"Organize This"................

Okay.....so I am trying to organize...or reorganize......It really is neverending.....I have added a couple more rods to hold my MS punches......I still only have enough room for most of them...(And I am only speaking to the MS punches...).so I need to rethink the space that I am housing them......I may have to move them altogether because the punches keep multiplying....... 

I added two more of the 7 drawer storage shelves for my stamp collection....and it has quickly filled up...Yep.....no more empty drawers....and this is minus my Stamping Up collection....So..... I am going to have to rethink the stamp drawers also......As soon as I think I have come up with the almost perfect remedy for the MS punches and the stamps....I'll post a pic.....

But............ I have accomplished one of my organiztional missions and included pics. I was looking for someway to have my products list and how-to notes right in front of me and ready to post once I completed the project.  The list also gives me somewhat of an inventory of what I have or products that I use/used.  I was writing on pieces of paper, post-it notes...Y'all know the drill--- I hated having lil pieces of paper, notes and post-its everywhere......

Well, I created myself a lil library.  I came across some leather bound books in M's that I thought were cute....cuz they were little. (hehe..) ..Not tiny...but small enough to write things in, keep near me while creating  and not take up a lot of space.....

I found these in the $ spot at M's  for $5 each.  They each have a letter on the front of them...So I am able to designate them for certain projects.  I have one with a "g" on it ...for guess what?????You got it....My "Gypsy"......And it's purple........(hehe..).   A "C" for my Cuttlebug...The  letter "c" has proven to be hard ones to locate......I also have one with a "m" for my minis....and an "n" for notes. The "E's" are for my expression, create and baby bug. (Don't ask....Hehe....)

Okay, so I thought this was a cute start for a library of my many projects, notes, ScrapLifted items and such....But once I sat them up ...I could not see which was which...because the letters were covered....So, I cut letters using Cricut green vinyl and....... now I can see which is which......Take a look... (Pics below...).....I need another "c" and a couple more with "s".....for my cartridges and stamps and scraplifted items....I'll keep checking to see if they have the letters I need because so far...... this is working for me and I like the look......Well, for now......  anyway....
Soooo...What do you think???????

Wow, Ms. Dee, this is a fantastic idea. I hate having all those post-it-notes everywhere too. I think I need to implement this idea for sure!

Dee... what a great idea. The things that we find. Thats called "thinking outside the box".

So I am not the only person that keeps reorganizing her craft room? Seems like I do that more often then creating something. LOL! Love what you did with the books. I looked at them but couldn't think of what I'd do with them. But I love what you came up with! Thank you for sharing the idea. :)

Great Idea! I saw those too but like just2ducky I didn't think of anything to do with them.
