Stamp and twine storage idea

Hello friends!! This is just a super quick post to show you how I store my image stamps and twine.

Ok so if you have been visiting my blog regularly you will see that I have become quite the Simply Betty Fan! I have ordered  stamps like almost every week lol and well I was running out of room for them. Then I got all that beautiful twine and had no idea where to store it. So on a trip to Michaels a few weeks back I found these peg boards, they came in a set of 3 for $22.00 BUT they were 40% off, they have extra hangy thingys (a set of 4 for 4.99) also 40% off.

We came home and I had hubby hang them up and this is how they look...
 This is my Wall of Betty haha! I have a hook for each of the lines I have,  the empty space is for the super cute new Burton Chibis that she just released today! I already ordered haha!
 Here is my beautiful twine from the Twinery! I cut the tag from my Preserves cart at 3.5 inches and cut and glued the little tags that are around each color of twine on the tag, wrapped the twine around it and I was done!
 These are two seprate boards 6 hooks fit on each they are on the wall directly next to my desk so they are easy to access and I just love them so much I didnt want to hide them in a drawer lol! I also just bought another set of these boards and am in the process of hanging up my GF stamps  and my CraftySprouts stamps too!
I really like the way it looks and everything is neat and in its place! I am really trying to get my craft area in order so as I find cool things I will share them with you! Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you get a little inspiration from me!

That is a super idea Erika!! When I kick my daughter out of her room and into her college dorm, I am soooo doing this! Just have five more years to go! LOL

In my sewing room, I have used peg board like this for many years. However in my stamp room, I don't have any wall space! I store my twin in little jars and my stamps go in cd or dvd cases. I love this idea though and if I had the room I would do this for sure. Love seeing what I have at glance. tfs Tami

My husband is re-doing his garage, and put up the pegboard. So, then he put some up for me in my craft room. I absolutely love it. It keeps everything out where I can see it and not piled up. I also keep my ribbon on it too. TFS,
(:(:Smiles:):)

This is so cool. Peg board and slat board is awesome. It is all over the walls in my room. One of these days it will get clean enough for public pics but right now it is a mess. Hubby is always telling me I could open a quilt and scrapbook shop with all the stuff that is in my office.

What a great idea. Wish I had more wall space in my crafting area to do this. But I'll keep it in mind for when we buy a bigger house ;)
