I got this big flower for my room. Oh, they were in every color and SO gorgeous. It is HUGE! about 11 inches across! I love it!
This week on Scrapmuse, we have all started to upload organizational ideas and photos of our work spaces, for an upcoming article Donna Whalen is doing. It always fun to see the ways others organize there things for inspiring ideas.... so I'm sharing a few photos of my space below.
If you want to check out the scrap areas gallery at Scrapmuse , you can do that right HERE
I'm sure there will be lots more uploaded, over the next few days.
I love to use "found" objects, for organization, as much as possible. There is just something about the"hunt" I love. I use the class jars and old glass canisters for tags, ect... I use rub ons to label them.
The inside of the cabinet) top, holds my stamps. I use the stair step , expandable plastic spice shelves , to make them easier to see.
I paint and use old wooden spice racks with jars to hold embellishments. I have dishes ect for buttons , scrabble tiles , and things that I really need to dig through. I've decided I really need to have as much as possible "out" where I can see it, or I forget I have it ,and it doesn't get used. I altered some ugly bargain bin wood containers, with some of my favorite papers, to hold my Fancy Pants, ribbons and rub ons. The old planter holds my paintbrushes.
I use this old soda crate to hold my acrylic paints . I put them in with the bottoms showing ,so that I can see the colors easily.
I bought those flowers for upcoming projects I'm getting started on, and went to put them in the closet,but they were just so colorful and cheerful, I couldn't, ... so grabbed and old coffee can that was holding buttons and just covered it with some pretty paper. I'll just pick away at them from right there! I can at least enjoy them for a while , right?
I'd love to have any of you post any great tips you have for storage and organization. If your like me.. and you have (shall we say, "plenty" of supplies), and you appreciate all the tips for storage and organization you can get! lol
When I was at Paulas yesterday, I finally got to pick up the copies of "Altered Arts" that she had picked up for me. Her and I worked on these funny art dolls together one day. We both ended up getting them picked up for publication in here.
I had NO idea this would be on the cover, so it was a FUN surprise.
Now there's something I bet you thought you'd never see, ..me with a license plate body, wings, wire hair , clothes pin arms, and pippy long stocking socks! lol oh brother! Sometimes, you just gotta have a sense of humor and laugh at yourself, huh?
