I need a storage solution and I am wondering if you all can help me out! Does anyone have a fabulous way of storing their rub-ons? Right now I have mine in a metal bin but they are all jumbled together - alphas, journaling spots, flourishes, shapes, etc - and it is not working for me. Plus, once I start cutting into a sheet of rub-ons, they don't stand up well in the bin and I end up with small pieces, etc. I have thought of getting folders - the school type ones - and storing them in those... not sure how great that would work???
Also, last month got away from me and I never got the chance to post about my article in Creating Keepsakes Magazine that featured my scrapbook room. It was fun to see it in there! It was interesting to put into words how I store everything and how that translates into my creative process. It really got me thinking about whether or not my room and the way my products are stored facilitate or hinder my whole process.
After I wrote the article and thought more about this whole topic, I realized that I needed to change a few things. It's all about evolving right? When Loni was here she pointed out that I was storing some things in different spots around the room rather than in a common area. Even though it has worked so far, I realized that it would speed my process up if I moved a few things around and stored all like things together. I didn't change any furniture or the layout of my room, just found new homes for a few things - gathered some things together that were scattered about. I have to say that I love it and it has helped speed up my process.
It's something to think about - how do you store your products and why do you store them that way? Does it help to make the creative process easy, inviting and fun for you? I for one like things to be organized and I like my room to be clean. If it gets too messy I simply cannot have a clear mind and focus on my projects. I think that is why I am always re-organizing and purging things - always trying to keep control of the abundance and clutter!
Anyway, I know that many of you have asked to see my scrapbook room, so I hope you had a chance to see the article! For those of you that missed it, I will post some pictures in the coming weeks.
Hopefully you all can help me with the rub-ons! I really want to get that organized in a better way!
Thanks and have a great day!!
