Okay, Okay, this is the real WOYWW post

Just a quick peek today at what is good about the stash room/studio/furnace room! You can read my last post for more of what I've been up to (lost mojo, reward offered.)

Remember to stop over to Julia's to see what is on creative desks everywhere for WOYWW. I wouldn't miss it for the world. 

I wanted to focus on the few corners of the room that are organized, since I haven't been creating anything. First are my bins with Tim's Alterations and On the Edge dies. I like how the metal mesh bins stack. Plus there are handles so they can easily be picked up should I ever decide to vacuum / Hoover the floor. 
  
 Next are my stamp bins arranged by season/holiday topped with my Copics and Prismacolor collection.

Finally  a drawer containing my alcohol inks, reinkers and stickles. I put the bottles in cookie tins and greeting card boxes from days of yore. On top of each AI I have glued a circle left over from a paper punch and put a drop of AI on the paper so I have a general idea of what colors are where. Not sure where I picked up this technique, but I like it and I'm not always knocking those tiny bottle over like dominoes. lol



That's it for today, hope you have time to make something fun.

Julia Dunnit said...

Oh how neat and tidy - and threatening to hoover - good grief...I do hoover but in this room I must be honest about rarely picking stuff up...oop!

Carola Bartz said...

Your ideas for staorage are great - I like you AI solution.

I like your storage ideas too, and the idea to share them in the absence of creating something in the week. I will do likewise.
And speaking of vacuums, I have a tiny one designed for computer keyboards, but it's great for picking up much of the dust on the workbench and spilt EP or @%$^*^&$%! glitter.

You are so organised in your storage. I wish I could be that organised.

Ohhhh ... where'd you find the metal bins, the ones with Tim's dies in them? Great stash organization!

okienurse said...

love the storage ideas! I spend way to much time looking for things. I should get more organized!

Ali said...

That's some fantastic storage ideas there! Lovely collection of Tim dies (*goes a little green with jealousy*) and great idea for putting a coloured spot on the top of the alcohol ink bottles... I do something similar with my embossing powders as I store the pots sideways on a shelf unit so it's handy to see the colour on the lid. :)

Thanks for sharing.
