corners of my home: organizing scraps in the studio

Thanks for the "corners of my home" love everybody. Here's a corner that is coming along slowly but steadily--it's an area for holding my scraps and sorting them into colors. I am finally getting on top of my scrap mess with the help of these bags. My plan is to cut my scraps into usable pieces as I work on projects and sort them by color according to the log cabin square on the front of each bag. Hopefully I'll never have a such a big pile of unsorted unusable scraps again.
On top of this little peg rack are some inspiring postcards of the moment. I like to change them around by the seasons. Maybe these are not exactly fallish, I don't know, but I do like the color scheme of yellows and aquas.
I'm loving the yellow bag best of all. I have two more in the works: black and pink. On Sunday I made the yellow bag and cleaned the front half of my studio. It feels great. What about you? Done a chore or organized something that makes you feel great recently?

I'm trying to organize my guest room right now which means I am also trying to organize my craft room too. My craft room constantly spills over into the guest room. Really like your scrap bags. So cheerful looking!

That is a fantastic idea, I have been at a complete loss as to what to do with all of my scraps. It is so tidy and looks so cute and organized. It's great.

Those bags are wonderful. I am looking for some new ways to organize my scrap pile as well.

I just made a really similar fabric wreath as the one shown in your photos. Perfect time of year for putting scrap yarn to decorative use :)

Mary Beth - that's probably the best idea I've seen yet for organizing scraps. I'm pretty sure you won't mind if I 'borrow' your idea?

Love, love, love this idea! And it just looks so darn cute hanging there, too.
