Enjoy light refreshments and snacks as you craft the night away.

There is so much talk about organization these days, and many books written on the subject that give us the best tips on purging and living with what we find useful and lovely. How we organize differs for all of us depending on our personal style, but regardless of how you choose to place things, it is always a good idea to have stylish storage pieces. I chose a couple of vintage jewelry boxes and a new unfinished wooden box to create custom storage solutions for jewelry and other small findings that need to be corralled and kept in order.
