---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Welcome to WOYWW, a slightly different version today. Instead of my boring desk, I will share with you one of my favorite crafting storage areas. It's located right behind my desk and has a lot of products that I use on a continual basis. If I had a massive desk, they would be up on it...somehow. From this shot you can see that I just swivel my chair to access anything back there.

I like to think of it as "organized chaos".
My white wooden stand is a laundry shelf that was made to go in between a dryer and washing machine. It's also on wheels so it can be moved easily if need be. The contraption that holds my foam paint brushes is an old toothpaste holder that is usually inside those medicine cabinets.
 I go go into a lot more detail of the things back there, but I don't want to bore you because I know you have a lot of desk to visit today, so happy snooping!

Clever way to store your brushes. and of course, the first thing I saw were all those magnets. My fridge used to look like that before I decluttered it.

Happy WOYWW from 21.

Woot! Girlfriend you have a lot of fun stuff to play with there. I am like you if I keep it out where I can see it I use it so my desk and behind me is always covered! I mean now really if it is horizontal it is meant to hold stuff right! Thanks for sharing. Vickie #26

Love the reuse of the toothbrush holder.. You are very organised and tidy but with some things its the only way to go as I hate wasting valuable crafting time looking for something.
Your wall is awesome its the one thing I don't have is a wall to put things on.. Love the palm tree and the castle they look fab..

OMG Sandee, this is totally giving me food for thought. As I have just moved to NYC my craft space is a bit makeshift and I am going to take my time getting it right, but I know what you mean about all the things you want to have on your desk..I suffer from that too :) Cx
