There was no Sunday Sketch this week because I’ve been tearing apart my craft room. And by tearing apart, I mean putting things in boxes and taking them out of the room to reorganize. I had to work on a card for my best friend’s husband and I had my niece (their daughter) over to “help”. At one point she said to me, are you going to organize this stuff? Because if you aren’t, I will! (She’s 7!) I would have been more than happy to let her, but then I wouldn’t know where anything was! HA.
To help me organize my stamps (the wood mounted ones at least), I got two Martha Stewart cubbies that fit nicely on my desk. A couple of weeks ago, I cleared out some space and took the chest of drawers out of the closet area and put it next to my desk. On top of that, I placed a larger set of Martha Stewart cubbies. (This one is a six holed cubby versus the two smaller, fifteen holed cubbies). I organized my wood mounted stamps by category (Christmas, birthday, thank you, etc) and placed each category in a cubby. Most of them needed to lay down or be on their side, so for me to know what was in each cubby, I stood up one of the larger stamps at the opening.
I would say that 95% of my stamps are accounted for at this time. I am sure that I have some on my desk (probably some under it as well!) and some downstairs. But, now I have a system for putting them away. If only I knew what to do with my abundance of clear stamps…….sigh.
I still have a long way to go before the craft room is total organized. The next big step is finding a home for those clear stamps – one that makes sense and I can find what I am looking for. It’s difficult because I have tiny stamp sets and huge ones. If anyone has any ideas, I can sure use some!!
You can check out a picture of the progress on my Facebook page. (Link below) Again, it may not look like much, but it really IS progress. I swear! Oh – and there are two pics of my cats on there. They are liking the craft room update as well!
