Some Of My Favorite Creations To Date

Thursday, September 23, 2010

OK...I admit it...I have a problem! LOL!

When you store all of your crafty goodies here and there you just don't think about how many you have.
I think I am a hoarder!
I had my Tombows on top of my work table, my Prismacolor pencils and watercolor pencils on a shelf, my Copics in a drawer. I decided to organize my studio and one of the things I did was to create a "color corner" where I put the coloring mediums that I use the most all together for easy access.
 WoW...that's a lot of big kid colors!


Same thing with my brads. They were all kind of scattered between jars, and SU divider boxes, in baggies etc. I had a couple of organizers that I found in the hardware department that were being under utilized. I had no idea that I had that many brads! Before, I never could find the exact colors I needed, when I needed them so I would go buy more. Now they are assorted by type or color family and individual hues are in tiny baggies.
So much easier to find what I need!

Now, if I could only figure out what to do with the mountains of cardstock and designer papers that are quickly filling my space!
I have admitted I have a problem. That is step one of the program....right? LOL!

Have a great day!
Hugs your way!
True :D

I recently reorganized both my quilting fabrics and patterns and my "art" and paper crafting area. I, too, was surprised at what I had but was glad there were not much duplication. Love your work, thanks for the inspiration!

I cannot tell a lie: I am a hoarder! But, I use everything I own, lol. Great job on the organization.
