Part of waiting to have a baby until you are in your mid 30’s is you have lots of time to get very set in your ways. Now we are faced with having to make room for another person. Good thing babies are very tiny to start! M&I are currently grappling with just this issue. He has all his computer stuff and I have loads and loads and loads (you get the idea) of crafting stuff. We have both been doing an admirable job of thinning out and giving some of it away, but when it comes down to it, there will still be some we have to store. Design*Sponge has an easy to follow tutorial that uses clamshell type boxes to make lovely storage books that can sit right on your bookshelf. I don’t happen to have any on hand, but I am pretty sure I have some cardboard that will do the trick. While this doesn’t help us purge any of the items in question it sure does make them look nicer to have around. This may be just the thing I need to finally get my knitting needles under control!
