I found this wooden lazy Susan in the kitchen section and added an inexpensive rubberized mat to the top. It holds all of my pens and pencils, a few adhesives, and tucked behind is a box of baby wipes--very necessary to the mixed-media process!
Another one of my IKEA finds--a wire desk-top letter file which perfectly holds my works-in-progress. I always have several projects waiting to be finished, and this small stacked bin keeps them handy, organized, and in plain sight. I can keep all of the various bits and pieces together until inspiration (or a deadline) hits.
My favorite part of this wire bin system is that I can remove one section and carry it with me to my evening workspace (comfy chair and TV) where I can do handwork (beading/embroidery) or into my wet studio where I can add paint, etc. Love it!!!
