I spent some time getting organized tonight and quickly realized that it's going to take a LOT longer than I imagined to get everything in its place. And I am just talking about my craft area...I won't even begin to write about the other 90% of the house! I did get some important things accomplished tonight, though. Really, it wasn't a total loss...
First, I went through all my gocco ink and got it all into one place. I even wrote down a quick inventory of colors so I know what I have and know what I need. It's taped neatly to the inside cover of my new ink box. This little bit of organization is something that will save me a lot of time when planning projects. Yay!
Next I started a box for thread, string, ribbon and anything else thread, string or ribbon-like. I have a lot more sorting to do so I may need a bigger box before this project is complete.
I also found an old scrapbook with tons of space to add more memories. This is something I really need because I have so many little things (concert tickets, photobooth pictures - I am a packrat!) that are just scattered about all of the time. So I started taping things into that book. Yay!
Then I came across some awesome finds including some fun fabrics
I looove the leopard print fabric. I thought I used the last scraps of it around this time last year to make valentines like these
I am thrilled to have a little fabric left over to play with! I really liked how last year's cards turned out so maybe I'll try something similar.
Well, that is about it. Tomorrow night I will start chipping away at my paper stash. If I keep this up I just might be organized by this time next week!
