Pretty Pencil Holder

People who know me in "real" life would never believe this, but my studio is a mess. I'm neat freak when it comes to my home, but my studio? It looks like my high school bedroom. (I wasn't always concerned with being neat, right Mom?) Every once in awhile I go through and get organized and feels so good! I find things I've been missing for months and a good studio clean-up always gets my creativity going.

Since I've been focusing on my illustration work lately, I've collected a large number of pens and pencils and I was constantly digging through unorganized boxes looking for what I needed so I decided to make holders for my collections. I just used old food cans (washed-out of course!) and then covered in them in some beautiful paper by Sabor Papel. Finally, to make sure things go back where they belong, I labeled them with Joy Letters.

Since I've organized myself, I'm finding it's much easier to sit down and practice in my sketchbook.

What supply do you have the most trouble getting organized?
