So I was reading my blogging buddy Jessie's post this morning about "How do you organize your favorite embellishments" and decided to join in the chat.
As for what my favorite embellishment is, well, its a no-brainer really.
I loooove buttons!
There is nothing more relaxing than sitting down to a bag of colored buttons and separating them according to size and color.
And so you have.....
(don't you love those teeny tiny buttons in the tiny cases?)
And bleachhy colors that we all hate but sometimes need..lol
Yes, purple is in that category. Sorry, Stacey. :D
I also have one of these "button containers" for flowers but I didn't take a picture as it is so pathetic its almost laughable. I guess you could say I don't use many flowers.
And then eyelets and brads I stick in these little "tic-tac" containers below
Of course it would be optimistic to think I can store everything in these which is why we have:
the junk drawer
this houses all my immediate grab it things. Adhesives, glue dots, paper piercer, decorative corners, select brads (that I have no tic tac containers for, etc)
Its a well used drawer."I know where everything is". Yeah, right!
And then I have Design Team supplies which I keep in gallon size ziploc bags according to company so I can quickly grab a bag when I'm making a specific card for a DT company. Sounds organized doesn't it?
Can you see them? No? Look closer..pretend you're playing "where's Waldo"...
Can you see them now? Almost?
Ahhhh! There they are!!
Where've ya been all my life!
Thats pretty much it!
Have a great day everyone.
Its rainy and gray here so I think its time for hot chocolate!
