It was super busy this weekend working in my office at home. I got up at 6 a.m. (I can't believe I did this on a Saturday...I have this internal clock that won't let me sleep in.) and I started reorganizing all of my colored card stock. I put all of the card stock in binders by colors. I put each color in a sheet protector. (One binder has blues, one has reds and so forth) This is one of Arlana's ideas and I have been wanting to do it but just haven't gotten around to it. It took me all day.... but now it is done. I am so proud!!! I can finally stand looking at my shelves. I almost know what I have now...what a concept. I just need a nice place to store my 12 x 12 paper and I will be set.

Arlana has a super fun sketch this week over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday. I ended up doing two cards because I loved the sketch so much. It is simple but so fun with the added border around the image.

  11. Oh Nancy I do know what you mean about orgainising colours I did this the other day with two big plastic containers of ribbons into size colour and if they were on reels they went into another container, I just wish that my crafting table would stay tidy and the crafting fairies would tidy it up every night!!!
