The comfort of glitter

With all the harsh news we see, hear and read about, here is something that cheers me up. I rescued this silver holder from Westminster Lace's going out of business sale a million years ago. Last year I started amassing a nice variety of glass glitter colors. When I figured out these glass jars, that I also had on hand, fit in the little cubbies, I was in business. It's nearly a work of art, and handy to use too. -- Beth

I love your glittery display!

I'm always torn between wanting my art supplies to be fun little works of art in themselves vs. needing to store stuff in practical bins and boxes due to the sheer volume of stuff I've collected.

If something is out of sight, I tend to forget I have it. On the other hand, if it's displayed in a creative and inspiring way (like your glitter) it makes me happy each time I see it and I'm inclined to embellish everything in sight.

If only I had about 10 times more shelf and wall space to display my fodder.

What's a poor artgirl to do?
