I DID IT...the leanin tower of paper :)

LOL it doesn't really lean...just looks like it in the pic
the brown paper holders have my christmas patterned paper
I organized the patterned paper by color groups, sets are in the 2 top shelves, then blues/greens, pinks/red/orange, then the first big drawer has white, black, grey, browns & yellows. The last drawer is cardstock, & the other 2 are cardstock was kinda fun!

My paper is organized!
It actually didn't take nearly as long as I thought it would.
I's a happy girl :)

organize part 3 stamp storage: Stampin Up

yes this is me yelling :)
I am SO tired & so happy
I put all my stamps in the one cupboard & put the done scrapbooks & other stuff in the other twin on the other side of my wall. I am happy to have ALL of my stamps in one place :))))))
I decided to store my stampin up sets in like groupings. Then I put like groupings into one sterlite containor, then made a list of the group & the individual titles on word, left enough room to stamp the actual contents of each stamp set under it's corresponding title & letter, then made a master index & poof done...yeah right it took what seemed like forever, I still have some stampin to do from G onward but at least I have a system I like & can use.
If you have any questions please let me know
Onto paper next...oyeboy can't wait...not...I wish I could blink & it be over...but alas allotta work yet to come
see ya
thanks for comin by

spring cleaning: stamp storage

it's a disease :)))
once you start
you get all stupid
and can't stop
I am gonna start
my 12 step program
and just relax
tomorrow...well and go to hockey :)

You will notice each binder has a label on the outside, inside each binder has dividers, then each sheet of stamps is on it's own transparency, then it is inserted into a clear folder, then into the binder sleeve so nothing falls out. I do not know if I will make a master index or not, I think I will just use them like this for a while. I am also debating on my collection of Stampin Up stamps. I have 2 empty binders, but I have not decided. I also copied all my digi stamps to one folder on my computer, printed them off, put them in the binder and then backed them up on a disk that I put in the front of the binder...yep I know I have issues :))) All this was inspired by a friend Sam thank you for makin me believe I could do it Sam!!!

thanks for coming by, let me know if you have any questions
