I am writing out my to do list for this week, but I wanted to pop on quickly.
The last couple weeks were a bit rainy off and on, so I used some time in my craft room to check a few things off that to do list. I really love to get the room cleaned up for summer. Make an area for McKinley to find useful too.
I think that my room is ever evolving as I find what works best for me. Most of what I do in here is cards, Project Life and Sewing. So when the mood strikes, I do want my table cleaned off so that I can sit down to do what I want, instead of using that time cleaning up the last projects. I’m crazy like that.
I set up an area right off my table for my everyday stuff. These are the things I use the most in my room.
I am in the mood to paint these cabinets again. I am thinking about some pretty patterned paper on the fronts and paint the bases a solid color.
And I’m also in the mood to paint the walls in here a blue color.
In the top drawer, I have my dies and embossing folders for my Big Shot.
The right side holds my Embossing folders as well as some dies that I have from Stampin Up, which already come packaged awesomely. On the left is the rest of my dies for my Big Shot.
I’ve shared how I previously stored them HERE, and that worked for me until recently.
I purchased some Storage Envelopes and some magnetic sheets from Ellen Hutson.
I now have all of my dies contained to one of these Stampin Up boxes.
Side note, I love these boxes and have had for years, but this year they are retiring them. Boo. I couldn’t get any more, so I may have to change if my collections grows anymore.
I am super happy with this transition, as it’s going to keep things much more organized for my dies.
On the con side, the magnetic sheets are not as tall as the packaging, so there is some wasted space there. I wish that either the magnetic sheets were bigger( more dies on them) or the envelopes were smaller (I could put the lid on this box if I wanted to.) However, all of these are just fine with my. Just thought I would share for your information.
My long border dies do fit in here, so that is a great bonus to the envelopes being so big.
It’s also hard to see, but I have dies on both sides of the magnetic sheet.
I already had some magnetic sheets that I put some dies on. I just used them up as well, and put them in the envelopes.
One bonus to these boxes is that tray that lays in the bottom. It is a nice divider to help keep them from floating all over in the box.
So there is a little peek in my room. I’ve created three birthday cards this last week and mailed them all without photographing them. Sorry, not sorry.
I am hoping this week to get some projects done in the garage. Pinterest has been calling me and I’m ready to use that inspiration!!
