Unfortunately, this habit has amassed a large collection of stuff.
I've been working on purging craft tools I'll never use again (or never used in the first place), as well as organizing the tools I am keeping so that anyone who stays in the guest/craft room isn't overwhelmed by the stuff while they're trying to fall asleep!
In the desk, which I'm replacing with a plain table to open up the room a little, you can see 2 cabinets that are holding 3-drawer plastic organizers. Each of those drawers was packed to the gills with crap, so I need to purge a lot of said crap and find a new place for the rest.
Using the inside of the closet door for storage helped a TON, and these Ikea storage boxes have helped too. When I want to work on something, I just open the closet and the possibilities are endless...sort of.
All that to say I organized my cards!
It doesn't look that bad in this photo (or does it?) but it was a huge pile of cards I made and bought but haven't had the occasion to send yet. When they were being stored in the plastic drawer, they were organized pretty much like this, so when I needed one it pissed me off to have to dig through the whole pile to find the card that was inevitably at the very bottom.
So I organized them into categories:
- Blank Inside
I pulled some cardstock from my stash in a fun color, and used some scalloped scissors and some math to create tabs to separate the cards by category:
As soon as July is over I'm going to make over this room! So excited! I have everything I need except a gallon of paint (Richmond Bisque by Benjamin Moore) and an empty frame to turn into a bulletin board!
