I have been one busy bee organizing my craft room - FINALLY!
Using the tools I'm learning from Tiffany Spaulding of The Scrap Rack, I have made some serious progress.
First, let's discuss my paper addiction. I knew I had a lot of paper, but I had no idea just how much paper I actually owned. Ladies and Gentlemen, I present Exhibit A. Dios mio that's a lot of paper!
There is a real system in place - some of which is visually easy to understand (like the top row of paper - the rainbow section) - and I can't wait to go back and truly finish organizing each subsection. In fact, I've already benefited from this process. I know what I have a lot of, and I can easily find certain thematic paper for projects. Knowing what you have makes you create effectively and efficiently.
I've now moved on to sorting my embellishments. This process is going to take forever...but using the same process as I did with the paper, I'm slowly sorting my many piles of supplies.
As I sort through stuff, I've been emptying storage bins and purposely taking them out of the craft room. My hope is that these storage units will not make it back into the craft room unless they are absolutely vital to this re-org process. I want to de-clutter and eliminate items that will slow me down when creating.
