Sorting out the cutting dies spurred me into having a light bulb moment.
I had these wardrobe hangers knocking about for some time and was on the verge of popping them into a charity bag when I thought , they would be ideal to store my card making supplies. The hangers are double sided and in the past I used them to sort Little Miss' hair clips and bobbles and elastic. Little Man had one for his Thomas The Engine engines... for kids pencils, pen etc and little toys they are great.
Well so far I have a washi tape hanger , card topper hangers , perle thread and sewing thread hangers but I intend to order a couple more.
One I am going to store my sewing machine bits like spare needles, bobbins etc (again so I
can see at a glance what I have) I also want one to store craft bits like charms, yo yo and Pom Pom
makers... The storage possibilities are endless, make up, nail varnish, bathroom bits like spare ear buds, soaps, I also have one in my wardrobe where I store necklaces and scarves .
Yesterday I also stocked up on these...scrapbook split. rings..here this packet for £1.(The works) I had been racking my poor old brain for a cheap way/solution to link die cutting sets together and as these rings easily pull apart , problem solved.
Die cutting sets and sets with small dies are so easy to become separated . You can buy magnetic
sheets but this can work out quite costly if you have a collection of dies. I have begun now to ring my die sets in their newly numbered pockets...like this
Nothing like a spring tidy up of craft stuff to get the creative juices flowing. It is so easy to forget
what you have isn't it? This week alone I have been more inspired to do more . Seeing everything I want so easily at hand is so much better for me, rather than my usual trick of trying to remember what I have and where to find it, usually by the time I find what I want I can't be bothered!
Oh and I found this little lovely in The Range...cute or what!
Right better get a wiggle on
I have a couple of swaps and a
present to post
All the little shops and Post Offices
