I love to use bowls and other serving dishes (like cake plates and cupcake stands) in my studio! First of all I love that they look cute and add some style and anyone who knows me knows I am addicted to cake plates! You can find them in almost every room of my house, so naturally they found their way in here too! But then from a functional standpoint I also love that they keep all of my little "bits and pieces" organized and right at my fingertips!
The larger bowls also work especially great to house all of the small embellishments from my Studio Calico kits each month! As soon as I open my kits I put all of the small things into bowls and then they go right on my scrap desk so they are ready whenever I have a chance to dive in and get creative!
