Someone created a cute alterable "thing-y" where she was going to keep track of her "New Year's Resolutions", except she chose to call them goals, and instead a few BIG goals, she gave herself weekly, monthly, etc. goals. I LOVED this idea (and if I can find her item and post, I'll link it here). Anyway, as I have been working on "getting myself together" and getting my "goals" thought out and on paper I decided a couple of things. 1. My stamp room REALLY needs some better organization (especially now that I've branched out and have way more than just Stampin' Up! stuff). The other things I've realized are boring and irrelevant, lol. So my Room needs an "overhaul"! In order to get this done in a timely manner (I am very task driven and want things done NOW!), I'm going to have to plan my time well. My scrapbooking goal for this year is going to be on hold until this room is done, and since someone else took my Challenge idea and ran with it for themselves, this shouldn't be a big deal :). So, I spent Saturday cleaning out and organizing my stamps (you can see some of the sets I have for sale here), now mind you I've already done a TON of work in the "sorting area" so I had a good head start.
Here is the front of some of those binders, I also listed the contents on the front.
In the inside of each binder I have the images on a sheet of cardstock along with the name. For companies like Gina K, I use the inserts that come with the sets and Taylored Expressions prints their images on the binder sheet itself. All of my Paper Makeup Stamps images are in a big binder, if you didn't see that one before you can see it all decorated here. I have a rather hard time finding Stamp Room organization ideas that will work well for me, which is why I haven't gotten my room done sooner. While "blurfing" the other day I came across Patter Cross' blog, which not only has some awesome idea's but she got me thinking and really helped me figure out the rest! She does an "Organizational" post on Fridays. My next task, is to organize my ribbons, thanks to Becca Fekken, for her awesome idea. As soon as it's done I'll show you what I did (and her idea). Thanks for stopping by, I hope I didn't bore you to death... if I can get this "cold" under control a little I hope to have some eye candy tomorrow. Hope you have a wonderful day!
