So, you are probably wondering where am I suppose to put all this stuff.  It really is not as big as it looks and you don’t need to become a hoarder.  I use a large plastic tote to keep excess, then a small rope (about 3 yards in length)  that is attached to my ceiling, clothes pins are used to hand my gallon zipper bags, that have a small supply of all my materials. No matter how you choose to store your materials, you will now never miss a creative moment.  It is fun to be a bit spontaneous, a bummer when you don’t have the materials.

Here is how you can make your own cheap and easy art storage.
