The topic: Organization. It’s a good thing

----------------------------------------------

Something happened yesterday that was a first. I have a couple of projects in mind and I wanted to get started on them. I was able to pick out my paper and cut it (fresh blade - no problems, no redos, no frustration!). I'm ready to start gluing.

It was great! I mentioned this to Brian and he said "isn't it good to be organized?"

Yes. Here are some photos of how I'm organized. (Clicking on a picture will take you to a bigger photo in my family album; clicking on that picture will open a larger photo.)


The workbook - list of all svg files as well as photos of the kits

 


A five inch binder - I went big and heavy duty so it would last a while

 


Project list - kit name and information about the kit

 


I used letters from a foam alphabet I bought at WalMart

 


Kit photos

 


The storage cabinet - best thing ever -

 

It holds a lot! The top shelf has my glitter and embossing powders, cord and thread, brads and eyelets, other specialty papers (like for DIY tattoos). 
The second shelf has patterned paper stacks on the left, solids on the right, the center stack on the second shelf is white cardstock.
Third shelf has seasonal and specialty paper (like vellum) on the left and K&Company paper on the right, the center container has single sheets of different cardstock - solid colors or pages I've printed out.
The bottom shelf has the transfer paper that I use when I make shirts and my big box of embellishments.
I also have the paper cutters and stampmaking kit in this cabinet.

 


Left door - using the peg storage system

 


Right door - cutting mats and acrylic stamps

 


I have so many clear stamps they'd fall off of the hooks. Using the clothes pin embellishments I'd gotten from Walmart a few years ago took care of that problem.

 


The other side - the rubber storage bins have ink pads, rubber stamps, pens, embossing folders, adhesives, ribbons, punches and more, all in easy reach.

So, there you have it. My organized storage area. And it seems to be working. Yesterday was just amazing at how smoothly it went.

(Oh, and here's a shout out to my friend Allyson - with the exception of the heat press stuff, this is all on you...you're the one who got me started!)
