Jin's Give-Away #4 plus My trip to IKEA!
I went shopping yesterday. Well, you know, a craft room re-org isn't really one until a trip to IKEA. So I tell myself. If there is anything that I can use as an excuse to make a trek there, I'm on it! I wasn't looking for anything specific to buy but I had fun browsing through the furniture. There are so many possibilities!
Take a look at this. I could just shove all my crap inside, close the door and nobody would have any idea what's in there. Nice!
I'm not crazy about this table (too small!) but I love the color. I think my room could use a splash of orange. Yummy!
This chest of drawers has been calling my name for over a year now and even though I always pause to look at it, I can't think of a spot in the craftroom for it. Oh well, guess I'll have to pass it. Again.
In case anyone is wondering about the dimensions, I took a picture of the tag for you. That's right, I said I took it for YOU. I didn't take it for me. Nope not for me at all. I don't need this chest of drawers....I don't need this chest of drawers.....I don't need.....
By the way, the wide ALEX unit has two cousins. I actually bought this tall ALEX some months ago but I have not move it to the craftroom.
You can see the shorter VIKA ALEX on the left side of the picture below.
I didn't end up buying any furniture today but I couldn't leave the store empty-handed. Want to guess what I bought?
Ta-da! A $5.99 plastic bin on wheels! It fits 12"x12" cardstock nicely but the base is not flat. There are 4 bumps where the caster wheels are. I'm really liking that I can roll it around so I'm over-looking that unevenness.
And now, time for today's give-away...
You may know that I share the craftroom with my kids and so while I'm cleaning out my supplies, I'm giving away some of theirs too! Today's give-away is a Large Flat-Rate box of goodies for kids!
Inside the box are supplies for ages 4 and up, for boys and girls. :-)
Here's how to win:

Do you get your containers from online stores or do you prefer to get them from a local shop where you can see and touch them in person? What is your favorite storage thingy/box/jar/rack/ etc.?
