{Friday "Food" for Thought} Your Crafting Space

So, here's what we're going to do. I'm going to pretend like it hasn't been over 3 weeks since I posted the last "I'm so sorry I've been MIA" post and you guys are going to pretend not to notice. Sound good? Great ;)

I could totally craft something with this!" It's a sickness. 

So, as my collection of supplies has grown, I need to find new and creative ways to organize my small space. In case you're also looking for some new organizational ideas, here are a few ideas I found around the big ol' net:
