A Need or a Want?

I saw this oh so cute wall organizer at Michaels. I really really like it...but guess what! It is a want, not a need. So I got to thinking, ... how can I make this happen? Well it just so happens that I have this piece that used to hang in my bedroom. My mom bought it for me at a craft show years ago. It has been in my shed collecting dust. Well, it now hangs in my multi purpose room (toy room/ craft room/ office). I got out my old canning jars that were also in the shed. I started putting little odds and ends like buttons, silk flowers, glitter, rhinestones...stuff for crafting in the jars. I like the finished look. It will be easier for me to find those small pieces I need for whatever craft projects I am working on, and best of all it didn't cost a dime. Now, that cute little scissor caddy...that's a different story. I might really NEED that!
