You know how you go into a store for one thing and come out with more than just that one thing? Well I went to the local scrapbooking store this morning to get a new Staz-on ink pad because the one I had here had gone dry (ARGH! It wasn't that old and it's already no good, but that's another story!) and decided to have a wander 'round the store. Big mistake! I spotted this book on the shelf and somehow it ended up coming home with me.
Title aside, the photos and ideas for organizing and storing art supplies caught my eye. I don't know about anyone else, but I LOVE looking at how people organize things and I find such satisfaction in creating a clean and functional workspace. (I've been working on improving my own for the last 2 weeks and am determined to have it ship shape by then end of summer.) While this book wasn't cheap ($37.99 CDN *gulp*) it was enticing enough that I had to own it.

I am off to read it with a packet of Post-It Note arrow markers so I can mark the pages that inspire me. OOOOO the eyecandy!!
