I have something very exciting on the horizon in the desk department, but for now, for official international desk day here are some pictures of my new button tray. I just got the best ebay score in the mail this week. I won a big lot of buttons for $10 and I’m so happy with what I got! So many great buttons, mod ones, simple ones, shiny ones. I love them! So I dug this printers drawer out from the basement and I set it up as my new button drawer. I’m going to keep it slid underneath my fabric shelves. Hopefully it won’t be too hard to get at, it will definitely keep me motivated to keep my craft room tidy. Before this I had all my buttons in a bag and every time I needed one I’d have to dig through them all. Now it will be so easy to look at them all at once!
Here’s what I’ve got so far. Most of my ebay buttons are in here and I still have a few odds and ends to dig out of various locations.
And I still have to go through this whole bag of clear buttons from that same ebay auction.
Here are some close ups..
