Projects in Progress

Scrapbook Paper Re-Org   In the picture below: my scrapbooking paper, in the dividers on the shelf, mostly organized by color. More scrapbooking paper in the big clear bin below, not organized. I LOVE to organize my scrapbooking stuff. Re-organization usually happens after a big project and I realize (as I'm trying to find a certain embellishment or colored paper) I need an easier way to find that certain something. After being hired to complete two different 12x12 albums over the past couple months, I've realized I need more organization for my paper.


Before:


Now, I've split up the solid colors from the prints. So immediately after the "Pink" tab, is a "Pink (Patterned)" tab. BUT now that I've finally gotten all my paper in the 12x12 organizers, everything is majorly squished. So now I need a few more of these 12x12 organizers when finances allow. I'll take a picture when I've finished the project. Can't wait to finish, so in the future if I just want, for example, a blue solid piece of paper for a matte behind a photo, I'll be able to find it much faster than searching through patterned AND solid blue paper.

ANOTHER PROJECT: Spring planting    Although we live in an apartment, we have an area in front of our door and up our walkway that I fill with potted plants.This area does not get a lot of sun, but cute flowers survive pretty well (when I remember to water them) during the spring. We purchased some bulbs and plants from the 99 cent store this past Saturday and Sunday happened to be a perfect day to start planting. I hauled the plants to my table on our patio to start the project. Shown are my new little plants and bulbs in the front and a few of my ready-to-be-cleaned-up pots in the back. The succulent plants found in almost every pot of mine are my favorite since they don't require much water and LOVE the shade. But I do get tired of having only green plants, hence the annual spring flower planting. 


 So once the bulbs have started to come up (fingers-crossed) and it looks all spring-y, I'll post a picture.

  3. Wow... I'm impressed with your organization. I can never decide how to organize paper, and if I do it by color, I can never seem to find anything. I don't have cool cases though either. I just lump everything together by designer. :/ Great job on your post.
