Along the lines of organization...
I don't know about you guys but organization is always in progress in my craft space.
I often think along the lines of keeping what I use most within reach. In doing so, I discovered that while that worked well for tools, adhesives & most beloved embellishments it neglected to address the "other" stuff? After all, we do use other "stuff".
I thought about a way to coral the other stuff to make it more accessible & efficient. I seem to spend a lot of time looking for stuff and it is really bothering me of late.My plan is to organize in a way that makes basic sense to ME.
For most of my projects I usually begin with COLOR.
So, I plan on taking things like buttons, ribbons & brads that are all in the same color family & grouping them together then placing them in a drawer system and labeling it by color.
I already have my paper separated by color, I figured why not try that for some of my other items then placing them all in one place. That screams easy access, less time searching for stuff and more use of my stash.
I have not put this idea into practice fully yet but it is a work in progress. If anyone out there wants to try it or already uses the color system be sure to share with the rest of us.
I would be most curious to know how it has worked for you.
Thanks for tuning in today.
Don't forget to drop by tomorrow to check out tool time Tuesday.
Have a wonderful week!
