Organizing my scrapbook supplies

Did anyone notice that I accidentally published what was supposed to be today’s post on Wednesday? Oh well.  Instead, I’ll tell you about what I’ve done with all my stickers, stamps, and ephemera that were taking over the craft room.

In July, I went to a scrapbook convention, where I learned about something called a ScrapRack.  The woman behind it, Tiffany, was at the convention and so she showed me all about this system she invented to organize absolutely every supply (ribbons, stamps, paper, etc.) you have on hand.

There are pockets and pages of every size imaginable that fit into these velcro-backed 3-ring sections.

I also have taken lots of dabbers and inks off of my desk area by organizing them into dividable drawer units.  Easy.

Happy weekend, friends.  Do something for yourself for fun… just because you want to.

    Sitting at my computer, a cat sprawled across my lap, coffee cup in hand, trying to start my day. It’s always a treat to read your words and see what you have created, Naomi!

    I am impressed with your organized supplies. Now I need the inspiration to do a bit of the same here, only with other kinds of ‘supplies’ and the numerous photographs printed from decades ago.

  2. You are one organized girl Naomi! I have to say I color coordinate my closet too!

    This is awesome, Naomi! Wish I was as organized as you are! Looking forward to a lovely Fall weekend. Eric has it all planned out for us to do some tree trimming and such, which I guess I don’t mind since we will be doing stuff together outside in this lovely weather. Enjoy!

  5. Total envy, here. I love that unit, but I have WAAAAAAAAAAY too much stuff to fit into one. Or two. Or even three. It seems perfectly obvious that I need to reduce my inventory, but the chances of that happening are slim and none. Yes. My name is Janet, and I’m a craft supply hoarder. And I intend to stay that way. (And, yes, that opens up a whole new blog post for me. Thank you in advance. You inspire me!)
