-ing up a studio! I'll be doing that too, soon. The planning part is fun too! ::Jill

The apothecary jars look so pretty filled with all the ribbons, lace and spools, etc. And pretty pin cushion looks right at home!! Great idea about the shoe rack to store those ribbons!

I love the jars and what you did with them! I want to get a large one to put my beach shells in. The over the door rack for your ribbon is a grand idea! You are one smart cookie! Looking good!!
