Thinking outside the {shoe} box

Happy New Year!! I cannot believe that 2010 is already here, I remember thinking that it seems so far away just a couple years ago and now it's here! With the new year, we all have our resolutions. If one of your resolutions is to be more organized, I have an easy way to store all of your crafts tools. A shoe holder. This is great because they are clear so you can see what is in each slot. Plus if you don't have a craft room, you can just put it over a closet door. I love mine! I put my paper punches, stampin around rollers, scraps of ribbon, brads, buttons and other fun tools in it.
Funny story, a couple months ago we were having a shoe problem. I love shoes and so my kids have a lot of shoes but they were always everywhere. I'm so used to thinking outside the box, the thought of using a shoe holder for shoes didn't come to my mind until I went to someone's house and they had one with shoes it in. The funniest part is I had another shoe holder in a cabinet for two years and still wasn't using it. I guess using things for what they are supposed to be used for is a good idea too :).
