Somewhat Organized Now!

Yup, I can honestly say I am somewhat organized now with some of my craft goodies. Here are a few pics of them! I have very limited crafting space so I had to find ways to really utilize what I have!

I finally trimmed most of my TGF stamps and put them on a large binder. So far this has been working for me just fine! It is kind of heavy though. I simply used one of those cheap 2-inch 3-ring binders along with those stamp and stick storage panels from 7kids College Fund.

Because La La Land Crafts stamps and inky Impressions stamps are all somewhat the same size, I have them in my drawer, all lined up!


This is my sticker collection! yeah, I know, I am crazy! I am addicted to stickers! I don't use them a lot but I do get them almost every time I go to Michaels!

This is actually a towel holder. I had my hubby "fixed" this up for me so I can hang them....yup, it turns! I got the clips from Joanns.
These are some of my flowers. I think this is a spice rack because I got it from the kitchen section....can't even remember the name of the store now. I got this a looooooong time ago! I knew I could use this thing one of these days. hehe That's why I save and keep EVERYTHING! LOL


These are my loose ribbons. This is like that ribbon ring. I got a large book ring from Office Depot, made tabs using poster papers and the Stampin' Up word window punch, threaded the ribbons onto each tab, and then slide them onto the ring. You can use clear plastic for the tab for more sturdiness but to me, it's not necessary. This cost me about I'll say $1 to make it. It just takes a little time. Oh, you can organize your ribbons by colors if you want but since I don't have a lot of loose ribbons, any way is fine.


The spool ribbons, I hang them against my wall, behind my chair. You know, kind of like how you hang your curtains, except, I hand my ribbons using a very small stick.



This is how I store my nesties now. I got this binder from All That Scraps, sticky magnets from Joann's and voila! You will be surprised at how many sets of nesties you can store in one binder! I think I have about 18 sets here!



I also used the binder for my Hero Arts clear stamps, the sets. Love this! For my $1 clear stamps, i have them in CD holders.

I am still working on my craft space. I couldn't believe over the past year, I have accumulated so much stuff! I just wish I have more space....
Well, that's all for now. I do hope you enjoy my little ideas for getting more organized. By all means, if you have a better way of storing your craft goodies, please do share!
