I know that this is a day late, but yesterday I went to see that gorgeous great-nephew of mine! He's smaller in person, but also even cuter. Pictures will be following very soon!
This week's tip is on organization. I stamp a lot, and I had been pretty dissatisfied with the way I organized my inkpads for awhile. I had all my dye-based pads in one drawer, all my pigments in another, and all my SU/TAC in another. I even kept all my mini inkpads separate. I didn't know what colors I had anymore! Then it hit me. I had an AHA! moment! Why not organize my inkpads the same way I organize my paper? I had to try it, right then and there.
You see, I'm a COLOR person. Just about everything I do in scrapbooking and card making begins with color. My papers are organized by color, and it works really well for me, so I decided that I needed to do this for my inkpads as well. It's wonderful! I combined some colors, and I still have 3 drawers, but now I can see what colors I have and what colors I need.
I haven't found a need to organize all my embellishments this way yet, but my ribbons and buttons have been that way for quite awhile now. Like I said, I'm a COLOR person. You can be a COLOR person, too!
Enjoy your crafting this week!
