I was delighted back in August to receive this award from Sue. Yes, way back in August and I totally forgot to acknowledge it and add this award to my side bar. I love knowing that someone enjoys my blog enough to bestow this honor! Thanks Sue!!
First is my yellow bin (of course) because it is my favorite color and it makes me smile to see all this sunshiny goodness together. On the left side of the bins, I have a page protector that holds miscellaneous paper accents - tags, die cuts, journal boxes, frames, etc. I have any new yellow accent packages in front of that page protector. On the right side, I have all my letters - stickers, chipboard, etc. I have a small basket in the front which holds small rolls of ribbon, glimmer mist and any other small items (which I usually have in small Ziploc bags). Behind the basket are larger rolls of ribbons, balls of yarn, Ziploc bags with ribbon pieces, lace, thread and bling. Some of my bins have a larger basket in the bottom and seem to stay a little more organized. Right now I'm just working with the system to see what I like and what I might want to change when I decide to take a break from scrapping long enough to change it.
Here's a look into my orange bin which holds the least amount of supplies. It's easy to see which colors I might want to focus on when I'm shopping for embellishments.
And one last bin for today, the blue bin, which has the largest number of items. I'm not sure if I just don't use a lot of blue in my layouts or if I somehow acquired an inordinate amout of blue supplies along the way. I may need to purge some of these items when I sort back through the bins later on, but for now I don't have to worry about running out to the store if I need something blue.
