Just a super-quick post tonight.
I don't know if you're like me --
always in search of a better way to organize your craft space
to make room for new goodies. ;o)
I was recently asked about how I store my finished cards,
so I thought I'd share a photo.
This is the bookcase in my office.
On the middle shelf there, I have three CD boxes.
I picked them up at Walmart for $6 each.
They're from Mainstays, I believe,
and they come in a couple colors.
I picked them up one at a time,
so the cost wasn't much all at once.
They're the perfect size for cards.
I store folded cardstock in one
(Since a sheet of cardstock makes two cards,
I always fold the second one and save it for later use.),
envelopes in another,
and finished cards in the third.
Just one is enough for the finished cards I have right now.
I try to force myself to actually send them out,
rather than hoard them as I'd like to.
I keep reminding myself that the reason I make cards
is to brighten other people's day.
There's no day-brightening going on
if I keep them all to myself. ;o)
I like to look at pretty things.
That's why the top shelf (not shown)
is dedicated to showcasing my most recent projects.
That way I can look at them for a week or so
before sending them out
or relagating them to the box for later use.
Anyway, I hope that tip helped!
