As you can see, I painted my “lab” a bright bicycle yellow on Mother’s Day. As I was putting things back in order, I realized that I have an abundance of notions (zippers, buttons, bias tape, etc.) that should have been better organized. All week, I checked Pier 1, Target, Marshall’s and TJ Maxx for decorative boxes to store them in. Nothing popped. I saw simply ordinary, blah yet heavy boxes. Early this morning, the light bulb came on. Why pay anyone $15-29 for something that I can do myself. Think, Tracy, think!!!! I measured the sides and bottom of my USPS boxes and used leftover fabric to cover the boxes myself. Now I have colorful fabric covered boxes to match my damask print valance in my brightly colored sewing room.
This chick is a happy camper!
